    I've tried it but it isn't very good. :(
    I hope it isn't too disturbing in wallpaper format and I also hope I will have a hi-res, clear version of that Vader pic. (That's my favorite Vader pic. :) )

    Wow! How do you churn out so many pictures like this!
    You can definatly see the time and effort that has gone into these! I'm really liking the duel pieces!

    Very nice work! ;)

    Hi SimonZ,

    Just checked out your website and your DVD covers are awesome! I downloaded them all.

    Any chance you could be gently persuaded to create one for the Star Wars Musical Journey DVD that came out with the soundtrack? I'm sure it would be most appreciated by everyone.

    Thanks,

    Book

    Geez, Simon, I can't get over how good these all are: your composition is wonderful--uncluttered, but with enough images to really convey the emotion of each piece. I really, really hope that you're planning on going into the graphic design field, because you really have a gift for this. Nice, nice work!

    Thank you!
    I really like graphic design and I thought of working in it but there are two big problems: first, I think I have much to learn yet. And I'm a Hungarian and I think my possibilities are really limited here. :( There is no Lucasfilm in Hungary. :)

    Ok, firstly: Wow. You're very, very good.

    Secondly, I like your alternate DVD covers for the films and for the Musical Journey, but how about the Ultimate Challenge:

    A DVD cover for the Holiday Special.

    Erin_21 and Tomtrek, thank you both!
    I haven't seen Holiday Special yet but I've heard about it and I don't think I'll create a DVD cover for that. :)

    Excellent work on the CD cover, Simon! The theatrical posters look wonderful, but I think I like the Vader/Palpatine and Obi Wan wallpapers the best (putting the warmth of the Coruscant sunset behind Obi Wan's promo pic really makes that one)--again, with the use of only a few powerful images, the compositions are very strong. I like these a lot!

    My site has moved to [link=http://simonz.co.hu]simonz.co.hu[/link]. I changed the whole design and there are a lot of new 1280*1024 wallpapers and posters there. Here are some of the new additions:

    Very nice work Simon! I love them all. That last one could be a Christmas-like card. The posters look very much look like they could be actual movie posters. Did you ever consider running them through a filter to give them the painted quality that the old posters used to have?

    Nice work!

    Thanks!
    I never tried to make them like they were paintings because I feel it's like some kind of... forgery. I respect the ones who can make paintings and that's why I don't try to simulate it. It would be great if I could make real paintings but I can't. :( So, my computer is my brush. :)

    I think it is only a forgery if you let people think you painted it. Like if you take a picture of Luke, run it through a filter and say, "Check out my painting" and let everybody assume it is your own work.

    If you ever checked out my earlier stuff I came right out and said I ran my photo manip through filter so-and-so, so there was no question that I didn't draw it. But now it is backfiring against me a bit. I am not using photos in my most recent creations and so I am now going to great pains to advertise that fact. LOL. Oh well.

    Nice job on your stuff. I wish I could paint better also. wouldn't that be nice.

    You persuaded me. :)
    I saw your works and I really like your last artwork. Congratulations!

    I created a saga poster and wallpaper series:

    There are 3-in-1 and 6-in-1 versions on my site, too.

    Very nice, I can see in the Episode 2 one you flipped Jango Fett so that his little antenna thing is on the wrong side now. ;)
