Pencilling Star Wars : Empire

It's funny, I seem to be working on comics that are related to fashionable movies: I helped Serge Lapointe on the inking of Batman Begins, and now I'm helping Michel Lacombe on the pencils of Star Wars : Empire. Now I'm doing some backgrounds with spaceships and environments. This issue is a fill-in in the middle of a longer storyline and we have only a few weeks to do the full book. That's a bit more work than on Star Wars Tales # 21 and 23 where it was only one short story. Here the pencils are not inked and will be colored directly. So I have to fake Michel's style more closely. We'll see how it goes.

By the way, Star Wars Tales 23 is out in store right now. Michel has shown a page he did here.
