Samurai Jack as a Jedi, ‘nother request. I’ll spill some colour over this shit soon I guess
1,000 times, yes.
Cross stitch inspiration.
BTS | Some old friends of Yoda puppeteer and voice actor Frank Oz seems to have come for a visit on the set of The Empire Strikes Back.
Some assorted Jedi and sketches from my Star Wars: 1999 project. Couple notes about Jedi in my version of the prequels: there is no Jedi Order or really even a recognizable council, nor do they wear robe uniforms and all carry lightsabers as they do in Lucas’s prequels. They’re a bit more diverse, a little more like a cross between wandering samurai and the Knights Templar, with enclaves and bases spread throughout the galaxy.
These Jedi, from left to right:
- Ordok is a master swordsman with 5 eyes all the way around his head. He can’t breath regular “human” atmospheres, forcing him to wear a helmet reminiscent of a Japanese monk basket-hat thing.
- Califa is a former Devaronian slave who specializes in unorthodox weaponry. Similar to how real-life Samurai used mostly other weapons in battle with swords mostly being ceremonial, Califa and some other Jedi use more modern weapons in battle.
- Kiran is a pacifist Jedi with cybernetic eyes. He’s long since refused to carry a weapon, though he will not say what caused this change of heart. His greatest skill is the ability to dismantle a blaster with the Force, making him a valuable asset in a fight.
- Zin is a cunning old woman who has been in more battles than she can remember. While a legendary force for justice in the Republic, Master Zin has gotten somewhat senile and deranged as she becomes ever more obsessed with rooting out “secret enemies.”
- Duke Drago is a rare aristocrat trained as a Jedi. He has taken it upon himself to repair the historically rocky relationship between the Republic and the Jedi, though the rogue antics of some Jedi (like Obi-Wan Kenobi) have stifled this project.
- Obi-Wan Kenobi, the hero of our tale, is a talented Jedi Knight trained by the legendary and elusive Yoda, famous destroyer of the ancient Sith. Kenobi has become disillusioned with the incompetence of the Republic and has decided to wage a one-man war against the aggressors of the Clone Wars, a conflict that most Jedi have not openly participated in. Kenobi’s attire is a combination of Clint Eastwood-esque cowboy clothing covering ancient Jedi armor, a gift from his estranged master.
- Vima is Kenobi’s young apprentice and voice of reason. While she has recently constructed a lightsaber of her own (a monumental undertaking), her master is hesitant to let her into battle. Instead, Vima spends most of her time investigating the Outer Rim for outside threats.
I feel that at least some of this is relevant to animateher’s interests.
