28/52 | The Best of the Falcons on Flickr.
52 Weeks of Star Wars is a weekly photo project starring various characters from the Star Wars franchise. This photo project is a continuation of sorts to my original series; 365 Days of Clones, specially my Cloned Photos mini-series.
Today marks the Twentieth Eighth creation in this year long adventure. As the title suggests; 52 Weeks of Star Wars, one new photo will be taken, edited and added to the running total every Sunday. The twist is that all the images will be a recreation of sorts of a previous image. Some; like today, will be album covers, some will be film posters and others will be famous or well known images of the 20th century. There may even be the odd recreation of a painting!
“The Best of the Falcons” is my recreation of the 1985 album cover; "The Best of the Doors".
Some of you may be wondering why I chose to create a Cloned Photo base upon this iconic image. Jim Morrison is very much a bad ass…so is Han Solo…enough said.
This is another one of those images I’ve been meaning to get to for a while; but like last weeks shot, there was always something that was just not right. I always liked Han’s head on Luke’s Tatooine body, but his hair wasn’t right for the photo. Thanks to the wonderful world of Photoshop, however, I was able to recreate the shot with Anakin’s head and use some of his hair. It turned out well…I think. My only regret is his arms are too blown out…but it’s 11:45 and this needs to be up in the next 15 minutes.
