If you're a Star Wars fan, then you know what day it is. Wait, is there someone out there who isn't a Star Wars fan? Hands down, Star Wars has one of the largest fan bases, which means one thing and one thing only: passionate fans.
And sure, there can be times when people become too passionate about Star Wars, but really, it only adds to the experience. With passion comes amazing fan art. So, in homage to the Fourth of May, we're taking a look at some of the best fan art we're ever seen. And trust us, it wasn't easy narrowing them down.
If there's one thing most people can't picture, is Yoda being anything but kind-hearted and wise beyond the universe, Right? But what would have happened if Yoda wasn't the Yoda we've all come to love? What if he ended up on the dark side? How would the storyline of Star Wars turn out?
It's interesting to take the "good" characters and see what they would look like if they were on the dark side. And let's just say "evil" Yoda is freaking us out a bit. Though we love this piece of fan art, it's perfection.
Galactic Empire Bow
Maybe you don't have your complete costume ready for the 4th of May, or maybe you just want to have a little bit of Star Wars with you wherever you go. Well, if you have the hair to support a bow, it's about time you got yourself the Galactic Empire bow.
Who said fan art has to be only paintings or drawings? Why can't fan art being something else crafted by your hands? We love this fan art because it's wearable.
So elegant, so humble, and so furry. Chewbacca is usually one of the most fan favorites when it comes to characters because, well, do we need to explain? What's not to love about Chewbacca? Rescued by Han Solo, since then, he has remained a loyal friend and right-hand man.
Chewbacca and Solo fought the Empire countless times. He's the friend you always wished you had. Maybe just with less hair. Anyone who doesn't like Chewbacca is definitely on the dark side.
The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda
When most of us have to finish a school project, we slap together some paper with glue, do a couple of scribbles and call it a day. But for this Star Wars fan, he went above beyond. We just hope he got 100% for this sculpture.
The artist was inspired by two, also amazing concepts from Saby Menyhei and Pablo Olivera. Using their art as inspiration, this fan-created his own masterpiece. His teacher better be a Star Wars fan after this!
Baby Yoda Skateboard
If there's one thing that has made all the craze, it's baby Yoda. We know you've seen what baby Yoda looks like, and all we can say is awww. How cute is he! Now we want our own little baby Yoda. This one fan made a baby Yoda skateboard for his friend.
But what language is on the skateboard? Written in Aurebesh, it says, "The Child." Now that's a true Star Wars fan, and we couldn't let this go unnoticed. Guess it's time we learned how to skateboard too...
Everyone has their own taste when it comes to art. Some people like abstract art, while others are into detailed paintings and drawings. Well, if you're the latter, then you're mind is going to be blown by this illustration of Han Solo's ship.
Sure, it's not exactly flying in the air; rather, this artist wanted to show the ship taking a little dip into freezing waters. And honestly? We don't mind. Just look at the detail! It makes you feel like you're right there watching it happen.
No, no, no, don't worry. This isn't a "burned Yoda" picture. What kind of monsters do you think we are? This one artist decided to ditch the paper and pencil and try to burn an image of Yoda onto pine wood. To our surprise, it looks pretty amazing.
We didn't think this was possible, but a true artist can make art from anything. Oh, did we mention it's baby Yoda? That just makes the entire artwork even cuter. Our baby Yoda obsession is healthy, we swear.
Clone Trooper Helmet
As we said before, people have different tastes when it comes to art. Not everyone wants paintings hanging on the walls of their favorite Star Wars characters. Some prefer to have memorabilia sitting on their shelves or desks. This may look like your average Clone Trooper Helmet, oh, but it's not.
This helmet is actually a 3D print. It's in the second print phase, so it's not quite finished, but we already love how it looks and how they managed to put an idea on paper and make an actual object from it.
A Dark side Party
You know what they say, ain't no party like a dark side party. That's the saying, isn't it? Artist Nikita Kokarev decided to jazz things up on the dark side and show everyone how they like to have a good time just like the rest of us.
Naturally, Darth Vader is the lead singer of the metal band, and we have to say, the look suits him pretty well. And you thought Clones have no personality? Look at the rock out in the dark-side mosh pit!
Yoda Blanket Art
While you're tucking yourself in at night under a fuzzy blanket, this fan decided to turn their fuzzy blanket into some jaw-dropping Star Wars fan art. In the top photo, you have an innocent, helpless blanket, and in the bottom photo - bam! Crazy Yoda art.
Who would have thought all you needed was your fingers and a fuzzy blanket to create a masterpiece. Well, now we know what to next time we see a fuzzy blanket! Or...we can just admire this art and admit to ourselves we'll never be able to match this.
Kylo Ren Realism
We swear this isn't a photo of Kylo Ren; this is an actual piece of art. Crazy, right? It doesn't even look close to someone drawing it. Though many Star Wars fans are torn on whether or not to love Kylo Ren, as many wanted Ben Solo.
Fans wanted Ben to have a chance at growing from his rough childhood and becoming the man everyone wanted him to be. But, we'll leave that for another day. Right now, whether you're a Kylo Ren fan or not, this piece of art is so real it scares us.
Ultimate Star Destroyer
Let's not kid ourselves; everyone loves playing with lego. We just don't like stepping on them. You can make interesting buildings and people, but this guy decided to take his love of Star Wars to a completely different level. Like seriously, have you come close to making a Star Destroyer like this?
This is one of the most impressive installations we've ever seen. It took the artist two days to complete and was a total of 4784 pieces of lego. Yeah, that's a lot of lego. This guy is a machine, and we love his effort.
Well, we wouldn't say we'd like to have him over for dinner. We have a feeling he wouldn't be a good conversationalist unless the topic was about death or...well, we don't think he's interested in too many other things.
This dark side warrior grew up in evil starting from when he was a child, and as you guessed it, he only became eviler. This piece of fan art is outstanding. The detail of his face and the saber penetrating into the ground, we only have one word - wow.
X-wing of bullets
Okay, now this piece of art is really cool. Firstly, just knowing it's an x-wing sculpture is amazing on its own. But what you don't know is that this sculpture is made entirely out of bullets. This is probably the coolest thing we've ever seen made of bullets.
This artist specifically works with bullets to make different art, but this one is our favorite. Considering it's made of bullets, the artist did a great job of trying to make it look identical to the original X-wing starfighter.
Right on, C-3PO
C-3PO doesn't get the credit he deserves. He's full of spunk that most people just don't realize. Okay, well, maybe he's not, but let's imagine if he was. C-3PO on a skateboard, winking at the ladies as he rolls on by, would be a pretty amazing thing to witness.
But we know, we know, he's just a robot. But can't robots let loose and have fun too? Well, this artist believes so, and we love his interpretation of a light-hearted and easy-going C-3PO. Basically...everything he isn't...
Clone Trooper Hat
Now, not everyone is a hat fan, but if you happen to be both a Star Wars and a hat fan, it looks like this artist nailed your vision of the perfect headwear. Using spray paint, this artist created a fun and touching Clone Trooper hat.
We're not hat people, but after seeing this wearable fan art, we may consider switching our opinion. Plus, the roses give it a romantic vibe, and we're suckers for a love story. This is fun and actually usable fan art.
Sunset of Coruscant
Which Star Wars planet is your favorite? We'd have to go with Coruscant. Just look at that sunset. Have you seen anything more beautiful? We love the fact the planet is covered in cities of skyscrapers, dense neighborhoods, and is home to both humanoid and alien species.
It's so progressive, considering it's had a rich and eventful history. Maybe we like this planet so much because it reminds us of Earth. You know, a home away from home. Look at us, getting all sentimental from this fan art.
Maybe we have a hidden thing for Clone Troopers, but we can't help it. So many artists are creating amazing art inspired by them. Take this piece of art, for example. In the artist's caption, Kevin said, "finally focused and did something in a couple of days."
This took only a couple of days? If you asked us to do this, it would have taken us a lifetime. Well, Kevin, good for you. This Clone Trooper looks so life-like, it's amazing. Fun fact: clones are genetically modified to be obedient.
This is true 3D art (not to insult the other 3D print pieces on this list). But when it comes to life-like art, they did an amazing job of making a replica of the Star Wars Snowspeeder. Though for this artist, it's not just a Snowspeeder. It's also a sled. That's right.
While other people are sliding down hills on lame sleds, they're going down the hill in a Snowspeeder. And the detail on this Snowspeeder makes it look like the perfect replica. Can they make us one? We promise to treat it right!
We feel like Pong Krell doesn't get much attention. Everyone loves making fan art of clone troopers or Yoda, but Pong Krell seems to get left in the dust. The artist who decided to make this isn't a fan of Pong Krell, either.
They said in their post, "haven't hated a character in a show or movie like that in a long time." Tell us more about how you feel! Are we the only ones who like Pong Krell? It looks like he doesn't have the biggest fan club. Do you like Pong Krell?
Every person who's watched Star Wars wants their own lightsaber. Even if you didn't like the franchise (which would be crazy), the lightsaber is something that sticks in your mind. You just wish you had one of your own. Well, one dad with a creative mind decided to make a lightsaber for his son.
Yes, that's right; he has an actual lightsaber. It was made from aluminum, stainless steel, brass, and ziricote timber. And it's beautiful. Can we touch it? Just once, we promise not to drop it. Are we the only ones salivating right now?
If we had a grill like this, we're pretty sure we'd be having BBQs every day. There's no way you couldn't show off to your friends. Who else has a grill like this? Exactly. Honestly, we feel this is the best way to pay homage to your favorite franchise.
What other fan art mixes bbq food with an AT-AT walker? The artist behind this idea should be awarded a medal of Star Wars honor. Is there such a thing? We don't know, but who do we call about this?
Star Wars Mini-Series
This style of drawing is a little different from the other fan art on this list, and that's what we love about it. This artist decided to create a Star Wars mini-series of six Star Wars characters, including Yoda, Rancor, Chewie, and Admiral Ackbar.
Most of them aren't the usual characters people think of when they want to create Star Wars fan art. And it's a great idea to jazz things up a bit and step outside of the box. This is one of our favorites; we just love the style.
3D-printed Shoretrooper Armor
We can all appreciate fan art and would love to have some paintings or drawings hanging in our home. But, most of us dream of the day when we can wear some fan art. But we're not just talking about having a photo of Chewbacca on our t-shirt. We want the full deal.
Well, this artist decided to make his own shoretrooper (Coastal defender stormtrooper) armor using a 3D printer. It took them a year of printing, sanding, and painting until they finally finished the armor. But it was well worth the hard work.
When it comes to wood, we don't really think much of it. Sure, people make cutting boards and desks, but there's not a lot of wood art around, especially wooden art that's dedicated to Star Wars. But artist Daniel Brown took his specialized wood carving skills and created this stunning picture of Jabba's Palace.
Oh, right, we forgot to mention the entire picture is made of wood. Using different shades of wood, Brown created a picture-perfect scene of the palace. Jabba would be so proud.
