So, here's the poster for my animated TIE Fighter short film.
The film is here, by the way: www.youtube.com/watch?v=PN_CP4…

I always loved those really classy oil/acrylic-painted movie posters by folks like Drew Struzan, with all kinds of stuff going on in the background for you to spend ages dissecting with your eyes. You know the ones. So I wanted to try something like that, except in the cel-shaded style of the short film.

The results are nowhere near the original Star Wars movie poster level of quality or composition, but I guess it does the job.

EDIT - Some folks are asking for prints of this poster, so I upped the size. You can just download the fullsize image, print it yourselves and save a bit of cash.
Also, additional stuff -

Your art and animated shorts are AMAZING!!! If at all possible, another Star Wars movie would be greatly appreciated (no matter how short)!

Like a mix of Macross, Yamato and Gundam. You should do a full series of this, or ay least a comic/manga.

MAN, come on make a series, or at least some more cool space battles, with imperial point of view of course.

Been a fan for many years man even when it had no sound and was smaller, please do more!

I could watch this short back to back for hours. The only downside of it is that it's only a short and not a full series.

Great poster, yet the .JPEG format makes it blurry when I downloaded the poster on my computer. I had to change to .PNG so the details would be sharper than in .JPEG.

I watched it, and was blown away. If you were to ever make a full movie or show out of this, I would watch the s***t out of it.

The creator of the cartoon also posted some additional materials - links in the video, AFAIK.
