Atlanta-born artist Christian Waggoner has been creating a series of Star Wars fine art paintings for ACME Archives Direct, featuring detailed close-ups of some of the famous helmets of George Lucas’ galaxy. The idea of the series is to explore light and reflection, capturing unforgettable moments from the classic trilogy from an entirely new perspective. His newest painting, and third in the series, features a Stormtrooper with Rebel soldiers of the Tantive IV reflected in the eyes. Check out the other two pieces after the jump.
The first painting in the collection shows Darth Vader in close-up from A New Hope, with Obi-Wan seen dueling with the dark lord’s mask.
The second painting from Empire Strikes Back featured a close-up on Boba Fett, with Han Solo in carbonite reflected in his visor.
All of Waggoner’s paintings are available in limited edition paper, and canvas prints on the Acme Archives website.
