He ain't heavy, he's my Yoda. (back-print)

Close-up details:







See a big version HERE!

The logo is a parody of the outdoor brand Camelbak, not to be confused with Yoda's swamp home planet. The merit badges are for balancing on one hand, force somersaulting, stacking rocks, swinging on swamp vines, and going into the Darkside Tree cave.

Thanks for looking! Please vote if you like this design.

One? I can think of three people, including myself, who desperately need this.

Fantastic job, Spirit! And thank you for using a light colored shirt. The last thing I want to wear outside when it's 100 degrees is yet another black/slate/navy shirt.

And that's what 1000 bucks looks like.

You may not have been the only person to think of this, but you might be one of the few who could do it so well. 'No more training do you require. Already know you that which you need.'

Re: In Training


@citizencoyote, thanks - I like light shirts myself! Also this is the closest color to what Luke was wearing.

@tonycenteno, cheers! I bet your version would've been killer. The theme was announced in the double-take derby's thread last week, so I've spent longer than usual drawing this.

@taternuggets, aw man, sorry you did that. You should have left it up, you can never tell what style people will like the most.

@PixelPants, as always you are too kind. :^)

@lyonscc, Radscoolian, cablebfg, flattopfrank, gezza - many thanks!

You did a great job with this Spirit, I just wish the colors were slightly more saturated but you achieved great textures still.

Re: In Training


@tjost, it's funny, I think maybe it's the merchandising and cartoons that makes us think of very strong colors. If you look back at the training scenes in Empire the colors are quite muted. The backpack is blue-gray. Yoda is a faded green, which I actually amped up a little.

I tried to be a stickler to the source material. :^)

Thanks everyone for the comments and votes on this design!

I'd be in for at least 2!
What sucks is it doesn't follow the Derby rules. They need to make an exception here.

Why do you say that?

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.
