This has been one of the most ambitious projects I've ever worked on, especially one of this size. Being that I've been a huge Star Wars fan all my life, I've started to consider the possibilities of trying to break into the Star Wars comic industry as an ink artist. So I've been working on this as a possible portfolio piece. The line work is about 85% done, still more figures and detail I need to add before I throw down flat colors. But to me, this piece is a way I can see a much darker and grittier Star Wars universe that I've always wanted to come to life. One that explored the empire and their secret projects like the Dark Trooper phase three program. To also explore the rebellion and show that during the galactic civil war, they would use old super battle droids and battle droid units to help them fight. It's was an interesting time so in this piece I wanted to capture that. And in excitement for Rogue One, I added a deathtrooper and the other stormtrooper varients in.
