Early STAR WARS Storyboard Are Familiar Yet So Bizarre

To promote the upcoming book Star Wars Storyboards: The Original  Trilogy early storyboards for the film trilogy have been released. The boards show the work of artist Alex Tavoularis, Joe Johnston, and Ivan Beddoes. The images look familiar but look like some kind of foreign knockoff. Depending on the production storyboards can be really basic and these have more detail than your average one. The key production art by illustrator Ralph McQuarrie is the closest to the final productions look, but it's interesting to see how much of the look was established in these early boards.
