I’ve been thinking about the Obi-Wan series coming out next year (as I often do) and thought I’d post some fan art pertaining to Obi-Wan on Tatooine throughout the years of his vigil over Luke.
So this is your basic Obi-Wan-meditating-in-the-desert theme. I love the details in this one, like the strands of hair in the face, the folded hands, and the shredded cloak.
I love this one of Obi-Wan sharing tea with Qui Gon’s Force ghost. Not sure how the ghost is going to drink the tea, but it’s a nice gesture anyway. Just about convinced we’re going to see Qui Gon in the show (it just seems inevitable, lol).
This one of Obi-Wan still grieving and obsessing over what happened with Anakin is one of my favorites. I’m guessing the show will address how he’s coping with his, what we would call, PTSD. He still hasn’t changed his tunic, which still has burn-holes from embers on Mustafar.
I love this one of Old Ben in his light-filled house.
Here’s Old Ben meditating in the desert, levitating Anakin’s lightsaber, and sitting atop a pile of burning lava. Clearly those memories are burned into his consciousness.
I love Swanland’s style of movement and vitality in his works. Here it seems Old Ben’s avoiding detection, with a dead Tusken Raider at his feet. Just another day on Tatooine.
What do you think of these images? Do you have any Obi-Wan favorites? Let me know in the comments, and we’ll talk about it!
