Feeling good about these, so I’m gonna chase that feeling. It’s good practice, anyway.
Episode I came out on the last day of junior high, so my friends and I went to see it…about 5 or 6 times in the theater. Jar Jar Binks notwithstanding, there are some elements in this film that are visually really excellent: the pod race, the epic scale and backdrop of Coruscant, and any scene involving Darth Maul.
In fact, this piece by Doug Chiang is one of two images that I can pinpoint down to my inspiration to become an artist (the other being Yoji Shinkawa’s concept art that was included in the manual of Metal Gear Solid).
