When someone does a search for Star Wars fan art, they have a general idea of what they’re looking for. Everyone has different tastes, but, for the most part, fans want to see something they’re familiar with in a new light. This typically means a cute webcomic or a detailed hand drawing or a creative digital creation.
In other words, most people don’t go looking for weird things. It’s the Internet, so strange things do pop up in image searches. And there are exceptionally creative (or disturbing, depending on how you view their work) people who take fan art to the next level.
We’ve compiled some of the weirdest Star Wars fan art we could find. Don’t worry, we’ve avoided the trash compactor level, so these aren’t too gross. But some are NSFW.
Internet artists love themed mashups. This artist mixed Star Wars with pinup models. Pinup Boba Fett stands out in a crowd of nondescript troopers sporting lingerie and holding their helmets provocatively.
Punch It Chewie
We’re very confused by this one. Is Chewbacca a giant? The Millennium Falcon and Han appear to be toys, but the Wampa looks as real as Chewie. Or are they all toys? If so, why is he in a Wampa den? Why is he holding a screwdriver like that? What. Is. Going. On. Here?
We’re pretty sure that, if Mark Hammill hasn’t already posted this to his Instagram, it will eventually make it there. The man loves fan art that pokes fun at him or Luke Skywalker. And this is certainly a unique take on that.
Humans create droids. Sometimes they use droids in the process, but droids themselves don’t mate. They don’t even have a defined sex or gender, so it’s not scientifically possible.
Perhaps K-2SO meant that he built them. But what is he going to do with tiny K-2s? They won’t physically grow. They’ll always be small. We just hope he put adult programming into them so they don’t need to be potty trained.
How Fast Is Your Spaceship?
By definition, caricatures are weird. But there’s something borderline disturbing about caricatures this detailed. At least the artist threw in some jokes to balance out that terrifying Chewbacca.
Darth Jar Jar Binks
Here’s another that comes with additional reading. There’s a popular fan theory that Jar Jar Binks is the mastermind behind the Sith Lords in the prequel trilogy. Important question: would that make this universally hated character better or worse?
One of the most disturbing pieces we included here, this evil Yoda may give you nightmares. The detailed artwork is creepy on its own, but Yoda trained Luke Skywalker. It’s almost heartbreaking to see this.
The two AT-ATs are mom and dad. The AT-ST child is named BA-M8i. They even chose Hoth to place the family. If you’ve seen the iconic blizzard scene in the Disney classic Bambi, this hits hard. We hope you enjoy dark humor!
This seemingly simple piece raises too many questions. Why do we need fan art where Rey is bowling? Why would she change into bowling shoes but keep her desert wraps on? What’s the point of bowling BB-8 when he can just go wherever he wants?
Psychotic Kylo Ren
Even after killing his own father and turning on Rey, fans still hold out hope that Kylo Ren will turn to the Light Side. This artist appears to disagree. Look at those eyes. He’s somewhere between, “Ooooh, cake!” and, “It puts the lotion on its skin.”
Before Jar Jar, the preferred character to hate was actually an entire species: the Ewok. The cute, hooded bears were despised by many Star Wars fans. I think we can all agree that bloodthirsty Ewoks are another thing entirely.
Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan beard was ahead of its time as far as style is concerned. We’re not going to deny that it aligns well with what came to be known as the hipster beard, but this is too far. Let’s not ruin one of the noblest characters in the series by putting a pumpkin spice latte in his hand.
Kylo the Ripper
Here’s another weird mashup: Kylo Ren as Jack the Ripper. Complete with period-appropriate Stormtroopers in the background. Because we haven’t gone to enough weird places in this list.
What Do You Think?
Most of these artists have impressive portfolios, so we’re not denying their talent. But sometimes creativity takes you to weird places. What do you think? Do you enjoy weird Star Wars fan art? Let us know if we missed any of your favorites!
