Comic #412

1 {scene: Obi-Wan's hut on Tatooine}
1 Leia [projected as a hologram]: This is our most desperate hour. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope.
2 Obi-Wan: {to Luke} You must learn the ways of the Force if you're to come with me to Alderaan.
3 Luke: I must learn the ways of the Force if I'm to go with you to Alderaan.
4 Obi-Wan: Oh man, what sort of weak-minded fool are you? I wasn't even using the Jedi Mind Trick.

This is similar to the hologram effect I used in #380, except this time I tinted the hologram blue and added the projection cone from R2's eyeball-socket-thingy.

I could have put horizontal lines across the projection to make it look like scan-lines, but I figured the technology is high enough in the Star Wars setting that they aren't still using NTSC.

2013-02-21 Rerun commentary: Apparently not!

Looking at this strip again now, I could have used a better background than the generic grey studded walls. Obi-Wan's hut has much more character than that. It's a little difficult to figure out where they are supposed to be, until you read the dialogue and remember what scene that was in the film.
