CHALLENGE 17 Facebook Brainstorm Group

 Vader with his induction Saber/Katana
Storm Trooper

Scout Trooper (Endor Trooper) 

 And the sketches for the initial ideas.

 Re-Design Starwars Vader and Storm Troppers

And for any one interested what the inspiration was and how I thought about it.

Long ago in a land far, far away...

I wanted to do a historical take. But not the regular Samurai Star Wars take. Those are great, but I wanted to play with my imagination more then just set them in feudal Japan.
I imagined how would costumes look in a ww1 like setting level of technology. For the Star Wars story.
If History had taken a different turn?
If samurai aesthetic would have advance to the wars of the early 20th century?
How would this affect armor and there weapons?
What if the Matchlock/Flintlock guns had progressed to be on par if not superior to ww1 era guns?
And how would a Saber/Katana work with a plausible tech that could have been developed in that time period? With the same benefits that the light sabers have in the source material?
Like I said I had a lot of fun with this, perhaps too much fun? It was fascinating to research the history of Japan. As well as induction technology, and Matchlock/Flintlock's. It was a fun rabbit hole to follow.

I'll post hi-res versions at my art station.


Also if interested the Ref I used for this Project"
