The Old Republic - Rise of an Empire by KPants The Old Republic - Rise of an Empire by KPants

06.07.2014 - The Old Republic: Rise of an Empire

After about a month and a half, and what was around 70 hours of work, the first poster in this series is complete. The intended story of this "movie" is the tale of Revan's fall to the dark side, taming of his apprentice, and rise of his army and empire through the discovery of the Star Forge. All of which are pre-cursor to Knights of the Old Republic.

It'd be great if it was something Disney would look into for one of their stand alone films coming along.

My word this is gorgeous!!! I have been waiting for someone to do these games justice with a proper poster and you have hit the nail on the head! The shadows, blurs, and flare effects are perfect and mold all these images into one eye catching piece. I have other starwars posters produced by the film company and this would fit right in without anyone knowing it's a game. Well done!

Thanks for the super compliment! You're more than welcome to pick up a copy of the poster from my shop :). If you do art yourself, I'd highly suggest Manga Studio, it's honestly the biggest reason this and my other Old Republic poster came out so well.

Not sure if I will watch the new movie.

But if THIS came out, there would be no question.

Marvelous work!

Hahaha, thank you! It would be a VERY great idea for them to make a film, but I'm pretty-sure rights or something along those lines between Lucasfilm, Disney and Bioware prevent a Revan film from being created, let alone them developing this new cannon universe.

I definitely am going to see all the new movies, though :). Thanks for the comment and appreciation!

Yeah, it pretty-much tells the story of Revan PRE-KotOR and breaking into KotOR. Or that's the intention for the movie I had in my head while making this poster :). Thanks for the appreciation!

The story was really good and did a great job at expanding the mythos, whatever happens with the new movie, I still consider this rpg as canon

I love this poster and I love the game. It may not hold up by current RPG standards but it certainly set the bar for how GOOD RPG's SHOULD be. It also made me really enjoy a Star Wars game not just for the action, but its storytelling. The Old Republic that followed was great, but never hit that bar of excellence that I wanted it to be. Still, its sequel might have been choppy but certainly had memorable characters and great action sequences. 

I love ya, KOTOR!

Yeah, both KotOR games had their merits. I really enjoyed the second for how much it expanded on what the original didn't do, but held it's faults. To Obsidian's credit, the game was extremely rushed and thus why the story sort of just abruptly ended. I remember sitting there bewildered that I had just beaten the game when it just felt like the middle. The Old republic was a fantastic game, it just wasn't and isn't all that great of an MMO. With WoW still dominating the market as MMO done right, they really should have just stuck with single-player with perhaps a Diablo-esque multiplayer element. The MMO aspect of it just sort of gutted what it could have been.

But thanks for the comment and praise of the poster! Always enjoy a good discussion :).

No problem. ^^ It's always nice to see fellow lovers of this series. It certainly has a great mythos, the era of the Old Republic that is. From KotOR to KotOR II and then to Old Republic it certainly help set the bar for what kind of age it was before politics and peacekeeping was the norm for Jedi and two was the standard number for Sith. Plus it didn't hurt to have great main characters with a stunning support cast. I still can remember how blown away I was to find out my main character was Revan or when the Outcast was declared "The Death of the Force,". Both of which are great twists for the Star Wars Universe and fit that mold of Epic Reveals that was set back in Episode V: Empire Strikes Back. 

Thanks for the poster and the talk, too. I enjoyed it :)

this is awesome.  I have a special place in my ventricles for Bobba Fett, I brought Jeremy (Bulloch) a beer once, he was a real sweetie. And very much of the "Old Republic" :-)

Glad you like it :). Even if Bulloch didn't have a speaking or face-recognizable role in the movies, it's still really cool to meet people who played vital roles in films that have survived the centuries. If Boba Fett didn't already have SO MUCH amazing art work based around him, I might jot him on my list of things to make something on.

Wow. I think... yeah, I might just kill to see this actually made. It's an epic idea and they can do SO MUCH with it... and the story's already written. All they need to do is adapt it into a movie. (or a trilogy of movies)
The first one being the aftermath of the Mandelorian wars, and Revan's fall. (This poster) The second would essentially be Knights of the Old Republic, showing Revan re-purposed and fighting Malak. Then the third would be... well... I've never actually played the sequel to the game, but I'm sure the story would work.

The poster itself is epic, very well done!

Thanks! Yeah, the next couple posters in the series are going to be KotOR ("Revalations") and either KotOR II ("Consumption") or the Revan story from the book with the bit during SWTOR. Haven't fully decided. Either way, I want less focus on him and more of what he did on the final poster. Just have some commissions lining up that I have to do first :(.

Yeah... Like I said, the only old republic game I've played is Kotor. The first one. (And, sadly, I can't play it anymore, I had it on the original Xbox, but it was my brothers and he moved out.) Soo... I dunno about those stories, but I'm sure they're good.

Hahaha, I couldn't tell you. It'd be pretty-damned cool, though! I figure making some posters about it to inspire imaginations kinda satiate that desire for actual films :). Glad you like it! I'd kill for this movie to become reality, too.
