Star Wars Imperial Drone Superweapon Contest Entry by AdamKop Star Wars Imperial Drone Superweapon Contest Entry by AdamKop
Contest entry for :

Bi-weekly Art Jam 4 - Rejected Superweapon Ideas!Third Bi-weekly Art Jam is complete.  Now for the fourth Bi-weekly Art Jam!  

I'm slightly surprised there were not more entries for the OC Art Jam, but no biggie, that's one of those Jams that can come around and be used again.  ^_^

So, onto the next bi-weekly Art Jam!  This one is Rejected Superweapon Ideas!  Perhaps the Sith Empire looked into building a Ugnaught Launcher, but turned it down.  Maybe the Galactic Empire looked into a design for a donut shaped space station instead of a solid sphere.  What about the Rebellion looking into Ewok Glide Drop bombs (the Empir

A weapon made after the destruction of the first Death Star. Vader decided to make something smaller to aid the Imperial Star Destroyers. The idea was abandoned after they proved to be too expensive to protect with a lot of ships due to their relatively small size and no self-defense systems.

COMMISIONS (2D & 3D work)Hello, you arrived at my Commisions page :)
If you are interested in getting a CGI image created for you, please continue to the section you are interested in. There are three sections:
Section A for all kinds of 2D images
Section B for various 3D renders
Section C for blueprints and line art

I do all kinds of art and I'm opened to different styles (vector drawings of a Star Wars ship, 3D render of a Stargate vehicle, blueprint for a Dune tank and of course every kind  of original universe objects and scenes) so don't be afraid to ask for what you want.
You can also check examples of my commisioned work and private gallery works on the

this one is interesting the rounded engine exhaust with a cone coming out like a jet engine only inverted and those vents from the 4 fin like body parts look like its either for engine vents or vents from the super weapon system hard to tell which. those black squares 2 on each side looks to be solar power pannels which is common place in later vehicles in the star wars universe on the tie fighters, wings. also on the weapon point is like the death stars super weapon only reverse is a cool effect. I like the triangle shape that breaks into a quad finned tail for the over all body of the weapon or drone as you put it. imagine a feild of these things that'd be truly evil to thing about. the best part is the blur motion's of the guardian fighters in the background and a enemy fighter trying to stop this thing in the forground is a great way to show action in this shot. I also think the best part is the light blur from the blue glow from the engine and the bright green glow from the tip of the weapon shoing its power. over all very impressive.

this would be interesting if used in a manner similar to the xindi probe from enterprise, jump in, open fire before the defenders figure out what's up, if lucky jump back out. it's an excellent original design, love it.

This is brilliant and sensible - a compact planet damager! Oh and I still think your TIEs are way better - and I am a fan of them and Mr MrQuarrie :D

Thanks :) Now that I think about it, it does look like a Tholian ship :D I guess it's one of those cases when I don't think about following a certain ship but I did :P
