Star Wars Zombie Stormtroopers by Robert-Shane Star Wars Zombie Stormtroopers by Robert-Shane
Don't be afraid - no actual Stormtroopers were harmed in the making of this picture!

I was contacted by :iconlodgeboy: - who asked whether I'd be interested in drawing a picture for his Left 4 Dead 2 Mod which he's calling ZombieTroopers. He said it would be based on the book Deadtroopers and feature Boba Fett, Aurra Sing, IG-88 and Bossk - all battling some Zombie Stormtroopers in a destroyed city that looks like Corusant.
(Find out more at: [link] )

I liked the idea very much (I like drawing Stormtroopers - even if they are all ickey and bitey) - so I took the brief and turned out what you see here!

I originally drew this in pencil, then scanned it and coloured it in Photoshop using a Wacom tablet. This is a web-optimised version of the image (it is a 100mb bitmap at 600dpi!)

Hope you like it... and please don't have nightmares!

Nice art, there is also a whole book out there about this theme. Star Wars Death Troopers i think it was named. It was a very creppy book.

I didn't come up with the concept of the Death Troopers - but I sure enjoyed drawing them! :)

They've got IG-88B (or is it D?) with them, so he's already got contamination/decontamination things that could easily wipe the death troopers out no problem. Probably why the only one who's nervous is Bossk.

?you got me - sorry I don't know if it's IG-88B or D - I just drew it intending it to be the version seen in Empire.

Eh, it's probably D. B has a lot more spokes and odd things on his head.

I'm a retired Star Wars nerd. The memories fade slowly.

Cool - yes. Thanks for taking the trouble to ask Connor - but please do make sure to credit me and you mustn't use my art in any commercial way.

I'd love to see Battlefront 3 (I played the other two to death) - I don't think it'll happen now - but I guess that's what your campaign's for! Good luck! :)

Wow ! Frightening and excellent ! You seem to have dispositions for survival-horror and science-fiction painting !
This one also reminds me Resident Evil, that I assume you appreciate too !

Sure! 1) It's Star Wars. 2) It's got zombies. 3) I love when someone makes a sort of crossover where something happens in a mythos that isn't at all expected there. Maybe this actually happens somewhere, I'm not a super hardcore SW fan, but I've never thought about it. I also enjoy that it's bounty hunters doing to surviving here - not what you would typically consider as the "good guys". Makes them more nasty I think. Great piece!

But why would they go after IG-88??
and if I were Boba...my exact plan of action is this...
1) Jetpack to high ground/saftey
2) laugh at comrads down below as I call in Slave I
3) Head to safe distance
4) Seismic charges galore
