Been kind of obsessed with WWI history lately. This painting is the opposite of nice but I really like it. Just wish I could find it in higher resolution

 

iwm_iwm_4415_large.jpg

 

The painting is titled 'Hell' and it depicts the Battle of Verdun. This one battle lasted 10 months and resulted in ~700,000 casualties. That's 70,000 people dying each month. Definitely seems like a hellish place to be.

I remember as a kid, before the Special Editions came out, buying these "The Making of Star Wars" books, featuring Ralph McQuarrie's artwork, featured above.

 

His paintings inspired a lot of the awesome visuals.

Dude was a visual genius.

 

 

The illustrator is best known for designing the look of Lucas' best-known characters, including Darth Vader, Chewbacca, R2-D2 and C-3PO, and also imagined sets for the hit sci-fi franchise.

 

He also created the alien spaceships in Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind and E.T., and won an Academy Award in 1985 for Visual Effects in Cocoon.

 

Lucas, who gave McQuarrie an uncredited role in The Empire Strikes Back, has hailed McQuarrie as a visionary.

 

He says, "Ralph McQuarrie was the first person I hired to help me envision Star Wars. His genial contribution, in the form of unequaled production paintings, propelled and inspired all of the cast and crew of the original Star Wars trilogy.
