Questionable Orders by Sparkypoo Questionable Orders by Sparkypoo
CAPTAIN REX!

I realised that I'd never drawn a clone trooper before, so this happened...

Around 7 hours, with 6H - 6B pencils, tortillon and a putty rubber.

All credit for the costume in the reference photo goes to the ridiculously talented OrtharRrith of The Dented Helmet forums. The image I used for reference can be found here:

Thanks for looking :rose:

You are quite welcome! I just took a look through your DA profile and saw that you love Hans Zimmer almost as much as I do! That's awesome! What soundtrack of his would you say is your favorite? And yes, it can only be one! For now, anyway, ha ha.

Are you kidding? I love Captain Rex, as well as the Clones in general, but specifically the ARC's, Null ARC's, and Clone Commandos. And don't get me started on the Mandalorians...

After seeing all of your Star Wars pieces, I will definitely send you a message or two very soon!

Nice one! Very realistic and has the dark fog effect of modern posters :) Also nice textures!

I would recommend you charcoals, they're really faster and less messy! I mean, your picture is not messy, but I know how hard is it to stay away from graphite mess :) And the reason I'm suddenly saying all this is I thought it was charcoals when I looked at the pic *_*

Excelllent art, my friend. It makes me sad to think that so grand a character as Rex turned on the Jedi. U_U

Thank you so much! Yeah, it's kinda sad...I watched Revenge of the Sith for the first time a few days ago (shameful that it's taken me so long to watch it, I know!) and I thought the Order 66 scene was probably one of the most emotional scenes in the movie. Sad times! :cries:

matanui2001 Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
MAkes me wonder, what did Rex do? Your picture expresses perfectly that moment I bet most clones felt. That monet when they tought "Kill the Jedi?" But of course, they didn't bother to challenge such orders, and even Cody went bad after 66. This is why I actually want Rex to die before Order 66. I would rather have him die a hero. You?

Pictures of Rex drawn realistically are always enjoyable. I can't stand the cartoon style of Clone Wars, so I think this makes him look much cooler.

Thanks Vhetin! :huggle: Really happy to hear that; I wasn't sure if this drawing would go down well, because of the fact that I haven't been true to the series. Good to know that the opposite is the case! :aww:

Yeah, it's true :) I like your artwork :) It's rare that I'm captivated by artwork. Normally I enjoy photography more, but your art is really captivating because it looks so realistic. I love the use of tones and shading, you've got that down perfectly. I honestly think you should be earning loads.

You are good enough. I don't know why you haven't been discovered really. You will be one day!

Thanks, ner vod!

Agreed, those jaig eyes are gorgeous! I really like the clone armour design in general, I think it works really well. But TCW as a whole...meh, I'm not a fan of it either! :shrug: Jar Jar was in one of the few episodes I watched, and my reaction was pretty much GET THAT THE HELL OFF MY SCREEN :lmao:
