I think on a subconscious level I’ve really been inspired by Alex Grays work. I was introduced to his art in college, my roommate kept a book of his paintings on the coffee table. I haven’t thought about it in years but this morning while rewatching Holocrons of Fate it dawned on me how much he has influenced my storytelling and design.
His painting the Theologue. was always one of my favorites. I must have tapped into its influence while storyboarding this scene from Star Wars Rebels.
