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".

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 the last piece from Warfare. The Hutts now maintain fleets of warships, shifting their philosophy of economic dominance to a more military one, ever since their Empire was almost destroyed by the Yuuzhan Vong invasions.

Everything in this is completely new and never-before-seen. I was given the honor of designing the various Hutt ships from scratch based on relatively vague descriptions from the novels. You can see 4 classes of warships in here; frigate, destroyer, transport/carrier and battle-cruiser and all of them have the distinctive red sails, which I took inspiration form Jabba's Sail Barge. Admiring his fleet is a Hutt commander and his cronies.

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.

Battle-worn company of walkers moving quickly through a narrow pass.

I added my usual preference of wargear to the AT-STs, obviously keeping canon in mind and always making sure that whatever I've added have somehow appeared in SW stories at some point. In this image I thought it would be nice to show a different loadout for the different walkers in a company. The light footed scout to the left of the image sporting long range mortars bolted to the upper rear of the turret, communications antenna and 6-pack dumbfire rockets for harrassment. Also small, lightweight reactive armour plates to cover the vulnerable battery packs on the underside of the turret.

The main lead unit just has to have a nonchalant cool-headed gunner who is probably soaking in the sunrise :p, and it also sports 2 rotating grenade launcher mounts on its lower cheeks, plus a winch system under the main chin gun and shielded weapon systems.

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 think both of my Lando illustrations were revealed around the same time back when Edge of the Empire came out, so I decided to post this smaller LCG version at a later date. 

It's a later date!

This one is from the Edge of Darkness expansion:http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_npm_sec.asp?eidm=184&esem=1&epmi=s

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:

The Imperials gather their forces in a last attempt against the New Republic in gaining crucial sectors of space in the outer rim worlds of the galaxy. Only winning the battle ahead can sway the balance of power.

The Old Republic is no more and the Imperial order rules the galaxy under control of Emperor Palpatine. Wave upon wave of ships enter space combat for the first time in an attempt to end the Rebellion against the newly formed Galactic Empire.

The Empire is hunting out Rebels in the sector, interference from the asteroid field and rings surrounding the planet are disrupting the Stardestroyers readings. Two Tydirium shuttles equiped with with advanced sensors are dispatched along with tie fighter escorts.

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.

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.

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.

Another piece for the Star Wars LCG. This is actually my most recent one, just spoilered on FFG's website.

One very interesting facet of painting Star Wars game art is that we get to paint scenes that were never filmed or that were filmed differently, sort of an extra 'Director's cut'.

This is an illustration I painted for STAR WARS: X-Wing, TIE Phantom Expansion Pack.  

I like the design of the TIE Phantom a lot!  I think it's pretty cool.  It's also lethal and dangerous looking, so I wanted to capture that aggressiveness in my composition as it comes out of cloak  ;)

Cheers for looking :)

Armed with 2 small triple barrel ion cannons, 2 medium single ion cannon and 8 dual barrel turbolasers the Dagger class corvette sole purpose is to hunt and destroy fast ships like the blockade runner. Fast and agile it sees action against both pirates, smugglers and rebels alike.

Final version :) I hope everyone likes how it turned out. It is the best Star Wars design I made thusfar in my opinion.

Final version of the Vindicator Class light carrier.
This ship is capable to carry half a dozen of squadrons along with an decent defensive/offensive capability.

Armed with 8 dual medium turbolasers, 18 point defense lasers and 5 quad lasers (against those pesky A wings) the 5 times bigger then the Dagger Class heavy corvette volume wise. In length is still quite small compared to a Imperial Star Destroyer only being around 250 to 275 meters

Final version of the Frigate. Armed with 4x4barrel turbo lasers, 4 missile tubes and 6 pop up laserturrets it also has a small hangar bay like its bigger brother the IS. It is only able to carry 4 Tie's or 2 Tie Interceptors.

In general these ships are used as escort units meant to defend convoys and stations against pirate or rebel attacks.
