This is a Star Wars RPG / Star Wars Miniatures battle map of an Old Republic Consular-Class Cruiser (as seen at the beginning of Episode I - The Phantom Menace). The original size of the map is 145.15 by 98.09 cm at 150 dpi. Since this would be too large for any poster printer or plotter to print, I sliced the map into two more convenient sections (front and aft) that any print/copy shop should be able to handle.
I will be using this map for my Star Wars RPG campaign that is set at the beginning/during the Clone Wars. The ship will be featured in a re-written version of the "Shard of Alderaan" scenario that can be found in the old West End Games Star Wars Live-Action Adventures supplement.
I know there are some flaws in the map, like not all shadows being cast in the same direction and some object having no shadow at all. However, the map still works fine and this was a huge project that crashed my computer several times, so please, bear with me...
I hope you like the map. Constructive comments and critique are very welcome.

ę A New Hope Ľ Star Wars fanart 2012.09.21
Tu‚nísÖ Mood: Hangover Listening to: Bun B ďIll TrillĒ Reading: FranÁois Jullien "Eloge de la Fadeur" - Nobuhiro Watsuki "BusŰ Renkin" (itís wack) Watching: Batman Begins Playing: The Last Remnant (Xbox 360) (finally!!!)
Oh gosh, Iím so fxcked up now! So sorry, I promised myself Iíd never use bad words again in my art comments, but I have to say it: fxck fxck fxck hahaha! I had a blast last night at my man Karimís, but I should always remember that drinking alcohol in a hot jacuzzi ainít a good match! Unless you wanna be drunk real fast. Thatís what happened to me. The last time that ďcombo I should avoidĒ did hit me, I was in Osaka. I went to a club with my brother and paid for an all-you-can-drink joint (飲み放題). When we left, we were hungry as hell and decided to grab some yakitori in a small izakaya. But I donít know why my bro ordered Japanese sake instead!... Well, it literally killed us and we ended up puking somewhere around DŰtonbori. When we came back home, for an unknown reason, we decided to go to the public bath. And of course, because of the warmth, the alcohol striked back and we were fxcked up for real once again. These are some of my amazing aventures.
Anyway, I told you about Karim. Itís a good coincidence since heís a very big fan of Star Wars. Me too, I do admit. Iím not the type of person who knows everything about George Lucasí universe, but I do like the 6 movies. And come on, being a Jedi must be the shxt isnít it???? Iím a huge fan of Obi-Wan Kenobi in fact, especially in episodes I, II and III. Ewan McGregorís performance is amazing, plus itís a real pleasure to see a young Obi-Wan light sabering some ass. I hope Iíll have the occasion to draw Obi-Wan as a youngster anytime soon.
I watched all the episodes not long ago and it turned me into a Jedi. I wish it was the case hehe. It just motivated me to draw a Star Wars fanart. And another good coincidence: deviantArt organized a ďDraw This AgainĒ contest. Since I already did a Star Wars art years ago, it was the occasion to do an updated version. You can see the original version here: [link]. It was also a way to see if my skills improved with time. I think itís the case . I just added Princess Leia in the middle of the pic. Some people told me I drew her with very big boobs. Yes I did. I love them, end of discussion. Since itís my reinterpretation of Star Wars with my manga style, I have the right to do whatever I want right? So If I wanna draw Leia with big boobs, just let me draw her with big boobs. Ö Itís amazing how I always find ways to talk about boobs and that kind of stuffs (-_-. Iím deeply sorry. Anyway, that art name is ďA New HopeĒ since it inspires of Star Wars Episode IV. I wanted to draw Han Solo and Chewbacca as well, but that would be too much. The best solution was to draw the Millennium Falcon, so Han and Chewie are there as well in a certain wayÖ
I think I finally start to find my very own style, especially in coloring with Photoshop. Iím into digital art for 4 years already, but do not forget I have a whole background as a traditional drawer before that. So itís always kinda new to me. Iím used to Photoshop but Iím fascinated by all its possibilities. Theyíre quite infinite. So Iím always getting better in trying stuffs and of course having fun. I think itís important to start with straight traditional art before trying anything with digital art.
Argh, I already wrote too many things!!!! So sorry! But I know nobody reads my art comments hahaha!
