Star Wars - Winning The Boonta Eve by Renny08 Star Wars - Winning The Boonta Eve by Renny08
...sketch in on my Tumblr! 8D [link]

Haha yes!!

Today is Star Wars Day!! May the 4th be with you!! :D

I was going to make an Original Trilogy fanart, but instead I'm being super brave in posting an Episode I drawing...with the risk of a massive bunch of haters coming to get me. °_°

But I don't care! :iconimhappyplz:
This scene somehow came into my head while I was looking at awesome Disney art and suddenly wanted to draw kids.
So I started drawing little Ani...then I remembered how Qui-Gon lifts him up after he wins the Boonta Eve, and I was like "OMG gotta draw that! 8D"

And you know the funny thing? I was all happy because you can't see the scene very well in the movie and therefore it was cool to make a drawing out of it.

And just when I am finished and I'm ready for coloring, I find this photo: [link]
Just...LOL. x'D

But I'm happy because I kinda get the way Qui-Gon is holding Anakin right, considering that I had no references at all.
And I'm also kinda happy of how Shmi came out 8>

Too bad I settled for Qui-Gon's usual poker face instead of a genuine smile like he has in the photo... mine is more of a "I knew you would win" expression xD

Anyway truth is, I had this drawing in the making for a little less than a week. And somehow I needed to get it out of my system because it was a fun concept and didn't want to get bored with it and drop it like I usually do with drawings that stay unfinished for too long.
And I love drawing kids!! So I just gave precedence to this one instead of doing a whole new OT fanart, which is probably coming soon anyway.

Okay, enough with the ranting now!
I hope you enjoy!! :D

As always I'm sorry for being late with replies D8 I finished one job, and it comes another one which needs to be done by the end of May =___= aaah, give me some rest...

"The Phantom Menace" is a great movie, and aside from it's haters, it has it's lovers as well :) Plus, Darth Maul & Jar Jar Binks are great Star Wars characters =D

This is a fantastic piece of art for a wonderful scene!

It's a great one! And yeah, great you managed to catch the poses without references, it's always a hell *_* And a situation when you find something very similar when you're done or almost done... oh it's so common XD Happened to me many times.

May the 4th be with you! (Again! :))))

Ahaha! QuiGon!
I'll tell you I've actually met people who weren't fans of the new trilogy who LOVED QuiGon because he was ObiWan's teacher and my parents thought it was actually kinda cool to see ObiWan as a student.

Sometimes, I wish that Gui-Gon had survived, and then it somehow turned out that Anakin was the biological son of Qui-Gon and Tahl (a character from the Expanded Universe who really did have feelings for Qui-Gon).

Qui-Gon woul've made an epic father for Anakin, and had he lived, I fully believe that he would've kept Anakin from turning to the dark side.

I'm awfully late (now that may 5th is long ago) but I still needed to tell you that this is an amazing artwork. You captured the essence of the scene so well, especially Ani's joy.

And while Episode I is my least favorite of the movies (ie I like the others even more) I really don't get all the hatred for the prequels.

Ah little Ani, before he became an arrogant, emo Jedi who screws the Order, Republic, and the whole Galaxy.
