I won't know if my piece really captures the spirit of the movie until "The Force Awakens" comes out in December, but I did a lot of research on the new characters to make my piece as authentic as possible. From the costumes to the hairstyles to the spaceships, I tried to get the details right. I did a matte painting-esque mountain range in the background that I hope harkens back to the original movies. And I even threw in a lens flare for J.J. Abrams (and because it looks cool).
