Just an Artist who connects with the clone troopers of the Clone Wars. I also have my darkside the INSIDERS.

My Art-style is Called HYBRID. It uses a variety of materials concepts and theories together to make unique ideas on characters or concepts. My major set of materials is mixed media usually color pencils and pens. Most of my techniques are self-taught. With refinement of the processes coming from college course currently being undertaken.

I am a person who has interests in science, history, technology, religion, philosophy, politics, engineering, biology, genetics, and writing. I have interesting concepts for stories, redesigns of universes, game-political-strategy-social-quantum light travel theory, and has a very quick learning curve for a person. Rapidly and frighteningly assimilating information and then cross pollinating it with information already in my brain. Is something of a walking encyclopedia of sorts.

I view the world like Leonardo da Vinci, minus the dsylexia and plus the literal walking around in circles when I have an idea. My concept of art, technology, and ideas is practical and sometimes a little eccentric, but everything is interconnected to me.

Feel free to ask for ideas or information.

[as of this date I will attempt to set up a network for being able to support commissions.]
Interests
I waited a full week after the release of Star Wars: Rogue One.

I listened to some of the reviews and critics, and they were kind of mixed. One of which noted that Rogue One is one of the best Sci-Fi War Movies to date. 

I have to agree with that assessment. Its a brilliant "Star Wars" rendition of a war movie in the Classic stream. I mean did anyone notice how professional the actors acted in the battle scenes? Not something you see in the originals, barring The Empire Strikes Back because in that movie, the actual Norwegian Army was the actors for the Hoth Battle scenes! 

But here is where Rogue One hits the proverbial wall, Canon

I understand Disney caught flak for calling all Expanded Universe materials non-canon after 40 years of work on the Universe. Because.
  1. Legal Issues: Disney wanted to cancel all the outstanding legal agreements and royalty agreements of the original Lucas run Star Wars. 
  2. Methodology Change: I remember going to the Star Wars Celebration in person, I went to the artistic evaluation room to see the ILM staff. I put this picture up. [Granted I was honest saying I wasn't the best artist, but was willing to keep going.]And one of the ILM guys said this: "We are about image, not Story." And that tipped me off to what was coming down the pike. So Disney is about Image not Story. Images can be sold over and over again, it very hard to sell a story. 
  3. The Star Wars Civil War: when George Lucas sold off Star Wars, he was also doing it; to get rid of a rather problematic issue that cropped up since Episode III. Part directly caused by George Lucas wanting to innovate and make new materials, but also indirectly by him not being involved more aggressively in universe canon decisions. Hence if one is to read recent materials there is alot of copy paste materials from other series; if not no serious attempt to research the back story of characters.
  • The Timothy Zahn and Karen Traviss personality feud war. Karen kills off Mara Jade to spite Timothy who was in the beginning stages of writing a book on her and her backstory. Caused the first major fan base rift.  
  • The Mandalorian Debacle. In the new 3D The Clone Wars the Mandalorians with a really old and very dark, rough backstory, Dave Filoni and company make the Mandalorians into Pacifists. Probably as a direct snub to Karen Traviss and the fanbase around the Mandalorians. [At the Star Wars Celebration: EP7- Dave Filoni actually admits to the fact that no one on the Clone Wars team or in ILM did any research into the Star Wars Expanded Universe materials. ] [You would think someone who works on Star Wars would be a student of its Universe; but remember its Image Not Story. ]
  • Yuzong Vong War PTSD. Alot of Star Wars writers and directors now excuse their actions to the whole Yuzong Vong War arc, and how "dark" it got. Looks at The Old Republic Arc, darkness you say? 
Sadly to say this all caused huge splits among the fan/follower base; and between the old guard and newer millennials.
Many of which have never read a Star Wars Book, much less a comic from the earlier era. 

Now back to Rogue One.

It doesn't even follow the in movie canon
Remember Episode IV? [That all the new Star Wars persons slobber over, and lead to the insanity of Episode VII?]
  • Darth Vader gets Princess Leia and says. "You have Received Transmissions." in Rogue One we have the Star Wars Floppy Disk. If I remember correctly, the transmissions were only put on a disk and put inside R2D2 once the Tantive IV was captured in the opening of Ep IV. Also in all the video games and books written on the Death Star and around it. Various forces steal the plans and re-direct transmissions to Tantive IV. 
  • The main character who steals the Death Star plans is Kyle Katarn, with his copilot Jan Ors[funny sounds like Jen Orso. Very sneaky Disney] and then the subsequent galactic chase to intercept and re-capture the plans ending with Episode IV. All of this happens just before Episode IV. Games, Books, Comics [ignored.]
  • Death Star Designer definitely not white cape. Tol Sivron, Qwi Xux, Bevel Lemelisk [the actual designer engineer.] have that honor. Tarkin being the "driver." So this new character is just junk added in. [Another strike against Disney and their inability to get it right.] 
  • Death Troopers -the black bodyguards. In a slap to in canon Shadow Troopers/ Blackhole Stormtroopers, Nova Troopers/ and Storm Commandos we get some black "Stormtrooper Special Forces." The naming is also a slap, Death Troopers the book is about Star Wars Universe zombie plague ridden Star Destroyer drifting in space. Which is relatively common in Star Wars universe. Hive Viruses not withstanding. [Read Heir to the Empire.] So to rip off a book name for a character is just wrong.
  • Princess Leia being in the battle, wasn't Princess Leia on a "Diplomatic Mission" when Darth Vader captures her in Episode IV? Completely ignored in R.O. Its also a bit of videogame nod in from the Force Unleashed series. [Which isn't totally in canon anyways.]
  • The TIE fighter variants are all wrong. Especially with that there is the info on the TIE family like this. 
  • Also note this above. Look at the Rogue Shadow? Naming over usage much Disney? 
  • Rogue One is also a naming nightmare. Rogue One is also the name for leading craft of Rogue Squadron. [Is this movie about them, nope; which it should.] [Besides the fact that Kyle Katarn could have had a movie, or the Rebel Alliance Infilitrators and SpecForce]Image result for Rebel Special Forces
  • Death Star. Oy Death Star. "Does Fully Operational" mean anything in Episode IV? Heck we are not even tallying Rebel planets, Talk about Red v Red issues. Even the low setting firing suspiciously looks like Star Trek effects oddly enough from the first reboot movie. If not its nostalgia Cold War Nuke fest visuals. 
  • The Alderaan Connection. Both characters are added in, when they would have been not directly involved in the conflict of R.O. because they had to stay squeaky clean for the Imperials. Especially when they mention the Imperial Senate. 
  • The Rebel Fleet smacks head over and over again. We never see the Rebel fleet until The Empire Strikes Back. Why? The Rebel Alliance was very scattered like a terrorist cell system. Scattered so the huge Imperial Fleet wouldn't get them in one go. Only In Return of the Jedi, does the fleet come together to attack Death Star II on Endor. 
  • Admiral Ackbar oddly enough would have been a perfect VIP to rescue, because around the time of R.O. he is a slave of Tarkin, and is rescued. So he knows Tarkins doctrine and systems. [Another track ignored.] 
But, what really rankled me was all of the humor, Disney really forces humor into the Star Wars movies. I remember watching Star Wars and never having someone laugh. Even with private part showing. That solemn almost respectful silence to Star Wars has been lost. Its annoying to watch any new Star Wars and hearing some Comedy Central laugh fest in the theatre. We as fans/followers are to make jokes after the fact, not laugh at them in movie. 

"These aren't the droids you looking for." is a good example of this. No one laughs at this line in the movie; but we use it outside the movie to joke about things. And we laugh there. Star Wars comedy is to be laughed at or about after the fact outside of the movie, not inside. Star Wars is not a comedy flick.

I know it may seem a little overboard in pointage...but eh. A clone trooper has got to do what a clone has to do.

Feeling generous? Okay.
At least I won't my "More Please" "Alms for the Poor." Impressions...and annoy people.

INSIDER Armored Beach Assault
INSIDER Panzer Variants showing off the very rarely seen breather pack, that converts sea water into oxygen for the crews and their tank engines. This allows INSIDER Panzers to be deployed beneath the waves and crawl on the beach. 

Also in the background are INSIDER Bullshark submerisable hover assault craft. 

INSIDER assaults like this make supremely difficult to defense maritime objectives from attack.

INSIDER Panzermensch MK IV
INSIDER Panzermensch are extremely rare in use, but when they are used, they can turn the tide of battle across continents. 

This variant is uniquely terrifying, since it is one of the first cases of INSIDER use of "Kinetic Gel" armor. An almost mythical armor type that allows Panzermensch to absorb up to a rail gun in kinetic strike effect. But it has been reported it has ablative anti-energetic weapon capabilities as well. Laser Weapons have little to no effect on it. 

Only the most Elite INSIDER operators get access to a Panzermensch. 

It is extremely dangerous, if detected-immediate defensive actions and tactical response is necessary.

INSIDER Barracuda MK II
INSIDERS later modified the Barracuda Ekranoplane Fighter with technologies from Nauti-craft, Ghost, and Juliet-Marine for high maneuverability on the high seas. Combining these advantages together with the already advanced Ekranoplane Ground Effect systems. Allowed the already formidable Barracuda squadrons to engage enemies in ways that normal ships can not counter attack. Modern military forces have expressed sheer frustration in countering even small teams of Barracuda Mk II Ekranoplane Fighters. They hit hard and fast, and don't leave much window of time to engage them.

INSIDERS typical tactics are long range missile strikes, followed up with a mid range homing torpedo launch, and close range gun engagments if necessary. National Militaries like the Iranian Republic Guard Navy, who specialize in swarm tactics have found the Barracuda to be the most terrifying opponent. Like its name sake the Barracuda is a predator to all small and large.
