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 was another piece that was done purely for the fans. It's from Force Heretic of the New Jedi Order series and it shows the Jedi Expedition led by Grand Master Luke Skywalker exchanging cordial gestures with former enemy and renown Imperial ace pilot, Baron Soontir Fel. He's one of my favorite EU characters mostly because he's an upstanding Imp and the Empire's equivalent of Alliance ace, Wedge Antilles, whom I love.

Fel here is part of the Chiss Expansionary Defense Force but was also formerly a commanding officer in Thrawn's Empire of the Hand before its dissolution....or absorption by the Chiss Ascendancy. The Jedis are on the Chiss homeworld of Csilla and they are on an expedition in search of the mysterious sentient planet, Zonama Sekot, which they believe is the key to defeating the Yuuzhan Vong.

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!

This scene is found in a short story by Timothy Zahn called Mist Encounter and its one of my favorite fan pieces. Here Captain Voss Parck of the Victory Class Star Destroyer, Strikefast, and Colonel Barris meets Mitth'raw'nuruodo (Thrawn) for the first time. Following this event Thrawn joins the Empire and eventually becomes the Grand Admiral we all know and love, and also founder of the Empire of the Hand.

If you look closer you'll also notice that the clone troopers are wearing hybrid, transitional armor, a combination of phase II and the new stormtrooper armor.

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.

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:

Another small one from the latest Force Pack, "A Dark Time", where Luke finds an unpleasant surprise on Tatooine.

Painted over a year and a half ago, this was my first Mara Jade piece for FFG's Star Wars games. It actually appeared in the Beta book for those few who were able to grab one, but now with the Balance of the Force expansion she's finally in the LCG. I still remember reading the Thrawn trilogy when they came out, and she's been one of my favorite characters ever since.

Another piece painted for the Star Wars LCG by Fantasy Flight Games.
I am told this one had a brief appearance as the titular 'Luke Skywalker' card during the first GenCon playtesting.

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'.

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.

For the recently announced "Onslaught at Arda" adventure supplement to Fantasy Flight Games' "Star Wars: Age of Rebellion" role playing game. I'm pretty sure my fear of falling would prevent me from being any sort of useful stormtrooper. :)

Well, it was announced today, so I think it is safe to post here. ;-) A quick Promo painting I did last week for an upcoming book by John Jackson Miller for Del Ray.
More here:
[link]

This is about a 4 hour painting (spread out over a few days or so).
EDIT: I should also mention that after an initial b/w rough-- I did an INTENSE study of Ewan McGregor on as many films as possible... My initial sketch had fallen flat on capturing either Ewan or Alec's Obi Wan likeness, so I obsessed with a quest to understand the anatomy of Ewan McGregor's face and expressions.

Most of the time, we artists will seek out references of people likenesses in the same pose we are about to draw.. But I could NOT --for the life of me-- FIND a pose of McGregor in any film that matched what I needed to show here. So what you have, is a very careful freehand rendition "imagined" in that pose by cross referencing MANY photos of Ewan's face, and how light and shadow reflect off of it in various environments. So yeah-- While the initial painting was about 4 hours, there was a lot longer in side sketching and studying of this man's face... I don't think I've ever went that deep before in a portrait.
