The WIP´s are over now! Finally! This is the final drawing of my Imperial Star Destroyer (Allegiance class) :D. This drawing took me almost 2 months of hard work. I don´t know how long in hours, sorry. I used several references to make this drawing come alive. As first the amazing Star Destroyer [link] originally created by Ansel Hsiao (Fractialsponge). I used also a reference of him for the Imperial shuttle [link]

As first I started with the Destroyer and I thought I would get nuts drawing this beast. But later I decided that the Destroyer itself would look boring and so I added some planets and a Nebula. My last add was the huge planet in front (Wayland). I got the idea to all this as I remembered one of my favorite novels from Star Wars EU. The Thrawn trilogy ;). Who knows the novels and - or the comics will know what I´ve drawn here ;).

The drawing itself is 1/3 larger than A2 (my biggest since over 3 years) and all is done entirely in graphite. The starfield was created with some kind of white gel pen.

I hope you like how this one turned out. I really like it that´s for sure.
So last but not least watch it in fullview and become nuts :evillaugh: :).

WIP´s can be found all in my scrapfolder and you can also watch a short video on Youtube [link]

That´s all. Thanks for looking and everything. Allan

PS: The planet is slightly inspired by the Mars.

Wow it got a Daily Deviation :wow::faint:. Thank you very much ~Stevebot-7 and *bloknayrb for suggesting it :). And many thanks to^Voyager212 for featuring it.

The Chimaera.

Grand Admiral Thrawn is a fantastic character, and C'boath a good one. 

Fantastic series, and wonderful art. Well done.

(Curiosity question, have you read the two part sequel?)

I hope Ansel Hsiao will give us models for the Defender-class Assault Carrier, the Majestic-class heavy Cruiser, and the Warrior-class Gunship.

Also I hope he redesigns the Liberator-class Cruiser, the Dauntless-class Heavy Cruiser, and Bulwark-class Battle Cruiser.

Star Destroyers have such a strange and hard-to-capture geometry to them, I'm a tad envious of your success in doing so!  And Allegiance class, too.  You don't see too many of them around, do you?  Especially not in this level of detail!
