Yoda colored by Eldelgado Yoda colored by Eldelgado
I was never a fan of Yoda doing a drunken monkey lightsaber fighting style... i always thought that for someone like Yoda a lightsaber duel would be... i dont know... too primitive.

His ally is the Force... hand to hand combat is for padawans :D

all me... art and color... character by Lucasfilm.

ps: sorry about the fanboy rant

This is great stuff! :+fav: I know what you mean about Yoda's lightsabre combat style... but i still love him!

Yer absolutely right! Yoda is too wise to fight with the lightsaber bouncing like a rubber ball ^-^

Fanboy rant heard (or rather, read), and accepted. I wholeheartedly agree with you, mah man.

That dual was such an unintentionally goofy thing it really made me sad. This, however, is an infinitely more pleasing (and PLAUSIBLE) outcome. I approve. :nod:

Love this I will! ^_^ WOOOOOOOOOOW :wow:

I am SOOOOO loving how you colored all of this! The drawing itself is perfect! ^_^

Your vision of his fighting style, however great, would be obvious for him. This monkey style brings some contrast to his character.
Sorry, I just saw Revenge of the Sith...

i agree - the yoda fight scene really upsetted me.
Dan-Van-Cool Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ya it was cool to see Yoda fight, but it also didn't fit. I figured it was just me though.
I wanted to see him like Magneto or something hovering using pure power, or "force" if you will. :P

excellent love yoda
xilefcosan Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2008  Hobbyist Artist
This is definitely more like classic Yoda on Dagobah. I love how the background is out of focus, emphasizing Yoda's concentration on the lightsaber while tuning out the rest of the world.

Man, I wish Yoda still had his lightsaber on Dagobah to really show Luke how it's done!

Wonderful job on this one! Definite fave for me.

yoda is hard to draw but this is one of the best yoda drawings i've ever seen
JackFrost423 Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2007
First off, I love your art and colors. I've been a big admirer of your work all the way since BATTLEGODS (and I'm so happy to see you are a big Street Fighter fan!).
I totally agree on Yoda. I always imagined him to be enlightened past battle, with some beautiful force powers like having vines grow out of the ground to capture his enemies.
I know Lucas wanted to make this Knight's Templar allegory that dovetailed into today's political nightmare, while still utilizing some of the original samurai influence of A NEW HOPE...but adding immature humor to the series and marginalizing the force...all while immasculating Vader...well, the Emperor will probably be found more forgiving on the matter than I am. I was a sad panda after seeing those new ones.
Just like the Matrix 2...I expected Neo's powers to grow, where he was capable of re-writing reality itself, and then all of the philosophy that comes with changing things, and our influence on reality and stuff. Why did they even make him a hacker, if they didn't plan to take the story there? One day, when computer animation is really user-friendly, I'll make my own versions of those stories for my friends to marvel over.
In the meantime, thanks for reminding me that I still love Yoda and may the Force be with you.

No hombre! Te quedó de lujo, felicidades. Tienes un arte excelente!
CrescentDebris Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2007
Thats exactly what I think too. He should have done what you've drawn here. My friend said before that if they HAD to do such a crazy animation for "action" purposes... it should have been more of spirit/force version of himself.

haha I agree with you, I still don't understand why does he needs a walking cane when he is capable of moving like that.
PadawanLinea Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
At the time of Episode II, Yoda is 877 years old. He kinda needs the cane. And besides, the Force isn't something you can just tap into all of the time. It obviously takes a lot of effort and can be exhausting. 'sides, he seems to get along just fine with his cane and his hoverchair.
Calacoyote Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2007
Maybe he's just senile.
SJKclue Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2007
YAY! :yoda: Yoda Rules! This drawing Rules!
No one can defeat yoda when he's using the force...

thelearningcurv Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2007
heh, it would be funny to see yoda manipulating the saber with the force to fight the opponent, than him actually touching it.... or even him using the force as a blocker, like Invisible Woman..... great work man.....
