Star Wars Flavored Bubblegum
Here is my latest rendering for a Star Wars droid art competition:
Imperial R2 Unit - BubbleGum by ~SimonBreeze on deviantART
The competition was to simply create an image of a Star Wars droid, however it had to be an Imperial droid from the original saga. The obvious one was an Imperial Probe Droid from the Empire Strikes Back. I figured that it was highly likely that would be a very common choice. Then I remembered seeing some very cool looking black and orange coloured Imperial R2 units in some behind the scenes photos from the Return of the Jedi film in an old Star Wars book.
Why the bubblegum card?
I remember collecting the dammed things back when I was a kid in the 70's when the first film came out. I can even remember the rubbish pink bubblegum sticks that came with them that the flavor lasted about two chews of the brittle stuff. So I have always had a good nostalgic feeling towards them and more importantly the image need something to finish it off. The droid alone on a white background looked, well, odd!
