Caricature theme - Star Wars

Client's brief:-
"My wedding is coming up on May !st 2009. I would like to have a caricature in colour with theme done by you. We do not have a wedding photograph as we wanted a caricature. This will be our main portrait at the entrance to our wedding dinner.

I was thinking of having myself in Anakin Skywalker's Jedi outfit from Star Wars with the lightsaber pointing down and my wife, in Padme Amidala's white outfit with the blaster. I have attached a picture of Anakin Skywalker with the pose that I want to be in and 1 picture of Padme Amidala with the pose and outfit that i want her to be in. I would like us to be holding hands too. I realize that i do not have an updated photo of myself as my hair in the picture that i sent u is shorter than what i have now. Is it possible that i have the same hairstyle as Anakin in the picture? My hair is a little bit shorter than that.

I'm not sure about the background. I was toying with the idea of us standing on a beach with the sun rising behind us and the date 1 May 2009 written on the waves and another idea of us in space with R2D2 and C3P0 or X wings and TIE Fighters (Star Wars battle sapceships ) somewhere in the picture. If u have any idea that might look better for the background, I will appreciate it."

Couple caricatures Star Wars Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala
While I was drawing this caricature, I was crossing my fingers, as in whether to have a black colour background for the universe/space.
On second thought, it could appear too dim and dull, especially when the guy is in black.
I chose to use the usual dark blue colour eventually.
Maybe next time when we have a different colour if clothing for subjects, I will give it a try.

Client's immediate response:-
"Oh, that is awesome! That is really very nice!"

I am happy too.:D

Email from the client:-
"Hi Jit,

I hope that this is not too late but I would like to commend on the caricature that you did for my wife and I. We absolutely LOVE it! It is very well done and a lot of people at our wedding kept asking us about it.

Thank you so much.
Zachary and Shoba"
