Star Wars Shock Troopers by Robert-Shane Star Wars Shock Troopers by Robert-Shane
I like the design of the Shock Troopers from Revenge of the Sith... so I thought I'd draw some - and this is the result.

When I started this I also drew the Emperor in the background with his arms raised up to the sky shooting force lightning - as I'd imagined this scene taking place after they'd landed on Mustafar (the volcanic planet) - with him commanding the troops to "find Lord Vader". But... it kind of distracted from the Shock Troopers so I left him out. And I think the piece is better for it.

This is a low-res version of my drawing which I sketched on a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and finished on my desktop PC using Photoshop and a Wacom pad. It's an original depiction of George Lucas’s / Disney’s copyright characters – 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.

Yeah - they didn't get used enough in the movie (I think they were in two scenes - one in the Senate and one on Mustafar) - but sometimes "less is more" as the old saying goes!

Imagining the Emperor in the background.... Does not fit or appeal very highly, to me. The work, being focused solely on the Shock Troopers, is brilliant enough without a distraction in the background.

The piece itself gives a sense of urgency.

Thanks very much for your considered comment Steven - it made me feel much better about deciding to leave out the Emperor from the background (and sorry for taking to long to reply)! :thumbsup:

The delay is quite alright. I honestly doubted a reply, seeing as someone with this talent is usually too busy to comment much. You are very welcome for my comment, and it pleases me to see that someone thinks my opinion matters (seriously, it means quite a bit).

As a side note, I'd prefer it if you used my username or simply Synx when referring to me rather than my actual name. I don't know why, but it bothers me when people use my actual name.

Thanks Synx. I always try to find the time to respond and check out the page of everyone who comments on my work (which is where I spotted your name -but point taken) :)
