Star Wars - A New Hope 40th Anniversary poster art

JYN ERSO - ROGUE ONE

THIS ARTWORK IS SOLD

A long day getting this finished but its hopefully been worth it. I'm not sure who designed her costume but man, doing that drapery reminded me of my days studying and drawing the clothing folds used by the Renaissance masters.

I've tried to make her look battle weary rather then simply being a bad ass heroine.

The artwork is Copic Markers and Prismacolor pencils on watercolour paper - 12.5 x 16.5 inches

The pencils are done, time to dig out the paint and brushes.
Hopefully I don't screw it up...

Star Wars - A New Hope 40th Anniversary poster 02
THIS ARTWORK IS SOLD: Star Wars - A New Hope 40th Anniversary poster art. Rejected Concept02

As I've posted previously, the idea for the new poster is to try and avoid the current trend for cluttered, bombastic poster art in favour of a more elegant solution which might be vaguely reminiscent of Tom Jung’s original 1977 artwork. I was keen therefore to concentrate on only the opening chapter of the movie to avoid having a million faces and in addition ot this, I wanted to refer to the climax by way of depicting the Death Star. 

In the changes for this concept drawing (02), the client and I explored changing Luke from the confused farm boy to the hero as well as adding a different Vader, ships as well as having an alternative arrangement for the droids, Ben plus stormtrooper. 

The art is coloured Copic Markers and Prismacolor pencils on watercolour paper - 12.5 x 16.5 inches 

Color slightly enhanced and text added digitally.
