This is another of my Star Wars designs for West End Games that has endured through the years. This is the Imperial one-man walker - the AT-PT - as first mentioned in Timothy Zahn's Star Wars New Republic trilogy. I was tasked with visualizing the vehicle for West End Games' "Dark Force Rising" RPG book. Obviously I wanted to capture something of a family resemblance to the AT-ST, but I think my own anime design influence creeped in at the edges as well. Included are most of my sketches from the design process. My sketches for such things are usually VERY loose and just serve as shape tests to confirm that what my brain THINKS it sees can actually be drawn
Unfortunately I have no idea where my original is now? So this is a scan of the published work, then cleaned up to better represent the original illustration.
