Rancorous by ApneicMonkey Rancorous by ApneicMonkey
I recently received a copy of The Art and Making of The Force Unleashed from a friend working at LucasArts and it was signed by many members of the art and design team - I had the biggest shit-eating grin! :D

I've been really inspired by the work in the book and have wanted to paint something 'Star Wars' for a while now... specifically, a Rancor and a Stormtrooper.

This painting fills both of those desires! :)

Man, that Stormtrooper is so f*$#ing dead! :p

the funniest part is that the stormtrooper doesn't seem to look like he's sprinting. H looks like he's kinda just jogging away calmly.:XD: "There's a hulking monster behind me. Hmm... oh well."

ahhh, if only stormtrooper armor could taste really bad. And he better be careful. We hope the stormtrooper doesn't hurt the rancor. that could be somebody's pet.

Great lighting BTW. The reflection from each scale has amazing detail.
