    I have been meaning to check out this thread. I finally get around to it and one thing does not fit at all. I saw "doodle" as a descriptive word for one of your pieces. "Doodle" does not apply. I doodle. You create magic with a variety of mediums. I hereby ban you from the use of the word "doodle" when talking about your work. It's too good for that word. *shakes inactivated lightsaber at you*

    Hey all,

    I wanted to share something I've been working on for the past couple of months (off and on when I had time). It's a movie poster based on a game here in the RPF called The Crossing. I wanted to do something reminiscent of the Drew Struzan posters of the past. I didn't use quite the same techniques, but I wanted to keep the style very similar. All of the drawings were done traditionally and then scanned into the computer (including a piece of illustration board I slopped up with gesso to use later on for texture). The final piece was then colored in Photoshop using my tablet:

    I also wanted to follow up with a few WIP shots to give you an idea to my process. I'll start off with the thumbnail sketch of my idea:

    [​IMG]

    The drawings laid out on my desk (in various states of completion) before I scanned them in and assembled them:

    And finally, the black and white drawing ready for color after all textures have been applied:

    Oh, beautiful work!

    Thank you for sharing the development stages and how it all came together. This has turned out brilliantly and captures the feel of Struzan and got me curious about the RPG.

    @Corellian_Outrider @QueenSabe7

    Thank you both for the kind words! I really do appreciate it! :)

    I started this thing back in September and worked on it off and on as my schedule allowed. It was a big undertaking, but hopefully it's the start of something new for me. Sometimes you need to get away from those small cards and work on things of a larger scale. ;)

    EDIT:
    @Jordan1Kenobi

    I'm going to throw you in there as well! You replied while I was working on my response, but thank you so much! :)

    Amazing! He looks so perfect. Is there a story behind the picture (as in do you have a reason what Luke is doing on Tattooine) or is it just an idea you had?

    Hi @teamhansolo – thank you for the kind words! :)

    I was looking to capture the general feeling of the OT more than anything else. It's titled 'Son of the Suns,' and I wanted to show a single image that would appropriately represent the Skywalker Saga. What better way than to show father and son on the planet that is essentially the center of their universe? Fun little fact: I originally set out to do a regular 'movie poster' for ANH, but when I started to play around with the thumbnail sketches, I realized that it worked better with less elements. That's how it evolved to only include Luke and Vader.
