Star Wars: Edge of the Empire

You might remember that in my coverage of Gen Con 2012 I mentioned that the good folks at Fantasy Flight Games announced a brand new project, Star Wars: Edge of the Empire RPG. I point this out again because one of my pieces was used as part of the announcement art... which mean I can share it with you! Here are some Star Wars monsters...

Before anyone nuts up, I know Trandoshans are not monsters, they are in fact just about my favorite Star Wars alien race (Trandoshan and Mon Calamari are tops with me!). I played a Trandoshan in Star Wars Galaxies and the only Star Wars costume I ever made for myself (with the brilliant help of my wife) was a Bossk suit. Ever since FFG announced they had the Star Wars license I had been patiently twiddling my thumbs and whispering to everyone at FFG that I needed to paint some Trandoshans ...and it finally happen! This piece is actually about the walker in the background, hence the title, AT-PT. I was up front with my art director that I was going to paint some Trandoshans and they will have the needed walker behind them... and she was totally fine with it (THANKS ZOE)!

Once the book officially comes out early next year I will of course share the remainder of my work from the book as well as share all the drawings, processes walk throughs, and goofy reference photos of me doing my best Trandoshan impression! Something to look forward to!

That is all for another exciting Monday on the blog, see you back here on Wednesday! Until then...

For more samples of my work or to contact me regarding my availability head over to my website:


  1. Oh, man! Those're some absolute beauts of trandoshans. And the camouflaged armour's ace! Good to know there's at least one talented fan giving them their due.

    1. Thanks, Joshua! Really appreciate it! :D I love me some Trandosans and I hope there are more for me in the future.
