SWGTCG: Re-animated Stormtrooper by ukitakumuki SWGTCG: Re-animated Stormtrooper by ukitakumuki
Now that Galaxies is officially defunct, I thought it safe to post some of my favourite illustrations here for posterity sake..!

Working on this franchise for close to 2 years really helped me grow as a creative and allowed me to explore many aspects of the craft-- its not often you get to play the role of illustrator, story-teller and designer within a single commission. It was truly rewarding in hindsight and more often that not, a very humbling experience when you witness the sheer quality and passion of other fellow creatives working on the same project, really inspires you to stretch yourself beyond the usual bounds!

I met an actual death trooper cosplayer at SDCC 2011 by chance when he stumbled (literally) past the IFS booth at artist alley, and I just had to give him a print of this piece. What was even cooler was that he returned to hand me some death trooper patches, challenge coins and similar DT paraphernalia~!!!

 Ugh! And I thought I hated them while they were alive!
Given it is such a big Galaxy, I don't see why some would complain about there being zombies. Of course there would be the walking dead lurking somewhere (or created by abominable Imperial science)!

 Fortunately, it isn't something a well placed thermal detonator can't take care of!

 Screw bullets! We need heavy blaster rifles and thermal detonators down here!!!

Did I say bullets? I meant to say a molecular deconstruction rifle.

I've read a book about zombie storm troopers. Is it actually accurate or just for fun?

the Rebels didn't seem to have any problems killing stormtroopers normally so I'm guessing if you shoot the helmet off, you're golden.

Lightsaber would work just fine. You don't even need any skill with it to fight zombies, just swing it.
