Star Wars Unseen Scenes - Episode 6 by Robert-Shane Star Wars Unseen Scenes - Episode 6 by Robert-Shane
Most of my artwork I post here is done in 'portrait' style because I'd really like to draw a Star Wars comic cover one day! But I thought I should try to demonstrate that I can also create 'landscape' scenes too - so I've put together a series of three pictures depicting scenes that 'sort of' happened in the original Star Wars trilogy.

There was a scene filmed, but not completed, for Return of the Jedi (apparently as a joke) - showing the Imperial Guard using their force pikes to execute Moff Jerjerrod for slacking with his job of building the second Death Star.  I thought that scene, if it had been used, could have actually been important in demonstrating Darth Vader's wavering devotion to his Emperor. The way I imagine it - the Emperor orders his guards to execute the hapless Moff - but Vader actually protests - and tries to remind the Emperor that this was a loyal soldier who delivered a functional Death Star. I think this would be consistent with Vader's old appreciation, as Anakin, for his troops - and would start to sow the seeds for his eventual redemption at the end of the movie!

This is an original depiction of characters created by George Lucas. It was drawn in Photoshop using a Wacom pad. Disney owns the copyright to Star Wars and its characters and this image is fan art that isn't for sale or reproduction.

Vader was correct about his master in terms of forgiveness.

Any additional scene that showed off the Imperial Guards would be good. Great painting.

I agree - they may have only been glimpsed when they first appeared in Return of the Jedi - but I always thought they were one of the coolest designs.

Would have been a great scene to demonstrate the Emperor's complete contempt of anyone but himself but I find it hard to see Vader being too emotional about the death of an Imperial as he was directly and indirectly responsible for more than a few himself.

I definitely know what you mean - but, on the other hand, by the end of the movie he has completely changed and reverted to his old 'good self'. I always remember when I first saw Return of the Jedi and the scene when Vader goes down to Endor to confront Luke - I thought Luke was finished! But no - instead Vader's having this nice father/son chat with him and I wondered 'how' did Vader manage to change so completely, so quickly. Arguably he began to soften as soon as he encountered Luke in A New Hope - but even in Empire Strikes Back he was taking out Imperials for the slightest mis-step and only seemed to want to use Luke for his own ends. So his redemption in Jedi still seemed somewhat 'sudden'.
