The Princess of Alderaan, from Fantasy Flight's upcoming "Star Wars: The Card Game," one of the products being released as a part of their new Star Wars line. As of this posting it hasn't been spoiled on FFG's website, but it is in the current issue(74) of ImagineFX (you know, the Star Wars issue).
You can check out my other previewed illustration from the set in my gallery (Currently Han and Darth are also in there, with more to come later)
Hi guys! This is a new set of 12 artworks I did for the new Star Wars Essential Reader's Companion. Although the dateline for this book was a lot tighter it nevertheless was an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
As with the last book I will be posting them in the order of sequence as it appears in the Reader's Companion. Enjoy!
This next scene is from Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader. Vader and his 501st Legion battles Wookies and Jedis Siadem Forte and Iwo Kulka and just plain being a badass!

Now this is something I'm SUPER pumped about. Star Wars was such an inspiration to me as a kid and I remember thinking time and time again "I wish I could do Star Wars art!". Well, whaddaya know. I get to do Star Wars art! Fantasy Flight Games is releasing their new Star Wars living card game soon and a couple of my cards were spoiled at the previews at GenCon. The first card I did for the game was none other than Darth Vader. I'm really humbled that my art director felt comfortable enough giving me the task to create art for the most badass sci-fi villain of all time. Rarely do we get to see Vader dealing with rebel scum in such a direct way, so I'm sure you can imagine how giddy I was when I got the initial prompt.
hello everybody. it's time for another star wars update. i'm such an hardcore fan of the star wars universe so after boba it was normal to do a little vader. maybe the most badass vilain ever!
done this week, during my lunch break and a little after work. approx 22 hours of work. differents ref where used to draw the vader. leather is a bitch to draw you know haha! also a little tribute to an artist because I love his work so much, (adam hughes...had the opportunity to meet him in paris several time and his a really nice guy) for the sith silhouettes in the background (inspired by his cover for purge who had jedi silouhettes)
another little fake cover, just for fun here : [link]
hope you will like it, next one...dunno yet...maybe a tie fighter pilot?
hi all. long time no see (one week haha) the past week i haven't done speed painting because i was working on this pic. a little tribute to the star wars universe and boba fett, the greatest bounty hunter in the galaxy. I'm just a so fucking hardcore star wars fan and it was a pleasure to do this tribute.
done in a week during lunchs break at works so...maybe 12 or 13 hours. i have used my boba fett toy as a reference.
hope you will like it. just for fun, a fake comics cover here : [link]
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!
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.
I wanted to draw Darth Vader again - but I wanted to do something different. I thought that the juxtaposition of the Dark Lord of the Sith, ultimate movie bad guy - in a pretty, colourful woodland on some alien world would be something different!
I've called it 'The Nightmare' because, the way I imagine it - the last thing you would want to see if you were in such a peaceful place would be Darth Vader suddenly marching towards you. But I also thought that, for Darth Vader, being in such an idyllic place would also be torture... maybe even a nightmare?
This is an entirely original depiction of George Lucas's character. Drawn by me in Photoshop using a Wacom pad.
I put a lot of hard work and thought into this and I hope you like it - but please let me know before you use any of my drawings anywhere else. Thanks.
