Ralph Angus McQuarrie (June 13, 1929 – March 3, 2012) was an American conceptual designer and illustrator. His career included work on the original STAR WARS TRILOGY!!!

I had to do on Ralph as I appreciate how he created the art of Star Wars. If it wasn't for him, I don't think anyone would appreciate how beautiful the galaxy could look like. I like how he shows how near and far objects are and the different gradient of color tones, its amazing how realistic his artworks look

As beautiful as Ralph’s paintings are, he was always quick to point out they were never intended to be seen by anyone beyond those involved in bringing the film to life. He often said that had he known, he would have tried to put more of a polish on them (as if they needed it). 

Thanks for reading !!
