I love humanity and am amazed by technology. That said, I have always been thrilled by the theme of monstrous aliens easily overpowering villainous humans equipped with sleek, advanced technology. This picture captures primal ferocity versus sophisticated oppression wonderfully.
Thanks, Andrea! I can only claim credit for the "texture" of the Wookie's fur. The shading textures are part of the special paper I used. Duoshade allowed me to "develope" the two different shading textures wherever I wanted. Magic!
This is great. It reminds me of some earlier Star Wars fiction, before the Empire Strikes Back came out even. There was a book called "Splinter of the Mind's Eye" by Allen Dean Foster where Chewbacca took a bunch of stormtroopers to the cleaners. Wookies were kind of scary.
I realize that I'm replying to a year-old comment here, but as an interesting anecdote "Splinter of the Mind's Eye" was actually written to be easily adaptable to film on a low budget, intended to be the sequel to the original Star Wars - but then Star Wars was enough of a success to be a bit more ambitious with the sequel, so we got "Empire Strikes Back" instead.
Sorry if you already knew this, it's just the sort of anecdote I find fascinating and thought maybe you might, too.
Yeah...I remember Splinter when it came out, but don't recall actually reading it. I've always been fascinated by the controlled toughness of Wookies, and their deep sense of honor. I think I was imagining what might happen if all that control broke down. It was fun!
