Old drawing from 2009: For long, I had obsessed about Star Wars Imperial Stormtroopers. So as well, for long, I had thought of female stormtroopers –and the thought of female clontroopers was as well one of the many origins of my “shiks” artificial human/clones.
In this interest, more than once I looked in internet and galleries and such for “female stormtroopers”, “femtroopers” and other various terms, being common finding in these pics the stripperific variants of a female Imperial Stormptrooper.
But it was in 2009 when, looking for some Action figures of Star Wars online, I found a pack of stormtroopers, that included an action figure of a female stormtrooper.
At first I was: what? Is this a custom?
But then I learned these action figures where related to a Star Wars comic –based in an era about… what? 200 years after the battle of Yavin? Or it was 200 years after Endor? Well, the blowing up of one or other Death Star, anyway- where was featured a “New Empire”. And in this New Empire, for I guess either manpower shortage –or to show in Public Relations they are a different empire- the ranks in the Stormtroopers opened to Aliens… and women!
Now, due the amount of merchadising and derived artwork related to Star Wars I no longer can tell what is cannon from what it isn’t. But this comic –and the apparition of female stormtroopers in a more or less official Star Wars media- triggered in me a spur of drawings Stormtroopers of all kinds. Human male and female, but as well, of several Star Wars alien races (twi’lek, Gungan, etc, etc).
I have no idea where most of these are, but I found and scanned a couple of these 2009 drawings of Stormtroopers done in the corner of one of my notebooks, while on classes! XD
