We’re getting closer and closer to the release of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” but we’re not quite there yet.

To tide you over until the film’s release December 18, we’ve rounded up some of the best fan art pieces from “Art Awakens,” a Star Wars art exhibit held earlier this November featuring pieces from professional and amateur artists.

The pieces are currently being auctioned off for charity on eBay and range in price from $US30 to over $US3,000. Turns out, people are willing to pay a pretty penny for creative artwork featuring Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, and many, many Stormtroopers.

Keep reading to see 21 of our favourites from the “Art Awakens” collection.

Some of the pieces are incredibly realistic. Check out the detail on this Yoda.
