Snowtrooper Captain leading a charge. I was really inspired by alot of Japanese model kit box art when I did this, and I was hoping to bring some of that 'no-nonsense photojournalistic' look to this image. Like as though you were there in the trench next to them.

As always, my favourite characters to paint are the incidental ones in the background.. I always think they end up having the most natural poise and story. I also homaged a bit of Jin Roh in the way he held his MG34- i mean Blaster... by the bipod.

Also, now that I'm looking at it again after so long.. those explosions do seem a bit huge. Maybe the rebels are packing some serious heat. Whatever.

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

I remember seeing The ESB as a kid in the movies. The Battle of Hoth was the most spectacular thing I had ever seen. It lasted so brief and the snow troopers along with the other Imperial Stormtroopers got only a brief showing. Great job at capturing what we could only imagine!

You have captured everything you wished with this pic but a lot more. It is striking, bold, attractive, and very realistic; it could be any nation's troops in the heat of battle in the coldest of climates.

I love the pose, the way you do the instrumentation, the wow of the spectacle and the honesty of what this all entails.

If there is a gripe its this - I wish Star Wars was like this and not the F**king kiddie advert that it has become.

Seeing this makes me weep because Star Wars could have been this.

Excellent sir

So great! I like all your Starwars Artworks, but have no time to comment them all at the moment. Your paintings are so dynamic and full of action while paintet with love for the details. Brilliant work from my point of view.
