Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 398

Wednesday, January 9, 2019

Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

In stores today! Full credits here. With these Star Wars covers, one of my main concerns is getting things to be "screen accurate." That usually entails plucking photos from many different sources, almost none of them from the actual screen. The best reference is usually from statues, particularly from Sideshow. It's rare that I don't have at least 1 photo from them for any cover. There are also a ton of 3D models at Sketchfab, especially useful for weapons and accessories.
