Star Wars Manga by Robert-Shane Star Wars Manga by Robert-Shane
Here's my idea for a Manga/Anime version of Star Wars.

There was a Star Wars Manga adaptation published in the late '90s - but I wanted my version to look a little 'leaner' - more like the style used for the 'Battle of the Planets' (aka Gatchaman) cartoon or the Studio Ghibli movies.

My aim was to capture a cartoon feel but to also paint realistic textures and detail. I also intentionally gave the characters a stylised look. It was a challenge to get the balance right - but the end result is exactly what I wanted.

This is an entirely original depiction of George Lucas's characters. First drawn in pencil, then inked, scanned and coloured in Photoshop using a Wacom pad. The original is much higher resolution and is over 300mb!

Hope you like!

Tarkin is not that nutty looking in real life.

Thanks very much - and yes Tarkin's definitely the 'main' villain in my eyes - why else would they have gone to the trouble and expense to get an actor who at that time was more famous than any of the others (except Sir Alec Guinness). And I just thought that his character and look would lend itself perfectly to the manga style - where older characters are often drawn to look very creepy and sinister!

Well the studio needed a few big names for the film to make it marketable.He is one of those underrated villains.Even though Vader is awesome hes a tragic hero not a villain so Im tired of people calling him the villain. Tarken blew up a planet! If thats not evil then I do not know what is. And yes you got the creepiness down which is perfect since Cushing was a horror film actor.
