I'm glad someone out there gave Wedge some respect.

He is, after all, the ONLY non-main character to survive all 3 movies!

Beautiful work.
And so nice to see Wedge featured in artwork like this, he tends to get overlooked a lot.

What complement can I offer that hasn't already been given? Guess I'll settle for the most generic and straightforward: Good job, I really like it. An awesome portrayal of one of the best characters from the Original Trilogy. Keep it up.

I love wedge because he is the only pilot that can survive the epic battles without the forces direct help. I am, glad that they have the video games to give him a bit more credit. he is so underrated. You did a fantastic job on this! It looks like official art of the movie.

Is he related to the guy who got killed in the opening scene from New Hope?

Cause I remember C-3PO mentioning
that R2's and his former owner was captain Antilles.

Is it like "Reed" or
"Johnson?"

Is it a really common last name?

You captured his face so well, and his eyes are just beautiful. Wedge has always been one of my favorite characters, and seeing such a wonderful rendition of him brought a smile to my face <3

ZOMG. I love you. Have my babies.

Seriously. I love Wedge and he's the coolest character that Lucas ignored. (Frankly, I'm not a fan of the EU as it is, so I don't read the books that much anymore) so I really don't see Wedge as often as I would like. But brilliant people like you bring him to life. Beautiful! Bravo, bravo!
