Victorian Star Wars Characters Ok, so I’m on a bit of an artist kick so far this week. Greg Peltz has done an amazing job of re-imagining some of our favorite Star Wars characters (from the only trilogy that matters) as if they were in the Victorian era.

Great Photo Realistic Paintings That Reflect by Jason De Graaf Jason de Graaf (Artist)Photo Realistic Paintings Artist Statement My paintings are about staging an alternate reality, the illusion of verisimilitude on the painted surface, filtered so that it expresses my unique vision. Though my paintings may appear photoreal my goal is not to reproduce or document faithfully what I see one hundred percent, but also to create the illusion of depth and sense of presence not found in photographs. Many of my paintings are about the relationship of light with reflective and transparent surfaces and my journey to understand those qualities and convey my sense of wonder and intrigue over them.
