Here's my drawing of the baddies from the prequel trilogy of the Star Wars movies.
For this picture I started off with the idea of drawing a sister piece to my 'Empire' drawing: ... but I had to be selective when choosing which characters to use as I wanted this to be representative of the Clones from both the second and third movies - but that means, I necessarily had to leave some cool characters out.
This is an entirely original picture. First drawn freehand with pencil on paper, then scanned and coloured (over many, many hours) in Photoshop using a Wacom tablet.
Don't be afraid - no actual Stormtroopers were harmed in the making of this picture!
I was contacted by - who asked whether I'd be interested in drawing a picture for his Left 4 Dead 2 Mod which he's calling ZombieTroopers. He said it would be based on the book Deadtroopers and feature Boba Fett, Aurra Sing, IG-88 and Bossk - all battling some Zombie Stormtroopers in a destroyed city that looks like Corusant.

I liked the idea very much (I like drawing Stormtroopers - even if they are all ickey and bitey) - so I took the brief and turned out what you see here!
I originally drew this in pencil, then scanned it and coloured it in Photoshop using a Wacom tablet. This is a web-optimised version of the image (it is a 100mb bitmap at 600dpi!)
Hope you like it... and please don't have nightmares!
The character of Boba Fett was first conceived as a kind of 'super' Stormtrooper - and initiallly had a white outfit. Even though the white armour never made it to the movie I thought that would be a cool look to draw.
What I've done here is mix elements of Jango Fett's Mandalorian outfit with a Clone Trooper armour in an attempt to come up with a plausible reason for the armour to be white.
For the purpose of this picture... Jango is testing out the standard clone armour - but insisted on wearing his own superior body suit and helmet to protect his vital organs. He knew that the clone armour was being mass-produced cheaply and he didn't want to get killed on account of a test! It's a stretch I know!
If you've got a better excuse for why he might be wearing a white outfit - let's hear it!
This is an entirely original depiction of George Lucas's characters. First drawn with pencil then scanned and coloured in Photoshop with a Wacom tablet.
I've always loved drawing Star Wars and have already posted some of my pictures: [link] [link] [link]
Star Wars has been around a long time now - so I really don't get anything from seeing images that copy stills from the movies or don't add any originality. So I always try to paint something that you haven't seen before - and with this one I've attempted to mix the epic 'movie poster' look with the feel of a super-hero team cover.
I really went all-out with this piece and it took a very long time to complete. I painted it at a very high resolution (it's a 330mb PSD file) but I dramatically reduced it here to make it quicker to load.
I like the design of the Shock Troopers from Revenge of the Sith... so I thought I'd draw some - and this is the result.
When I started this I also drew the Emperor in the background with his arms raised up to the sky shooting force lightning - as I'd imagined this scene taking place after they'd landed on Mustafar (the volcanic planet) - with him commanding the troops to "find Lord Vader". But... it kind of distracted from the Shock Troopers so I left him out. And I think the piece is better for it.
This is a low-res version of my drawing which I sketched on a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and finished on my desktop PC using Photoshop and a Wacom pad. It's an original depiction of George Lucas’s / Disney’s copyright characters – intended solely to show my artistic ability. I’m not a professional – this is fan art – and none of my work is for sale or available for reproduction.
I wanted to draw Darth Vader again - but I wanted to do something different. I thought that the juxtaposition of the Dark Lord of the Sith, ultimate movie bad guy - in a pretty, colourful woodland on some alien world would be something different!
I've called it 'The Nightmare' because, the way I imagine it - the last thing you would want to see if you were in such a peaceful place would be Darth Vader suddenly marching towards you. But I also thought that, for Darth Vader, being in such an idyllic place would also be torture... maybe even a nightmare?
This is an entirely original depiction of George Lucas's character. Drawn by me in Photoshop using a Wacom pad.
I put a lot of hard work and thought into this and I hope you like it - but please let me know before you use any of my drawings anywhere else. Thanks.
