It was only a matter of time. We all love Cloud City, we all want to live there right? well I do. Can you imagine you're flying by and you come by this. I kept the light down low horizon to capture that dusk romantic feel. This is a tribute to both a favourite environment of mine and all time great artist RMQ.

For the lighting I mixed my own work with a stock piece created by Steve Burg [link] Be sure to check his work out as well, I am sure a lot of you have.

Old, mature, master, this is what I would like to see in J.J. Abrams take on the film, a more mature Luke Skywalker, with bits of ancient armor, with a peaceful and wise look, patient, and of course, the rise of the sith, we need more old school sith empire, like in the old republic times, leave a comment, let me know if you like the piece and what do you think of J.J. Abrams taking part as a director for our beloved Star Wars!, may the force be with you!!!

I had an idea that Jabba's Rancor would sometimes go for an evening stroll around Tatooine - and on this occasion he found an AT-AT to play with. (Perhaps the AT-AT was there as part of the deployment sent to look for the two droids at the start of 'A New Hope'?)

When I originally envisaged this piece I thought I would draw it from a low angle - looking up at the Rancor climbing up the AT-AT's leg. But I decided that changing the angle so that the viewer can see the Imperial troops would be a good idea to add some more drama and humour. I'm glad I made the change - although it meant a lot more work drawing the characters - as well as trying to imagine what the roof of an AT-AT might look like if it was scrunched up!?

The first driver is so terrified he's about to jump straight off the top of the AT-AT to avoid being eaten - saying "I'm outta here!". The other driver's saying "Hold up - wait for me" - while the Commander won't abandon his post and is angrily shouting at the Rancor: "You there, stop that!"

This is an entirely original depiction of George Lucas's characters - drawn in Photoshop using a Wacom pad. I put a huge amount of effort into this - and I hope that comes across even in this low-res version (the original is 600dpi).

Hope you like!

I've already posted other drawings of Darth Vader, but he's a popular character - and I like drawing him - so I thought it was time to do another!

I'd also been wanting to draw some TIE Fighter Pilots and thought up an idea so that I could include them with Vader in the same piece...

If you've seen the original Star Wars movie - you might remember the scene where Vader gets a couple of pilots to follow him into battle against the rebels. I couldn't help think that they took it a little too leisurely as they marched off round the corner like they were heading straight to the fridge for a snack. What they needed was a red flashing emergency light to generate some urgency! So here they are - red light on - and whadya know - they're all running to their ships now!

In reality I just made that up because I wanted to draw the characters in a dynamic pose - and with some red highlights (which always looks good against black). But I hope my little backstory helps sell the idea!
:lol:

This is an original depiction of George Lucas's characters - drawn in Photoshop using a Wacom pad. I might put up a work-in-progress of this if anyone's interested because I took a couple of screenshots at various stages. You might also find it interesting that I used Google Sketchup to create a 3D model of the background to ensure that the perspective is right (after having sketched it out freehand first). This is a reduced resolution version of the original which is 600dpi.

Hope you like.

Here's my drawing of the baddies from the prequel trilogy of the Star Wars movies.

For this picture I started off with the idea of drawing a sister piece to my 'Empire' drawing:

... but I had to be selective when choosing which characters to use as I wanted this to be representative of the Clones from both the second and third movies - but that means, I necessarily had to leave some cool characters out.

This is an entirely original picture. First drawn freehand with pencil on paper, then scanned and coloured (over many, many hours) in Photoshop using a Wacom tablet.

Hope you like!
