Luke Skywalker plays with his toy X-Wing as a child in art pieced named "Little Luke's Destiny"!

Everyone has big dreams of what they want to become when they are older and Luke Skywalker is no exception. Take a look at this adorable piece of Star Wars fan art that features Luke as a little boy playing with a toy X-Wing star fighter on the sand dunes of his home planet, Tattoine. The artist, Nick Scurfield, has named this cute piece "Little Luke's Destiny".

Despite being completed before Disney took over the Galaxy, the style isn't out of place with their mantra, representing the childish outlook of the subject whilst drawing on and exaggerating the colour palette of the films worlds. I also liked the idea of Luke playing with his toy Star fighter just like many of us did in our youth."
The piece is absolutely adorable and beautiful drawn. I cannot wait to see what ch…
