Predator kills the Star Wars universe - part 2 by Robert-Shane Predator kills the Star Wars universe - part 2 by Robert-Shane
You might have already seen my first painting in this series:

I don't really think the Predator would, could or should 'kill' Darth Vader (I like both characters) - but I simply wanted to create something that wouldn't look out of place on the cover of a comic book. My goal is to have something published so I'm trying to create images that show I have what it takes!

This was drawn in Photoshop using a Wacom pad. To create the Predator's cloak effect I drew him in silhouette on a separate layer then added some glow and stroke effects. Then I reduced the opacity and 'drew' in the details of his costume using the eraser on a low opacity.

This is fan art of characters I don't own the copyright to (Star Wars belongs to Disney/Lucasfilm and Predator belongs to Dark Horse and/or 20th Century Fox?) so it's not for sale or reproduction. This is a very low res version of the original.

Predator might be strong but the Force allows to manipulate and sense things... even if hidden he surely can sense the Alien and get the deathgrip on him ^^

very nice but Vader would win in my opinion

Amazing art. That would be a great movie. Do you think Disney can acquire the rights to Predator? :)

This is sick. i personally think predator might be able to stand a chance because a big trait of predator is adapting and i think he could adapt to the lightsaber and find a way around it

Thanks (and welcome to DA)... I'm a big fan of the Predator - so I like to think they might stand a chance against Vader especially if, let's say, they were somehow immune to the force - in which case it would be a straight-up physical battle which I think Vader would find an interesting test!

yes I like both characters too.  They both awesome!  Not sure if the predator has much of a chance though, it depends on the experience of that particular predator, and in the movies I seen, I only seen young predators in action.  No idea how skilled the older ones are.  But Darth Vader is strong in the dark side of the force, and he has a light saber too.  Even if the Predator uses that plasma cannon, Vader would just hit it right back.

I agree - I don't think a Predator would have a chance against Vader - but my main intention was just to try to show how Vader might look if he went up against someone (anyone) who could pose a serious threat to him. I could have put my own character in the place of the Predator - but I thought that it was better to use something that people would recognise.

And I think you did great in that regard.  The Predator is capable of being threatening to Vader, that much is sure.  More threatening than most characters anyway.  Unless you want to go with Gohan from DBZ.  Unless of course if Gohan was on Earth and Vader was on the Death Star.  Then Gohan would be done for. LOL  Actually that would almost seem like an interesting concept.
