Force Awakens Fan Art
Zander here, I've just completed work on my "Force Awakens
" fan poster. Over the last couple of years I've been practicing VFX in my spare time (not a bad thing to learn in this industry!), and recently set myself the challenge of building a 3D model of the new stormtrooper helmet for Episode VII. The modeling and texturing were all completed in Blender
with some additional elements and grading completed in Adobe Photoshop.
Like many, we're immensely excited by the new film and can't wait for those opening titles to roll!
Feel free to download the poster for your wallpaper, a hi res version is below. The poster is free to distribute so long as it is correctly credited (created by Zander Weaver, ellianderpictures.co.uk)
