Star Wars: My Designs by UndefinedScott Star Wars: My Designs by UndefinedScott
My Designs of the Star Wars Characters in Episode 4: A New Hope sans Chewie.

Vader- I wanted him to look less like an opera villain.
Stormtrooper- I wanted them scary, like the elite troops of the Empire. Instead of 'oh look Stormtroopers' more of a 'holy bleeping bleep Stormtroopers! RUN!'
Luke- I decided to go with a suit ala Dune for moisture farmers. It would mark Luke as a country bumpkin even in Tattooine but Luke rebels as much as he can by not wearing the full face mask and growing out his hair to a shaggy length.
Ben Kenobi- A warrior in hiding is still a warrior. I wanted to make him still look formidable but older. He hangs out in ports like Mos Isley so he'd need to look tough
Han- Not really much of a change. Just gave him a blood-stripe on his jacket too.

You should've closed bens jacket. It screams Jedi and as a sith id be obligated to strike him down.

Thanks.

I've been sitting here trying to figure out how to say that in a funny way but it just comes out sounding indignant and jerky.

So... Thanks :)

These are fantastic. I think Luke' attire looks a little silly, (poofy shoulders) but maybe that's just me. I love the new looks for Obi-Wan and the stormtroopers. While I will always cherish Vader's classic look, I must admit your version is totally in keeping with the spirit of the character. :thumbsup:

Thank you. I'm not completely happy with Luke but I think at the time I was going for something that looked like it was on top of the body-suit and could easily be removed.

I really like this! What gave you the idea to redesign these characters?

Thanks for the comment. Well, you see I was going through a crisis of inspiration and... ok, I can't take myself seriously to keep that up. I just wanted something fun to work on that wasn't superheroes. You can only re-design Superman so many times before it gets dull. ( 3 by my count :P )

I loved Star Wars as a kid and I love it enough to enjoy the prequels every now and then.

I can't think of any better reason to do something then, "for the hell of it!" Still, bravo on the designs, I like Vader and Han in particular but they're all cool.
