This is my first ever full digital painting. Whew, what a learning experience this was.
I have always wondered how the Ewoks felt about the many casualties visited on their small moon by The Empire. So many dead--entire families, erased by evil.
What if, then, there were Force-sensitive Ewoks somewhere on the planet?
What if, in his grief and anger, one of those Force-sensitive Ewoks began to find the power of hate through the Force?
What if, in the back of his mind, a voice called to him, promising that he could have the power he desired--to strike back at those who had destroyed his life--his mate, his children, his village?
Traveling to a dark abandoned temple in a forbidden shadowy glade, he finds a Sith Holocron--the final epitaph of a long-lost Dark Lord--the voice that has called him here.
This is the story if Krikksaa, Ewok Dark Side Force User.
And he will use his hatred and power to cut down as many of The Empire's lackeys as he can...or die trying.
SHADOWS OF ENDOR.
*No, there's no such book, movie or comic book. I just like the idea, so I decided to make it my first digital painting. I even made the logo. Super fun.
Randomly influenced by Ralph McQuarrie's cover for the novel Splinter of the Mind's Eye as well as the Great Owl from the animated film "The Secret of Nimh".
