Raiders 30th 2nd Concept by MarkRaats Raiders 30th 2nd Concept by MarkRaats
First of all, my grateful thanks to everyone for all the kind comments. I haven't had a chance to reply and will do so ASAP.

Another look at the Raiders 30th concept. This time I wanted to incorporate more of Amsel's coloring and his more subtle themes as well as a physical nod to his original beautiful poster by using a few elements from his one-sheet.

The piece on the left: Grey Copic markers and Derwent Burnt Umber pencil on Acid free paper.

The piece on the right: Copic markers and prisma color pencils on a inkjet print of the piece on the right.

I generally hate using graphite pencil and enjoyed the Derwent colored pencil/Copic mix so much that I wanted to keep the original drawing as is.

Go here for a detailed closeup: [link]

The final piece is posted here: [link]

Ich würde dir gerne eine ausführlichere Kritik geben, aber meine Meinung zu diesem Kunstwerk ist letztendlich nur mit einem einzigen Wort zu beschreiben: Boah! :D Das sieht einfach klasse aus, fast noch besser, aber mindestens genausogut, wie die originalen Kinoplakate
Danke mein Freund. Ich hoffe euch gefällt das fertige Bild, wenn ich mit ihm fertig bin!

I love also both versions :D the grey version really looks awesome too, great that you kept it, and printed it again to color it :)
Love the details and the scenes you worked into, did you use reference for them?
As always, awesome job! :dance:
Hiya my friend and thanks for stopping by..!

I'm glad you like the grey version. Its a combination I've never used before and I enjoyed the outcome tremendously - that's why I wanted to keep it. Reference?? Yep, always. When doing something so specific, I feel the best outcome will be achieved by using good reference.

Luckily, Lucasfilm is happy to let me have decent material if I ask nicely..

I love to see your work, it's a pleasure to stop by!

The grey version turned out very good, so it was a nice idea to keep it :)
It's awesome, that Lucasfilm can give you material for working. For me I need to search on the internet for good pictures for references... and there are not so many :(
You lucky guy! :D

That's cool! I really like your style! Just curious, but do you also paint digitally?
