GALLERY: Artists Re-Imagine ‘Star Wars’ in the Most Amazing Ways

This stopped me dead in my tracks. A post on Facebook showed just a glimpse of something I thought, at first, was a unreleased image of Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker from a time long ago… or in a galaxy far– you get it.

But it wasn’t an unreleased image – or a leaked image from a new Star Wars movie. Or anything other than pure fun and awesome set inside everyone’s favorite universe. You see, it was for a contest from CG+, who simply put it out to their fans this way:

The challenge is to re-imagine your favorite character, creature or vehicle from the Star Wars universe. We want you to be creative about it, you can cross universes or redesign within an existing universe as long as it’s a fresh and interesting take on the subject. Cyberpunk Boba Fett? Padme Amidala in a new beautiful dress? Gundam Darth Vader? World War II Millennium Falcon? Medieval stormtrooper? Battle wookies, nexu, bounty hunters, droids and other supporting characters, creatures and vehicles are acceptable. We want to see your unlimited power of imagination!

Seems simple enough, right? Sure, for me I’d end up drawing three stick fingers on a napkin, holding lightsabers. These guys from the CG+ contest? AMAZING.

Seriously, I haven’t seen so much beauty in a long time…. Fun Star Wars characters, interesting new takes. It’s all there in that description. And since I’ve already explained too much, here’s a collection of some of the best, below. A for a big collection, thanks to One Perfect Shot for some great pulls. You can either jump over to One Perfect Shot, or comb the original site where the contest lives, hitting up each artist for a copy.

Let the amazing begin!
