Yoda vs Imperial Guards by Robert-Shane Yoda vs Imperial Guards by Robert-Shane
I wanted to draw the Emperor's Royal Guard (aka Imperial Guard aka Red Guard) - but I didn't just want to have them standing motionless like they do in the movies. So I've put them in battle with Yoda as my take on the scene in Revenge of the Sith when Yoda confronts the Emperor.

In the movie Yoda uses the Force and dispenses with the guards with a simple shrug... but here's what it might have looked like if he'd had to work just a little harder to deal with them.

This is an entirely original depiction of George Lucas's characters. I drew this in Photoshop using a Wacom pad. This is an optimized version of the original - which is 600dpi.

Hope you like!

Thanks very much - you clearly have very good taste in Star Wars art! :lol: and don't worry - there's no such thing as over-faving - it's always nice to know which pictures people like best! :thumbsup:

Awesome :D! Yoda is a one-man wrecking crew, but I love to see him fight enemies that are not as easy to kill as clones or those guards in the movie.

me too... it's no fun if the fight's over before it even gets started!

Congratulations ! However, I wonder if I prefer them dying after an honourable battle with the most powerful Jedi Master or alive after an humiliating wall-throwing ! When I saw it, at the movie, I didn't laughed, but the rest of the public did, which was... irritating because I always clearly prefered Imperial Army to Rebel Alliance !
But please, don't make them die stupidly, like, for example, make them electrocute each other with their pikes !

Thank you! I didn't laugh at that scene either! it was such a disappointment to me - as I always thought the Imperial Guards were the coolest characters. Oh well - at least in my picture they put up a fight (before losing). :lol:
