Star Wars meets Marvel - Spider Droid by Robert-Shane Star Wars meets Marvel - Spider Droid by Robert-Shane
A while ago I posted three illustrations merging Star Wars and Marvel characters and now that it's been confirmed that Star Wars comics will once again be created by Marvel, I thought the time was right to create a second 'trilogy' of mash-up concepts. 

For this one, I've mixed Marvel's Amazing Spider-Man with a Battle Droid from the Star Wars prequel trilogy. 

This is a low-res version of the original which was drawn by me in Photoshop using a Wacom pad. 

Star Wars was created by George Lucas; Spider-Man was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Star Wars and Marvel, and the respective characters are copyright of Disney. This is fan art and isn't available for sale or reproduction.

What I really like about the art is how you implemented the cut in the Battle Droid's "eyes", giving Spider-Droid's eyes a very insect-like look that really fits.

Shouldn't this be a commando Droid instead of a regular battle Droid. Still looks awesome though.

Hmm... a Jedi would have been better, as their reflexes are similar to Spider-Man's.  Still, I like the pose.

Sky Spider?  As in Luke Skywalker?  Or Spider Walker?  Or Solo Spider?  Or Spider Princess (as in Leia)?  Just offering random suggestions.

... well they all sound like they could make interesting characters. :thumbsup:
I suppose though - with Spider-man his iconic look includes the mask - so I think it works well as the droid mash-up because I was able to adapt the look of the standard battle droid so that this character had elements of both. If I'd done, for example, a mash-up with Luke Skywalker I would have had to have done him without a mask to show who it was - and then some of that iconic look is lost. Not to say it would be impossible - just trying to explain some of the 'creative' decisions I consider when trying to come up with these ideas.

Mmm... ok.  Yup.  Those are good decisions when you explain it.  I can see the reasoning behind it all now.  I think.

When I was first looking at this, I was thinking it was a paper modle or something.  The shadows are real good and life like.
Not sure if it gives him much of an advantage or not, since some droids seemed a bit duns.

Thanks - and I never really like the Battle Droids - they're far too stupid and pointless. But I did think there was something comical about mixing one with Spider-Man because they seem like such opposites!

this design is awesome! if you're going to mash any other characters, may i suggest Bobba Fett mixed with Deadpool and Wolverine mixed with Darth Maul?

I have a feeling that I've exhausted my love for these mash-ups with these three (at least for now) - although I have actually done some sketches for a Maul/Wolverine mash-up - so we're thinking along he same lines there. The only thing is that although it sounds great - I couldn't get it to look any good so made this one instead!
