EDIT: Now i remember the title. :)

Sorry for the title. I forgot the official one. Tried to imitate a Drew Struzan palette and texture.

PS:
Done for Sony Online Entertainment's Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game.

Shout out to Roger Chamberlain, Art Director for the project.

This picture exemplifies why I like star wars tech. It all looks used, beat to hell and often with little to no frills. Yet with these things they still manage to make things as distinctive and beautiful as any fancy car

So good that it made me start humming the "Imperial March" under my breath.

Lovely handcrafted lens flare and the detail on the ship is just awesome.

I've always wondered what the two large globes on either side of what I assume must be the bridge do...

Lol! Thanks.

Optical effects are my favourite to muck around with, and I'm glad it has that handmade look to go with the rest of the image.

According to a SW-nut-friend, the globes are ,"-really just sensor clusters/radomes and not shield generators like everyone thinks". That's all I remembered. Lol.
