Mos Eisley Morning

By shoomlah

oh man, almost forgot to post my finished piece for the Star Wars: A Saga Revisited show at Gallery Nucleus this past weekend!  My piece sold, but I’m pretty sure they’re going to have prints available at some point in the near future.

adored the Tales from Mos Eisley Cantina/Jabba’s Palace books as a kid, so I wanted to capture some of that same day-to-day vibe - the hustle and bustle of a typical Mos Eisley morning, when you don’t have scoundrels storming in and mussing up the place.

looks like cell shading. do you use 3D models or pictures as a reference?

I do! I modeled a rough version of this sucker in Maya to figure out camera angles.

Very solid. Even nailed the double shadows.  ;)
And thank goodness you didn't shoehorn in any of that silly Special Edition nonsense.  ;p

DD well deserved!

This makes me want to teleport from my computer screen directly into the arid, bustling, spaceport. Even if it is a "wretched hive of scum and villainy". 

Fantastic work!

even Mos Eisley in the early morning looks warmer and frendlier, before the explosion of bustling life in the streets :D  

after all, it may be the "most wretched hive of scum and villainy" but for its inhabitants, it's still home :D         

i must look after that book, now i got curious XD

I can't like this enough. It's beautiful and perfectly captures Tatooine (and hits my Star Wars nostalgia RIGHT THERE). Wonderful!

Oh, wow, love it!  I really like this style, the sort of comic-book hard lines with the softer shadings and colors.  Really gorgeous!
