Star Wars Essential Guides Series

Project: Weapons & Technology - illustrated book

Client: Del Rey (Random House)

Date: 2004

Following on from the success of the 'Vehicles & Vessels' book Ballantine decided to move up a gear and produce this book using 3D imagery.
The idea was to move forward from an 'illustrated' feel of the previous book to a more photo-realistic look (dirt and all).
Over 130 full colour illustrations would take 5 illustrators around 9 months to complete. High polygonal count and high resolution textures were both key to obtaining the clients realistic look to the illustrations.
