Imagining Star Wars Ships Crashed In Real World Cities

June 23, 2015


These are several Photoshop jobs created by French artist Nicolas Amiard imagining different Star Wars ships crashed in famous world cities. He did a great job, but I'm sadly convinced it's only a matter of time before somebody starts bitching about how he got the scale all wrong and ruined everything because this is the internet and having nice things is not our cup of tea.

Keep going for seven more, but check out Nicolas' Behance page if you want to download a higher-res version to use as your new wallpaper.








Thanks to DJ, who I'm really hoping plays my song before I get too drunk and have to go home.

    I know he took time to do these. But it was still a rush job. Probably the amount he had to do caused it. I'd still hook my horn. And want them to move lol.

    Nicolas Amiard, an art director at an ad agency based in Paris did these pics BUT I have seen better made by no name fans

    This is pretty terrible Photoshop for 2015. If this were from, maybe, 10 years ago people might be impressed. But today? Nope.

    That's right, Russia! Your stance on homosexuality means you get an incredibly gay Naboo Starfighter!

    SUCK IT!

    If a ship crashed I would expect to see at least some level of damage to the surrounding structures. Especially the one with the TIE Fighter, if it is that beat up there should be some busted glass and scorch marks on the buildings.

  • WhiteEagle2

    Yeah, this is more of a "Look at star wars ships sitting in cities". They don't really look like they crashed. The most damage was the Tie Fighter. Granted I couldn't do anything better or as good as this guy did.

  • captaindash

    Yeah but you didn't post yours as 'art' to be taken seriously.

  • Emmitt Morgans

    I'm surprised both of the wings are attached to the cockpit; those things flew like Frisbees in the ESB asteroid belt!

    Why no shoop of the SSD crashed from the trailer? Would have thought that would look impressive ploughed into a city.

  • Bubbubsky

    It should be French "artist," not artist. These pictures are evidence enough that he is merely an alleged artist.

  • Leland_Gaunt

    No Mega Maid? C'mon...

  • Emmitt Morgans


    If someone does do that, they should probably put a Brazzers watermark on it.

  • Darren McCoy

    Am I the only one who thinks that Star Destroyers do not belong in a planets atmosphere?

  • -Matthew ☺ Carr-

    Look up the SSD Lusankya. She was burried under Coruscant and blasted her way out.

  • richard

    Actually, star destroyers (imperial or victory) can enter an atmosphere. They just can't land is all. The old Venator class star destroyer from the pre-quaels had the ability to land, but they were nearly 2/3rds the size of the Imperial star destroyer

  • jodamiller

    Crashing ships usually have little say in the matter.

  • Koolhaas

    that one with the millennium falcon is way out of scale.

  • Fredrik Pettersen

    I agree. But it's supposed to look like the ship is closer to the camera. Dark portions on the buildings to the left gives an unfortunate impression of the ship casting a shadow on them.

    To separate background and middle ground better one could use an image in which perspective was shifted a bit higher over the water surface. That way the ship's waterline would have been separated even further apart from Manhattans shoreline in the background.

  • Koolhaas

    I think the artist just made a mistake with the scale. It doesn't make sense to have the falcon in the middle of the bay. It would sink.

    I think it's a pretty good rendering if the falcon were to be that size. The reflections on the water.

  • Deksam

    True, Han Solo would have to stand 25 foot tall, for this to be accurate.
