Ok, so he wasn't exactly making fan art, but Ralph McQuarrie was an inspiration to us all. He took a young director's crazy dream, and painted it to life. He created the look of Star Wars, and now the galaxy far, far away(as well as this one) has grown a little darker without his paints to give it light. Here's to you Master McQuarrie. If it wasn't for you, I'd probably be drawing something boring, like a plant on a table, or something.
