Arakyd AZ-Series Battle Droid by SteveArgyle Arakyd AZ-Series Battle Droid by SteveArgyle
My very first Star Wars invention. All the artwork up until now has been based on existing characters and technology. Which is part of the fun of Star Wars. To be creative with cannonical characters and tech; to bring something new while staying true to the original.

But I was very excited to get a chance to make up a droid. This particular little fella had only a brief description in one of the novels. So there was alot I could do within the framework of that description. (Which was basically: four legs, a cannon, and a pincer arm.)

It was difficult to resist the temptation to make it look like a Megaman villain. "Crabman," or "Canopenersquidman," or somesuch.

I still sometimes listen to Megaman remixes while I work...

Looks very similar to one of the spider-like droids found in the old rataka (i think thats right) ruins on Dantooine in SW KOTOR. excellent job again Mr. Argyle
