Palpatine and Royal Guards by LivioRamondelli Palpatine and Royal Guards by LivioRamondelli
Just for fun, a painting of the Emperor and his guards arriving on some newly conquered world.

Seriously, i have not seen the royal guards actually do anything in the entire star wars franchise either then being there. But the art actually makes them look menacing.

I suggest you read up on some books then or the storyline crimson empire in the comics, where they are actually shown doing something. they can be surprisingly badass if they want to.

And a message to the artist: Great picture. I like the realistic style of it that makes it look like promotional movie fanart. Especially the details in the robes amd the wrackage in the background. Gives the entire thing just the right atmosphere of dark power

The Imperial Guards are menacing, but I've always wondered about those weapons. How would the guards utilize them, I wonder?

 

I like the atmosphere you've created. You immediately picture a wet, dank sky spitting snow. It also raises questions. This place looks bleak. What is Palpatine's interest in it?

Nice! I'm always hoping people will have questions like that..sort of look for the story in these paintings.

Thanks! I added a bit of story further down in the comments--sort of a gut reaction plus some thought. I've always enjoyed contests where writers look at a photo or painting, then compose a story to go with it. It's interesting to see how many different results you get.
