One of the greatest science fiction artistic visionaries has passed on, I speak of Ralph McQuarrie the creative talent behind some of the greatest Sci-fi Movies and TV shows….

Ralph McQuarrie

Ralph McQuarrie at work

He influenced the look of the Original Star Wars films, later the Indiana Jones and the original Battlestar Galactica series long has his work inspired me and many others, due to this sad news I am posting some of his work here as a tribute to his work and memory

Star Wars RMQ (1)

Ralph McQuarrie Falcon

Y-Wing Approch

X-Wing Trench Run

RMQ CBSG (1)

RMQ CBSG (3)

These are some of my favourite concept paintings created by Mr McQuarrie for both the iconic Star Wars Movies and the Battlestar Galactica TV series.

His memory will live on in his work.

RIP

While some time ago I decided to remove these images to focus on my work, but I feel that this is a justified exception.

Galactica 001

You see a few days ago I started to do some early design work on his concept drawing for the Galactica.

  1. Another sad day for the planet.
    I have his art in the form of the “Art of” Star Wars books since I was a teen.
    To say that this gent has been an influence (on me) would be an understatement
