I enjoy finding obscure
or rarely used ideas that already exist in the Star Wars Universe.
Biscuit Baron, The Sunfighter Franchise, Neks...I pulled this
visual out of the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special. The Banshee
makes its way to the central city on the planet Panna. The
planet was first (and only, as far as I know) seen in the Boba
Fett cartoon that Chewie's son watches on his view screen.
This is my favorite so far.
I really love how the engine exhaust turned out, as well as
the cloud shadows on the city and all of the colors. I was asked
where I get my cool looking planets from, and I have to admit
that I kinda cheat when it comes to those. I discovered a filter
for Photoshop that allows you to make these wonderfully rendered
planets. It's called Lunar Cell and is available for about twenty
bucks from FlamingPear.com.
They have several other cool filters as well. Check it out.
