Battle of the Great Grass Plains by wraithdt Battle of the Great Grass Plains by wraithdt
This is one of ten pieces I did for the new Star Wars Essential Guide to Warfare. I had a blast working on it and I'm excited that I am able to contribute to the Star Wars universe.

I will be posting them in the order of sequence as it appears in the book. Hope you guys enjoy them!

An aerial panoramic view of the famous Battle of Grassy Plains in Ep 1. It was very tedious to paint hordes of Gungans and Battle Droids plus I had to make sense of the troop formations but it all turned out well in the end.

I always found it odd how a species with shields and energy weaponary still used catapaults and animals. Great picture though.

Actually, it was Organic plasma. The shields were composed of very volatile plasma which shorted out after 5-ish minutes.
The weapons they used were basically organic volatile sludge.

I think that clears some stuff up.

Not really relevant, they are still using animals and catapaults.

They have sheilds, weird plasma bombs, build a craft that can go through the centre of the planet but still use catapaults and animals. Yes they are technologically advanced, it's just very inconsistent.

Well, you have a point there.
Should we stop this argument already?

This battle was the most redeeming part of Episode I, and you captured it perfectly.
