That was me, yeah a long time ago and on the shrine. And thanks for the kind words   Since I posted them a long time ago, it was a good time to do a quick revisit. So here are the

Continuation of the series...   @Pellaeon found a hi-res version of Roger Kastel's "Style A" poster for Empire, and it works quite nicely actually. The same with Kazuhiko Sano's "Style B" fo

Series based on the art of Ralph McQuarrie.         Alternates:

I recently stumbled upon the Japan Edition of TRoS:

And I decided to remake it in square format:

And then I decided I'd do the same for The Last Jedi, yet with a few subtle differences compared to the official design:

And because I was already rolling along, I sat down for another hour or so to come up with a fitting custom cover for The Force Awakens as well:

This one was tricky, Photoshop action was rather extensive as I had to move around quite a lot of elements. But it makes me happy to see a full trilogy of Japanese Editions. And I'm now I'm thinking about OT and PT versions already... 

 

Now you need to make a whole series in this style for the other 6 movies in the saga!!!!

Are there any Struzan-style illustrations for the sequel trilogy? Because I'd definitely love to make consistent covers for all 9 films (and the Struzan posters for 1 through 6 are easily the best we have).

 

AFAIK there's a Struzan poster for 7 and AMAZING Paul Shipper posters for 8 and 9. I don't have them with good quality tho

Can anyone try and make some sort of "Paul Shipper Series" of soundtrack covers? At least one cover using each of these posters here.

 

I've tried to do it myself but it just didn't end up good for some reason. I really like Paul's work and it seems that he's become the main artist for Rise of Skywalker covers, which is great. But unfortunately he hasn't done much art for the first sequel movie, The Force Awakens, and the best poster he did for that film doesn't have some important characters like Han Solo, Chewie Leia or Hux in it.

 

So if anyone could try and make these covers I would be really grateful :D

(Extra points if the force awakens cover has a Han Solo photoshopped in it lol)

Oh, but here's a quickie before I'm off:

DUDE I saw this collection you made some time ago and loved it! Can I ask you to make a small change in the A New Hope one? Justo to make it say "A New Hope" in the same style as the other titles in the collection :v

 

Let us know what you thought of the film when you come back, I'm STARVING for opinions of people that are not blinded by pointless rage and hate.

My feelings towards the film are mixed... although I hope it grows with repeated viewings.

Great work! Would it be possible to do the original trilogin and prequel trilogy with this same layout with the new logos? Would be great to have a matching set for all of the movies!

Just saw that you had written that you might do the original trilogy and prequel trilogy...

You mean change the Reylo death star fight to something else? 

Yes, with something like an empty location image, like you did before,

maybe the stormy sea with the death star without any characters in it.

 

What do you think?

Here a quick test

You know what, I initially looked for usable concept art or matte paintings, but couldn't find any. And I also saw it as a great opportunity to use the Rey/Kylo Artwork. 

 

But I feel you...

 

On the blog I describe this collection as a set of covers that's depicting famous locations before or long after certain key events. I knew deviating from this style was gonna come back to haunt me :lol:

 

I'm still not sure though if I wanna lose that particular Reylo fight scene tbh.....

Shadows of the Empire was made for request as a joint venture with Dave Williams from the FSM forum.

I don't if it has been requested before, but I love the Signature Collection and I am using these as the covers for my digital playlists. Can you maybe create one for The Rise of Skywalker as well? Thank you! :)
