Star Wars Imperial Terminator by Robert-Shane Star Wars Imperial Terminator by Robert-Shane
Could James Cameron direct one of the new Star Wars movies?

Perhaps if he'd been involved back in the '80s we might have seen something like this character - an Imperial Terminator - make an appearance?

Or maybe not... but I just wanted to draw a Star Wars / Terminator crossover... and here's the result!

I don't think a Terminator could be a 'Sith Lord' even if it does have a "learning computer" for a brain - but I think it would have "detailed files" on how to use a lightsaber (did you notice the T2 references there? lol). And it's giving off some kind of electrical discharge - not force lightning.

At first I just drew the Terminator character - but ended up adding the Emperor, the Royal Guards and Strormtroopers to add some interest to the background.

I can't imagine a character in Star Wars wearing sunglasses - but I thought I had to keep them as they're such a familiar part of the Terminator character. I tried to make subtle changes to make them look a little bit more 'space age' though.

This is an original depiction of George Lucas’s / Disney’s copyright Star Wars characters – as well as James Cameron's / Pacificor's (I think they're the current rights holders?) Terminator character. It's intended solely to show my artistic ability. I’m not a professional – this is fan art – and none of my work is for sale or available for reproduction.

Well hey just a thought and no doubt you'd gain a lot of fans and a lot of cash you could have your own kind of comics called Cross over comics every issue is a movie world with another movie thrown in like you could have predator in some gladiator thing haha

oh yes good choice with the background, it works great. And you are correct, he would not be able to use the force, but he would exile at welding a light saber. he even go up to Boba Fet and say "You are Terminated!" and walk away. after a few moments Boba's head falls off. yeah, he be that bad ass.

Thanks - very kind of you to say so. I've come a long way in just a couple of years - and I'm still nowhere near as good as I'd like to be - so I guess I'm just trying to say that it's amazing what you can accomplish with practice and persistence! So if you have the ideas - start putting down on paper (or screen)! And thanks for the watch - always happy to hear what you think works (and what doesn't!). :thumbsup:

Have you taken any classes for art? I've been drawing my whole life... It may sound pessimistic and defeatist, but I think certain people just have a limit to their skills. I never took any classes save one in high school. I see some excellent art on here by people and sometimes they'll write how long it took them and I'm just shocked. "This took an hour and a half." I look at the work and know that it would likely take me over 6 hours just to produce a flawed re-creation of the same work. And, to produce an original work of equal quality would be damn near impossible. Then I find when I do attempt to up my game... when I get really ambitious with a project ant it takes so long, and I become so impatient with repeated mistakes.. more often then not I end up scrapping the idea. ...but maybe you've had similar troubles in years past. I don't know whether you can identify with that, but it's frustrating.

Sorry for the slow reply. I've been thinking of how to reply - but truth is I haven't been sure what to say. I'm not a pro artist or a teacher or anything so don't want to come over all preachy or something - so anything I say please take it in the context of me trying to be helpful.

I haven't taken any art classes (other than as a kid at school) - I'm entirely self taught. If I have any tips it would be to start by drawing from real life - learning how 'things' interact with other 'things'; how lighting works and practicing technical skills. Then you can start to investigate and develop techniques suited to whatever medium you prefer.

Personally, I also found it enlightening to copy the comic pages of artists I admired. Something about just trying to understand how the images sit on the page was very useful - and the more you do it - the more it sinks in and you can draw on it as a skill for when you want to lay out your own pieces.

If you're interested in drawing comic characters - I'd also recommend some reading which you might find interesting: 'How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way' (by Stan Lee and John Buscema); and 'Comics and Sequential Art' (by Will Eisner) - both offer basic but important lessons.

Of course you may be right about each of us having our own "limit" - but I really do think you can push that limit. I'm nowhere near as good an artist as I'd like to be - but when I look back a couple of years I see that I've improved a lot - so that gives me great encouragement to keep on. Anyway, I hope that's of some use - and possibly even encourages you to keep persevering with your own art.

Actually, that was quite encouraging. Thank you. I hadn't thought about copying comics for practice before. I can imagine how that would help, particularly in developing one's ability to draw figures in different poses from different angles, which has always been something I've struggled with. As for the reading, I may look into the titles you mentioned. In the past I always disregarded instructional books because they all seem to want to teach from the same kind of simple-shape-framework type of method. I've resisted this idea because I've always thought, "how am I suppose to guess proportions and lay out a full body frame when I don't even have a clear picture of what I want to do and how it should look in my head yet?" Maybe these books will be different, then again maybe not. I may have to just bite the bullet and try to re-learn that way.

Good. I'm glad that was of some use. I still remember the first time I copied out some full pages of sequential comic art. Even though I wasn't creating anything original - it was incredibly useful because it was helping me imagine how the artist had laid out the page and how the characters sat within the panels. I found it very worthwhile. I also had to 're-learn' to draw using the "simple-shape-framework". And I know what you mean about it seeming counter-intuitive - but the thing is that that method allows you to 'construct' people like blocks - so that you can get started with showing how the image might turn out without getting caught up in the detail - which means it also allows you to change things easier if you decide that's not how you wanted it to look. And one last tip - I will very often pick up an action figure and pose it until I find a pose I like - which helps me form the idea in my head before committing anything to paper (or screen).
