Stormtroopers vs Aliens by Robert-Shane Stormtroopers vs Aliens by Robert-Shane
This took me a really long time to draw... I thought I'd never get it done!

This is a 'companion' piece to my drawing of Darth Vader meeting an Alien queen. Perhaps this battle is what happened on board Vader's Star Destroyer immediately before he turned up to restore order!?


I wanted this piece to look claustrophobic and chaotic - to give a sense of the mayhem that's taking place - without resorting to drawing blood and guts everywhere! So I only depicted the characters in the picture... no background... no scenery.

I didn't want this to be one of those pieces where the center of the page is full detail while the edges are blurry or lacking in detail. There's nothing wrong with that approach - in fact it's the 'right' way to compose a piece that directs the viewer's eye. But for this one - I just wanted the page to be full - so that wherever you look - there's something happening.

My other Star Wars / Alien mash-up featured Darth Maul - so now I have a trilogy! I think that after all the time and effort this one took - it will probably be my last! (At least for a while.)


This is an original depiction of George Lucas's/Disney's and HR Giger's copyright characters. Drawn freehand in Photoshop using a Wacom pad - this is a low res version.

Well, I've always been a proponent of a battle royal between Boba Fett and the predator, so why not aliens and stormtroopers. Heck, there was already a published novel featuring stormtroopers and zombies, and this can only be considered a number of steps up from THAT shlock...
