French freelance photographer and graphic designer Sebastien Del Grosso has created a series of beautiful artworks based on the Star Wars universe. It might not look like it, but photography played a big role in the project.

For one of this images, Del Grosso started with a single battle droid action figure and a miniature blaster.

He poses the action figure in front of a bright screen as backlighting to capture just the silhouette in a photo using his DSLR.

By combining several silhouettes into the same frame, he creates groups of figures.

Del Grosso then places the silhouettes onto a background and adds additional digital touches to bring the scene to life. What resulted is this piece, titled “Geonosis,” which shows battle droids marching down a battlefield:

He did the same with a photo of a stormtrooper action figure…

With a few exceptions, pretty much all of Del Grosso’s backgrounds are created using photographs as well before textures and other edits are applied.
