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.

Rejected Concept.

Tom Jung's poster art for Star Wars is a high-watermark in the world of Movie posters and I have always loved the simplicity of it. In this concept which has been rejected, I wanted to achieve a similar kind of simplicity concentrating mainly on the opening chapter of the movie.

Copic Markers, Derwent and Prismacolor pencils on watercolour paper - 12.5 x 16.5 inches. Color slightly enhanced and text added digitally.
