Star Wars Space Battle - Acrylic Painting

I finished this painting about a month ago and I forgot to post it. This painting was inspired by my collection of Star Wars Micro-Machines and Rogue One. I have always been a huge fan of the space battles in the Star Wars. I often would fast forward through a lot of the other stuff just to watch them. I tried to incorporate a few new details from the movies such as "Blue Squadron". The film had not come out yet on DVD so I tried to get the Blue Squadron details as best as I could from the Rogue One trailers. I always wondered what a Star Destroyer hanger looked like, I tried my best to find reference. I should have waited a month or so because I just got caught up on Rebels and they seem to show Star Destroyer hangers often.

I started this project before I moved across state lines. For a long time it was just a star less sky with some sketchy fighters. I tried to put the fighters into groups with wing-men and such. I've been working with acrylic paints more lately just for the sake of drying time. One of the things that annoyed me about this piece was the canvas' texture. I wish I would have worked on a smoother surface because it was sometimes hard to get detail work to not look feathery. In all it was a fun project!

If you are interested in purchasing the piece or any of my other work please visit my shop or shoot me an email ( if you have any custom artwork request!
