Star Wars - Like Father, Like Son by Renny08 Star Wars - Like Father, Like Son by Renny08
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

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

I understand. I watched both trilogies - the CT first then the NT, but love both. I think I might even like the NT better. Though the only problem I did see with the NT is how cheesy some of the Anakin/Padme lines were. But Obi-Wan was just amazing! So spunky and sarcastic. He really made the movies for me!

:iconanakinplz: "You still have a long way to go, my son."

I agree with you, I also like the entire saga as a whole. I'm curious to see how episodes VII-IX will turn out. :D

As for the picture, I like how you've made Luke and Anakin resemble each other with subtle tweaking of their faces and hair.

I still don't see what everyone has against the prequels. I find them just as good as the originals. I understand if some people were really mad about Hayden replacing Sebastian at the end of ROTJ, but the 2004 edition was the first real attempt to tie the prequels to the originals.

I love all of the movies too. If only this was a part in Episode IV...
LuminaBalderson Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2014
I hear you. 
I like both trilogies as well.
I prefer the Original, but I genuinely like the Prequels as well. Heck, I was first introduced to Star Wars via "Attack of the Clones" airing on TV, and rented A New Hope shortly afterward.

Also, I freaking LOVE The Clone Wars. BEST. CARTOON. EVER.
Ahsoka's awesome, the Mortis Trilogy was awesome, and I'm liking the bits of foreshadowing they sprinkle in throughout the entire series, most notably in the later seasons; it gives the series a darker atmosphere, and I love it.

And I think that Rebels will be an awesome series, too.

I don't remember if I commented on this fanart before, but still, I say it: I love it. It symbolizes the generation transition of the Skywalkers, and I agree completely with you rant: I love both trilogies, I love the WHOLE saga. To me the NT and the OT complement each other perfectly and together created an epic tale. I understand that some people dislike the NT which is fine, until they start to treat you as "no real SW fan" because you love the prequels *facepalm*, I love both trilogies because I grew up with both. Also, this picture is a bonus because Anakin and Luke happen to be my two favorite characters of the whole saga: the fallen and later redeemed hero, and the young hero who succeeded in which his father failed while also bringing him back to the light. So, I love your work! :love:
