    Thanks. I'm glad you like them because right now I'm in the process of making a few more based on actual scenes from the films (including ROTS).

    The final poster didn't turn out all that bad. Like I said earlier, an interesting take on things with the horizontal design. The only thing that bugs me about it, though, is that all the characters seem to be all the same size. Perhaps varying the sizes of certain characters(make some larger and smaller) will help build up a stronger composition. :)

    Awesome! :D I can't wait to see them!


    And you must be so proud that you made it into the museum. Congratulations! :)

    Here is my newest pic (with one of the best scenes from the newest trailer :D ).

    And here is the Battle of Hoth LEGO pic that I also submitted to the March Art Challenge:

    Sorry about the size of the first pic. Thanks to Thrawnrocks for helping me find the right font.

    I found out a new technique on my photo program and so here's a collage I made. Sorry again for how big it is:

    I don't know why I like using that picture of Vader so much! Sorry if there's anything that I left out.

    Whoa, that is awesome. That's a new twist on those photo collage posters you see of Yoda and Darth Vader. Care to share the methods behind it or would you rather keep it a secret? :p

    Excellent work, DarthMaul! :D

    Well actually I discovered it by accident. What I did was that I took the picture of Vader and then used the magic wand tool (yes, just like Photoshop) and selected the primary "chunks of his helmet in order to get the distinct look. Then, while still selected I inverted the selection. I then clicked COPY > FILE > NEW > PASTE. Then I included the other various images as layers underneath the Vader layer. It gets a little tricky though trying to find the right picture to put in the right places.

    Awesome Vader collage, DM431!! I love that effect, and that it includes almost every element that led up to the end of him is a perfect touch! Very imaginative and original--well done! =D=

    I recently saw a cool spoiler of Anakin in the lava, and so it led to me making this image.

    I loved the two TV Ads posted on the official site so I'm going to make something with those soon!

    Ooo...very eerie looking Anakin. It fits nice for a little teaser for the film. I also like the Clone Wars text you used for it. Nice... :D

    Oooo, nice stuff. I love that Clone Wars collage! You should make that into a banner and submit it as a replacement, maybe in the EUC or something. Nice work!

    I really like the type of collages you do. I always find myself having a difficult time arranging pictures in a proper way, but you seem to have an eye for things that flow, and the more you post the better they seem to get.

    Very nice work in your latest pieces, DM431--I really like the composition of "The Duel" and in "The Death of Anakin Skywalker" (great title, btw, since this is where he actually does "die" to those that loved him...). Good images, good arrangements. I also like the clone trooper collage--a great variety of images and scenes--nicely done!

    Whoa, the image of Vader rising out of the flames is absolutely breathtaking. The ROTS poster is excellent (though it's a bit lacking in the Dooku department, call me strange but I think Dooku is an interesting character).

    The Legacy of Anakin Skywalker was also good, I feel it minored Anakin's journey into the clutches of the dark side. The Reflection on Vader's helmet gives off a great many Star Wars moments.

    All some of the most excellent pieces of fan art I've ever seen DarthMaul, well done

    Thanks for the comments!

    In the wait for the Episode III DVD to be released in November, I made my own versions of the DVD Menus. I tried to be as accurate as I could with the other DVDs but some parts were a little complicated.

    Here are the Mustafar Menus. Tomorrow I will add Coruscant and then Utapau on Friday.

    verry nice, too bad half of that isnt yours! I have searched that stuff on google like 3 months ago and further back! Some of them are amazing, then other ones have bad cutting jobs! Somthing is out of place here solo29, you must sense it as I have. One of those was made by my couzin! He might have taken someone elses work and added a picture on it, but thats not realy "him" makin it. no offense but u gotta be careful in wat u post.
