I love the process-y background! I think it works with the portrait as well as the intuitive colors in the shadows. Very nice! Plus Grand Moff Tarkin is the man!

Wonderful coloring...I'm astonished, I didn't think he could look so...so...well, he's amazing, really! And his expression...so intense!
Tarkin is one of my favorite Star Wars villains. Amazing picture for an amazing character, you made my day with this :)

Most interesting star wars paintings I may have ever seen. Your wash/spatter style is a nice change to the typical movie poster.

Really awesome. By far one of my favorite renditions of an amazing character (and actor).

Grand Moff Tarkin's always been my fave because of his style and how he is only 1/3 people who can put Vader in his place (the other 2 being Boba Fett and the Emperor)

Alright, SOMEONE who made artwork of a SW character that isn't a Skywalker, Solo, Jedi, or Sith. Kudos. Red is a good color for tarkin
