Brouha on Mustafar by oldredjalopy Brouha on Mustafar by oldredjalopy
This poster is based on the old boxing match promotional posters of the 30s and 40s, here advertising the big showdown between Obi-Wan Kenobi and the newly monickered Darth Vader.

UPDATE: Have now uploaded 2 follow up posters here [link] and here [link]

2nd UPDATE: Thanks everyone for your feedback on this piece and for those of you who have requested prints. Unfortunately, due to copyright restrictions, I can't supply any of my Star Wars themed artwork as prints. Sorry.

Hey there. They aren't based on poster templates. I used a range of paper textures from ~bashcorpo ([link]). He has a load of great paper textures downloadable for free from his website - [link] Check it out!

This is cool, this reminds me of the "Fantasy Warfare" section in WWE Magazine, they always do posters in the Mag for the matches fans want to see!

Exceptional. Lucas needs to grant you a license so you can print up a bunch of posters, take them to Celebration, and make a ton of money.
