Doug Chiang's Star Wars Prequel concept art designs

When Ralph McQuarrie retired and opted not to do the design work for The Phantom Menace, George Lucas turned to Doug Chiang and said, "pick up your pencil, Mate, I need some drawings".

And draw he did.

Here's some of the design concepts he came up with for The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones.

This was one of the best bits in Attack of the Clones, the duel between Jango and Boba Fett with Obi Wan Kenobi.

It was a great match up and truly added to the lore of Star Wars.

In this picture below, it's great to see the cold and darkeness of the design actually made it into the production of the movie.

Haters are always gonna hate but I thought the Pod Racer scene in the Phantom Menace was a great piece of cinematic entertainment.

Now this is pod racing!
Arguably the best thing about The Phantom Menace was the pod race.

It was epic - inspired by the famous chariot race of the Ben Hur movie, the race featured all kinds of cool designs and young Anakin's came one of the most popular vehicles from the movie.
