SCULPTING A GALAXY by Lorne Peterson
Just wanted to give you a book tip. I should have bought this book a long time ago but finally it arrived today, a little late because it is a very good recourse book. This is a must if you’r interested in building models and Star Wars models in perticular. Lots of very good close up photos (216 pages :-).

You can buy it here Amazone UK for only £10.50
There is a very cool Limited Edition with lots of very cool stuff but The book is the same. I sells for £275.00 but that one don’t fit my budget right now :frowning:

More info on the Limited Edition here and here

HI Peter,
thanks for your words in my project.

Your illustration are simple GREAT… why?

In my first look, i think: waaa other space scene…
but when i look these little details… hahahahaha are GREAT!! (i love the little details).

and it also impressed the previous work in this project. belive me.

Good luck.


Hey Peter, really cool concept… hahahaha… great mate!! Great details on the whole composition! and the scene atmosphere is really nice!! Congratulations for this superb work mate !! Best of luck!! and time fore really well deserved beers and some tequila shots !!(Vader pays the bill :smiley: ) Cheers!! :beer:


wow… shame on me I totally missed your entry Peter. I am very surprised. Maybe I was awaiting you around animation/movie category. Anyway, great final image. You are dealing with same importance of closeups as I do with my illustration, but I believe it is worth of it. It´s cool to see StarWars fan as you are doing such a jokes. Good luck mate :thumbsup:


one question

what was the RWNDER TIME ??


Good question :slight_smile:
The way I did it was by breaking up the scene in different parts but I think that the most complex scene took about 3.5 hours to render om my G5 Macintosh 2 x 2 GHz, 1.5 GB ram (not Intel).

I collected all the different “parts” that I used for the image in this image.

And the final image:


I want a statue of Dark Vador like this man!!!Congratz on finishin a really ronfl pic man!


nice - and all toghether composed in PS ?

VERY nice

i’ve to try this technique in interior renders. Maybe it’s good way to render interiors without GI - just to fake it…?

Any sugestions ? or TIPS ?


Awesome image! I laughed the instant I saw it. I just wish I was closer to the drunken action… Excellent use of light and composition. I am envious! Good luck in the challenge!


Congratulation to all you winners both in this illustration challenge and in the others :slight_smile:
I’ll sure be back next challenge! And happy new year!!!
