SWGTCG: Adaptive Biology by ukitakumuki SWGTCG: Adaptive Biology by ukitakumuki
Now that Galaxies is officially defunct, I thought it safe to post some of my favourite illustrations here for posterity sake..!

Working on this franchise for close to 2 years really helped me grow as a creative and allowed me to explore many aspects of the craft-- its not often you get to play the role of illustrator, story-teller and designer within a single commission. It was truly rewarding in hindsight and more often that not, a very humbling experience when you witness the sheer quality and passion of other fellow creatives working on the same project, really inspires you to stretch yourself beyond the usual bounds!

I love this picture, and I’m a huge fan of Star Wars…but I don’t recognize the species of alien shown. Is there a name for it?

unfortunately no, the story as per the brief is a rebel infiltration group stumbling upon this creature, i forget its name in the SW universe. I just rolled with it and trying to craft a narrative with the characters, some body language, and general mood of (as other deviants have posted here before) "KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!!! :o" hehe

I understand where you are coming from - its not the money, its the skills earned, and they are greater than gold.

Excellent stuff!

Mainly for the sake of accuracy I have to point some things out.
They see it, it sees them. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say it's hostile. This is not the time to tell your men to "Stop" (the raised fist). This is the time to say "Oh hell, oh hell, shoot it now, shoot it now."
There could be more going on here than we realize, but the audience has only what they see to guide them. There could also have been context clues surrounding this in the game, in which case I'm just wrong to have mentioned any of it.

To clarify, I didn't really intend for it to be the moment after they realise each other. More of the second the creature looks up, that awkward moment when the leader still has his signal hand up to get his guys in firing position to strategise. Of course its all going to hell now, as you said :p
