For Raxus, The capital world of The Separatist, I used Ralph McQuarrie's unused concept painting for Coruscant as inspiration and literally repainted his painting with more Gothic and world specific elements added to it. By tracing Ralph's footsteps, I've gained so much understanding for his image-making process. Obviously there's no comparison to the master...I simply do my best. Note the "After RMQ" signature.
Done in 2009 for Clone Wars Season 3.
