CLASSIC ART: LUKE'S ON THE MENU!
Luke Skywalker prepares to take on the dreaded pet of Jabba the Hutt, the Rancor, in this great piece of evolving work by the late Ralph McQuarrie in 1982/83 for RETURN OF THE JEDI. This would be a commercial portfolio and publicity piece of conceptual art during the films post production phase rather than pre-production.
For more on McQuarrie's JEDI work, check out J.W. Rinzler's blog here: The Official Star Wars Blog | How To Spot a Ralph McQuarrie and this four minute clip from the Ralph McQuarrie Retrospective film: The Official Star Wars Blog | SWCVI: Ralph McQuarrie Retrospective: First 4 Minutes
