There are few people more dedicated and forgiving than Star Wars fans. No matter how bad the movies get or how much money they waste, the fans always return to Degobah to continue to their training.

Meet Kevin Hill, an artist Rotherham, England, who in 2006 decided to build a scale model of Han Solo’s ship, the Millennium Falcon, from scratch. The process would take 10 years to complete, but get this, he decided to do this after the prequels had been released.

Hill made the model for a friend's sci-fi convention, thinking at the time that the last Star Wars movie would be Revenge of the Sith, and yet, he persevered. After all, no one knew that their were more movies coming at the time.

The model is 1:18 scale model, which is 6-feet long and 4-feet wide, and weighs 168 pounds. Started when he was 35, the model took a decade to finish, meaning a 35-year-old may have seen the three prequels and still went ahead with the project.

To his credit, he doesn’t even care that much about Star Wars, so the fact that the prequels are terrible probably didn’t even matter much to him.

“I'm not a massive Star War fan — I don't collect anything — but I just love Sci-fi movies,” he said.

According to The Daily Mail, “The surface detail mainly comprises model-kit parts, space toy parts and other random salvaged items. The larger structural details such as cockpit and radar dish are vacuum formed using MDF moulds and he has used LED lights for the cockpit and thruster lights. Such is the level of detail he has added scars to the paintwork to demonstrate weathering.”

The model is quite impressive, almost as impressive as his desire to complete in spite of the world’s reaction to the prequel trilogy. Hill’s Millennium Falcon is set to sell at auction for about $7,600 to a world ready to love Star Wars again.

Check out the model below. It’s even more impressive knowing that this man may have seen the prequels and still went through with this:

Texas artist Nick Derington has immortalized some very important moments from your youth.

The print series called “Boss Fight” shows Mario, Link and Samus as they prepare to do battle with Bowser, Ganon, and Mother Brain.

He sold out of the first editions of the prints back in January, and now he’s offering them again through a Kickstarter project.

A description of the project from his page:

This project consists of three illustrations that recreate the nervous excitement that meant reaching a game’s hard earned final moments. A testament to the hours spent building skills, solving puzzles and defeating all the minions that stood in your way towards the game’s final confrontation.

 

Derington has done work for DC Comics, Marvel and Mondo, and he was lead animator for “Scanner, Darkly.”

He reached his fundraising goal after only an hour, and is now also offering a bonus print called “Mario’s Regret” to anyone who has funded at any level if he reaches $18k.

From the YouTube description:

Moon Animate Make-Up is a crowdsourced group animation project to re-animate an episode of Sailor Moon shot-by-shot in each artist's personal style. From October 2013 to July 2014, over two hundred and fifty animators contributed at least one shot each to assemble a full length parody episode of Sailor Moon.

Kasami-Sensei created this awesome series of photos imagining classic Disney princesses and heroes in a zombified apocalypse. Check out some of our favorites here and more on Kasami-Sensei's Deviantart page!
