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!

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.

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".

Difficult to find models of this little Clone Wars era fighter so was pleasantly surprised at how this turned out :)

Predecessor of the ISD and somewhat smaller, it was just as heavily armed and equally dangerous!!

Another livestream semi-speed paint. Tried out the flagship again, not perfect yet, I'll have to 3D model it to get it right. Should I spend another sitting on this to get a fleet in there?

The command flagship for the Protectorate fleet.
-It's dual hull design aids in redundancy should it ever be found in heavy fighting. The lower hull is largely filled out by a massive staging hangar for defensive ships and a sizable ground force.
The upper hull houses the majority of the crew, who's accommodations are considered lavish for a space vessel, this for the large number of officers often on board.
-The ship is also equipped with extensive processing and maintenance facilities, it can support it's crew and provide extensive repair capabilities for local forces when planet based facilities are not available.
-4 main rail guns along it's 2 noses are it's main anti warship armament. These can fire a variety of munitions, guided or not, at firing rates up to high enough that more than one round can be moving down a rail at once, if needed.
-Warships all carry a common tech shielding that disperses energy weapons, this is why most ships use projectile weapons. Should an enemy ships shielding be disrupted, this flagship contains a laser generation system. 2 focusing turrets, one top and bottom, can fire on vulnerable ships to quickly destroy them.
-12 massive turrets each with 2 guns play a pivotal role in laying down spread fire on distant or closing ships, this ensures a much higher hit probability against evasion maneuvering.
-Numerous point defenses guard against small ships and fighters, some medium sized defense weapons can also join in the spread fire patterns against targets.
-Due to it's massive size, it is unable to make effective evasive maneuvers against enemy fire except in very long range engagement from glancing shots. Thanks to the Elemental program however, along with basic energy weapon shielding, this ship also uses forcive shields to deflect projectile weapons when possible. It's onboard ground forces will often include a number of Elementals which can join in on defensive actions.
-For all it's abilities as a warship, such a large investment in a single ship would lead it to be a prime target in war, so it largely spends it's time in friendly territory making use of it's command and combat staging power.

Commissioned by :icondimsdale00: *Dimsdale00. A painting to go with his kitbash model of the same design.

I was looking forward to working on this piece. While it's not much like my personal design style I've always been interested in retro ships that have the modular feel of our modern space stations.

My process for this piece started with a 3D base model on the ships (as I do with most vehicles) and 2 photos of mars for the planet, tons of paintover and sore fingers following :)

Based upon the succesful Baud class subspace relay ship, Starfleet Command issued the construction of a starship dedicated for espionage and cyberwarfare. The resulting Enigma class surveyor was equipped with a large subspace communications array and the most up-to-date computer system eclisped only by the Excelsior class a decade later. Whilst relatively fast and equipped for hostilities, Enigmas usually relied on the escort of Saladin class destroyers.

The ship in this image, the USS Mitnick, participated in the Invasion of Kzinhome during the Federation-Kzinti War. Although not recieving such orders, the Captain of the starship, Larry Halverson (also known as Master_Elephant in the hacker community) ordered his ship to join the Federation fleet. The crew of the Mitnick personally declared cyberwar upon the Kzinti, managing to scramble the whole of Kzinhome's communications systems via logic bombs. This act enabled the spearhead of the Federation fleet to cut through most of the Kzinti home system's defence outposts...

A mobile transmitter array, useful where subspace radio system is not developed.

Also, testbed for my new set of textures :D

BTW, if you know why I named the ship like that, don't be afraid to tell :D

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.

Used a number of photos as a base for this one, namely random models of AT-AT/STs from hobbyist/stock sites. They are all heavily modified of course. I've also added some details that I often add to AT-ST's that I paint- commander's cupola with blaster mount, searchlights, shielded weapons, bolt-on skirting to protect the batteries at the rear.

For the art direction in this image, I was really inspired by the cinematography at the end of "The Mist". It feels somewhat majestic and dreamy, but also coupled with tension, knowing that horror and chaos is not far away.

Do first contact situation ever go peacefully? Of course they don't because that would be boring.
Anyway what your looking at is a first contact situation between the Humans and the first alien race to go into the game Novus Aeterno the Verunas. I have shown some of their ship designs recently and this is the first full illustration with them in so it was nice to paint something other than Human V Human.

The Verunas aren't very friendly they are the most advanced race in the game and they know it, they are big headed both physically and mentally.

Also this painting will cover a 20ft wall at out booth at PAX in April which will be rather cool to see.

Enjoy

The latest illustration for the MMORTS game Novus Aeterno. Having spent the last month or 2 working on ship concepts and skins it was nice to break loose and paint another huge space battle. Since we have new models for just about everything now it made sense to paint an updated image.
The foreground ships consist of some Dreadnoughts (the tall big things) a few Battleships (Smaller vertical ships with an angled lower section) 2 Basilisk Capitol ships (the 2 giant things in the top left and bottom right corners) and a Laminar Capitol ship (the large ship just above the massive explosion firing off a lot of rounds)

That big explosion was caused by a rather well placed shot by the top left Basilisk right down the barrel of an enemy Basilisk, the resulting explosion was pretty big. The other Capitol ship in the right lower corner was quite lucky compared, a distant Manticore Capitol ship, which is a huge prototype laser cannon with engines, just grazed the ships sides, melting away layers of hull and ripping the shield.

Enjoy :ahoy:

New image from the graphic novel Telikos Protocol, visit the Facebook page to find out more: [link]

Whilst working on one of the pages this image stood out as being too awesome to keep under wraps until issue one is released, so we decided to throw it out there.
It shows two of the orbital rail gun platforms that orbit Earth used to safe guard it from asteroids, they are very big and very powerful. Enjoy :)

The most awkward father-son family programme ever!

Anyway, I had this scene in my mind since I finished the TIE fighter. Of course, I had to build Vader's TIE as well. I also built an alternative set of textures for the X-Wing to represent Luke's classic Red Five. The trench? Greebles. Lots of greebles :D
