Concept artist Ralph McQuarrie (1929-2012)


Concept artist Ralph McQuarrie passed away yesterday. Ralph being the artist who created the basic design of See-Threepio; and by using his first concept drawings, helped uncle George convince the studio to give a green light for the Star Wars Project.

I have been admired by his talent and visionary concept art since I discovered his work when I was a kid, this is truly a great loss for the arts and film community.

RIP, the true maker of See-Threepio. emoticon

I got a big pit in my stomach when I found out about this yesterday, and still have it today. I am so saddened by this, he was such a huge influence on me and that's why I am an artist today. I would never have considered it to be a career without his inspiration. I will miss him greatly. emoticon

This is a signed print I recently got from him. The one piece that inspired Anthony Daniels to take the role of 3PO. "This is all your fault!" emoticon
