    I'd say that's damn good proof that a great idea is way more important than fancy effects :p
    I'm not hiding it, my vote went to @Dasan - great teaser, absolutely great.

    Thank you. I thought your poster was excellent, as well! It is solidly in my Top 3. I actually haven't voted yet, since I have been unable to choose between them.

    I stand corrected! Thank you for sparing us until voting is over ^:)^

    I will say that I think some of the posters need to have higher resolutions for several elements. Some images look crisp, but the logos and text looks low res and blurry. My advice for the future is to use google image search and select "search tools", "size", "large". That way something like the Star Wars logo is crisp to match the other elements. Also, if using photoshop, make sure you set the text layer to a setting that will remove the jaggy edges. Anything but "none", otherwise there is no anti-aliasing and it ends up looking like MS paint (unless of course you ARE working in MS paint...).

    I like to work big, and then save the image down to a smaller size. That way everything is high res and looks professional.

    But remember, when google image searching, that some large sized images are still just smaller ones blown up and aren't necessarily crisp, so always make sure the crispness is there at full size before using.

    True, of course you always have to use your eyes as well, though at least with the "large" setting you remove a lot of the bad images.

    Okay, said I wouldn't critique until the contest is over, but I think a rule for the contest that would have been great is that you cannot use any official or fan-made Star Wars imagery unless you yourself made the fan made stuff. The Star Wars logo could have been the only approved official image. Would have been interesting to see what people produce when not being able to use official images that are already compelling.

    Regardless, these are some pretty solid efforts for the most part. I couldn't do any of that, even with photoshop.

    Hey, if it's still possible, I'd like to add my version too :).

    There's 2 main reasons I did it the way it is:
    1. I liked the idea that their eyes are embedded to the galaxy, gives off the idea about their roles and responsibilities in the future.
    2. It's black (My favorite color!)

    I call it "Flares in the Shade"

    I vote Dasan option 2 - still can't get over how awesome that is! If it were the actual teaser poster, I'd buy it and hang it without reservation.

    I like the 'Every dawn casts new shadows' line - really inspired.
