Default Ralph McQuarrie 1929 - 2012

Its a sad day.



One of the greatest science fiction artistic visionaries has passed on, I speak of Ralph McQuarrie the creative talent behind some of the greatest Sci fi movies and TV shows ever....

He influenced the look of the Original Star Wars films, later the Indiana Jones and the original Battlestar Galactica series.

long has his work inspired me.

RIP

He created some of the best sci fi concept art. Truly inspiring works of art. He was one of the best. His art will live on.

Sad day indeed.

Just looked through his portfolios of the original Star Wars trilogy. For me he was the best of the best and he'll be sorely missed. RIP Mr McQuarrie.

I made this suggestion at F3D and I'll make here as well. It'd be nice if we could put up some tribute artwork in the Gallery to the memory of Ralph McQuarrie. Replicate in 3d your favourite Ralph McQuarrie painting. It could be Star Wars or Galactica, Star Trek, ET or whatever cos' there is a lot to choose from.

I think it'd be cool idea and a great way for new and old members to get together. If your strength is pictures then make a picture, if it's modeling then make a model. If you don't feel that you're up to it then just tell us about your favourite Ralph McQuarrie picture.
