Star Wars Insider magazine featured Ansel’s Imperial-class Star Destroyer in 2011, which is not surprising given his knowledge and experience with the franchise. You clearly see that knowledge on display here. He also contributed to the Wookieepedia entries for the Assertor-class Star Dreadnought and the Bellator-class dreadnought.

An amazing talent, Ansel awes with his ability to render in such intrinsic detail the technical and engineering aspects of each starship. It’s truly amazing.

We hope you enjoyed today’s post. Let us know below. Come on now, don’t be shy.

Cheers!
