Rancor vs AT-AT Walker by Robert-Shane Rancor vs AT-AT Walker by Robert-Shane
I had an idea that Jabba's Rancor would sometimes go for an evening stroll around Tatooine - and on this occasion he found an AT-AT to play with. (Perhaps the AT-AT was there as part of the deployment sent to look for the two droids at the start of 'A New Hope'?)

When I originally envisaged this piece I thought I would draw it from a low angle - looking up at the Rancor climbing up the AT-AT's leg. But I decided that changing the angle so that the viewer can see the Imperial troops would be a good idea to add some more drama and humour. I'm glad I made the change - although it meant a lot more work drawing the characters - as well as trying to imagine what the roof of an AT-AT might look like if it was scrunched up!?

The first driver is so terrified he's about to jump straight off the top of the AT-AT to avoid being eaten - saying "I'm outta here!". The other driver's saying "Hold up - wait for me" - while the Commander won't abandon his post and is angrily shouting at the Rancor: "You there, stop that!"

This is an entirely original depiction of George Lucas's characters - drawn in Photoshop using a Wacom pad. I put a huge amount of effort into this - and I hope that comes across even in this low-res version (the original is 600dpi).

Hope you like!

Reminds me of the scenes from The Courtship of Princess Leia when they are on Dathomir and the Rancors are crushing AT STs like toys

That's one of the early novels that I never read! The cover always put me off - but if I knew the story had Rancors crushing AT STs I would've bought it! That's what they should have put on the cover! :lol:

Honestly the novel is pretty good, though the cover DID need a do over

Rancors can take on All Terrain Attack Transports, but die from a closing door.
Star Wars Galaxy is unbalanced.
