These Star Wars Watercolor Illustrations Are Artistic, Elegant, And Epic

This talented, traditional comic artist gives classic Star Wars characters the graphic novel treatment in a series of stunning watercolor illustrations.

This talented, traditional comic artist gives classic Star Wars characters the graphic novel treatment in a series of stunning watercolor illustrations.

We can thank artist Aaron Minier for these traditional greyscale/minimal-color renditions of our friends from a galaxy far, far away. These works are dramatic yet refined, and somehow give off a mature vibe that says "yes, I am an adult who enjoys contemplating a war about stars, from time to time. Perhaps I have a classy wall hanging on the subject. Would you care to discuss the finer points of droid sentience, or who may or may not have shot first?"

According to Minier's bio:

"I'm freelance illustrator/comic artist. I worked with Wildstorm/DC on the PUSH miniseries as well as Tales from the Fringe. My work can also be found in the pages of "Battle of Destiny", a graphic novel penned by Chuck Dixon, and Black Rose, my self published collaborative fantasy/steampunk comic book."

An impressive body of work. You can check out more of the artist's collection over at his DeviantART gallery. And now, scroll down for the Star Wars goodness!
