Star Wars: A New Despair by Lord-Of-The-Guns Star Wars: A New Despair by Lord-Of-The-Guns
My (very) early entry for =c2usaf2004's Star Wars "What If?" contest. I decided to do "what if Darth Maul had slain Obi Wan at Naboo?" The image follows what I think might have happened if that were the case . . .
- Obi Wan and Padme are both killed during the Battle of Naboo.
- Without Obi Wan to teach him, Anakin returns to his mother on Tatooine.
- Count Dooku is slain by Maul.
- Darth Maul assumes the mantle of Dark Lord of the Sith when he kills Darth Sidious.
- The Republic and Jedi Council defeat the Confederacy.
- Maul goes into hiding in the Tatooine dune sea.
- A young Skywalker encounters Maul on Tatooine.

So, yeah. Enjoy.

Do you think you could do another "What if?" This time, in Episode II?

Probably not - I had this one in my head for a while and only drew it for the competition. Sorry!

Very nice. Fave, if only because I'm in the middle of doing a Dooku vs. Maul fanfic, and that part of this pic is quite striking. Impressive work. I hope you don't mind me commenting on this old thing. :)

If Sidious and Dooku are dead there wouldn't be any confederacy.

Nice layout and color work. My only sticky point is that Maul seems to have no arms past the elbows in the last scene?

AHA! I still think the pose would look more menacing (and Maul's all about menacing) if they were outstreched, a touch more dynamic and all ... But please don't get me wrong, it's a minor detail I noticed in an otherwise excellent illustration :)
