the-tarkin-galleryThe man. The myth. The legend. Tarkin started off as one of the major villains in first Star Wars movie. Yet with his untimely death, he sort of slipped away into the background. Stories of Tarkin have been few and far between. It wasn’t until Tarkin’s reappearance in Star Wars: The Clone Wars that he became an active character again in the galaxy far, far away. Now with James Luceno writing an entire novel dedicated to the character, Tarkin is back in the spotlight.

To help highlight his character even more, we combed the internet in search of artwork depicting the man himself. Of course one cannot look at Tarkin without seeing the actor who played him on screen, the legendary Peter Cushing. While not every artist has endeavoured to capture Cushing’s likeness, they’ve all played a part in shaping his legacy. From his skeletal features to his iconic hand gestures, Cushing’s affectations have become an inseparable part of the character itself.

It is without further ado that we present the Star Wars art of Tarkin. Continue Reading The Tarkin Gallery…

There are many Star Wars artists who have contributed to the franchise. From movie posters to concept artists, and of course, comics. One comic artist who caught my attention is Ken Kelly. Ken is reknown for his fantasy paintings. Studying under Frank Frazetta, Ken’s style is reminiscent of that same style of painting. Throughout his career, he’s done artwork for magazines, book covers, record albums, toy manufacturers, and comics.

For Dark Horse, he did the covers for Star Wars: Republic: Prelude to Rebellion, Outlander, and Boba Fett: Enemy of the Empire. With those 18 covers, he left his mark by portraying Ki-Adi-Mundi, Tusken Raiders, Boba Fett and Darth Vader.

To showcase his wonderful artwork, the Roqoo Depot Galleria present the Star Wars art of Ken Kelly. Continue Reading The Star Wars Art of Ken Kelly…

Dave Dorman is one of the greats when it comes to Star Wars art. While he may not be on the same level as concept artists like Ralph McQuarrie and Joe Johnston whose artwork directly affected the films, Dave has still left his mark on the franchise.

His covers have graced Star Wars comics since Dark Horse’s Dark Empire series back in 1991. He’s also done covers and interior illustrations for Star Wars books like Young Jedi Nights and Dark Forces: Jedi Knight as well as magazines like Star Wars Insider and even Topps trading cards. But most impressive of all is that George Lucas has over 70 of Dave Dorman’s original paintings in his personal collection.

Thus we present an extensive collection of Dave Dorman’s Star Wars artwork for your viewing pleasure. From the Emperor to Ewoks, Dave has brought the galaxy far, far away to life. Continue Reading Dave Dorman’s Star Wars Legacy…

The Asajj Ventress Gallery

One of the most captivating characters from Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and a source of heated rumors, Asajj Ventress is a figure that has latched on to the imaginations of Star Wars fans. From her rich personality to her striking looks, Ventress is person worth further focus.

Asajj was given birth on the page during the creation of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Concept artist Dermot Power designed a female apprentice for Darth Sidious. While Dooku was used instead, the design for Ventress didn’t go to waste. She was picked up for the Clone Wars. Leland Chee named her Asajj after Lady Asaji Washizua, a character from Akira Kurosawa’s Throne of Blood. She appeared in the Dark Horse comics, in video games,  in Genndy Tartakovsky’s Clone Wars, and later, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Whether she’ll live to see the light of a day in future films or television series, one thing fans can look forward to is her appearance in Christie Golden’s upcoming novel which will be out next summer. Until then, let us enjoy the wonderfully dark and complex beauty that is Ventress. Continue Reading The Asajj Ventress Gallery…

terese-nielsenStar Wars artist Terese Nielsen has done a wide variety of artwork for the Star Wars universe. From Luke Skywalker to Yuuzhan Vong, and the likes of Ahsoka Tano and Mandalore the Ultimate, she has covered the full gamut of Star Wars eras. Her artwork also spreads across several mediums including cover art for novels and comics and even packaging art for the Star Wars Miniatures.

Outside of Star Wars, Forgotten Realms fans may be familiar with her work as she did the covers for Paul S. Kemp’s Erevis Cale Trilogy. Terese also did a lot of work for Magic: The Gathering. For this gallery, however, we’ll be sticking to Star Wars. And for Terese, it all started with the X-wing Rogue Squadron: Masquerade trade paperback published in June 2000.

This week the Roqoo Depot Galleria presents the Star Wars art of David Vancook.

David Vancook is an artist who has been doing something very interesting: he’s been taking thrift store paintings and modifying them by adding a touch of Star Wars. His selection of paintings varies greatly in both artistic styles and themes. In turn, the Star Wars characteristics of each painting are just as varied. There are AT-AT walkers looming over landscapes, starfighters flying over oceans, and iconic bounty hunters set in floral landscapes.

Below you’ll find a gallery of Star Wars work with striking visual combinations. From Monet to Norman Rockwell, David Vancook reinterprets classic visual scenes with a modern classic: Star Wars. Continue Reading A Touch of Star Wars by David Vancook…
