Interlude - Excerpt from Cdr. Bannon’s log: No wonder Iridonia is rough! The native zabrak has a knack for choosing the hard life, the tough way, the wrong allies. The world has paid the price over and over again. This will be no different. Iridonia will serve as an example...

thumb_NPC_bannon-holo.jpgCdr. Bannon: That relay must stay offline! Do what you have to do Commander!

thumb_NPC_goren2.jpgCdr. Goren: Affirmative, we’ll double back when we’ve blown the thing to hell! Over and out!

After my Trigalis - fisherman's wharf, I've wanted to do more real life references in the SW universe... I thought a butcher/meatpacking district had some of the same interesting grittyness... Pretty happy with how it turned out... Let me know what you think...

A few more detailed shots below...

I took a lot of design cues from the grittier parts of Jedha...

This some stunning work, I have a few of those pictures as well for the architectural work as well, you have put in so much detail it is insane, great colors, and those minifigures. :wub:

Excellent build with lots of atmossphere! I like the snakehead and the beheaded Porg.

This is one of my favorite posts in a while. The detail is incredible, it feels so lived-in and real. I love the idea of a meatpacking district--inspired choice, and the tense story and setting is awesome. Even your inspiration photos are awesome, and ones I mostly haven't seen before! Great work.

Yeah, concept art is really helpful at several stages of building. I think I mainly use them in two: 1) Designing the architecture and layout of my buildings, and then again later 2) Filling the space with props etc.

Thanks for noticing! I love sneaking in those small statements and eastereggs!

Thanks Sam! Means a lot coming from you... Yeah! I'm really falling in love with those every-day scenes in SW, even more so after the The Mandalorian, chapter 11: The Heiress. The fisherman's wharf on Trask was beautiful!
