AlphaBots Week IX: I is for IG-88

This week I chose to draw one of the most feared droids in the Star Wars universe. He's a bounty hunter of great renown; at least enough so that Darth Vader himself called him in (along with Dengar, Zuckuss, 4-LOM, Bossk, and Boba Fett) to charge him with finding the evasive Millenium Falcon.

IG-88 is actually the designation for a line of assassin droids. The one we know from The Empire Strikes Back is one of many, with a unique designation of IG-88B. His master, IG-88A, murdered the scientists who created him right after he was first activated. Then he transferred his personality into three others, among them IG-88B.

The IG series have been around in the Star War universe for a long time. Some we've seen are the IG-100 series, which served as General Grievous's personal guards in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith; the IG-86 sentinel droids which were featured in Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network and who were the precursors to the IG-88; and the IG lancer droid, a specialized combat model also introduced in that cartoon.

Drawn with a Wacom Intuos 2 in Manga Studio 4 Debut.
