Star Wars - Sith Predator by Robert-Shane Star Wars - Sith Predator by Robert-Shane
I like Star Wars - but Predator is another all-time classic sci-fi movie. So I thought it would be cool to merge both of those universes - and here's my depiction of a 'Sith Predator'.

Can you imagine the mayhem he could cause with his cloaking device, shoulder cannon and twin lightsabers mounted on his arm!

I've made some changes to the standard Predator costume - to make it more in-keeping with the look of the Star Wars universe - and if you look closely you might pick up some subtle design cues I adapted from notable Star Wars characters.

I've drawn this Predator with a mainly white skin colouring - although I added some black and grey blotches in stripes as I thought this would suggest a tiger-like pattern. I also thought that the Predator would look even more menacing with some red dreadlocks - instead of the usual black.

I took a look time over this - because I'd originally thought of drawing it in a movie-poster style - but I decided that it would be easier for the viewer to take in the concept with a less cluttered approach. I also tried a few different versions of the armour and colouring - but this is my favourite.

I have also drawn this Sith Predator wearing a redesigned Star-Wars-inspired helmet - and I'll probably post that at some point if I see that there's any interest in this character.

This is an entirely original illustration - taking inspiration from George Lucas's universe and Stan Winston's creature design - first drawn in pencil, then scanned and coloured in Photoshop using a Wacom pad.

Hope you like!

Hello! :D Wow, this is awesome. ._. But anyway, do you mind if I use this for a Sith Empire vs Republic Fanon Wiki Project? I'll credit you in the image description and trivia section.

Cool - so long as you do remember to credit me and it isn't used commercially. And I'm very proud of having created the concept and look for this character - so I'd be interested to see what you write for the wiki if you could send a link when it's done?

I was just thinking that the predators needed a tech upgrade, cause they weren't able to whoop Humanity's collective ass easily enough...Oh, wait, no, I most certainly was not! Let's face it, making the Predators any more badass than they already are will make the universe explode from sheer badassery. Don't make the universe explode, dude.

:rofl: you're right - it would seem totally unfair to give a predator Sith powers as well. But I guess the universe it living on borrowed time!

Thanks for the favs - but I never heard of 'Darth Yautja' - and couldn't find it when I searched. Do you have a link please - I'd like to see what it looks like?

Yautja is the name of Predator species. So in this case Darth Yautja = Darth Predator (as the Sith Predator).

Thanks - found it! I like the Darth Maul/Predator mash-up - it reminds me a little of the Predator in Predator 2.
