Clone Trooper A-53 Solus'kad by Blayaden Clone Trooper A-53 Solus'kad by Blayaden
This is my fan-made clone trooper in his phase II armor. The name is Mandalorian- "solus" means "lonely" or "alone" and "kad" stands for "blade or knife"

He's an alpha class ARC Trooper whose specialty is slicing, data intel, and long ranged combat- preferably a modified Westar M-5 (ARC Rifle) with an extended barrel and enheanced sight. He has blades in his wrist gauntlets like Republic Commandos, as well as a wrist mounted vibroblade for defensive purposes.

Here's a sketch with more information for those who are curious. [link]

I've been toying around with his design for years. I decided to upload him because of the contest that joehoganart is having.

This is my "special" trooper that I'm allowed to submit. A standard trooper design will be uploaded shortly.

Solus was made by me-
Star Wars is Lucasfilms

The kama, cloak, bandolier and armor are evocative of the Titans from Destiny. A recipe for awesome.

Never played Destiny, but I've heard a lot of good things.  I just combined a lot of my favorite features from ARC/Clone Commander armor.  Blue and yellow has also been kinda my thing.  Its one of the reasons I like Harrison's Gundam F91 so much! ^^

For me it's the design and accessories on the outside of the armor more so than the secondary colors. I haven't played destiny either.

I drew it on paper with pencil and ink and scanned it onto my computer, colored it in SAI, and used Gimp for the shadows and highlights.

"Elite" Clones like ARCs and Clone Commanders have access to a lot of equipment when they made the transition to Phase II.

I also have a thing with cloaks. Cloaks are cool. (And blast resistant due to the material! :D)

the cloak does make him more of a badass

Its sorta his trademark- his Mandalorian armor also has a cloak.

Looks like he's right out of the Dark Horse comic series.

Thats quite a compliment! Thank you! ^^;

Yeah, I based a lot of his equipment on the ARC Troopers from the Dark Horse comics. I really like that pauldron/ammo pouch that drapes on the shoulders.

well it looks badass, keep up the good work. Any chance of you drawing an Imperial Guard or a Scout Trooper? maybe a bit customized?

Scout Trooper maybe... My creative juices haven't quite come back to me yet. ^^;

Hmm. I find when I'm not very inspired, I just read a badass comic book. It usually works to get me drawing cool stuff again.

That actually sounds like a good idea. I haven't read some of those Clone Wars comics in a while...

Might I recommend "darth maul death sentence" mini series. Badass stuff there. Pretty recent too.
