Clone Commander Ganch Concept by Hodges-Art Clone Commander Ganch Concept by Hodges-Art
This was a sketch I did of the new Clone Commander Ganch (feel free to look up what it means... it's pretty nuts! Pablo came up with the name) during the concept stage. Lucasfilm told me to have fun with it, so I did!

I placed his Blasters in a similar placement like Doc Holiday. I also gave him a full chest and shoulder paldren, different from other Clone Commanders. His helmet paint job is also unique.

Photoshop CS4/Wacom tablet sketch.

Oh man! This is one of my favorite Sideshow figures. This sketch and description shed a ton of light on the character. I dig him even more now! BTW, by far the coolest helmet design on a clone.

wow very cool concept.
i love the way the red markings are drawn over his armor.
jsut a little question. I'm working on a clone armor myself. would you mind if i used the idea of the blaster placements. It would look great on a real actual armor..

anyways, great work.

This isn't just a concept, this IS a "Canon" Clone Commander I created for Lucasfilm. You'd be better off just painting the armor this color scheme. Pretty much every 501st member would know who it is and it would easily get approved.

I know of only 1 or 2 other members working on Cmdr Ganch armor right now, so you'd stand out.

i'm not working on a commander ganch armor. I don't look working on stuff that's already been done. I'm making my own personal clone costume/armor.

Well that Blaster configuration is unique to Ganch. Do what you want, I don't own the idea I just designed it.

Cool design for a clone. I love the more original styles for them. It always kind of bugged me how most of the commanders and ARC troopers have pauldrons and kamas and carry two hip-holstered pistols, so your spin on the norm is very interesting. I especially like the helmet. :D

First of all, great work - I love the ideas you came up with to create a unique character. I can't wait to see what you do with the rest of the Act on Instinct story.

I was told on Wookieepedia that the definition of "ganch" had no bearing on the creation of this character's name. That doesn't seem right, based on what you've said here?

Thanks! I've had this idea for awhile and when i was asked to design a Clone Commander, I jumped on it.

LOL After reading that definition, I'm really hoping for the Deadpool of clone troopers here. :P Awesome work; very distinct with the red shoulder paldren.

He's going to develop nicely over the storyline.

*grins* which definition are you going with? Getting dropped onto sharp stakes from a high distance, or talking too much?
