Star Wars - Speeder Bike Cross-section

In this series I will show the three stages of creating a traditional art work for the best selling Star Wars Increadible Cross Sections series of books, 1st showing final pencil stage, secondly the final ink and finally the painted artwork. It was painted in gouache which took a little over 4 very long days to paint and measures 45 cm across. This was a technical measured drawing on an art board with a smooth hot press finish so I can ink and paint on the surface, the entire art took 14 long days to create. The ink stage is my favourite.

Star Wars:  of 3, 74-Z Speeder Bike pencil stage. Although there were several stages to go through including choosing a view that will fit on the page best and would show off as much as machinery as possible here is the final pencil art.

Star Wars: 2 of 3, this is the final ink work before painting the Aratech Repulser Company 74-Z Speeder Bike, I add more detail free-hand onto of the pencil work at this stage.  I also hide a horse logo in all my artworks, you can see it on the tool roll.
