Binary Sunset by ApneicMonkey Binary Sunset by ApneicMonkey
A great artist died today.

A man whose skill at turning ideas into visuals that could excite even the most cynical Hollywood producer and get them to green-light a film called Star Wars.

A man who was a true inspiration to myself and many others.

Rest in Peace, Ralph McQuarrie. Your voice may no longer be heard in our world but you leave behind a legacy of beautiful work that will never leave us.

This really a fantastic piece! The more I watch Star Wars, the more I realize how pivotal this moment is for the fate of a young boy - compelled to a shadowed vision of something greater despite the twilight of a twin sunset.

THE iconic Star War scene, according to many. This is the part the audience finally grasps the fact that they are officially in a fantastic setting completely out of this world, and much awesomeness is to be ensured.

As Lucas said "His genial contribution, in the form of unequalled production paintings, propelled and inspired all of the cast and crew of the original Star Wars trilogy. When words could not convey my ideas, I could always point to one of Ralph's fabulous illustrations and say, 'do it like this'."
That is so true. Thanks for giving out a tribute to a great man.
