TIE Fighter poster

2K Favourites

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 -

Awesome job, Paul! Surprised that LucasFilms LTD. hasn't called you yet to produce the cartoon series.

A 3 minute video that had more effort and heart than the entire third trilogy. Keep up the good work!

You sir need to be recognised more for your incredible art skills and amazing animation techniques. It may have taken u 4 years to make that film but talent can't be rushed.

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.
fantocan's avatar
YES, I been watching this for years, since it didnt have sound, never get bored.

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.
