San Diego Comic Con 2012

SDCC looms just a few days away. I don't have a display space to tie me down, but I will be part of Del Rey's signing for Star Wars: the Essential Guide to Warfare. Friday, July 13th, from 11:00am-Noon, Del Rey Star Wars booth #2913D (outside corner of the Star Wars pavilion against the wall) you can meet me, the author, and some of the other artists.

Mean while, here are some sketches for something I've been picking away at for a while:

Still some decisions to be made, but I think it's coming along.


Essential Guide to Warfare: Mygeeto

I contributed ten pieces to Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Warfare, which came out this month. Here's how I developed one of them.

It was a half page spread -- half a page high, two pages wide -- of the battle on Mygeeto. In short the process was: thumbnails, drawing, color studies, painting. Of course it's never as simple as it sounds, but that's my story.

It makes me think I should paint more often.
