INKTOBER #11: Untitled Star Wars concept

Published on 2018-10-10

One of the questions I've been asked a lot since completing work on Triumviratus is "WHAT'S NEXT?" It's a question I'm asking myself too. 

So I thought that, for the rest of October, I'd post a few images from potential projects,  all hand-drawn by me (using reference). This will get my head back in   the game, and will also give me a small stack of original art I can   bundle up as a reward for my next Kickstarter launch. 

Feel free to weigh in over the course of the month if one or more of these projects really gets you fired up. All opinions will be taken into consideration! 

Without further ado, here's today's potential future project.

Untitled Star Wars concept (working title "FORCES")

It's no secret that one day I'd love to get a chance to pen a story for the Star Wars universe. Screenplay, teleplay, novel, comic... I'd be open to pretty much anything. It's one of a few items on my writing bucket list.

And when you want something like that, it pays to be ready for an opportunity should one come along. 

So I've started kicking around some ideas for a standalone story set in the Star Wars universe. This one is set in between Episodes III and IV, a few years after Order 66. And - with the exception of a vengeful Darth Vader entirely off the leash - the story focuses almost entirely upon brand new characters, trapped by economic circumstance under the heavy and merciless boot of the Empire. 

Meet Kerai, the star of our show, a young homeless girl who finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time...
