See-Through Star Wars Posters (3 pics)

We give major props to British artist Olly Moss for these awesome see-through Star Wars posters. Colorful silhouettes of C-3PO, Darth Vader and Boba Fett are filled in with detailed imagery from Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. “It was so intimidating!” the artist told Wired. “There is such a wealth of great Star Wars art out there already, from paid professionals and from enthusiastic fans. I suppose my main aim was to make a set of Star Wars posters that were a little different from what people are used to seeing from the franchise, but still retained that essential Star Wars feel. I started by re-watching the original movies with a sketchbook on my lap, and just sort of went from there.” Still, there was no backing away from the challenge. “If you're as big a nerd as I am, you just can't say no to Star Wars,” Moss said. via [wired], [scene360]
