Star Wars - Like Father, Like Son by Renny08 Star Wars - Like Father, Like Son by Renny08
YAY!!!
I finally finished this one :'D

Hahah, after all those Anakin's, I just thought I'd give mah dear Luke boy some love :D
And what background could suit them more than the epic Tatooine sunset shown in Episode IV? <3

Haha, actually, there's more to this pic...and if you know me, you also know what's coming- exactly!! HELL LONG DESCRIPTION/RANT AHEAD. Read to your own risk (or maybe don't read it at all).

Ok, so, since I came back into the Star Wars fandom I've talked with quite a lot people who claim to hate the New Trilogy, that "it sucks", that "the characters are bad" and so on. While I completely disagree with that, because both trilogies have their flaws and their own good things, and it's pretty much senseless to compare them since they are just so different (and if you really hate the NT you can just ignore it! The Classic can stand on their own after all) I have to admit that sometimes, during this kind of conversations, I have had these INSANE THOUGHTS like "Oh God, enough with this Classic Trilogy!!". Then, every time I realized what I was thinking, regained reason and I was like "What the hell am I thinking?? I LOVE the Classic Trilogy so much D:" and so I felt like clarifying something by drawing this thing...

Point is, I just hate it so much when people came to me just to insult the New Trilogy and say that I shouldn't like it. WTF? Everyone has the right to like what they like. In my case, the NT, Episode III in particular, has a very personal meaning to me. People can say it's the worst movie ever, and I will still LOVE every.single.second of it. And find the good in it.

Yeah, mostly when people insult the NT I feel like they're attacking Episode III, so I feel insulted as well...xD sigh! Ok it's stupid, but that movie means a lot to me...

Don't get me wrong: of course it's good to share opinions and talk, but some people with whom I talked (not here on dA yet though) are just really disrespectful of others and keep insulting like their opinion was God's word or something ._.'

My point is: only because you dislike the NT, or don't see the good in it, be it Episode I, II or III (like Obi-Wan couldn't see the good in Vader anymore, unlike Luke : D Oh ok I'll shut up now) doesn't mean that there isn't any, or that other people can't like those movies for their own tastes or simply for personal reasons, like having watched them in a particular period of their life (like happened to me) or just because they have different thoughts from yours... for example, let's take the most hated: in Episode I there may be a lot of bad things/script/whatever you want, but personally I love Qui-Gon's character, and how insecure Obi-Wan seems as a young padawan, and the final duel with Darth Maul. So what? For these reasons, I like Episode I (since I was 7 lol) and I can't really change that.

I really can understand where people who hate the NT come from though (and I never claimed one trilogy is better than the other) ; I know the feeling of waiting for something so much, hoping it will be cool and awesome and then feel disappointed, because it happened to me with other stuff. (as for SW, I watched the New before the Classic so...xD) But that doesn't mean they have to insult people who like all the six movies or make them feel like they are inferior or something...haha! XD Personal taste is personal taste lol.

Anyway, there are also people that love the Classic Trilogy more but still respect the New, and those are the guys with which is good talking and sharing opinions. But I guess this works with everything and every subject, not only SW. Nobody likes to talk with those know-it-all that only want to be right and feel superior to others. ._.

Sorry again for the long talk! I just wanted to make things clear on my side 'cause I had this on my stomach and I don't wanna fight over something I love so much...I just think everyone should talk respecting each other's opinions!

PEACE!!!! :D

Anyway to cut it short....I LOVE THE WHOLE STAR WARS SAGA AND NOTHING WILL EVER CHANGE THAT! :D
And it was about time I'd drew these two together!!! I think I'm starting to see Luke's character under a new light, and I can't wait until I get the chance to re-watch the oldies 8D

I really enjoyed drawing this, even though it's a hard period for me and everything, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did drawing it :D

Now it's better that I go to bed because it's really late!

PS: yep, that awful round thing behind Anakin is Owen and Beru's house xD

Great drawing and good debate on the fan base of SW. 'To each his own,' I say. I love all the movies, and the huge fan-base it has created. Sure, there are flaws in the FB and the movies, but nothing is perfect. 
Anyway, love the drawing, you do great work. Keep being awesome. :D

Love this♥️ And THANK you! I love the newer trilogy, especially episode II, even though there's obvs some poor writing, there's lots of emotion and great design (costumes, set location, etc). I get sort of tried of everyone making fun of the NT. The other day a teacher said episode II was terrible and I had trouble paying attention to anything he said for the rest of class lol. I do love the original trilogy though; I grew up watching it. But the newer has some important things going for it. I think people don't give it enough credit. Anakin went through a lot, and Padme was so mature for her age. Ani, Padme and Obi-Wan are my little dream team, even if they didn't make it... bad things happened, but I still love what they had in those episodes before the dark side seeped in.

Huh. Usually when I hear people attacking the prequels, it's one and two, begrudgingly admitting that three was actually pretty good. I like all of them just fine (though the original definitely had a lot more going for it, like Harrison Ford's ad-libbing). My least favorite is probably two, because the romance as portrayed in that one is kind of awkward. When I was a kid, it was "Romance. Boring." and as an adult it's more "um... they kind of made Anakin look like a stalker..." But I also really love that one because I bonded with the clones in "The Clone Wars" and I can enjoy watching them without the whole Order 66 thing souring the mood. And also because Ewan McGregor is hilarious and awesome in that one. I did see Classic before the Prequels (I was practically raised on Star Wars... I can remember watching it as a pre-school or early grade-schooler), but since I was so young when episode 1 came out, like you, I can enjoy it on it's own merits because I didn't have preconceived expectations when I first saw it. I'm also not much of a critic, and usually try to find something nice to say about any movie/book/whatever I'm exposed to. Though there are some things that just are no good for me (most anime, for example).

Anyway, about the picture: It's beautiful, and I love the camaraderie between father and son. Another "*Sigh* If only" moment :)

To think: if Anakin was honest and admitted his marriage, he'd have his fellow Jedi to help him with family matters, and Palpatine would have to rewrite his own endgame

I completely agree; I grew up with the NT and watched it before the Original, so I don't see any issue with either really. They are both flawed and good in different ways. My theory on why so many people complain so much on the new trilogy is because they expect too much or want it to be like the old. Only problem is you can't make it like that.

I so agree with you! I like the episode II the most, even more than the original trilogy, and I really don't feel like Hayden is such an bad actor as everyone seems to claim. I love how the new trilogy (idk if we can call it new trilogy anymore when there's the force awakens but whatever) tells the story of Anakin and I really don't get why people hate it so much :D

Anyways, this drawing is amazing, thanks for making it :) <3

One thing; Anakin has his lightsaber, so Luke couldn't, which means that, in theory, Luke's lightsaber should be green. Also, why on Tatooine? But damn, great job!

If you notice they're holding the same lightsaber, and it is the same lightsaber :) this one was meant to be some kind of SW poster of the two trilogies intertwining. So the lightsaber they both owned is the "symbol" of the passage from the NT to the OT. Tatooine is also the most symbolic place when it comes to Star Wars, in my opinion.
Thanks a lot! :D

Luke really resembles his father. It's cool that Luke is able to train with his dad. It would be cool to see Leia being trained too; one of the complaints I have about the series is that Leia was never given the chance to given the chance to train like her brother because I find it hard to believe she didn't have the same innate abilities as her dad and brother and when they found out she was Luke's brother they should've trained her like they did her brother. It's not really fair to tell people what other people like. Personally, I thought the third movie was kind of disturbing because it was so dark and sad; I know that's the storyline and it had to happen that way but it still gave me an uneasy feeling but maybe that's why you like it so much.

I think Leia should be her Aunt Snips padawan and Luke should still be his Uncle Obi-Wan's padawan or be trained by his father. I could also imagine Anakin just unofficially training both the twins rather than them being someone else's padawan.

Hello.
I completely agree with you, but whenever I got to Tumblr or Instagram the 99% of fangirls always post NT, so you might say im a little fed up with that. I love EpIII very much too, its an important one for the saga to be fulfilled. Loved the artwork, wish that couldve happened... Waaaah!

Nope. Personal taste is what allowed the NT to come into being, therefore certain  personal taste is the cause of the problem so those people need to be disciplined for liking that. Just kidding! :XD: You can like it if you want! I like Episode 3, but Episode 2 sucked so bad that it ruined some of 3's potential.

But the best part of the new Star Wars Trilogy is because I think it probably led to you creating all this art I've been looking and, and MAN this art is amazing. The look. The concept. Oh, the expressions. Your art is probably better than the entire Nt, for real! Your short SW comics pictures in this series are amazing.

Hahah, thank you very much! I'm glad you like my stuff this much :D
OT vs NT is an endless debate that will never end... so yeah, I've come to a conclusion that my philosophy is enjoying the stuff we got, and if we don't enjoy it, just don't attack the people who do ;) that doesn't go only for Star Wars but for everything in general. Some of the people I got to chat with just weren't open for a decent debate and just dismissed every little thing that went against what they were saying, even if it was CLEARLY a matter of personal taste, therefore not really an objective matter. It's not fun to exchange opinions that way :/ constructive debate is always much better even when having different opinions! :highfive:

Longer Reply since you sent a longer reply than I expected! :D (and typed a lllloooonng description) :iconwalloftextplz:

I don't know if the old VS new debate is totally based on opinion, because there appears to be one thing you never want to have when making a movie. The big problem was the expectations that people who saw the old movies first had. With any movie, it's very important to make sure that viewers get what they're expecting, whatever it is, even if it's the unexpected. If the movie isn't what people expected, they'll hate it no matter how good it is.
Did you ever see the movie Batman and Robin? Everyone HATED that movie. But I saw it, and the thing was just that everyone who saw it expected another serious :batman: movie, but really it was silly and made for kids... but they didn't present it that way. If they had marketed it as if it were Ninja Turtles :tmnt2::tmnt1::tmnt3::tmnt4: a whole different audience would have shown up and they would have loved it.

You watched the new ones first. People who watched the old ones first and then waited 10-20 years for the new ones... they were certain there wouldn't be any new ones, and then they got their hopes up when they found out there would be... they expected the new ones to be just like the old ones, and they weren't... because... the old Star Wars movies became such a phenomenon because they were different from all the other successful sci-fi movies of the time... but the NT wasn't different enough from other movies, and wasn't mind-blowing enough to make up for it. It seems that people liked whichever trilogy they saw first. All the people who saw NT first loved it if that was their kind of movie, but the people who saw the old ones first weren't looking for another blockbuster movie. In fact, the people who saw the NT first probably had few expectations at first, and were curious to find out what a SW movie was like, and when you approach a movie with curiosity rather than expectations, it's harder to hate it.

Most of the people who like the new ones aren't old enough to know what it's like to wait 20 years for a movie, and when you've waited that long and it lets you down, that's different from only waiting 2 to 5 years and getting let down. I can only wonder about the people who saw the original SW in theaters... that was like, when? 1972? You'd have to be 50 years old now to remember that day! I got a long way to go to get to 50! :phew: :XD: So they're old-timers who waited 40 years for the cycle to complete! :XD: If you wait that long and then it doesn't end on a high note you're mad. :explosion: Plus... you know how older people are with old things. "Things today" can't measure up to the classics. But they thought Star Wars would be an exception.

Oh, and I didn't find Beru's house myself! :+devwatch:I found it because I read the description! :XD:

Well, what you say is true indeed. There are a lot of other movie series that started out as something and turned out to be something else, that went in different directions with the characters and the plot, and that something else was super LOVED by everyone and only in part liked by me or older fans of that series, being used to the old ones, so in a way I think this applies.
However for how I see it, that goes down into a "personal sphere" sort of thing as well. Someone's having high expectations or just an opinion on how the story should be or go, movie doesn't meet them for that person or for a group of people, you start to unlike it. Which is perfectly normal! Just as it's perfectly normal that that same movie hits a particular thing in the brain of a random other person who ends up loving it (that of course doesn't go for Star Wars only but for everything in general). And as it's perfectly normal that someone without expectations ends up loving the new thing first.

Thing is, when new SW fans saw the NT first, we saw something different from other movies. Lightsabers, podracers, Jedi... that was something we weren't really used to, even though it was meant to be just "another" blockbuster. I mean, you say that the NT wasn't as mind blowing as the OT, which may be true in someway, but to us, whoa it was. So in a way we kind of experienced the same thing that people experienced when watching the OT for the first time. Personally, I was like seven and I had already seen some SW movies on tv, but when we went watching Episode I in cinema, with friends and everything, and we were there always playing pretend with the characters we saw in the cinema, well, that was different than just watching a movie on tv and when you're a kid those are the things that draw you into a series first, so I think older fans can't really blame us for liking the NT as well :) that was our chance to get into SW just as people had their chance to do it when it first came out and everyone was talking about it. And while I will be the first to point out the mistakes in these movie, that can't really change all of this, basically.

So I'm not saying they don't have any rights to be mad or that they can't dislike the NT, but they need to understand that it's not like they will change anything by pointlessly attacking and insulting not even giving a chance to the newer fans to say their opinion. SW has covered different generations, and just as they grew fond of what they saw, the new fans grow fond of what they saw :) even though that may "hurt" the older fans :XD: and I know that very well, since something similar has happened with me with other series :XD:
