How fast is your spaceship? StarWars by Loopydave How fast is your spaceship? StarWars by Loopydave
Starting my own 'How fast is your spaceship?' week of scifi nerdiness. Today, Star Wars...
What can I say, I love my scifi!

Pencil, ink on paper, Paint in photoshop.

EDIT: Fixed the spelling of 'Millennium' (d'oh!) and added the parsec disclaimer. If only George Lucas had put one in in his movie ;)

Revealed! The reason the Falcon's Hyperdrive kept conking out: Look closely - Aeroplanes are plagued with gremlins; this old bird has a Bad Robot.

Very nicely done. Reminds me of the parody works from the Mad or Cracked magazines back in the 70s or 80s.

Beautifully done, though Han's nose is a bit skewed.  Love the logo patch on his vest.

His nose is trying to point away from Chewie, who is in a desperate need of a bath ;)

I figure that .5 past lightspeed is in regular space, not 'hyper' space. Which is still pissing all over the theory of reletivity but hey

And the parsec comment? The hyperspace drive must work by pulling the bit of space yu want to go to, and the bit of space you are in, together. Wormholes being the favored medium nowadays. So the Falcons' motors somehow reduced the distanc between Kessel and wherever the Falcon was to 12 parsecs, then flew towards it at 1.5 times the speed of light. Maths will be needed to work this out any further. (About 1.73 years travel time?)

If you want the nerdy answer to why parsecs I can supply it :)  Kessel is a large asteroid in a large asteroid field.  There is only one way that smugglers take to get in and out and it takes a very specific route and that route has very specific turns and jumps.  He is telling everyone that he actually made the run in the shortest distance which is the record.  Kessel is the home of spice, a highly addictive drug mentioned at the begining of attack of the clones. 

I like this alot by the way.  The Ford label is the funniest part to me.

Yeah, it's like saying "i made the 100 meter run in 65 meters". I think GL just didn't give it thought as always, lol.

Regarding your images, i love those little details, like the laundry or the "ford" brand sign on Solos vest
Please do much more images like this, it's awesome!
