Here's the final image that this progression is leading up to.This image done for WotC / Lucasfilm  minifigures game was also inspired by Ep III.This NASA pic was used in the WotC image and this one.And this NASA photo too...I rearranged the base shots for this pic.And layed in underpaint to put the Corescant light overI did a series of blu-ray grabs of EP3, which works, because Lucasfilm allows use of their copyrightAnd pieced the lights together, warping to suit the image....and more.then I began grabbing ships from the blu-ray, and adding them...To get the right composition, and plan around the gutter placement.I wanted the twirling Anakin Starfighter from a view we didn't know yetAnd this is the pic I liked best.Here's the digital pic with the Starfighter placed....and buzz droid missiles added.Here's the draft I submitted to Del Rey, with the title block laid in.I then shifted Anakin out of the gutter, and added Obi Wan per direction by Del ReyHere is the final digital version prior to paint.I painted the pic, and then photographed it for print, just like a traditionally painted illustration.This is the final image for print.
