Brockbank: Looking At Rise of Skywalker Concept Art
Dark Rey highlights concept art by Adam Brockbank.
Internet-wise, sometimes you stumble on something that makes you just stop.
And, recently, the Instagram of Adam Brockbank, film concept artist, and comic artist. And then a visit to his website, www.adambrockbank.com constituted a staycation for this home-bound, socially-distanced blogger.
Now then, just so I can stick to around 350 words, check out Brockbank’s gorgeous work from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Below is Rey taking on Stormtroopers on her way to face Kylo Ren.
Be sure to flip through the post’s several photos:
Recently, of the above, Fanthatrack’s Mark Newbold posted:
It’s hard to believe that we’re only 10 months removed from the end of the Skywalker Saga and The Rise of Skywalker, but the concept art from the film continues to trickle out, and artist Adam Brockbank reveals this image, of Rey showing the strength of her powers as she repels a legion of Stormtroopers.

More About Adam Brockbank
I immediately wanted to know more about the artist and, on his website, he obliged:
As a Film concept artist and illustrator, Adam Brockbank has worked on some of the most successful films and film franchises for over 2 decades.
Following a childhood filled with reading and drawing comics, and a youth studying Fine Art and Painting ( including an MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art, London ), Adam found himself applying this combination of skills to Storyboarding, and eventually to Concept illustration.
Adam has worked on a great number of films, covering almost every genre, but is best known for his work on all 8 of the ‘Harry Potter’ movies, and on 4 of the recent ‘Star Wars’ releases, designing creatures, costumes, props and environments.
Here’s hoping Adam continues to let us enjoy more of the concept art he’s pulled together for the Star Wars films.
