In a wave a kubrick nostalgia, I was thinking about the characters who were never made that I would've most liked to see. Decided to create my own (digital) custom for probably my most wanted kub: Vlix! I recall he was heavily requested here on JD back in the day...hopefully you guys dig it.  :)


That is Fricken awesome! I would buy that in a heartbeat!  8)

I would have killed for one. I loved these little guys. They were really fun for a while and then Medicom somehow took the fun away sadly.

I don't think its Medicoms fault.... I'd blame Disney but who knows.

Hey guys. I painted these designs for Force Awakens kubricks awhile back. For some reason I never got around to posting them here, so I figured I would now. Hope you enjoy!

Also I noticed that the old pics I posted of my Echo Base backdrop have broken links now, so figured I'd repost it here. Along with a rough draft of another backdrop that I never got around to finishing, hehe.

These are sweet.  You should send these to Medicom with the subject line: "Hint Hint!"

MikeT, those designs are amazing.  Really makes me miss these even more seeing excellent renderings like that!  Well done!

Thanks guys! I had so much fun making these. Maybe I'll do a new wave when Episode 9 comes out. (Lando for sure!)  ;D

I hate to make another post not about actual kubricks, but I noticed that all my old illustrations I posted are gone again. (Tinypic shut down.) Figured I'd post them all one more time, along with a newer one I never shared before (Luke's Island). Hope you guys enjoy!

It seems I never commented on your post when you first posted these but these designs are exceptionally well done. Massive kudos.

The actor's likenesses are immediately apparent and I dare say you've done a better job than the Medicom designers that worked on the Kubrick series (although I'm not sure they were going for or allowed to go for realism).

And the best and most outlandish thing you've done is include Ello Asty as a chase! The obvious thing would be a helmeted and hooded Kylo Ren or Finn in bloodied Stormtrooper uniform but it's so left field I could actually see it as something Medicom would have done. Perfect.

But it also makes me a little sad because I would have (not quite literally) killed for a TFA series this well done back in 2015/2016. But at least I don't have to pine for what never was and instead gaze at these wonderful designs and dream ;D

Thanks space monkey, much appreciated!! These hearken back to a time when I had too much free time, haha. And also to a time when I was bursting with anticipation for episodes 8 and 9. (Was very let down by them, though I still love Force Awakens a lot.)

I remember Kylo and Finn's likenesses were the one that were the trickiest to me. The style of the illustrations Medicom made for the Kubrick line, like the card art for the carded figs, the DX cardboard dioramas, etc was really inspiring to me, and I think I grew as an artist a bit from trying to emulate it. Still waiting for Medicom to see these and hire me for the next series, hehe. ;D
