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

Final poster for TROS. gotta say it certianly looks better than the ones for TFA and TLJ

  • I like the diagonal lines that all spout from that spot on the right. Kylo's saber, Skywalker saber, and the wreckage (looks like Vader's broken lightsaber imo) all seem to be flowing out from there. (also it looks like if you draw a line stemming from the line of Poe's blast, that would lead back there too) Neat design choice.

  • It's interesting how Carrie Fisher gets top billing, yet Leia's not on the poster. Carrie's not even with us, and she's still the baddest bitch on that movie. Ugh, her power.

@JTWfan77: I will "cover" your requests as well.


@heidl I know you have been busy but was wondering, as we're in Star Wars season, whether you might be willing to try your hand at these, as discussed before? Would be really grateful if you would, but if not possible I understand fully. Many thanks and looking forward to seeing all your future work! :)

Heidl, is there any possibility that you could re-create these two Japanese SW covers? I've searched online for hi-res versions but no luck:

Hello everyone :)


I'm doing a series for The Mandalorian and I want to do an original logo like I did for Last Jedi and Rise of Skywalker.

I thought the official logo was a tad too bland.

But I might need some help or suggestions for this one.

So what do you guys think about this idea:




It is still work in progress, so don't pay too much attention to the alignment or the spacing between the letters.

If I may, the kerning on "Original music by" is a tad too big :)  Oher than that, it's stellar work!

This looks awesome! Just a small note, 'LEGEND' has a typo in the tagline ('LEGNED'). Great work though.

Thanks guys! :)

@heidl just saw these now, thanks so much for these, they were completely worth waiting for!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I love how you've reframed the art subtly to include more detail and position everything just so much better than the originals.


Now I'm wondering, is it too much to ask, would you consider doing matching ones for RCA's Star Wars and Return of the Jedi (reimagined with poster art from the films of course)? :)

what do you mean with 'matching ones'  ? 


Using a similar template to create custom covers for the other two films (as opposed to recreating the original RCA Red Seal cover art, which does not use film art and logos). Does that make better sense?
