kiyan's name alive. this picture of star wars character han solo is by the artist chris scalf, renowned for the photorealism of his work. the foundation commissioned chris to create an image of kiyan as he would look today. there's a certain point where halfway through, when i start to feel like i'm getting it, and feeling confident, but not confident enough, until i get the final acknowledgement from the people who it really matters too. to say that it looks like kiyan. working with the special effects team behind avengers endgame, chris created this 3d model of kiyan. and this is the moment mark prince saw the picture of his son at 30 for the first time. he looks absolutely fantastic.
