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.
