These are the storm troopers who guard the most elite echelons of the Imperials. These soilders are from all over the army but most are from Vader's Fist, the 501st who took part in jedi hunt and destroy missions. Their experiences against jedi are an invauable part of their station and many have been rebuilt or augmented as a result of these experiences.

Oh no, I totally forgot about the timelimit, guess I'm out of practice, or getting old. So I went a bit over it 1:15h.
He's part of some elite grenade-throwing unit or something.

Awe crap. I read the No Time Limit on the Sith thread and thought it was the same for this one...

05 May 2007, 12:06 PM
A little under 60min. PS + Wacom. Was looking for something to practice blocking in values, so this worked out well. Was fun too.

05 May 2007, 03:18 PM
i did not want to loose the SW mood.

50 min, photoshop + wacom

05 May 2007, 02:13 AM
Well, since I blew it on the time limit on the first submission, I created this one tonight.

Photoshop using a Wacom - total time: 1hour.

05 May 2007, 08:25 AM
maximum time 1hr created in photoshop cs2+ wacom.

05 May 2007, 12:07 PM
I was looking for something to practice blocking values on, so this worked out well

1hr PS + Wacom

Apparantly I still havn't mastered the "inserting image" thing.

I really enjoy your concepts. Both are very clean and well developed ideas, good posture and good dynamic lighting. Very well done. In both paintings, and this may be the armor, the torso areas are oddly shaped and under developed, again you have only an hour but the shape feels bulky and undefined. Anyway look forward to more posts!

hr and 20
I gave this one the stormtrooper mask..

05 May 2007, 04:57 PM
SuperMuscle - that's awesome! It took me a minute to find the storm trooper helmet. XD

Here's mine - Photoshop, about forty, forty-five minutes. It sort of looks like he's wearing a welder's mask. D:

05 May 2007, 12:20 PM

These Special Navy Troopers are the imperials finest

PS/wacom 40min...

05 May 2007, 08:34 AM
Had fun with this topic :D

PS/wacom, 60 minutes

1 hour painter and photoshop.

I started one but didnt save, and after 30 mins, painter pooped out on me! aargh. THis is the 2nd attempt.

I was thinking about how the part 1-3 had to transition from a new style of designs to the retro-ish style of the designs in star wars new hope. Made me wonder if I could get some sort of ancient orld feeling to a suit (helmet). Dunno if it worked but it was fun to do. :)

60 min, photoshop

This is my first attempt at the daily sketches, and I'm still learning to use my wacom. I've been meaning to submit sketches for a while, and realized that it is Star Wars week, so I had to try one or two. The troop doesn't look too intimidating, but I thought I'd lighten up the armour a bit to make him more agile.

For this topic I decided to do a non-lethal peace loving trooper girl, so I didn't include weapons or gun details. 6-7 hours for the finished version (second one is the 60 min. sketch snapshot) in openCanvas, Manga Studio, and Photoshop.
