Governor Tarkin by stratosmacca Governor Tarkin by stratosmacca
Well, you probably figured this would come sooner or later, right?

What Grand Moff Tarkin should have looked like in Revenge of the Sith instead of the... thing we got.

I heart Peter Cushing.

No doubt the finest imperial officer the empire has ever produced.

That gaze....probably makes you feel a foot shorter than really you are if he gives you that look in person. Well done! and down with face-prosthetic tarkin in ep III.

Wonderful. Peter would have been so happy with this. I still have the pic he sent me when I was a little kid back in 76 saying "Here is my picture from a new movie coming out soon called Star Wars. Don't ask me what a Grand Moff is becuase I'm not really sure but I am playing a very bad man."

Wow, I think this makes me love Peter Cushing even more (if that is possible). Thanks so much for sharing!

Absolutely amazing. I'm a huge Peter Cushing fan, and this is probably the best picture I have seen of him! You've captured him perfectly.

Number 1: Guh.... *drools* You've really got a knack for capturing his eyes, well done. :)

Number 2: It's either a credit to your talent or further evidence that I spend too much time in my head that I thought for two seconds that I was looking at Scout Cmdr. Stark. *headdesk*

In any case, wonderful job!

Number 1: Thanks! There are a couple of scenes in Brides of Dracula where his eyes perfectly match a blue tie he is wearing (sooo striking!), and I was trying to sort of recreate that by matching the color of his eyes to the blue in his badge thingy.

Number 2: And I won't deny that there were a number of times while working on this that I thought of Stark as well! ;)

Huzzah for heat! This means you can be all toasty warm and read every goddam thing I've sent you this week! :typerhappy: (Understanding But Impatient Writer is understanding but impatient.)

Srsly, the backlog is scary... and apparently has impact? idk... But I showed D. the Avon/Anna 'reunion scene' and she... fell out of her chair or something?
