You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.


EDIT: Also, for those of you complaining about the blood because "lightsabers crust over the wounds instantly" or some other nonsense, please re-watch A New Hope's barfight scene with Obi Wan.

Okay the first thing I'm going to say is that the concept is pulled of in an alright way: it could be better but it's not a horrible idea for what it is. The text is witty. However the font is not the most visually appealing thing I've seen in my days.

The poses are somewhat awkward and the guy with the light saber's (Excuse me for not knowing his name.) arms could be further back in order to make it look like he just cut George Lucas' head of more recently, and I believe it would make the pose more pleasing to the eyes. I am also wondering why George is kneeling down, but that isn't that much of a problem at all. The blood is splattered in a very odd way also.

The anatomy of both of them is a tad off: from what I can see they are both around 3 heads tall, when an average person is around 6 heads tall. The gingers of the hands are also very chubby and the clenched ones' knuckles look rather odd.
The eye-line to the highest part of the head you can see in a person who's head is not tilted down is about 4 eyes up, and they both have it around 1 and a half- 2 eyes up.
The proportion of the body/legs looks alright for the being 3 heads tall, but you should keep the real human proportions in mind when even drawing cartoon styled things.

The colouring of the blood looks very static due to a lack of reflection at all. Please do remember blood is a liquid and should be coloured/shaded as such rather then in the form of shading that would be proper for pillows.
Can you also please choose a light source and stick with it for a drawing just as a rule of thumb: it hurts my eyes to look at shading when it has no exact light source.
The hair could also use some more natural shading keeping the fact that hair is made up of many different strands rather then just existing as one chunk: even when in hair gel the strands are apparent.

I usually don't critique titles: but isn't "I HATE GEORGE LUCAS" a little harsh? It's all fine to dislike someone's work: but have you actually met the guy? Hating leaves one in a vulnerable position in terms of emotion especially online.

Anyway I think I have said enough for one critique, I hope you keep what I said in mind.

Sounds meaningful, but does it mean anything in the end?

I wouldn't want to see GL die just because of few bad films. Villian? He gave the $4 billion dollars from Disney to charity and children's hospitals.

Even if the light saber-y science blood crust theory is correct...the blood definitely makes this picture so much cooler :D

i dont know why everyone hates the cgi concept? it has done some very good things for movies, for example: the move "Avatar" (dances with wolves in space XD)
was an epic cgi battle, the lord of the rings cgi was awesome too! general grievous was completely cgi! and he is a badass!!!

It's a lightsaber, so the wound should be cauterized. Other than than that I like the piece! Lucas is nothing more than a dumb hack that doesn't deserve respect, Especially for raping star wars!

I actually did like the prequels (besides the Phantom Menace), but I agree he should never have changed the originals.
