The Empire by Robert-Shane The Empire by Robert-Shane
I've always loved drawing Star Wars and have already posted some of my pictures:

Star Wars has been around a long time now - so I really don't get anything from seeing images that copy stills from the movies or don't add any originality. So I always try to paint something that you haven't seen before - and with this one I've attempted to mix the epic 'movie poster' look with the feel of a super-hero team cover.

I really went all-out with this piece and it took a very long time to complete. I painted it at a very high resolution (it's a 330mb PSD file) but I dramatically reduced it here to make it quicker to load.

Hope you like!

Another excellent piece! Love the fading of the Vader helmet into the stars, just like the classic Empire Strikes Back promotional material.

Thanks again! Yep - I grew up with that stuff so I dare say I was influenced and inspired by it. Plus it just 'works' as a concept with the black of his helmet fading into the limitless black of space.

This really gives off a feeling of power and incredible ruthlessness that is all too often associated with the Empire, but it does it in a new and refreshing way. Nicely done. :)

I definitely prefer the original Stormtrooper costume - from the 'New Hope' movie. Can you believe that design is now 35 years old!? But it still looks futuristic... now that's a classic!!!

35 ?????!!! I even did not think about it!! I am confident that it will last for another 35=))))))))))))
