Ralph McQuarrie tribute sketch


A sketch I did as a tribute to Ralph McQuarrie for the display window at ILM. At first I had a really hard time deciding what to do. Eventually, I ended up pulling up images of my favorite Ralph paintings on my computer as inspiration. I started sketching in my sketchbook with the hopes of clearing my head and coming up with a good idea. But I had so much fun sketching, I just kept going and going and ended up with this...
