This is one of ten pieces I did for the new Star Wars Essential Guide to Warfare. I had a blast working on it and I'm excited that I am able to contribute to the Star Wars universe.

I will be posting them in the order of sequence as it appears in the book. Hope you guys enjoy them!

This is one of my favorite pieces from the Galactic Civil War era. This battle, which took place after the destruction of the first Death Star but before the events of Empire Strikes Back, was an elaborate ambush set by Vader and the Empire to destroy the Alliance leadership along with its fleet. Under overwhelming odds the Rebels would've fled to a designated location where they would regroup, but had they done that they would have found another Imperial fleet waiting for them. The fleet instead dispersed and made random jumps to avoid being completely annihilated. The Alliance almost lost the entire fleet from this battle but enough survived to carry on the fight and eventually make a comeback at the Battle of Endor.

This battle is recounted in the Star War comic "Rebellion: My Brother, My Enemy".

Of the ten pieces I did for Warfare I think this is my favorite one. This scene takes place at the Battle of Kashyyyk during the Second Galactic Civil War where Galactic Alliance forces clash with Confederate forces made up of Bothans, Wookies, Hapans and the Jedi Order. The battle rages around the Anakin Solo, commanded by Jacen Solo (secretly Darth Cadeus), as she bombards the planet surface of Kashyyyk from orbit with her forward long-range turbolasers.

Other things to note in this piece is the never-before-seen Wookie Owool Interceptors making attack runs on the Anakin Solo and the Stealth X fighters flown by Jaina Solo and the Jedis in the foreground. There are also some XJ3/XJ5 X-wings flying about and for those who are wondering about the Mon Calamari Cruiser, yes, it is an MC90 class.

On the upside, I can now post what remaining art I have from the core set. On the OTHER upside, there are also quite a few more illustrations to come for the expansions, so look for more in the coming months.

Now that Galaxies is officially defunct, I thought it safe to post some of my favourite illustrations here for posterity sake..!

Working on this franchise for close to 2 years really helped me grow as a creative and allowed me to explore many aspects of the craft-- its not often you get to play the role of illustrator, story-teller and designer within a single commission. It was truly rewarding in hindsight and more often that not, a very humbling experience when you witness the sheer quality and passion of other fellow creatives working on the same project, really inspires you to stretch yourself beyond the usual bounds!

I was asked to edit out the body parts in the background.. ;) (Note the unofficial indirect-fire wrist rockets being deployed)

Hard to see where you're going in a firefight with those blinders for a visor... ;) Still love scout troopers all the same.

I always try to nab the trooper cards before anyone else. :) I recall being very taken by the bleached and cross-processed art direction of Black Hawk Down and had to do a few cards in a similar feel. What better than with one involving rappelling special forces stormies..

Here's the latest in my series of "Could have happened!" moments from the Star Wars films. This would be during the time in The Phantom Menace when Maul is stalking The Queen and company.

 I wanted to play around with the idea of the Sandpeople being easily frightened ( as we saw in Episode 4). Someone like Darth Maul walking around (who basically looks like Satan) would probably startle them. And I wanted to capture a quieter Maul moment, him just walking the desert, his lightsaber as a makeshift walking stick to further push that wanderer vibe.

This is the third in the Star Wars series I'm doing, which includes my Vader on Hoth and Boba Fett Sarlaac Escape pieces.

This one depicts the off-screen moment of the Sandtroopers slaughtering the Jawas that sold Luke the droids.

Clone War

I was a big fan of Gendy Tartakovsky's Clone Wars series that first aired a few years back. More so than the actual Star Wars prequels, I felt like that animated series painted a really cool portrait of just what an entire galaxy at war would look like. And I always enjoyed seeing these elite Clonetrooper soldiers carrying out an impossible assignment on some god-awful planet. So with this painting, I wanted it to seem sort of like a World War 2 photo taken during one of the rare "quiet" moments of combat. This was also the first digital painting I've done entirely in Photoshop, with no Painter IX. Which I didn't even notice until I finished it.

a WIP of a Darth Revan companion piece to Vader in the Galaxies promo. Strangely enough this is the first Darth Revan I've done since I first created him for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic all those years ago. May do more in future, some Sith Troopers, maybe even a Darth Malak rethink. For the record I loathe the original Malak design, and thankfully wasn't responsible for it, but Revan I thought turned out well

WIP of most everyone's fave SW bounty hunter. Definitely inspired by the spirit and energy of Mike Capprotti's killer BF piece and happy to acknowledge it. Playing around in the Star Wars pool, something I haven't done since I worked on Knights of the Old Republic at Bioware lo those many years ago

The SW:KOTOR Sith fighter. Our Art Director whipped off a sketch at the time and I'd never had the opportunity to illustrate it, given the monumental amount of design for the game to get through. So many years later here's a martini shot of it. Hope you dig it

Here is another painting I did for the Star Wars Essential Reader's Companion.

-------------
This was a very fun job... But quite a challenge as well. I had 2 months to do 39 illustrations for this book.

While speed is a strength that normally lands me a lot of my work, I still want to do as best as I can. It can become quite a challenge. I pushed VERY hard on this assignment to do my absolute best-- even having to work it around my regular freelance work. But I pulled it off... And I am happy with the way it came out.

Boba Fett was always one of my favorite Star Wars characters (despite me killing him in my 'Predator kills the Star Wars universe' picture). So it always really bugged me that he got taken out in Return of the Jedi in such a slapstick way.

Evidently I wasn't alone in my dissatisfaction with the idea that a temporarily blind Han Solo could do away with the galaxy's greatest bounty hunter without even realizing it - because almost immediately the 'expanded universe' of stories revealed that Boba did in fact escape the Sarlacc. I'm certainly not the first to try to depict the scene of how Boba might have emerged from the Sarlacc's pit - but I did want to make my version different from the others that you might have already seen.

I'm no expert on how the Sarlacc's digestive system works - but we heard something in the movie about it taking a thousand years to digest its victims. So perhaps it has some kind of way of putting its 'food' into suspended animation so it can eat it slowly whenever it needs to?

My idea for this scene is that it's now thirty years after being knocked into the Sarlacc and Fett has only just emerged. The Sarlacc's stomach acid has been wearing away at him all this time - leading to the added corrosion and cracks I've drawn - until the acid created a short circuit in Fett's jet pack which ignited the rocket on his pack and killed the Sarlacc - allowing Fett to wake from his stasis and slowly, wearily crawl up out of the burning pit!

...this means that he's emerging just in time to appear in Star Wars Episode 7 - looking to take revenge on Han Solo!!!
(It's a stretch I know - but so is the idea that a person can be digested for a thousand years! :lol:)

This was drawn in Photoshop using a Wacom pad. Star Wars and its characters are copyright of Disney - this is fan art and isn't for sale or reproduction.

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.

Most of my artwork I post here is done in 'portrait' style because I'd really like to draw a Star Wars comic cover one day! But I thought I should try to demonstrate that I can also create 'landscape' scenes too - so I've put together a series of three pictures depicting scenes that 'sort of' happened in the original Star Wars trilogy.

We all know that Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru were executed in Episode 4 (A New Hope) - and the grizzly revolution was pivotal in convincing Luke to begin his heroic journey. We didn't see actual the event - and we didn't need to (especially in a 'kids' movie) - but I thought it would be cool to imagine how it might have played out... especially if it had introduced us to Boba Fett's character!
