Most of my artwork I post here is done in 'portrait' style because I'd really like to draw a Star Wars comic cover one day! But I thought I should try to demonstrate that I can also create 'landscape' scenes too - so I've put together a series of three pictures depicting scenes that 'sort of' happened in the original Star Wars trilogy.
There was a scene filmed, but not completed, for Return of the Jedi (apparently as a joke) - showing the Imperial Guard using their force pikes to execute Moff Jerjerrod for slacking with his job of building the second Death Star. I thought that scene, if it had been used, could have actually been important in demonstrating Darth Vader's wavering devotion to his Emperor. The way I imagine it - the Emperor orders his guards to execute the hapless Moff - but Vader actually protests - and tries to remind the Emperor that this was a loyal soldier who delivered a functional Death Star. I think this would be consistent with Vader's old appreciation, as Anakin, for his troops - and would start to sow the seeds for his eventual redemption at the end of the movie!
This is an original depiction of characters created by George Lucas. It was drawn in Photoshop using a Wacom pad. Disney owns the copyright to Star Wars and its characters and this image is fan art that isn't for sale or reproduction.
Old, mature, master, this is what I would like to see in J.J. Abrams take on the film, a more mature Luke Skywalker, with bits of ancient armor, with a peaceful and wise look, patient, and of course, the rise of the sith, we need more old school sith empire, like in the old republic times, leave a comment, let me know if you like the piece and what do you think of J.J. Abrams taking part as a director for our beloved Star Wars!, may the force be with you!!!
I had an idea that Jabba's Rancor would sometimes go for an evening stroll around Tatooine - and on this occasion he found an AT-AT to play with. (Perhaps the AT-AT was there as part of the deployment sent to look for the two droids at the start of 'A New Hope'?)
When I originally envisaged this piece I thought I would draw it from a low angle - looking up at the Rancor climbing up the AT-AT's leg. But I decided that changing the angle so that the viewer can see the Imperial troops would be a good idea to add some more drama and humour. I'm glad I made the change - although it meant a lot more work drawing the characters - as well as trying to imagine what the roof of an AT-AT might look like if it was scrunched up!?
The first driver is so terrified he's about to jump straight off the top of the AT-AT to avoid being eaten - saying "I'm outta here!". The other driver's saying "Hold up - wait for me" - while the Commander won't abandon his post and is angrily shouting at the Rancor: "You there, stop that!"
This is an entirely original depiction of George Lucas's characters - drawn in Photoshop using a Wacom pad. I put a huge amount of effort into this - and I hope that comes across even in this low-res version (the original is 600dpi).
Here's my latest painting "Asajj Ventress". If you're not familiar with her you can take a look at her in action in the following video link: [link]
There are a couple different versions of her when it comes to her design, so I tried to mix the elements that I liked from both and then do my own little spin on her. I wanted to keep a certain bit of beauty to her, though I found that difficult to do lol Anyways hope you enjoy!
