Star Wars - Sith Predator (with helmet) by Robert-Shane Star Wars - Sith Predator (with helmet) by Robert-Shane
Yesterday, I posted this:


Today's a new day - so here's an alternative version of my 'Sith Predator'... this time wearing his helmet!

I'd intended to use the helmet in the earlier image - but ended up drawing the Predator's face and was pleased with it - so left it. As you can see - basically I've just added the helmet on top of my other drawing - but I also ended up re-working the colour scheme because I wanted this to clearly stand out from the other version.

I haven't tried to do anything revolutionary with the helmet design - but instead I went for a subtle cross of the Predator helmet with elements of Darth Vader's - and I'm pretty pleased with the result!

As with the other version - this takes inspiration from George Lucas's universe and Stan Winston's creature design. The character (and the helmet) was first drawn in pencil, then scanned and coloured in Photoshop using a Wacom pad. This is a reduced resolution version of the original - which is 600dpi.

Hope you like!

I think I came up with a fitting story for this guy. This predator was hunting, refused to kill his prey, and because of the steict honor code that says a predator who fails to kill his target must kill himself or someone else must do it, he ran off hiding and finds himself in a galaxy far away. He then begins to familiarize himself with the technology from this new galaxy and begins to hunt down and kill random targets until he catches the attention of a powerful sith imperial (Palpatine, Dooku, Vader, etc.) who hires him to be a personal assassin, and gives him new body armor with sith saber attachments and upgraded and retrofitted traditional predator weaponry. He then becomes one if the most renowned assassins in the galaxy and with his help, the sith will eventually conquer all of the galaxy, unless Luke Skywalker and/or a butt load of ewoks fight him and eventually win.

:lol: thanks! I'd love to see someone have a go at making this. Since I drew it I found out there is someone who does cosplay as a Predator Sith - I think called Darth Yautja. They look very cool but more like a cross between a Predator and Darth Maul.

I think I only have nightmares when stupid people are involved ... like Transformers or Alien vs Predator 2. :)

ooh AvP2... now that is the stuff of nightmares! Which is strange - as it's supposed to be a horror but it's not scary because you can't see what's happening it's so dark! It's just horrific because it's so bad! :lol:

Like with Transformers, I thought the humans got in the way. The boy was willing to sell out his grandfather's legacy for a chance to get laid, his parents were morons, the fat guy ... he needed to be stepped on, and the FBI agent was pathetic. In Aliens vs Predators 2, it ... well ... you've got it right. :)

I liked Predators since I went in it cold; no previews, no idea what was happening. When I originally picked it up, I didn't have my reading glasses on, so I missed the outline of the predator on the box. The cast and idea looked cool, so I gave it a twirl ... and I liked it. :)

Transformers...hmm I know what you mean - but I like it (probably because I convinced myself I had to!). I hated Transformers 2 the first time I watched it - but I forced myself to watch a few more times and it's not all bad. But Transformers 3... pah! I'm struggling to think of a worse movie ever!?

And I'm with you on Predators. It's not a patch on the original - but it did enough to pay homage to it to be good enough :thumbsup:

I gotcha. I keep on hearing the fans' comments about the movies and none of them have made me want to check any more of the franchise out. I liked the original 1980s cartoon, but I barely made it past the original series and the movie.

I like that it sort of turned things on the head. :)

Thanks - in fact it seems I'm not alone in thinking that Star Wars and Predator would be a great mash-up (I thought I was) - but you can find similar concepts on DA and elsewhere!

Actually I've been thinking on several ideas for mash-ups of the Predator with other movie concepts before, but not SW until now. Same goes for the Terminator, by the way.

I agree - the Predator has much more to show, the only thing needed is a chance to do it.
