Darth Maul Squid by MegLyman Darth Maul Squid by MegLyman
Another fantastic commission!

I just can't imagine giving a squid a lightsaber would be a good idea, much less an evil squid hell-bent on revenge... but it sure was fun to paint.

8x10 gouache and ink

Hilarious mental image: This squid flying around through the air, fighting Qui-gon and Obi-wan in the place of Darth Maul at the end of Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace.

Given the humanoid Maul's take on lightsabers, shouldn't Squid Maul be wielding five double bladed lightsabers? (Or would that be on extremely badass ten-bladed lightsaber?)

I, on the other hand, would love to see the aftermath. Especially if the surrounding circumstances involved a vat of rice. :chew:

If Maul was a squid he would've whooped Obi Wan and Quigon's asses with his many flailing tentacles of EVIL!

Giving him a double-sided Lightsabre is a terrible idea, but a single-bladed one would be fine, just hold it in his mouth and poke people :>
