The Emperor's Web by JakeMurray The Emperor's Web by JakeMurray
Another card for FFG's upcoming Star Wars living card game! A black throne against black space is really hard to design a composition around. Thankfully, we have Endor!

I can't believe I never noticed the web symbolism before. That's cool!

It's perfect symbolism, though. Glad to have finally noticed it!

Love it, but I've always been a big fan of the Palpatine's Throne and throne room. What can I say, the man had taste...

Nice!

And well-thought, too. The classic photo with starry black background is too well known, and the stark severity of its window struts would be hard to convey on a card-sized painting, while your different version here makes it both new AND recognizable. Brilliantly done.

I love art!

Thank you! Those were my thoughts exactly when I was working on it, so I'm glad it comes across that way. :)

You can almost hear that sinister male choir in the background....

I like to imagine that Palpatine would be the choir director. Maybe he was leading a rehearsal somewhere else on the death star when this image takes place? :)

Thanks! It's mostly cool tones and black, but I did warm up the chair a little bit with some slight reds to get it to pop a little bit more against the background. ;)
