Star Runner

I’ve been uploading old art to my new Instagram. This one was looking a little dated so I decided to re-work it.

It’s an updated version of my Nebula Awards artwork from 2011. I’d been asked to create a kind of Star Wars / Blade Runner style bar scene, so I decided to depict a Han Solo style smuggler with a crystal to sell, and a Jabba inspired gangster who doesn’t like the price.

But, if it does kick off, his companion will have already, “shot first”.

Very well done! I see the elements of Star Wars and BR. I also see the blaster. Will he shoot first? :D

Did you come up with the characters for this scene? because I feel like I've seen the gangster somewhere before. Seriously I keep thinking about it I know I've seen the guy somewhere before but I can't put my finger on it.

The guy on the left looks kind of like you.

Nicely designed picture. I like the moody and Noir ish atmosphere. Kind of reminds me of a classic scene from an old 1940s picture, except it's all sci fi.

I could write a fun little sci-fi short story out of this picture. Its got all the elements in it to inspire. Really is a nice job. Took imagination and planning, I'm guessing.
