Really great work with this poster!
I’m not 100% sold on Leia being in the middle but I see why you did it this way and I like the reasoning. But I would prefer another shot of Leia. I don’t really know why, her face looks a little weird to me but I can’t really describe what it is that bothers me.
Also I miss the Emperor on the poster but I wouldn’t know where to put him. He’d fit right below Vader instead of the Sandtrooper but then he’d seem less important / powerful than Vader which wouldn’t be the right thing to imply I think. But having him centered in the top would make him appear to be more important than he actually is, so I guess leaving him out is the right choice. But I still miss him and Ben.
As a sidenote: Having him in the top middle would be perfect for a prequel poster in this style I think.
And finally a question: How did you achieve this style? I assume you used Photoshop or something similar to make actual photos look painted. I’m asking because I tried this before but failed horribly while it looks amazing on your poster 😃
