As a companion piece to our highlight of Kosept’s Star Wars art, we decided to dive a little deeper into the artwork by asking the artist himself. From inspiration and challenges, to upcoming projects, Sebastien shares a little about himself and his amazing artwork.

I also take my inspiration from Star Wars toys and statues. I collect them and even created a Star Wars-merchandising specialized website with friends of mine ( I love to draw from toys photos and often use Gentle Giant busts, Kotobukiya statues, Sideshow stuff for that.

The Star Wars Art of Kosept

Browsing through Star Wars images on Pinterest, I came across a neat looking image of the droid bounty hunter IG-88.

The way the detailed depictions of each Star Wars character blend and blur with abstract patterns adds a lot of depth to the imagery. As commented by the artist, the style is somewhere between tribal and urban, and the outcome is very cool.

The artwork is done by Kosept, and the work in this particular series is magnificent. Enjoy! Continue Reading The Star Wars Art of Kosept…
