This is the reason you don't put a giant reactor above ground.
(The snow would actually be a half-decent cooling system underground)

No, I'm a self employed illustrator. This was a piece done for a card game licensed by Lucasfilm. So it's technically "official" Star Wars art (i.e. Lucasfilm owns it), but not commissioned directly by them.

oh interesting. Does that go for other artists who did other card art? Also, I'm curious where you? I'm out here in Northern California, near Sacramento. I'm looking for work as I'm a photographer. my work is on my blog nicolasbrownphotography.blogsp…

might you be able to help me out?

Yeah that goes for most any artist working on a licensed Star Wars product. Unfortunately, I'm in Ohio and don't know the first thing about the photography market. Sorry!

no worries. If you're in Ohio, how did you get contracted for this project? this and other pieces I'm seeing by other artists are MINDBLOWING. These moments in Star Wars are captured so excellently

I get contracted via the company that actually produces the licensed products - in this case Fantasy Flight Games. They have a few licensed Star Wars game properties that they call on many freelance artists to create art for.

When he's not stealing grails or voicing Aragog, he's nuking main reactors!

Nuking main reactors... Because they don't already run on nuclear power...

I've always wondered, what made them decide that this helmet design would work?
There's obviously no armor-benefit.

Maybe for acoustics? :lol:

JakeMurray Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Hmm not sure. If I remember right, I think a lot of the Imperial helmet designs (or at least Vader's) was based on samurai helmet shapes, right? Though I guess samurai didn't have laser blasters to contend with either haha. :)

yeah I think tht they based it on the samurai thing aswell. And let's not forget, vader would have this type of helmet aswell, if someone didn't think it was weird for Vader to move between spaceships without a mask.

I always loved how calm and businesslike he was.

When he's talking to Vader, he says "The shield will be down in moments, you may start your landing" like he's ordering lunch. XD

Amazing drawing ! You captured the feel of the original trilogy just perfectly - he looks really evil ! It must have been a coincidence, but he looks almost exactly like polish prime minister. He's the most hated person in the country so I guess it fits the character :D (here's a pic of him BTW [link])

Well he was one of the only imperial officers that didn't get strangled to death by Vader in that movie, so I guess that's pretty badass in its own right.

That , and he's one of the only that doesn't get killed ( at least not in the movies , though there is a deleted scene of the battle in which a Snowspeeder crashes in the cockpit of his AT AT >.> ) AND totally owned the Rebels on Hoth , so yeah , makes him quite badass :D

JakeMurray Featured By Owner May 7, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Haha that's true. I never thought about that. Sometimes I forget that the Rebels actually lose at Hoth. I'm just too busy basking in childhood nostalgia to pay attention to the plot!

Being a massive Imperial supporter and a generic bad guy lover , i do pay attention to such " details " :D
I mean , especially in Star Wars , i know the good guys have to win , but they always do it so easily and with so few losses it becomes boring :P
And well , the battle of Hoth is so so damn epic , you got to remember it , i remember loving the whole scene since i was a child because the Rebels lost :XD:
