Star Wars Insider #66 - The Art of Shaak Ti -- Week One: Thumbnail, Rough Sketch and Pencil Art

I've been currently illustrating for each of issue of Star Wars Insider for their recurring HoloNet News feature. In these semi-monthly updates the current, ongoing story of the Clone Wars is being fleshed out via Republic and Separatist news feed articles. For issue #66 of Insider one of the news stories I was required to illustrate featured the heroic Jedi Master Shaak Ti and the duplicitous Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. I also included a few other of my favorite Jedi characters into the illustration to set the scene.

These were my art notes I was provided for the illustration:
2. PALPATINE REWARDS JEDI EFFORTS Supreme Chancellor Palpatine bestowing the Medallion of Honor to Avan Post (deceased) and Shaak Ti amid a grove of ch'hala trees (see attached reference) in an open air hall of the Jedi Temple (ch'hala trees are mentioned in The Last Command).
The following artwork is my initial thumbnail drawing, rough sketch and finished pencil art for the illustration.

Next week we'll take a look at my final inks and the first stages of digital color for this artwork. See you next time!
