BONUS CONTENT: Sketchbook: Ciceron

November 25, 2010

It’s catch-up time!

The next few sketchbook pages are some of the earliest designs I did for the Snow Job story arc to try to settle on the look of the planet Ciceron itself. I knew I wanted the story to take place on a snowy planet, but I didn’t want it to look like Hoth. So I decided to give the planet some wooded and rocky areas instead of just having huge expanses of snow. Plus, for a story that had the crew tailing another group for a bit, I guess you kinda need stuff to hide behind.

This page was mostly about drawing real-life rock formations. As I mentioned in an earlier post, if I have a starting point in my head, I like to get it down on paper so that I can then go from there and either draw inspiration from it or deliberately try to make it different visually.
