PENCIL UNIVERSE! 'STAR WARS' STORYBOARDS: DAY SIX - "IT'S A TRAP!"
In eager anticipation of the UK release of the lavish new STAR WARS STORYBOARDS: THE ORIGINAL TRILOGY hardcover by J.W. Rinzler, published by ABRAMS, AFICIONADO presents a six-day tribute to the incredible art works of the diverse visualists whose key contributions helped bring to life the defining three movies of 1977, 1980 and 1983.
Our Day Six finale showcases the impressive style of freelancer David Russell. Under enormous time pressures in their desires to create a spectacular ending to the saga with EPISODE VI, Joe Johnston and ILM were soon recruiting specially chosen outside artists to help with the vital storyboarding, especially on the films barnstorming second half and its numerous dramatic and action-packed conflicts taking place on the forest moon of Endor, or above with the ominous, weapons-packed Death Star II. As seen with this impressive frame, Russell would soon become a privileged member of a small and very exclusive club able to shape the thrilling live-action and special effects elements for the movie- an experience he found thoroughly rewarding, especially as a long-time enthusiast of George Lucas's universe.
