C-3PO has never really been one of my favorite droids–he was more annoying than anything else, lol. But over the years I’ve softened toward him. I especially liked him in The Rise of Skywalker. And I’ve seen a lot of great fan art of him. Which is impressive, because what do you do to make a droid, whose face remains the same all the time, interesting? You do whimsical, that’s what you do!
I love this series by Kyle Hagey, who puts Star Wars characters into beautiful meadows of flowers while having tea or knitting or some such thing. Threepio is daydreaming here, an idea that tickles me. What does Threepio daydream about? Safety, probably. No laser battles, people behaving, things going as they should. Oil baths. Artoo not getting them into trouble, that sort of thing, lol.
This is another artist whose series I like. I just love the slapdash colors and sense of movement. It looks like confetti is coming off of Threepio, as if in celebration of him.
This outfit just seems to fit Threepio. A Victorian English gentleman overly concerned with propriety.
Who knew the innards of Threepio’s head would be an interesting subject for art? Funny thing is, I never noticed that thing sticking out at the top of his head. Has that always been there???
Another Victorian, or possibly Edwardian, Threepio. This time he’s got a title: Baron von C3PO. I think he’d be quite pleased with that.
This one’s great because he looks like some kind of droid fashion model strutting his stuff, lol.
What do you think of these images? What’s your opinion of Threepio? Let me know in the comments, and we’ll talk about it!
