STAR WARS Celebrations III by AdamHughes STAR WARS Celebrations III by AdamHughes
Client: Lucasfilm
Media: Pencil, ink, and Adobe Photoshop

Going through some old hard drives, I found a few JPEGs for some old art.

This piece was done for the Art Show of STAR WARS Celebrations III in 2005. I was trying to go for that Sunday newspaper strip feel. This was the first STAR WARS piece I'd drawn since the mid-90s; I was pretty nervous and I think it shows a little. Still, it's a fun piece.

When a friend asked what the contraband in hand actually WAS, we came to the conclusion that it must be Wookiee Chow; Chewbacca appears to be gnawing on the crate.

***Update***
After Googling "companion cubes', I now know what everyone is asking. No, they are not companion cubes; those are storage crates from the original STAR WARS films.

This picture has more adventure in it than some of the SW expanded universe stuff I read when  I was younger... :D

Han was always my favorite for his cockiness and spunk. This is a perfect pic showing he's having fun under fire:-)

Faultless. You're absolutely faultless. You take characters clear in everyone's minds and you make them even more well developed. Fantastic sir, fantastic!

I love the expression on his face, especially since it doesn't look like those lasers weren't set to stun. Han is such a badass!

I'm sorry I had to say this, but when seeing this image in a small, I SWORE those canisters they were carrying were friendship cubes from portal. All they need are heat on the circles to complete the image ^^
