A New Republic Fleet leaving the ice planet Hoth. Once called the Rebellion they survived a major battle on this world. In old times they did not stand a chance against the Galactic Empire, the New Republic were named after the death of Emperor Palpatine and the Imperials and now are guardians of the galaxy who fight for peace liberty and freedom.
The Empire is hunting out Rebels in the sector, interference from the asteroid field and rings surrounding the planet are disrupting the Stardestroyers readings. Two Tydirium shuttles equiped with with advanced sensors are dispatched along with tie fighter escorts.
The Old Republic is no more and the Imperial order rules the galaxy under control of Emperor Palpatine. Wave upon wave of ships enter space combat for the first time in an attempt to end the Rebellion against the newly formed Galactic Empire.
I saw this painting during my usual lunchtime google images search looking for inspiration, and just had to draw it straight away. The original had a fantastic fight scene reflection in the lenses of the Stormtrooper, I decided to fill them with a vision of Darth!
I thought a couple of hours, how wrong i was!! I reckon at least 5 hours straight through without stopping.
Another cult movie, with great characters and legendary performances (I am talking about Yoda ) One of my favourites - hope you like this drawing also?
