Biker Scout vs Ewoks by Robert-Shane Biker Scout vs Ewoks by Robert-Shane
I've always loved the design of the Biker Scouts (aka Scout Troopers) from Return of the Jedi. I think it's amazing how they made this costume look different from the original, iconic, Stormtroopers, but still similar enough that it looks like it's part of the same army.

I've added some Ewoks to make this look like an ambush on (the forest moon of) Endor. The placement of the Ewoks, and the trees behind them are key parts of the composition - designed to draw the viewer's eye in toward the Biker Scout.

This was drawn in Photoshop using a Wacom pad. I rarely use anything other than the standard 'hard round' brush - but for this one, I also used the 'stipple' brush on the Ewoks' fur and the tree trunks. The 'scattered leaves' brush was also a big help in painting the leaves on the trees in the background.

The characters are copyright of Disney - this is fan art and isn't for sale or reproduction.

Scout Trooper: Ohhh god...stay back...I'm warning you to stay back or I'll shoot!....stay back....STAY BACK! STAY BA--!!!

Even though he is wearing his helmet, I can tell that he has a terrified look on his face.

Hopefully, the ewoks just capture him instead of tearing him apart. Though, he might be their dinner later on...I hope the rebels rescued him. That will be ironic! :D

I'll give this art TWO THUMBS UP! Not just because it looks BEAUTIFUL, but the feels of what's it like being surrounded by blood-thirsty primitives and there's no way out from this heart-pumping situation. Nobody's gonna save you out of nowhere, so it is either fight to the death or just took a quick escape route by shooting yourself in the head. But if you have a thermal detonator, it's best to take your surrounding enemies with you to Purgatory or Hell itself.
Maybe you would have add a thermal detonator on his empty hand, to make your art more interesting! Though, it is a bit ridiculous to the Empire that the Scout Trooper died taking the teddy bears with him instead of the Rebels his comrades are fighting. LOL!!!!

If you get surrounded and you know you're screwed, use the thermal detonator to bring them all down with you!

wow - those Ewoks would never see that coming ...tick...tick...BOOM! Ewok pieces everywhere! :lol:

Yeah, I never bought the fact that Ewoks can take down Storm troopers. I mean stick and stones can hurt stormies?

I just assume that they just brought the stormies down under their body weight, so the stormies couldn't fight, then let the rebels capture them xD

Great pic! Even as a child I totally liked biker scouts and I thought it was stupid that they didn't catch Luke and Leia. I hope that guy gets away :D
