Cleaning up an old concept sketch of Darth Malak from Knights of the Old Republic. One direction the initial design went in eventually led to Darth Malgus. But we played around with ideas until I pushed away from the table and left it to others

It is an interesting genealogy. Prior to the prime move we did at Bioware with KOTOR there was little to no creative real estate staked out in that era. A few isolated cases visually but quite scarce. We were put in charge of driving the stake into that space and while I might approach a few elements differently today knowing what I know Star Wars for the most part designs itself and you're along for the ride. The Old Republic is no exception. Many of the designs we broke the spine on and their ancestors are still used in the design universe today, ie Malgus amongst others. Privileged to have been a part of it and to see where it's gone and what it's become in the meantime. Pretty amazing.
