My only nitpick would be that the backgrounds aren’t neutral on TFA & TLJ like they are on all the other ones. Still look good though.

Thanks for the comments!

It’s funny that you mention this. This entire collection actually came to be just because of those character shots from TLJ! I hade those promotionals on my computer and wanted to use them, but there wasn’t anything like that at all for the rest of the series including the animated series, except the cyan/black promotionals of Rogue One and purple promotionals for Solo. I had to make my own character shots for movies 1-6 as none existed and the same for the animated series.

That’s why TFA and TLJ dont look like the rest 😃

^ Thanks!

The colors were pretty easy actually. My mind was already set to make III purple since that’s where Mace Windu has his standoff with Palpatine. Then I thought of the main colors of red, yellow, green and blue. Naturally, blue hed to be for IV, since Luke’s blue lightsaber is the first time we se lightsaber in action. Then I went on with red for V since that’s Vaders color, and finaly green for VI for Luke’s new saber.

For I and II, it was a bit more difficult, because I also wanted red for I, but finally chose orange since that is also a warm color like red, and ended with yellow for II to remind of the whole Geonosis thing.

That’s pretty much it 😃

Something I’m currently working on… expect a massive set coming soon!

Before me editing the stills:

The steps I went through:

  1. The original still unaltered.
  2. Cut out the still.
  3. Adjusted the colors including recoloring some parts so all stils match.
  4. Added extra detail to the stills and brought the colors to life.
  5. Added shadows.
  6. Added colored gradients.

The end result:

Here’s a long post of my Star Wars covers, that I finished within the last month. All are remakes of official covers from yesteryears.

First of, we’ve got the original VHS releases:

Then there’s the 1995 Domestic VHS release:

And the corresponding 1995 International VHS release:

Now we’ve got the 1997 Special Edition VHS in widescreen:

And of course, the corresponding fullscreen release:

And last, but not least, we’ve got remakes of the DVD covers.

I also made matching artwork of the Disney movies for the last set of covers - they are coming soon!

These are done. Did two versions for VII - one with, and one without the Roman numerals.

Still working on the seventh. The front took a while to make 😃 I might remove the stars though. But first, on to the back!

Thanks for all the inputs. Here are some updated versions.


For this, I've added clouds in the background, gave Anakin and Tatooine a color overhaul, added some kind of sandstorm at the bottom.


Anakin got a yellow tint to go with the background that has been recolored.


Removed all purple in the background and retouched it with black color. Added some fire sparks. For both versions, I added some blue color just on the top of Anakins head, to make it appear as if the lightsaber is really there.


Change the wholoe color layout, removed alot of grain, added clouds, gave Luke some warm colors to mix in with the back.


Recolored a lot of Dagobah, fixed some errors I made when attached a new head to the body, added a lot of fog.


Added green color on the side of Luke's head because of the lightsaber, played with the colors and added a touch of white behind Luke.

Working on something brand-new for Star Wars.

Let me take you through how these came to be...

First of all, I needed my 'hero shots' and came up with these six.



After I removed their useless lightsabers and retouched them, I needed some nice backgrounds.



Not quite happy with IV not being in the same style as the others, I then had to try something different. I also had to remove parts of Yoda and Luke's legs in the background of V.



Now I added some new lightsabers and fixed the back of V by coloring and cloning out Luke's legs and parts of Yoda. I did some Lucasing and edited out the two suns on the back of VI. Also did a new background for IV, by taking the shot of Luke watching out on the horizon and contract it. I used this nice shot:



Now, for the final part, I needed to install the TT I wanted to use along with my movie titles.



With the last part, I added some of the characters surrounding colors on themselves, to make it appear as if they were really standing there, and cut out from elsewhere.

---

So, when I realized that all character shots of Luke for V and VI were useless, I had to create my own.
For V I used the Dagobah shot and added another head.



VI is whole other story. No character shots were of useful quality, so I did what I didn't wanna do, but it turned out very nice. I used an action figure and added a headshot of Luke.



---

Now I really feel I created something new for Star Wars. And now on to the backs!
