Star Wars Insider #66 - The Art of Shaak Ti -- Week One: Thumbnail, Rough Sketch and Pencil Art
I'm currently busy this winter illustrating new projects for Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and my new comic book series for IDW Publishing, Spike Vs. Dracula. You can view my cover artwork for the first issue right here and be sure to check out my News section for more info. New articles, reviews and tutorials for Comics 101 will return in 2006 so enjoy this look back at one of my favorite features. Happy Holidays!For recent issues of Star Wars Insider I've illustrated the recurring HoloNet News feature. In these semi-monthly updates the current, ongoing story of the Clone Wars is being fleshed out via Republic and Separatist news feed articles. For issue #66 of Insider one of the news stories I was required to illustrate featured the heroic Jedi Master Shaak Ti and the duplicitous Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. I also included a few other of my favorite Jedi characters into the illustration to set the scene.
These were my art notes I was provided for the illustration:
2. PALPATINE REWARDS JEDI EFFORTS Supreme Chancellor Palpatine bestowing the Medallion of Honor to Avan Post (deceased) and Shaak Ti amid a grove of ch'hala trees (see attached reference) in an open air hall of the Jedi Temple (ch'hala trees are mentioned in The Last Command).The following artwork is my initial thumbnail drawing, rough sketch and finished pencil art for the illustration.
