FINALLY this installment is finished!
Star Wars is copyrighted and owned by George Lucas (no matter what one's negative opinion of him is. Damn selfish Bashers...)
This is the second in a series of posters i've had planned out in my head since the prequels were ANNOUNCED. the blueprints have existed in my head ever since, and have manifested in various drawings and other forms before finally reaching this Photoshop stage.
Now, some of you may be saying "this isn't a poster, it's a collage." it's both, really. it can be printed and hung up like a movie poster, it's got the cast and movie stuff at the bottom like a poster, so it's both. i tried to cram in as much relevance as possible, from deleted scenes, to cameos. for instance, above the handmaidens, you can see a cameo played by Nathan Hamill, Mark's son. and above him is Rick McCallum, the producer (keep insults to yourself), and above him is sound designer Ben Burtt. So yea, there's a LOT of hidden info in this baby, heh
NO prequel-bashing please. i CANNOT stress that enough.
also, many, many, MANY thanks to digital Star Wars fan artist Simon Zoltan for providing me with his beautiful movie logos for use for these posters!
IMPORTANT NOTICE, PLEASE READ -
with this installment of this series i've started to include Expanded Universe material that wasn't in the movies. This might charm SOME fans, "oh i'd love to see such-and-such in there!", or it could piss off some fans who have what i've come to call Ostrich Mentality, "if you don't see it, it's not there". "oh that wasn't in the movie! why'd you put that there! waah wah!" see the previous poster for details of what i'm intending to do.
one thing i plan to do for the next poster, Episode III, i could REALLY use some help with:
i plan to have Anakin and Obi-Wan wearing the armor they wear in the Clone Wars tv show, particularly Anakin, as his armor is so reminiscent of Vader, and i wanna show that transition. this is tricky to do, as the show has such a unique art style that clashes with photo realism. one option i'd like to use is the Sideshow figures, and paste Hayden Christensen and Ewan McGreggor's heads, but i need good photograhs of it in fighting poses, poses that can match up with existing headshots. if anyone can help with this, i'd be very appreciative. help contribute! it would also be nice to include Clone Wars characters like Riyo Chuchi, Dutchess Satine, and Cad Bane, but again, the art style clashes, so if anyone can come up with solutions, i'm all ears.
