TIE Fighter poster by MightyOtaking TIE Fighter poster by MightyOtaking

So, here's the poster for my animated TIE Fighter short film.
The film is here, by the way:…

I always loved those really classy oil/acrylic-painted movie posters by folks like Drew Struzan, with all kinds of stuff going on in the background for you to spend ages dissecting with your eyes. You know the ones. So I wanted to try something like that, except in the cel-shaded style of the short film.

The results are nowhere near the original Star Wars movie poster level of quality or composition, but I guess it does the job.

EDIT - Some folks are asking for prints of this poster, so I upped the size. You can just download the fullsize image, print it yourselves and save a bit of cash.
Also, additional stuff -
The music track by Zak -…
And character info/design documents -…

I loved the movie I really hope lusacarts or disney takes into consideration making an star wars anime like that. It fits perfectly for some reason. I would buy the dvd release.

Please say that you will make this into a full anime series! I've watched this short a few times on Youtube and it just looks better and better each time! Just think, if you do make this into a series, you'd be the first to do a star wars anime!

PS: I especially love the female Tie bomber pilot! She is by far my favorite character in this short film.

This poster is Fire! Just wow... Lucasfilm should have made a goddamn anime! I watched the short film and ohh my god, add voice actors, a story arc and you guys have an Imperial perspective from those three pilots during the events of Episode 5 to Episode 6.

Absolutely astounding short film. I was seriously blown away. Your short film inspired me to start writing my own TIE Fighter short-stories and episode scripts. Thank you so much for making such a 1000% cool video.

Amazing Work Sir, Top Row in my book buddy!!
krypt-0 Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2016
Damn! This is awesome!

The poster, the movie, the design document. It all shows that you have put a lot of thought and effort into every aspect of it.
To be honest, I'm not much of a Star Wars fan, but I'd watch a movie or series made it this style.

PS: Ada rocks! She's awesome!

great job! I absolutely love your short film. it's by far the best fan film I've seen. :D
DestinyDecade Featured By Owner May 1, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
An amazing short film. Makes me wish if it was an anime or heck an intro scene to a TIE Fighter remake. It would have been awesome having three protagonists having to handle life in the Empire while dealing with rebels and what not.

I can't put in to words how much I absolutely adored your short film, I am disappointed in myself that I lack the words to form sentences to show my appreciation and adoration for this utterly fantastic piece of Star Wars fan media, the attention to detail, the knowledge of the lore, you've made something so perfectly akin to the canon of Star Wars that it feels like I'm watching a clip from a fully-licensed Japanese Animation for Star Wars.

I salute you.

Watched that awesome animation for this piece. STELLAR!!!
delta7Xx Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2016

(da was misbehaving today, but i finally got it to work enough for me to view the image -w-)

Just watched the film on Youtube -- you do fantastic work!

It's like if the Gundam franchise with 1990s anime artwork had a child with Star Wars.
StormyTheTrooper Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I always wanted to ask now that I found you on DA, did you ever come up with names for your cast?
DaRatBastid Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2016
Indeed, he did.  You can find them by clicking on the "character info/design documents" link below the picture and downloading the PDF file from there.
