You mean a Ralph McQuarrie based design?

Very Nice Job :)
Is that the Emperor's Personal Shuttle?

It was designed to be in place of the Lambda shuttle so yes :D

Nice, it has a bit of a Naboo design look due to it being sleek. :icondragongrin:
It looks like a more luxurious shuttle to me then the lambda, it looks larger to me.
Maybe for the Emperor it may have more personal space for him,(of course his shuttle would be heavily modified)

It is based on the same design, although I changed some elements. It appeared first as a concept for Palpatine's shuttle for the Return of the Jedi, but was rejected and reused later on. I thought it was a bit too smooth for an Imperial design so I changed it :)

It's like the one in Return of the Jedi is a Microsoft shuttle and this one is an Apple. :D

hahaha that's a pretty good comparison :D Even though the Lambda class shuttle was really iconic, something smoother could have been a better choice for the Emperor. BTW the initial design was used once in a Clone Wars, although I don't remember which one was it. It was much more rough and greebled though.

Huh, really? I knew one of the other concept designs: [link] was used for this shuttle: [link] But I didn't know another of the shuttle concepts was used.

Yep, it was in one of the newer arcs. Here's the ship from the show : [link]
You will notice that they're quite different, as I changed some elements, but all the basic shapes are there.

Huh! I never connected that one with concept art. But then, one of Star Wars' greatest traditions is repurposing concept art, such as the Corellian gunship, Victory-class Star Destroyer, etc. ;)

REJECTED!? Why would they reject this? It looks way better than the one they decided to use!

Yep it looks more original for sure. However, Lucas wanted a more striking design, one that could be easily recognized as an Imperial, so they went with an angular shuttle.

Very cool and sexy design. It seems as though this is the Imperial equivalent to the chrome Naboo ships that toted Ardalla around.

AdamKop Featured By Owner May 1, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Yep, it's probably the most "exclusive" design for the Imperial shuttle that was done for the old trilogy - it looked better than the Lambda because just like with the Naboo ship you could easily see it's for someone important.

I could think the scene with han meets the hundreds stormtroopers. Instead of the tie fighter, we could use this ship. :)

This is definitly a rebel ship. Notice the smart ass grin at the front. The empire has a noticible menacing quality. They take names. Team Palpitine. LOL

Haha yeah it is a bit too "industrial-looking" in the concept drawings and it's no surprise that it didn't make it to the movie. It even appeared lately in the Clone Wars series as a cargo ship :D

Now that you mention it, it does look a litle industrial. But it's that smart ass smirk on the front that gets me.

Looks much better than that "tyderium" they did use or the ball cockpit version they used in revenge.

Yeah I always preferred this concept to other versions, well except for the original - it is pretty iconic after all :)

Yeah I think it's pretty much impossible to top the original Lambda shuttle but the rejected designs were cool in their own way.

3ds max for modeling and built-in Mental Ray for rendering. I think I did some slight color adjustments in Photoshop as well.
