Retro Star Wars Poster!

I came across the concept art for a poster for the original Star Wars done back in 1977(?) by, at least from what I could find to date, Howard Chaykin. It's a cool piece and I thought it would be fun to actually take the concept and finish it. I changed only a few things. The type as I don't think "kids" today really know who Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon are. Shame. I also changed the direction of the X-Wing flying behind Luke as I thought the rear-end of the ship seemed weird to me. I also added a few more.

Hope you like it. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Enjoy!






And here is the original comp:
