I think it is a pretty standard stars wars blaster.

yeah, it's a pretty basic and common blaster pistol in the SW universe, but it's distinctive enough that im kinda sure that it was used in a scene in jabba's palace. nice work on the art btw.

That dud looks pretty angry, Han Solo must have shot first and pissed him off! :D Or maybe it is because I am looking at Star Wars related artwork while playing the closing theme to Star Trek VI. Excellent artwork, I always liked the Star Wars blaster pistols, even though they resemble real firearms more than a laser. Nice work on the armor, it sure looks thick and bulky!

The use of parts from real-steel WW2 firearms like the Mauser Broomhandle pistol and StG 44 added a real flavor to the blasters, too. My other favorite SF movie ray-guns were the TOS era phasers, they had a surprisingly logical and futuristic design- with lots of details!! The Type-1 unit plugs into the pistol-shaped Type-2 chassis, the handle is a replaceable powerpack (which wasn't seen often...), there were dials for selecting power settings and beam width, and the phaser even incorporated a reflex aimsight. Compared to the later shaver-like phaser from TNG, which lacked any visible way to recharge the weapon or any means to aim it, it is far more convincing. This was no doubt due to Matt Jefferies' superb concept design. I liked the later TOS movie designs, too, which mostly play off of the original TOS phaser. Funny how a plastic prop can somehow become a facet of the 23rd century for us humans with our TV shows. :)

What I Love Best About This Picture Is 'The Armor. Rodians Are Typically Very Thin Species, I Suspect The Armor Is An Animatronic, Synthetic, Exoskeleton Type Of Armor For Industrial Usage. Thanks For Sharing.

How do you decide where the camera angle is going to be?

I wanted a pose that showed of the pistol as that is what the card is about so I pulled it into the foreground and pushed the rodian back giving us the classic down the barrel veiw while still seeing the design of the gun. Then once I had established this in rough form I found some good ref to back up the drawing and resolved it into the final.

Again, really nice. Great work on the lighting, and I like how painterly the strokes get on his far arm.

Huge thanks, I am enjoying the SW work, who knew, I thought it would be restrictive but the opposite seems to be the case.

I am sorry I have been slack about getting back to you about your comic, I have it sitting there and hopefully I will get off my arse over the next few days.

Hope all is well and you had a good easter.

I think SW really opened a new angle for you. Just something clicked and bam! THe force is strong in you.

No worries on ever replying man. I know you are busy, so don't worry about it.

Seeing the name of the card I'm not sure if you meant this or if it just works, but what I actually like best about this is not the scraggly, badass looking Rodian, but the elegant blaster. The gold plates make it very noticeable.
