“Now that George Lucas has (sadly) decided to retire from movie directing, I’m expecting him to call me up to ask me to take over on the next Star Wars movie/tv series. My first pitch will be this… Darth Maul fighting Aliens! I thought it would be a very cool contest – and I also wanted to draw Darth Maul because of the interest in the 3D release of The Phantom Menace. The idea is that this was an initiation test that Darth Sidious set for Maul during his training. This took a lot of hard work – but I’m really, really pleased with how it turned out and I think it’s my best work yet! It’s an entirely original depiction of George Lucas’s and HR Giger’s characters and was drawn first in pencil, then scanned and coloured in Photoshop using a Wacom pad.” –Robert Shane
