Star Wars Essential Guide – Droids

Project:  illustrated book

Client: Del Rey (Random House)

Date: 2007

Essential Droids was the most fun we had creating and re-creating some of the most iconic figures from the Lucas Film universe of Star Wars.

Following on from the Weapons & Technology guide our workflow process for producing high resolution full colour renders had been firnly 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 tectures were both key to obtaining the clients realistic (used and not out of the box) look to the illustrations.
