Star Wars - A New Hope 40th Anniversary poster 02 by MarkRaats Star Wars - A New Hope 40th Anniversary poster 02 by MarkRaats
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.

I love your stuff, but this is way, way, WAY too tiny, AND it has a giant intrusive watermark? Why bother posting it?

A sad reflection of the fact the people steal the art, make prints and then sell them illegally SigmaEcho. 

I would rather not watermark and prefer posting big images but since there are a lot of dickheads out there it saves me the trouble of fighting studio legal-eagles when they assume its ME selling bootleg copies of my own damn art.
