Imperial Shuttle by AndyFairhurst Imperial Shuttle by AndyFairhurst
Started this a few weeks ago but decided to finish it off in light of the news that JJ Abrams is going to direct the new Star Wars film. I added a few lens flares to mark the occasion ;)

WIP stages - [link]

I used a model I have as a reference

Thanks for looking :)

You should do it! I think you can download earlier versions for free somewhere...legit versions I mean.

Hey, how did you actually create those star wars pictures again? Is there a tutorial somewhere out there to learn how to create those? I'm just wondering because I want to create my own star wars paintings in Photoshop. Thanks.

It was one of those click and make models, not quite airfix.

I lolled at the lens flair. I think JJ Abrams squealed like a little girl at the prospect of lightsaber+lens flare.

Wow that is one light watermark.

Love the simpleness of the painting. Let's just hope JJ Abrams doesn't lens flare Star Wars. It wouldn't be respectful to the series to change it up like that.

Thanks Trevor :) I reckon a little lens flare would work in space lol

I always loved the imperial shuttle's design. I was sceptical at first about Episode VII but now that Michael Arndt is writing the script (He wrote Toy Story 3 and Little Miss Sunshine) and J.J. Abrams directing it, I have hopes that it will be good, and besides, I also hope that they don't make the same mistakes that George Lucas made in the prequels like cheesy dialogue (Unlimited Powah!!) and overuse of CGI

Haha lens flairs.. You've gone above and beyond to 'celebrate' the new 'Star Wars.' I've added some apostrophes there to mark the occasion ;)
