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.

This is what the Storm Troopers should've been. The Empire's elite troops.

Scout troopers are a personal favorite too. What is the point of having blinders on a hover bike anyways?

I think it was meant to be symbolise a racehorse in that sense? Just setting their sights on a target and never letting up. Often to certain explosive death lol 

Thats my theory anyway!

You sir are doing an excellent job capturing the grit of the original starwars.

As a child watching the films Scout troopers had always been my favorite, and like you said hard to see with those blinders on, but still I'd always been impressed with their kind of sleek look and clean lines, add them to a speeder bike and my seven-year old heart had been captured. Thanks so much for posting such a great picture!

This is a side of the SW universe you don't see very often. Usually SW pictires are more... clean for a lack of better word.
Here I can actually see the brutality of the battle, it looks almost W40K-like. I like it.

Really good work here. Almost looks like something from Earth.
Except Star Wars is regularly accepted as a lesser ground force. Supported by said blinders and the chicken walker. Walkers aren't really armored, and these have limited weapons effective in this environment.
