Predator kills the Star Wars universe - part 1 by Robert-Shane Predator kills the Star Wars universe - part 1 by Robert-Shane
I'm a 'wanabee' Star Wars artist - I've never had anything published - so I when I think up a new picture I try to make it something that's original and presents a new take on familiar characters while also demonstrating my artistic capabilities...

For this piece I imagined what might happen if the Predator had showed up during Empire Strikes Back in that scene when Darth Vader's telling the assembled group of bounty hunters to go look for the Millennium Falcon. I thought this would be a good scene to add some 'drama' to - because in the movie all we see is the characters just standing there. And I thought of introducing the Predator to the scene as the 'ultimate' hunter among a bunch of amateurs!

The Predator went straight for Boba Fett - realizing that he's the most capable of the group that Vader assembled. And he's serving up Boba's head to Vader as if to say "I'm better than this guy!". The other bounty hunters are all taken by surprise and are only just reacting to what's happened... too late! I think Vader would have known the Predator was there so isn't phased - he's just saying "You're gonna have to clean that up now."

The tagline 'Predator kills the Star Wars universe' is a play on words from Marvel comics' 'Punisher kills the Marvel universe'.

This is an original depiction of copyright characters that I don't own. Star Wars belongs to George Lucas/Disney, and the Predator belongs to 20th Century Fox (I think). This is fan art and isn't for sale or reproduction. It was drawn in Photoshop using a Wacom pad and is a very low resolution version of the original.

Part 2 is here:

I found this piece on a random google search and once I saw it was on DA, bee lined my way to find you!  Mind blowing work!

Even mind-blowinger is that you state no one has snatched you up to work on their properties in an official capacity.  Their loss.
