Now thats a poster!

Love that you used all your references from the actual movie. Always hated those SE posters where they used images from other movies...

Cheers Jonathan and well spotted there mate.

Yep, it can be very hard keeping the fans happy because they notice every detail. I have a terrific consultant in Washington who checks all my comps for movie accuracy before I render the finished piece - just to make sure I haven't inadvertently dropped in something from the wrong movie!

That's a big pet peeve of mine as well. They half-heartedly tried to answer it in that all 3 were supposed to be one big collage…though I don't think they work that way.

Amazing poster.  I'm curious why Han is depicted in carbonite?
Reply
:iconmarkraats:
MarkRaats Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2013
Cheers Patrick and a good question. The idea was to create a poster as if it was from the original release in 1983 - assuming that the viewer didn't know what had happened to Han other than what they had seen in Empire. This is also why the color palette is typical of a piece from that era and it added a very exciting challenge to the piece over all.

LOL, cheers bud. Actually it was a REAL challenge not to over work the piece with millions of characters. I fought tooth and nail to keep the Ewok's out as you can see!

Oh you and me both mate - I hated those dickhead things..

Interestingly, talking to the guys who worked on the movie, they hated the idea of the Ewok's as much as we do!
