Luke Skywalker - Defender of the Cause by JakeMurray Luke Skywalker - Defender of the Cause by JakeMurray
Piece done for Fantasy Flight Games' new "Star Wars: Age of Rebellion" Roleplaying core book! I like to imagine that Luke is protecting Echo Base from a whole army of Wampas. ;)

In the book "Darksaber", Luke really DID defend the abandoned Echo Base against an army of wampas, led by the one whose arm he'd cut off years ago!

Seriously!

"The wampa appeared to be sentient, as in the succeeding years she became head of a band of other wampas, organizing them into a group capable of attacking the hunters who arrived on the world, even devising how to stealthily break into Echo Base. When Skywalker returned to Hoth in 12 ABY with Callista Ming, the wampa recognized him, and tried to kill him again. The wampa was slain by Luke in the battle."

Rob Caswell and other artists from the 90's inspired me throughout my childhood. I guarantee, as awesome as your art and the art done by other artists hired by FFG for their Star Wars products is, it will inspire a whole new generation of fans. :) Thanks for all the awesome pieces you are doing for the games, and I look forward to more work in the future! :D

Also, lightsaber-wielding Wampas would be awesome, but what about the force of lightsaber-wielding Taun-Tauns that the Rebels surely had in reserve? I mean, I hear they have purple lightsabers. Purple!

Thank you very much for the kind words! I was always blown away by Hugh Fleming's Star Wars posters and comic covers as a kid in the 90s, thinking, "There's no way I could do anything as cool as this!" I still think that. But if I've inspired even just one kid out there with my work the way he inspired me, then I'm incredibly humbled. :)

As for lightsaber-wielding Taun-Tauns, the Rebels did try that. But for reasons unknown, the Taun-Tauns couldn't seem to anything with them except accidentally disembowel themselves - which is what inspired Han Solo to create the Taun-Taun sleeping bag seen in Episode V. Useful, to be sure. But not really in the ways you would want. ;)

No problem. I love the stuff you've made for Edge of the Empire. Did you do any paintings for the X-wing game?

Hehe, I wish I could afford your rates so I could pay you to paint a bunch of Taun-Taun Jedi fighting a group of sith Wampas. XD

Thanks again. I've got a few pieces in some upcoming X-Wing expansions; A couple cards in the YT-49 Decimator, IG-2000, and (I believe) the Rebel Aces expansions. Can't show 'em yet though. :)

Aaaaawwww....

Well, I'm sure I'll enjoy looking at them. And I'm pretty sure I'll be able to pick out which ones you painted. :)

BTW, it's great that most of the guys working on the art in FFG's games and the older games I used to play are on DA. I really like being able to tell you I love your work without having to chance that you'll be at a con I'm attending or trying to make my schedule coincide with that con.

Wampas sound a bit too easy =) How abt an AT-AT task force ? ;)

Can we just give all the wampas lightsabers instead? Hahaha. OH! Or have a bunch of AT-ATs carrying payloads of lightsaber wielding wampas! I mean I definitely think the Empire could have been more creative with their offensive strategies.

Thank you very much. :) I will say that Mark Hamill is always one of the most difficult likenesses for me to paint correctly, so I can't say it took as much talent as it did a lot of banging my head against the wall hahaha.

Fantastic work! Can't wait for this book too.

Then suddenly we realize the wampas are all armed with lightsabers too.
