Stormtrooper by Robert-Shane Stormtrooper by Robert-Shane
Here's my drawing of the Empire's finest doing what they do best - getting shot at!

This is from the opening scene of the original Star Wars movie - but I've created a new 'camera' angle, which I imagine is the view from a fallen Trooper - watching his buddies fight on (or not).

This is an entirely original depiction - drawn first with old-fashioned pencil on paper, then scanned and colored using a Wacom tablet in Photoshop.

I love drawing Stormtroopers. Are there any jobs that involve drawing Stormtroopers all day? I'd like to apply! :)

Stormtroopers are expert sharpshooters.

Thanks very much Robert - very kind of you (and sorry for taking so long to say so). I did this one a while ago and sadly, I can't help but see faults in it now! Perhaps time to think of an updated version that doesn't bug me as much! Hold up... I just realized as I type this... that must have been exactly the thought process that George Lucas went through when he decided to do the Special Editions! (hope it's not too presumptuous of me to dare to compare myself with the great man!) ;)

Its all good man! :)

I was thinking it would be cool to have a piece that contrasted the stormtrooper piece. The ARC troopers would look cool pulling back one of their own whereas the stormtroopers just keep pushing over the fallen.

Any of the legions of more character/ customization that the armor of standard stormtroopers. It'd be cool to see that depicted..the hear and character they had prior to the execution of Jedi.

hmm... that's a very interesting idea - and well described. especially the way you've contrasted their character with that of the Stormtroopers. It's put the start of an idea in my head and it does seem like a piece I'd like to do as I haven't drawn any ARC troopers. I can't promise anything - time's always the enemy when it comes to getting ideas drawn. But thanks for the suggestion and keep 'em peeled for if/when I do this. :thumbsup:

Have you ever noticed in the boarding of the rebel blockade runner is one of three moments stormtroopers are shooting straight on screen in the movies.

Sorry for the slow reply - I missed this message somehow! But I'm intrigued to find out when were the other two times when stormtroopers were shooting straight - I thought they ALWAYS missed! :)

Ah yes - of course - thanks for the reminder! I can still remember being amazed when I first saw R2 getting shot in that scene. It was like "hold on - how'd that happen - Stormtroopers never hit anything!" :lol:

Yes, you're right, that's a thing I've always hated in Star Wars Movies, Games and Comics : the Stormtroopers are shot more often than they shoot ! And unfortunately more often, they get killed with violent death ! And it really puts me in anger, sometimes !
But this picture has something... heroic ! "Stormtrooper's last stand" could be a title ! Congratulations, however !

Thanks very much. You've pointed out what I'd hoped to show with this picture... that no matter how bad the situation is and how likely he is to be killed because of poor equipment and training - a Stormtrooper will still go down fighting!

Haha, yes, they are definitely good at getting shot. :D

I love the angle you chose for this scene. Very nicely colored, too (I would give my life to become that good one day..).

And you love drawing Stormtroopers, you say? I'm trying one at the moment. :XD: It's fun, but it's also rather hard for me. :D

I do hope you stick with your Stormtrooper drawing. If it helps... I always draw the black 'browline' above their eyes first - as this gives you a guide for the width of the head and also where the other features are placed. The eyes are just triangles with curved edges that are placed right below the browline - and the line of the nose band just follows the line created by the bottom of the eyes.. and so on. For their body - try to think of each limb as a series of cylinders - as that's basically how their armour is constructed.
I hope that's of some use! :)
