Snap. I have a figure on my desk of this guy as well. He still remains an enigmatic character but holds a wealth of potential for many a illustration. Your work is exemplary. Thank you for sharing your talent.

You know, my boyfriend is a massive Star Wars fan and I've never heard of this guy. Does he not show up in any movies or did I overlook him somewhere?
Very cool character design for him though
love your use of texture and the strokes.

Do google him. You see him in Tatooine as he tips off stormtroopers IIRC.

Missed this one somehow. LOL I have this toy here somewhere. Along with Bossk that guy who cries when the Rancor bites it is among the most memorable side characters.

One of my favorite (and most under-rated) characters in the SW universe. I had the figurine of him years ago. It's awesome to see him brought to life by someone so talented. Garinday was one of the wealthiest spies in the known galaxy, and one of the most badass and unique looking. You've captured the essence of him perfectly.

hi m8,

Could you tell me who the guy in the back is? not Carindan =). Or is he just a Commoner?

This is absolutely fantastic, as a fan of Star Wars, as a good friend of other Star Wars painters(Jerry Vanderstelt & Rob Prior), now You as well, I can tell you, you rocked this piece hands down BIG TIME!!!

Obviously you know you nailed the lighting, and did the character major justice! when I was little, I couldn't stand this snitch at first, but now after seeing this painting, I can only wonder what lies underneath the mask.

GREAT JOB Kai!!

This guy always creeped me out. I think my brother has one of the old action figures of this guy from the 80's.

Hey- another craft related question. Have you worked with the cintiq? I'm curious about that thing. I used during a demo at siggraph 08, and I'm wondering if it actually makes life easier.

I'll take that as a compliment (cause I don't consider myself a big star wars fan) :p The art direction had asked for the artist to try and come as close to Ralph Mcquarrie type style as much as possible, which I consciously try to meet in some way. So thank you :D

It's deffinately a compliment :) Even if you're not a fan of star wars it's a challenge to capture the right feel. I think it's good to have people that are not very into star wars painting the pics, as I think big star wars fans would tend to try too hard to make it look star wars. :P Uh, hard to explain what a I mean but perhaps you understand what I mean or something close to what a I mean. xD Keep up the great work anyways!
