Project: Droids - illustrated book
Client: Del Rey (Random House)
'Essential Droids' was probably the book on which we had the most fun creating some of the most iconic figures from the Lucas Film universe of Star Wars.
Following the 'Weapons & Technology' book our workflow process for producing high resolution full colour renders had been firmly established. All illustrations required ultimate approval from Lucas Film, whom were exacting in their requirements.
Over 90 full colour illustrations would take 5 illustrators around 10 months to complete. High polygonal count and high resolution textures were both key to obtaining the clients realistic look to the illustrations.
