Topps Star Wars Galaxy 4 base cards

These two drawings are part of the Topps Star Wars Galaxy 4 card set from Topps, that's just been released. I've always loved the creatures from the old pre CG Star Wars films, so when I was asked to work on this set I didn't have to think too long about what I wanted to base my designs around. I think the part were the bald Rancor Keeper walks in crying after Luke killed the Rancor has to be one of my favorite parts in the whole trilogy. The grey sketch with the Rancor is used on the back of the card I think.

Haha, the cuddly look of the rancor in the sketch is priceless.

I love how you put those two in some sort of 'how it used to be' context. Adds so much depth and sadness to that particular scene in the movie. I will keep this in mind when I see RoTJ again! The Bar scene gets the thumbs up as well!

I like where your style seems to be going, it's starting to become a bit more identifiable as Schoenmaker. Not saying it hasn't always been a class act, of course. ;)
