Star Wars has gotten beautiful art from great artists. Please post hi-res art that you’ve found or that you’d like to get in hi-res.

Thread rules:
Please do not post concept/fan art from movies not yet released.
This is for image-only art, no photos. Stuff you could print out and hang it on your wall if you’d want to. The higher res the better.
Not all art is awesome - random images or photos you can post here: http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/id/46819
Comments with only disliking and with zero contribution are not welcomed.
Other comments are welcomed, people can give props, discuss the subject matter and they can also state if some things don’t belong here in their opinion especially if it’s continous. If you are here only to complain then please move along.

I’ll start (right click for bigger):

And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.

Well, it may not be everyone’s ‘cup of tea,’ but I’ve always been a huge fan of the SW art of Cam Kennedy.
He’s a comic artist so there’s a lot to choose from, but here’s some of my favourite pices of his.

(PS, I’m always on the lookout for high-res copies of Cam Kennedy SW art.)

^ I didn’t know the Coneheads were part of the SW universe. Crossover?

They tend to bleed into the universe… yes.

Star Wars art by Bruce Timm (the guy behind Batman the Animated Series back in the early 90’s)
I think his drawing style has a nice retro feel to them, these drawing (especially the first two) feel very much like they could have been from a Marvel comic back in the late 70’s.

I’m not quite sure how prudish the NSFW rules are here so I’ll just add the link to this last one just to be safe;

I don’t think warm-up sketches and unfinished pieces fall under “awesome art” but art is subjective.

I’m pretty sure that any form of drawing can be called art, but I’ll avoid sketches in the future.
I just though they were pretty neat.
Also I’ve never found any colorized version of these drawings so either Bruce Timm was just making some SW doodles for fun or this is from some cancelled project.

To make up for me ignorance though, I offer this piece of awesome (“finished”) art;

Another great piece of ‘Splinter of the Minds Eye’ cover art;

And the cover art for every issue of ‘Shadow’s of the Empire’;

Well, people have speculated that Snoke might be really small. Hence the oversized hologram.
So I guess this kinda makes sense.

I hope they don’t go this route because it would be weird to see another short force sensitive being flipping around. Also we don’t need anymore heavy handed OT callbacks. Any callbacks to the OT needs to be VERY subtle or the whole conversation of rehashing will be brought up again.

I believe in Rian Johnson

Agreed. Also that’s why I said “kinda makes sense.” I mostly just thought it was funny, and it reminded me of that comic strip I linked to.

I mean they can make Snoke 5 feet tall and the oversized hologram would still work they just don’t need to make him Yoda small.

That’s a good one, almost posted it. Hi-res would be nice.

Seriously. Also a version without the text and Han Solo cropped out would be nice as well.
