I really like the idea but I think that the artist couldve have made it quite a bit more mangled and damaged. What do you guys think?

Definately needs some work... neat idea, though.

I like alot of this accounts' stuff... but the artist appears to have copied alot of others artists' work... namely a few of those Jango Fett shots (Ripped from the 'Bounty Hunter' article in Playstation Magazine) and the Star Destroyer (the 'Port' design is ripped from IG88's wallpapers).

I agree, its a good idea, but could benefit from some more things, such as battle damage. It would be neat to see some seaweed/kelp over it or some other creatures swimming around...right now it looks more like a fish tank than an environment. I also think it would be cool to see some creature make a home out of the cockpit, like a hermit crab in a shell or an eel in corral. Its his painting though, so to each his own, and I still like it.

I'm just wondering about the "vintage" darth maul painting the seller has... :P

I remember seeing that picture before...on a CGI art site. Who referred me to that site...I think it was someone here from Romania? Anyway....loved it so much it was my desktop background for about a year and a half.
