The Birth of a Jedi Time Lapse

Jedi toy painting

Artist Robert Burden has created a wonderful work of art entitled "The Birth of a Jedi". It’s oil on canvas, and stands 10 feet x 7feet.

If you’re wondering how this fits in to a blog about toys you will understand towards the end of the video for the closeups

Of course if you’re wondering that, you probably haven’t visited my blog before (I go off-topic a lot).

The painting covers events in Return of the Jedi when Luke is rescued by Han and must be kept warm in the belly of the TaunTaun. Although I remember them being white, or gray.

Scroll down for a time-lapse of the 7 months it took to paint.

    I can’t figure out how this thing took so long to paint. It’s certainly stunning, the close ups of it are amazing and if he maintained that level of detail and quality across the whole piece than I can see that it could have been time consuming. But 7 months really seems very high.
    I also wonder how this thing is or is not licensed (from lucasfilm) and if it matters at all. I was unclear as to whether this was simply a fine art piece or commissioned or for exhibition , etc.
    I think it said somewhere that he used oil paints, which depending on the technique could REALLY slow you down.

    Cool picture though
