When the 'skin flap' of Luke's artificial arm is closed by the Medical Droid, it doesn't line up with the little portion of 'fake arm' underneath the metal 'clamp' that we can see nearest the robe sleeve. Could this be amended?
And please consider this one too Ady - Could the whole metal 'clamp' section nearest the robe sleeve be actually removed, and replaced with a LONGER robe sleeve nearly up to where the 'flap area' closes over? This would make it seem that not so much of his arm has been lopped off when compared to where it was actually cut off earlier in the movie, and gets rid of the 'faker-looking' veins on the dummy arm nearest the robe sleeve too....
The immediate following shot afterwards shows the left arm of Luke's robe clearly, to match where the 'seam' on the new robe 'cuff' would be.
I'd forgotten how horrible this is....so in addition to the comments above that I previously made on page 42 (!), there's a couple more I'd like to suggest now that it's been mentioned again -
There are actually two different shots of this 'fake' arm, seperated by a shot of Luke's face. They are both static shots, but shown at a very slightly different angle to each other. One shows the thumb, finger and palm being prodded by the Medical Droid, and the other is seen in the screenshot recently posted, where Luke wiggles his fingers about. A real hand obviously sticks out the end of a none too convincing 'prosthetic arm' which seems to be a slightly different colour compared with the more pinkish real hand. The thing is, since the WHOLE hand and 'opened up arm' that we see is ALL meant to be 'artificial'....then it's reasonable to assume that it should all be a uniform colour. The 'veins' that are on the fake arm make the difference in colouring from the real hand more obvious, especially when the ones on the fake 'wrist' nearest the real hand show no movement whatsoever, considering the amount of movements that we see the 'supposedly artificial' hand itself make. However, that is not the main problem that spoilt these shots for me.
One of the MAIN things that looks bad to me personally are definately the 'veins' seen nearest Luke's robe sleeve. Especially in the FIRST shot of the 'arm' that we see. Ideally, I'd like to see them removed, EITHER by making that small section of the 'arm' a uniform 'flesh' colour OR by extending the robe sleeve to cover them up. My previous suggestion was to perhaps replace the metal 'clamp' with an extended robe sleeve, which would tie in a little better with the fact Luke's hand was only cut off at the WRIST....but even if the robe sleeve was only extended CLOSER to the metal 'clamp', things would look better.
The two other main things that look bad to me, are the fact the 'skin flap' doesn't ALIGN properly with the 'arm' section underneath the metal 'clamp' nearest the robe sleeve when closed, and that the robe sleeve itself doesn't seem to match (in it's 'creases') between the two shots either....
It's these three things that are the worst aspects of the whole fake 'arm' appliance I reckon. I personally like the actual 'inside workings' fine as they are though!
doubleofive - perhaps you could stick a comparison of the FIRST 'arm' shot (at any point) along with the SECOND one at a point that shows the 'skin flap' fully flipped back into place for me sometime? Thanks.
