Star Wars Collection

Postby Matush » Jun Sat 02, 2012 2:06 pm

Hey guys and gals,
After a rather long absence from my WIP, I hope that not so very rusty.

M starts a new project, I hope that you will like it and I hope that you will have lots of suggestions.

Very initial phase of the project. I plan to add all the characters from episode 4 plus do battle stellar spacecraft. I hope that I will succeed.

What do you think of the beginning of the project?

Unfortunately, the Star Wars materials are not very good quality in the network, but I will try to pull them by using the filters.

Looks good so far! But the Millennium Falcon is backwards. The cockpit can't be on that side of the ship.

I like the start, have seen a lot of SW covers done, but being a fan of several of your other cover sets, I am quite curious to see where you will take them, I'm sure they will be unique.

I think the motion blur on the left-side X-Wing works, but it doesn't really on the right-side one in the foreground.

Yes, better!  I think I prefer the earlier TT, but I'm willing to see where you're going with this one.

Minor issues--that Vader has the wrong armor on for Episode IV (that looks like E3 vader), and same with Chewie--that's him from Revenge of the Sith, not Star Wars.

Episode IV Vader has his robes go OVER his chest armor, and he has a point in between his eyes. Others have it going under his chest armor, and a flat spot on the helmet between the eyes.

Interesting TT. How about a line on each side of "Star Wars"? To parallel the one on the bottom.  I like the back so far.

Vader looks much better.  Technically, that shot is from The Empire Strikes Back, but it's much closer than the Revenge of the Sith Vader. ;)

Chewie is very different, but I understand if you're still looking.  I'll see if I can find some good images to upload for you.

Here's a picture of Chewie from Star Wars, Matush:

Edit: I also added a couple of Vader to the same album if you're interested.

Thanks Imrahil, I worked with Chewie.

ohh, I used this image of Vader

VaderSD mini.jpg


Unfortunately, the Star Wars materials are very poor quality, and I try to choose them to be the best.

If I manage to find Vader from episode 4  with a good quality, I replace him again.

Thanks for your help m8, appreciate it .

Update soon ;)

I'm liking what you have so far. I think if you start adding more to it then it will start to look a little more cluttered.
