TIE Fighter poster by MightyOtaking TIE Fighter poster by MightyOtaking

So, here's the poster for my animated TIE Fighter short film.
The film is here, by the way:…

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 -
The music track by Zak -…
And character info/design documents -…

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.
fantocan Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2018
YES, I been watching this for years, since it didnt have sound, never get bored.

Man phenomenal poster. Looks amazing.

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.

That's cool.

I loved the movie I really hope lusacarts or disney takes into consideration making an star wars anime like that. It fits perfectly for some reason. I would buy the dvd release.
Cvlsoldier Featured By Owner Edited May 22, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Please say that you will make this into a full anime series! I've watched this short a few times on Youtube and it just looks better and better each time! Just think, if you do make this into a series, you'd be the first to do a star wars anime!

PS: I especially love the female Tie bomber pilot! She is by far my favorite character in this short film.
Helion98 Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2017
This poster is Fire! Just wow... Lucasfilm should have made a goddamn anime! I watched the short film and ohh my god, add voice actors, a story arc and you guys have an Imperial perspective from those three pilots during the events of Episode 5 to Episode 6.

I remember watching this short and being blown away by how impressive it was. :)

That's absolutely bloody awesome, and this is coming from a guy whose current icon is the Rogue Squadron emblem. You have my respect.

Absolutely astounding short film. I was seriously blown away. Your short film inspired me to start writing my own TIE Fighter short-stories and episode scripts. Thank you so much for making such a 1000% cool video.

Amazing Work Sir, Top Row in my book buddy!!
krypt-0 Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2016
Damn! This is awesome!

The poster, the movie, the design document. It all shows that you have put a lot of thought and effort into every aspect of it.
To be honest, I'm not much of a Star Wars fan, but I'd watch a movie or series made it this style.

PS: Ada rocks! She's awesome!
