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:

Would anyone be willing to take those nice new colours from page 1 and add them to the "target exclusives" that are found over at HQcovers?

I did a quick one in preview but i don't have any real programs to make them look perfect.

For the back cover art, I do not have all the legal information on the back. A simple JW note with 2017 on the bottom is all. It's just for fan and fun purposes, but if I were to use it, I would definitely make sure it had all the proprieties.

Thanks for the feedback! For a second I thought people couldn't open the files! Will do. More on the way!

 

Nice work. I agree with JS about the contrasting font colour.

 

Personally, if I may offer a suggestion, I would rather place the track titles on the back (Crait) cover and put the album credits over Snoke's red room ;)

Nice, but I suggest you choose a more contrasting font color.

Nice work, but what I meant was album technical credits on the throne room cover, as in "recording engineer", and so on (with the intention that this would be the inner sleeve that one sees when opening up the jewel case). Only as a suggestion.

 

The Rey front cover art is terrific.

Thank you so much. This thread inspired me to try this out, so I'm happy that these are decent. I can get the technical credits off the web and do a whole package, so yes I now understand what you mean about the throne room cover. 

 

The Rey cover art is my favorite too. That one was fun. I'm working on a SOLO cover as well, using that early art with the yellowish backing and Han, Lando, Qi'ra, and Chewie, as well as the Falcon. The formatting on that one is a bit tricky. 

 

Any requests? I want a challenge!

SOLO COVER ART.pdf

Yeah! I know it has not actually been released but here is a shot at cover art for SOLO: A Star Wars Story.

Thoughts?

 

Nice cover IJ. Again, agree with JS about the text, it's difficult to read. Also not a fan of the "with a theme by", rather stick to the official credit from the poster.

 

You should try some more Solo covers:

Thank you, Iron Giant 😁 I believe that quality will always win over quantity (or speed for that matter).

Also, I've never heard the word "exactitude" - it sounds great, ha! Hearing it associated with my work alone was worth all the effort.

I am in love with your covers Jerry. That's just too adorable! 

My soulless Photoshop creations could never compete with hand-made work like that.

Haha! Yes!

 

I was going through some of yours on hqcovers and I absolutely love them. They just weren't quite what I was looking for. I was looking for something much too precise and tailored for me. The only way I could do that was to draw them myself. I traced the logo but the drawings are original. It took me four hours but heck it was fun! I never posted them but I did back covers and spines as well. Thanks for the appreciation.

 

Now that Solo is out on Blu Ray and people are doing rips and edits and what not, do we have some fan made Solo covers coming in? I'm going to get busy on one in hope for an FYC in December or something. Then I can whip up a quick combo playlist and get drawing!   Anyone started thinking of things yet?
