Sandtrooper: "what's this?" by Robert-Shane Sandtrooper: "what's this?" by Robert-Shane
I wanted to draw another Star Wars character - and thought that a Sandtrooper would give me the opportunity to play with some intense desert sunlight.

If you've seen Star Wars - you'll recognize that my inspiration for this piece is the "look sir... droids" scene.

I've drawn it from an angle not seen in the film - and like to think that this was just before the cameras started rolling.

Hope you like!

Sandtroopers are just as capable as Stormtroopers.

You're right of course - we know stormtroopers are a weak minded bunch! I didn't intend this to look like he found the 'one' ring - but if you look at the scene in the film it just looks like a round piece of metal and i couldn't make out what it's meant to be! Perhaps this is just a piece of bling from an escaped slave girl! :lol:

Fun Fact: This Stormtrooper's name name is Davin Felth. He secretly killed his commander before Han Solo escaped Tatooine.

Very awesome my friend
I wonder if C-3P0's leg was replaced after the ring feel off because its silver instead of gold.

Hard to belive this is digital art cause it looks more like water colors or something like that. LOL
Either way looks great! Keep it up Vod'ika!

Thanks (and sorry for slow reply).

I watched the movie closely when I was planning to draw this - but couldn't tell what the piece was that fell off (but guessed it was from C-3PO) - so that's why I gave it a bit of added emphasis in my drawing. I know C-3PO had one gold leg and one silver (below the knee) - but without going back to watch the movies again I can't remember if the change happened on screen?

I hadn't looked at this drawing in a while - so thanks for giving me an excuse to go back to it. Still not sure I could see the Sarlac's mouth... if only I had as vivid an imagination as you clearly possess! :) Thanks for the fav.

Unique concept. One could almost say a mix of "Lord of the Rings" (the One Ring) and "Star Wars Episode IV A New Hope." Very interesting...

Thanks for the thoughtful comment. If you look back at the scene in the movie - it's really kind of understated - for what is a fairly big plot point. I'm surprised there wasn't more 'drama' added to the search - and that's what I was trying to convey with this picture. I guess that's down to George Lucas's famed 'documentary style' of film making. And who am I to argue!

I always wondered too! When I was researching this piece - I watched the scene over and over again and I'm still not sure what it is. I'm sure someone will though - it's probably a question in a Star Wars trivia quiz!

The way the suns reflect in the background add to the desert feeling of the planet and coloring on the armor adds to the sandy environment. Incredible :wow:

Thanks again. I really like drawing Stormtroopers - so I enjoyed this a lot. I'm glad you noticed the sand because I originally drew him a pristine white outfit - before I remembered to put the sand on!

I'm very glad that you're looking so closely! Not everyone will appreciate the detail I put into this.
I used 'artistic licence' in a few places in this picture to make it how I wanted. For example - I made the shoulder pauldron orange (a sergeant) instead of white (I thought this would be the first thing that was commented on!). And the piece that he's holding up is shiny - just because I thought it would be more eye-catching.
I put the 'lines' in because I like the detail - and the vents are also different from the trooper masks in A New Hope - which were thin blue stripes. But, as I say, I'm pleased that someone has taken the time to look at this to notice such things. :clap:
