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!

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..

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!

The first one is a battle between the Lusankya of the New Republic Forces under the command of Wedge Antilles and the Reaper, commanded by Gilad Pellaeon of the Imperial Remnant. The two SSDs hammer each other while the wreckage of the fleet carrier Endurance goes down in flames.

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.

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.

I'm a huge fan of The Clone Wars in its various animated forms, and I can never resist when an idea for a new scene hits me. With this one, I wanted to portray a hopeless war moment. An unlucky unit of Clonetroopers had found General Grievous and been completely slaughtered, save for one remaining trooper. With no hope remaining, he struggles to reach a thermal detonator before the end arrives.

I really wanted to make Grievous scary, like he was in the original Tartakovsky series. And I found the less of him I showed, the more menacing he looked. So I kept trimming down his details, making him essentially a black mass and not even showing where his hands gripped the lightsabers, but rather keep it a series of inhuman shapes.

As any fellow Star Wars fanatic knows, this year is the 30th Anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back. My favorite movie of all time.

I always thought "Empire" showed Darth Vader at his most hardcore(Brutally mauling his own son, torturing Han Solo because he enjoys it, ordering his own fleet into an asteroid field and patiently waiting as it gets beat to hell, making a habit of choking his own overly polite officers, constantly changing the terms of a deal seemingly only because he likes screwing with Lando's mind, conspiring against his own Master, and generally not giving a %&#^).

And, the moment when Vader goes in with the ground troops raiding the rebel base during the battle of Hoth. I always liked that he doesn't care that there's a warzone all around him and he's going in on foot. With this painting, I wanted to pay an homage to that scene with one of those "could have happened off-screen!" moments. The idea here is that the Walker in the center has been brought down by rebel fire, but in true Vader fashion-he just doesn't care, and is strolling straight through the warzone toward the rebel base. I really worked on the atmospheric perspective here so that it looked similar to the film's colors.

Some Star Wars Inspired picture after very long time. When I was reading very good technical website about the starwars, I've found picture of the leg and small comment of one amazing machine. This Is my vision of superheavy Imperial battle walker.
My intention was make a new design of a huge war machine, of course somehow similar to AT-AT. So I didnt have much space for experiments.
This walker much bigger than his older brother about twice in height. The desingis using some elements from the battleships of the Empire. Weapons: one turbolaser, eight heavy lasers and many heavy blaster cannons. The picture captures flawless crushign of the rebels defence positions on some cold planet (not Hoth:)). Rebellion have no weapons that can harm this machine.

The walker is based on simple 3d model(done in 1hour). The rest is playing with many layers in photoshop. the small at-st and some planes done form the reference. Picture was done half on cintiq tablet, the rest Intuos3. Time about 25-30 hours, just 2 hours a day after work.

Ok, here it is. My favourite ship form Star Wars. Its not very well-known, maybe because it was seen only for some seconds at the beginig of episode one. But i think the design of it is great. Corellian diplomatic cruiser, lost years ago on some dark planet. I hope I can make some story about it, maybe connected with some other SW pics in the future.
Strarted as a quick pic, but somehow i started to play with details so it was about 30hours at the end. Wacom intuos+photoshop as always.

A Homage to the warhammer world, especially to space marines. It captures the fierce attack of my favourite blood angels space marines. Vehicle designs based on WH40K universe. I want that everything in this picture is reddish, like the name of this marine chapter. Was fun doing it, especially the signs of the chapter. For right perspective I have used boxed 3d models. Picture has a one year, so its not new. But now I see some weak point on the city behind. All is done in photoshop.

Okay, so start playing the Imperial March on youtube, come back, and then look at it all over again for maximum effect. This image of Darth Vader and his loyal snowtroopers is 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. If all goes well, I should be able to post some more soon!

If you're interested, there's more where that came from:

A Twi'lek bounty hunter, Oskara is the second of my character designs/chapter plates for Fantasy Flight Games' "Star Wars: Edge of the Empire" Roleplaying game. They actually just announced a starter box set for the RPG that has ready-made scenarios and characters, one of which is the Lovely O here. It looks amazing, and if what I heard is correct then it will be coming out Q4 2012: [link]

And here's a link to the main game, which is currently in it's beta phase: [link] Wars: Edge of the Empire Beta

I don't want to disappoint you all with no jackass commentary on this piece. At the same time, this guy can strangle someone who displeases him from across galaxies. Now, I know he's just a floating spirit or whatever, and he's all redeemed and nice and junk. But I don't want to push my luck.

Vader may very well be my first icon of awesome. My parents tell me that Star Wars was the first movie I ever saw. And "forever did it dominate my destiny."

Chestplate by Hebrew washing machine scrapyard. I'm not even kidding. The first Vader costume was seriously cobbled together from junk, including a washing machine coin slot. The Hebrew words were the inspiration for "Sith Script" which was used for the following costumes. And the words became a prophecy, instead of, I guess "Linens and Delicates."

Here we see Grand Admiral Thrawn, deeply contemplating his strategy in navigating the contents of the Imperial Flagship's refrigerator.

"We meet again, mystery Tupperware. While I fear opening you may very well open the gates to the Hell of Fatally Malodorous Leftovers, my curiosity compels me…"

Thrawn was rushed to the infirmary after whiffing what chemists later discovered to be seven year old Gammorian crab salad.

Ok, I know he looks like Boba Fett. He's trying to look like Fett. He desperately wants, more than anything to be Fett. Ever since he was a little boy, he dreamed of it, and practiced his menacing nod in the mirror every day. His first helmet was shoddily crafted from a bucket with tin snips and a rusty hacksaw. His first bounty hunt was for "Timmy, the kid with asthma." He snuggled with a plush Darth Vader, and contracted hits on Kermit, and Mr. Bear.

But he is not Boba Fett. He's Jodo Kast. And it's no longer cute now that he's a full grown poseur extraordinaire.

His blasters don't even fire laser bolts. They fire shame and self-loathing. His jetpack is fueled with the tears of a life wasted.

However, he does win Star Wars Trivia bar night, and the bar gift certificates are almost enough to drink the regret away.
