Artist Ralph McQuarrie passed away on Saturday March 3rd at the age of 82. Ralph was an amazing artist that conceputalised many cult nerd movies such as Raiders of the Lost Ark and E.T. His most famous works have been amazing Star Wars images.

Here’s tribute to the artist that was posted on McQuarrie’s official website

It is with the deepest sadness that we announce the passing of Ralph McQuarrie.

People say you should never meet your heroes. Ralph was the exception to that rule. We were all fans of his amazing art long before we were blessed with his friendship. But once you got to know Ralph it was impossible not to become a fan of Ralph the man.

Ralph was a very special person for many more reasons than his undeniable brilliance with a brush. He was an especially kind, sensitive, deep, modest, funny and fascinating gentleman. And as fine a role model as any one could have wished for.

His influence on design will be felt forever. There’s no doubt in our hearts that centuries from now amazing spaceships will soar, future cities will rise and someone, somewhere will say…

“that looks like something Ralph McQuarrie painted.”

His presence will be missed but we will always have his artwork to remember him by. Check the images below and enjoy

Now I’ve always loved Star Wars art, and the folks at GeekTyrant reminded me again how amazing this franchise is. Yes I’m biased but I don’t really care.

I love these pieces and I’ve actually seen them before and Cédric Delsaux is one of my favourite photographers.

“French photographer Cédric Delsaux started out taking photos of what he calls “the peripheral zones” of modern cities – wastelands, empty deserts, scrapyards. Yet something was missing – and then he had the idea of placing characters from Star Wars into the images, giving C3PO and the Millennium Falcon modern settings that somehow seamlessly fit.

His haunting photos help us reflect on the urban environments of Paris and Dubai, the addition of a few stormtroopers and Darth Vader laying bare the effect of these domineering concrete landscapes.

George Lucas calls them ‘one of the most unique and intriguing interpretations that I have seen.'”
Huffington Post

Amazing stuff. And looks like George Lucas agrees. Find Dark Lens on Amazon to get these awesome prints.

More and more we see fan made posters pop up for almost anything these days, here is a brief example on some for the new reboot of Superman, Man Of Steel

This one is my favourite, showing more of Metropolis than Henry Cavill, who plays Superman. Here we can see Lexcorp and all its glory overpower Metropolis. JustHunt

Here we see General Zod, played by Micheal Shannon, this looks very cool, not what it’s actually going to look like but very cool nonetheless. SkinnyGlasses

Not so sure about this one, seeing as Zack Snyder is reinventing the franchise, this as a “Man Of Steel” poster doesn’t work for me. But don’t get me wrong it is still a great poster. Jo7a

We’ve all seen the new images from the set of Man Of Steel showing Mr Cavill in full gear in this pose, well most of us, this poster is a cool representation on that image. I like it, the colours and the mood fit perfectly. JohnathanRudolph

This is another cool poster, this one has Henry Cavill photoshopped into the suit, i like it very well done. Hobo95

This poster we’ve had on our blog before, Fan Made Man Of Steel, and I still love it, simple, evoking, striking in its colours, pose, and execution.

Daniel Moretti does very good work.

There’s no two ways about it, this was copied from the Dark Knight Rises fan made, I posted awhile go here, at first I didn’t like it, then I looked at it again, and still didn’t like it, unfortunately in my opinion it doesn’t work for Superman, however, as everyone is still under the notion of a darker, more intense Superman that Zack Snyder is bringing it does fit his style. alilzeker

Thanks to ForeverGeek for compiling the posters.

This cool piece by Otis Frampton, called Star Wars Sushi. The Rebel Alliance looks pretty annoyed at Darth for choking yet another of his Generals at the dinner table.
Behave Darth!
It was actually designed for a sushi bar and will be adorning the walls when opened.

This building looks very cool. the new Lucasfilm headquarters in singapore looks like the classic Sandcrawler from the Star Wars franchise from certain angles.

These renderings show the proposed building that will be completed in 2012. Looking forward to this one, I love how it sits in the site and the flow of the lines to the ground. A real geeky building for a modern age.

The new Lucasfilm office building will feature a 100 seat theater and start of the art digital production facilities, and it was designed by Architects, .

‘Even intergalactic super-villains need a holiday’ seems to be the message being conveyed in this piece of art by Franco Brambilla, entitled Odio l’Estate (I Hate Summer).

A nice addition to the ever-expanding universe of Star Wars art.
