I’ve never had any desire to draw Star Trek characters. That’s not to say that I don’t like Trek – in fact I’ve been a huge fan for years and think William Shatner is a total legend. But for me the aesthetic of the Star Wars films in much more rich and interesting.

This piece shows a young Han Solo sweeping up Lieutenant Uhura after gunning down a Klingon. I’ve never drawn Uhura before – but I’m pretty pleased with the likeness. Harrison Ford has a more distinctive face with strong features – which makes it a little easier to get an approximate likeness.

I didn’t want to give any appearance of favoring Trek over Wars (or vice versa) – so I’ve also drawn a companion piece featuring Captain Kirk and Princess Leia (in her slave outfit) re-using elements of this image to give a kind of ‘alternate universe’ feel to the two pictures.



And I've added a third and final Star Wars / Star Trek piece to finish off this trilogy:

As per the request of quite a few people, this pic came into being! It started at as this sketch: from my 366 challenge, but it grew into something so much more! (Plus I've worked my new colouring method into this pic and I'm MUCH happier now!)

Firstly, I changed the trooper from Rex to Commander Cody, who is still one of the most butt-kicking clones in the Star Wars universe (after 32 from Republic Commando, of course!) and I also wanted to draw the adapted Clone Trooper armour design that started to look more like the Storm Trooper Armour from the original SW trilogy. This also made me realise that I really, REALLY like drawing clone troopers! This is the third pic I've done that they've featured in! :)

As I mentioned in the sketch, I really like young Obi Wan, so I drew the original as an homage. This time round I actually reference Ewan McGregor and got the much more awesome nose out of it. I still changed his hairstyle, because that middle-parting is so 90's... ;)

Oooh, and I really liked how Yoda turned out! ;)

I wanted to draw another Star Wars character - and thought that a Sandtrooper would give me the opportunity to play with some intense desert sunlight.

If you've seen Star Wars - you'll recognize that my inspiration for this piece is the "look sir... droids" scene.

I've drawn it from an angle not seen in the film - and like to think that this was just before the cameras started rolling.

Hope you like!

Most of my portfolio of Star Wars art features the popular characters like Darth Vader, Boba Fett and Stormtroopers, but I wanted to show that I can also draw the less well-known alien characters. And I thought where better to start than with one of Jabba the Hutt's Gamorrean Guards, aka 'Pig Guards'!

When Return of the Jedi came out in 1983, Dungeons and Dragons was very popular and I think they tapped into that 'swords and sorcery' look with these characters. In the movie, the Gamorrean Guards are brought to life by actors wearing 'fat suits' which must have limited their maneuverability - so I've tried to make my depiction look a little more dynamic and menacing.

Boba Fett was always one of my favorite Star Wars characters (despite me killing him in my 'Predator kills the Star Wars universe' picture). So it always really bugged me that he got taken out in Return of the Jedi in such a slapstick way.

Evidently I wasn't alone in my dissatisfaction with the idea that a temporarily blind Han Solo could do away with the galaxy's greatest bounty hunter without even realizing it - because almost immediately the 'expanded universe' of stories revealed that Boba did in fact escape the Sarlacc. I'm certainly not the first to try to depict the scene of how Boba might have emerged from the Sarlacc's pit - but I did want to make my version different from the others that you might have already seen.

I'm no expert on how the Sarlacc's digestive system works - but we heard something in the movie about it taking a thousand years to digest its victims. So perhaps it has some kind of way of putting its 'food' into suspended animation so it can eat it slowly whenever it needs to?

My idea for this scene is that it's now thirty years after being knocked into the Sarlacc and Fett has only just emerged. The Sarlacc's stomach acid has been wearing away at him all this time - leading to the added corrosion and cracks I've drawn - until the acid created a short circuit in Fett's jet pack which ignited the rocket on his pack and killed the Sarlacc - allowing Fett to wake from his stasis and slowly, wearily crawl up out of the burning pit!

...this means that he's emerging just in time to appear in Star Wars Episode 7 - looking to take revenge on Han Solo!!!
(It's a stretch I know - but so is the idea that a person can be digested for a thousand years! :lol:)

Samuel L Jackson has been great in pretty much every movie I've seen him in. He also happens to play key characters in both the Star Wars and Marvel movie universes - so here's a quick concept idea for a mash-up between his 'Nick Fury' from Marvel's Avengers and 'Mace Windu' from Star Wars. I call him... Mace Fury!!!

(I'm not sure if Mace Fury sounds cool, or if it sounds more like some kind of personal attack protection product!?)

I haven't drawn Mr Jackson before - so I'm pleased with how his likeness came out. I've adapted elements from both characters for the costume and tried to combine them into a believable look. I'm not sure why anyone with Jedi powers and a lightsaber might need a pistol - but I thought I'd add one - just in case 'Mace Fury' also likes to take out his enemies at long range too.

I can't think up any far-fetched idea for how, or why, such a character might ever exist - but I guess we've had weirder 'what if' stories exploring all kinds of strange parallel universes...like Superman vs Muhammad Ali, and Star Trek and the X-Men!

And now that Disney owns both Marvel and Star Wars - who knows whether they've even considered some kind of cross-over themselves? It can only be a matter of time... :)

A while ago I posted three illustrations merging Star Wars and Marvel characters and now that it's been confirmed that Star Wars comics will once again be created by Marvel, I thought the time was right to create a second 'trilogy' of mash-up concepts. 

For this one, I've mixed Marvel's Amazing Spider-Man with a Battle Droid from the Star Wars prequel trilogy. 

This is a low-res version of the original which was drawn by me in Photoshop using a Wacom pad. 

Star Wars was created by George Lucas; Spider-Man was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Star Wars and Marvel, and the respective characters are copyright of Disney. This is fan art and isn't available for sale or reproduction.

This piece shows a young Captain Kirk sweeping up Princess Leia after gunning down a Stormtrooper. I found it extremely challenging to draw Kirk. Although his face is very familiar – he doesn’t have any especially distinguishing features – so I spent more time trying to get his face right than I did drawing everything else in this picture.

I didn’t want to give any appearance of favoring Trek over Wars (or vice versa) – so I’ve also drawn a companion piece featuring Han Solo and Uhura re-using elements of this image to give a kind of ‘alternate universe’ feel to the two pictures.
