The Empire Strikes Back by OtisFrampton The Empire Strikes Back by OtisFrampton
This is a digital commission featuring a poster for my second favorite movie.

This piece was drawn and colored in Photoshop CS4 using a Wacom Cintiq 21UX.

You can watch a recording of me coloring (some of) this piece on my Ustream channel here: [link]

I like how you went with a more maroon color. Most Empire covers appeal to the winter of Hoth in the beginning.

I was going for the look of the lighting in the carbon freezing chamber, as if the images were embedded in the carbonite slab.

Yeah, so many Empire posters go for the Hoth/blue/cold look. My favorite scene and imagery in all of Star Wars comes from the carbon chamber scene, so i went for that look.

The scene with Han's famous improv line? Yeah, I think my most memorable moment was Luke stalking Vader through the various recesses of the ventilation area at the end. Anyways, great piece.

(I prefer this over the Raiders poster, but that's probably because I prefer Star Wars over Indy...)

Awesome idea using frozen Han Solo as the background for this. I can just imagine how awesome that would look if Drew Struzan painted it.
