Sonic Blaster by ukitakumuki Sonic Blaster by ukitakumuki
Hi all! Long time no post...

IG88 kicking ass with his sonic blaster. (i dunno if that's canon, doubt it...but whose to say that an assassin droid won't update his arsenal right?)

Anyways I thought it'd be a good time to restart the posting habit with some of my recent (well.. since 08 hur hur) Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game work, done for Sony Online Entertainment.

[Speaking of which, did you guys hear about the "new Planetside game" announcement btw? I am freaking out about it!]

Always good to review old work too I guess. Its a shame some of my favourite cards didn't make it to the showcase, or I was too late to save them before they got taken down/replaced by newer card sets. Argh! Getting into the showcase is pretty much the only way anyone will view the artwork and knowing who did it aside from playing the game itself. Not to mention the fact that the image dimensions and crop is defined by Lucasarts themselves.


PS:
Work is copyright to Lucasarts Entertainment (explains why you don't see signatures anywhere on the work as well...). You can find the higher res wallpaper versions here: [link]

Sonic weapons certainly are canon in the Star Wars universe. I don't know what they actually -do-, but who cares? This picture rocks!

IG88 is one of my favorite star wars characters, and yes it definitely would get more badass by getting more powerful weps

Love the image~
though I'm a bit confuse about the distance of the figures
The guy on the right seems really close to us and yet his foot looks close to the explosion?

Or maybe he is just really big? :P sorry I don't know every StarWars character great job never the less!!

bad separation of values on my end. The dirt that shares the same tone as the foot was meant to illustrate the point that the shockwave blew some dirt right up to the foreground. (or at least to his right leg as you noted). Ultimately I think its the more graphic illustration style I chose that makes perceiving distances a problem. Or maybe not being lazy with the dirt brushes would have helped.. like angling them towards the direction of movement would give the impression of the mud being thrown at us- instead of just applying flat 'brush spatter'. Thanks for the input! Always trying to be better. :D

IG88 was massively over looked in the films, he should have had a bigger role.

I feel that his pose is a little too human like, still a great piece though!

ukitakumuki Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
thank you kindly, and yeah I agree about his pose but I felt the nature and theme of the picture called for something more dramatic and fun. There were 2 other IG88 pictures I made.. in a far grittier and realistic setting and in his usual stiff robot pose, but kicking ass nontheless. One even had him reflecting blaster bolts with his claw-palms.

are we going to get to see these? if they are not complete works they can always go in your scrapbook, it would be nice to see them either way.

not possible, lucas forbids it. The only way anyone can see the works is if they play the card game (and even then you wouldn't know who did it because lucas forbade signatures too) or if the works were featured on the SOE gallery as a wallpaper. :/

I love the rendering of the explosion and the expression of the soldiers are like "WTF just hit us?!"

nope. Contributing artists are only allowed to upload on couple of conditions: 1) it can be found in the wallpaper gallery on the SOE SWGTCG site 2) its in the exact dimensions as the wallpapers and contains the watermarks that they have on the wallpapers 3) no personal signatures, because the works belong to lucas.
