I AM the Senate


Author Comments

In another dimension, I got the role for Darth Sidious in the Star Wars saga. Unfortunately, in this dimension, Star Wars failed, and everybody hated it.

So technicaly, its a self portrait as if I was Darth Sidious...?

I dont know why i did this ok? It just happned. I do like the old star wars movies, of course, but i wouldn't call myself a big fan.


Pretty cool!

The hands feels like it give out pain. Maybe you could make him tilt a little, but everything else in the art looks awesome. Is he getting ready to arise from his chair? Why I'm wondering if he's getting ready to stand up straight.


Looking at it gives such a strange feeling in the depts of myself...incredible. Incredibly incredible. A apprehensive sensation fortified by each and every trace of this image. Specially the eyes got my attention. The orange iris and the reddish dark circles created a majestic effect in my opinion.

I'm no expert, but I sincerely think the hands could be improved. I can see some sort of line dividing the right hand and separating it from the fingers, which seem to be made of...wood maybe?. I dunno, it just doesn't look very good. But ironically, the shading on the left palm looks great =P.

Don't get me wrong, I just pointed these things in case you ever want to edit this someday. Once again, a magnificent art LaserKarl. I'm very grateful to you for sharing your creations with us, simple people of simple worlds. May your hands be forever this phenomenal tool, and your mind this superb masterpiece generator.

Awesome lol and...

I believe that perhaps you made this a self portrait not because you are that big of a Star Wars fan, but rather because you may see something in Darth Sidious that you either see in yourself or admire. Perhaps his relentless and never ending thirst for power is somehow appealing to you, or perhaps I'm looking into this too much lol I'm a big Star Wars fan after all lol.

Regardless its a sick picture lol I definitely like your style.

Thats a take on the subject. I have no idea why i like darth sidious so much, this might be some clue to why. Definatly worth taking into consideration.


Absolute Illness

I love this thing and couldn't bear to give it a less than perfect score. However, I do think you sold yourself short on Darth Haggner's right hand. The detailing in the face and the active hand is so stylish that it's disappointing to see a lack of scarring there.

Great image nonetheless.
