Battle for Dantooine by joewight Battle for Dantooine by joewight
pencil, Photoshop

I got fed up with trying to make this one look like a sort of Ryan Church sketchy painting and just finished the damn thing as best I could.

  Hi Joe Wight, I'm a freelance videogame developper working for several months on a 2D role playing game in Starwars universe.
I have used your art (Starwars characters) to create my game and I would like you to have the opportunity to check what I have done so far.
For copyright reasons, I can not release this game, even for free. Nevertheless, I'm still working on the game and hope to finish it in a year.
  I would like to find a way to release the game for free for the community, or even to give it for free to a company able to sell it.
My personal purpose is to have fun creating a game and seeing people enjoying it.
Thanks to answer me if you are interested!

Jeff B.

Splendid peice of art! The empire Star Destroyer seems quite fuzzy compared to the alliance x-wing fighter but it works nice.

Ryan Church is awesome. And so is that X-Wing!

I'd place my bet on the X-Wing... OK, perhaps I've been playing X-Wing Alliance too much ^^;

I'm pretty sure its called Tatooine.

There is also a planet called Dantooine: [link]

"Dantooine is too remote to make an effective demonstration. But don't worry – we will deal with your Rebel friends soon enough."

Yeah. That was the planet where Luke grew up. It was the planet that was controlled by the Huts. The planet has 2 names or something. I don't really get it. I suppose its just a Star Wars brain fart, like how a parsec is both a unit of distance and time.
alltheoriginalnames Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2010
Two different planets. Tatooine is where Luke grew up, the desert planet run by the Huts in Star Wars IV.

Dantooine is the planet Princess Leia says the Rebels are on while being interrogated on the Death Star.
lordmep Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
That scene created tension because at the time, it was the planet where Luke and Obi were still living. They're the same place, somehow.

Whatever. I know I'm right and you know you're right. Why don't we meet half way and just agree that I'm right here?

Wow! Its wonderfull! I didn't knew that empire dreadnoughts could enter in planetary atmosphere... =D

This X-Wing pilot is really badass to charge a dreadnought alone =D

Doing some Ryan church-like painting implies very high skills. I know what it's about cos' I have his video tutorials from gnomon. However you did a nice Job with this piece, though the brownish sky looks a bit weird. But I guess I would have expected the scene to happen in space. Feel free to checkout my own SW fanart.

Great Job!!!

Wow! That's a really cool piece of art. I like the 'concept art' look of it!

I love how you used an Imperial-Class I instead of a II, not many works showing that class.

blackravendesign down here just took my thoughts, but yeah, this is really beautiful. I love the definition on the closest ship
Awsome work overall
blackravendesign Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2008
Looks really good, I like the sense of perspective and distance you have acheived with the use of pale and strong colours, works really well. :+fav: !
Keiichi-K1 Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2008
Wow, your ability to pencil draw aircraft and ships never ceases to amaze me. You seriously need to draw up some technical manuals someday XD
Belvarius Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2008
Wow, very well done! I love the details on the X-Wing.

Twenty bucks on the big one!
finrod-calmcacil Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2007

and in response to a comment someone made, Its not s sulicide attack..reasons
1. that x-wing may have all of Rouge squadren behind it.
2. The star destroyers weponary is to inacurate to hit an x-wing
3. This may be a New Republic Star destroyer in which case the x-wing is a FREINDLY
4. It may be a hit and run with the proton torpedoes
