Dates quoted were dates of paintings by McQ with the characters, so he designed them beforehand and got them approved by George Lucas. Napkin? Which?

Yes, McQ had already designed and painted C3PO, R2 (Jan 31), Vader (Feb 14), Stormtroopers (Mar 6). Chewie was in development, as you can see in McQ's "Famous Five" painting (Apr 1). So Alex was using existing designs in his storyboards.

Lucas hired Colin Cantwell in November 1974 to build conceptual models of various vehicles. McQuarrie joined a couple of weeks later and refined those designs as well making new ones. Alex Tavoularis joined mid-February 1975 to do storyboards based on previous designs.
