A packaging illustration for the Star Wars miniatures line entitled "Galaxy at War".

All of these SW's pieces are painted around 11x17" size. This piece was mostly acrylic. I think I used a few subtle oil washes here and there, and of course you can see some colored pencil in the background.

*** I have archival PRINTS in stock of many of my works. Please feel free to send a note if there is a particular one that interests you.

To view the pencil sketch and background information please visit my blog. [link]

General Grievous!! That happens to be my favorite Starwars character, and I'm tickled to see this rendition of him! That's good you gave him two different color lightsabers; If I recall correctly his hobby was collecting them from fallen Jedi. Nice work.

this man is a lot more honorable than the jedi make him look. he hates them because they helped defend the species that tried to enslave them. when grievous drove them back to their own system the jedi aided in the defence of his enemies. i say his hate of them is justified. why did his race sworn enemy need be a giant mantis though?
