NOT the third of my Jabbas Palace postcards, but a quick side doodle of the torturous droid 8D8. Gotta love the screaming Gonk droid in this scene from ROTJ, had a lot a fun fuckin around with this. Got a couple more pics in the pipeline, maybe get another up this week, and of course the third postcard is on its way. Adios!

Yo! soooo....yup, I know I posted the original version of this poster a good few months ago...but I glanced at it the other night, and it bothered me. I think I rushed it to meet the anniversary deadline, and my original teaser image of Gum skating away from us was stronger than my final pinup of the gang, so I thought I could definitely make a good stab at fixing it up.
The main things that bugged me were lighting and the the wierd border that smacked of photoshop a little too much. So I've gone in and played around, hopefully it's more dramatic and exciting now, and just works better as a pinup. Glad I went back to it! I've put up a comparison so you can play spot the diference! Have fun!
Actually...wowzas, I just checked and I posted the original almost a year ago! Time Flies eh!

Finally getting around to putting up some concept work from the game I finished last year.
It's been out on xbox live for a few months, and was one of the most enjoyable projects I've ever had the good fortune to work on. I was lead concept, and although I occassionally got the odd concept artist to help me out, it was quite a small team, which meant I got to draw and colour a lot of the cool stuff myself. SPACESHIPS! ROBOTS! AWESOME! :)
So first up I'm gonna stick some stuff from the 'Hub Ship', basically the crashed ship wherein you start the game, and your main hub area that you return to again and again. I'm also gonna put up one of my favourite of the alternate robot characters - Issa4c. He's heavily influenced by retro 70's/early eighties robots, and basically rocks.
So I'll be back in a few days with some more stuffs, like the villains spacecraft and some more environment stuff....if you haven't tried the game go check it out .

These guys rock - literally! These guys have always been one of the coolest things about the jabba scene in Jedi, and I've based this pic on the original version, so the lyrics are what i reckon she 's singing with a little help from the internet. It's not that I don't like the special edition version, I think it's very cool, but in CG-ing Sy Snootles herself I think she lost something, ok she gained much more animation and movement, but she has a cool puppet look in the original that I referenced when sketching this up.
Plus how cool is Max Rebo! A blue elephant dude on a flashing lights organ piano bowl thing! He's the Billy Joel of Jabba's Palace! ( google it kids )
Anyway, a heck load of fun drawing these guys - now just the last of the 3 'Postcards from Jabba's Palace' to do....although I sketched up the Amanananamanaman version I am tempted to draw Hooded Luke instead, force choking a pig. hmmm....
