Here's an awesome poster design that mixes together Star Wars with the style of Samurai. The poster is actually a collaboration between artist Otis Frampton and Sillof who is the artist that created a great collection of custom made samurai Star Wars action figures that we showed you a few months ago. The poster design for this Samurai Wars turned out pretty freakin' awesome! I would love to see this turned into a animated series.
Here's a note from the artist,
A few months ago I approached him with the offer of creating a movie poster-style image based on one of his custom Star Wars figure sets and he approved. I chose the Samurai Wars set and this image is the result.
Sillof does amazing work with his custom figures, not just in the figures themselves but also in the detailed stories and character backgrounds he creates for them. One could spend hours viewing the creations on his website (and I have).
This image will be available as a print very soon, so stay tuned for details!
The characters in this piece were all drawn separately on 9x12 Bristol in pencil and colored in Photoshop CS4 using a Wacom Cintiq 21UX.
