Assault on Selonia by JoeJusko Assault on Selonia by JoeJusko
Probably the dumbest Star Wars painting EVER! LOL Cover for Star Wars Galaxy Magazine, based on a scene from the novel "Assault on Selonia". According to the author Selonians "are essentially giant otters"! I crossed it with a lioness to keep it from looking COMPLETELY ridiculous. LOL

Jar Jar's not going to be happy when the Selonians give him a run for his money.

Well. The idea for Selonians isn't that weird or bad, actually. Like, if they were gentle creatures or something.

But expecting to read about Han Solo fighting giant sea otters?

I thought the otter was mongoose. Until I read the description I was like 'is that a giant rikki tiki tavi?'

awesome rendition though. i have issues drawing animals. the belt/holster situation looks nice
