Hunter in the Night: Star Wars LCG - Meditation and Mastery

I have another new Star Wars piece for you today! This time around it is the Hunter in the Night Objective Card from the recently released expansion, Meditation and Mastery. Here my piece titled, Hunter in the Night...

For those of you that play the game you will know that Objective Cards have art that is thin and long that runs the length of the card. As you can see above, my art does not fit to those dimensions. When I got this assignment I worked with the art director to create a piece that fulfilled production's need as well as allowed me to create a piece that was more inline with the size and shape of work that I like to create. This did mean I was creating more image then they needed, but it was allowing me to create the image I wanted to. This all may seem weird, but I needed to do this. Here is the final drawing for Hunter in the Night...

Here is the final production card for Hunter in the Night and you can see how much the image I created was cropped down for production's needs. I delivered to them the cropped and original versions of the image to do with as they needed. While they were getting two images for the price of one, it gave me the flexibility to make something I was much more excited about working one.

I will have more info and details about this piece in the coming weeks/months when I finally get around to sharing the process for it. Until then, here are a couple image of Hunter in the Night being used as article art over on the Fantasy Flight Games website. As you can see, this piece was officially spoiled over a month ago, it has taken this long for it to finally reach the front of the blog queue!
