Much like Syd Mead there’s always a Ralph McQuarrie picture that I’ve never seen before. One of these is obviously from Empire Strikes Back and perhaps the other one is a study for Bespin Cloud City from the same film – either way his work is always wonderfully-rendered.

His compositions are simple without being simplistic, his technologies have a real sense of purpose. The colours are always pleasing and despite often depicting battles or confrontations his images always seem to suggest freedom and a sense of fun.
