Shogunate Wars

Star Wars is definitely one of the most successful Sci-Fi franchises in history despite george Lucas’ apparent attempt to sabotage his own creation – Episodes I, II, and III anyone? 😥

One of many indications of of Star Wars’ lasting success is the quantity and quality of fan art surrounding it, especially those that skillfully transpose Star Wars onto other genres.

Digital artist Clinton Felker provides us with a stunning series of Star Wars fan art depicting Boba Fett, Darth Vader, and a Stormtrooper as feudal Japanese warriors.

These are, to my mind, absolutely awesome images and I always thought that Darth Vader would have favored Sasaki Kojirō’s Ganryū school of swordsmanship, so I especially like that piece.
