Chomey? Chorney? I've googled, but found nothing... any guesses?

 

Lol. "chorney art" puts him right at the top of Google (at least for me). It's interesting to note that he seems to have worked on Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade... Did he do the final poster art? If he didn't, then Drew Struzan owes him a thanks!

Yeah, I don't know why I failed at googling him... Crusade's final poster art was done by Struzan, but who knows who "got inspired" by whom?

 

Anyway, the layout of the thing was pretty much determined by the ad:

It's a pity that it's cropped on the right side, so it can't be centered. There is a landscape-version of the ad, which works a bit better composition-wise:

Let's hope Steve will reply, and fix me up with the full artwork.

Yeah, that landscape version does look a lot better.

 

I think it's pretty clear that Drew S. must have at least seen Steven's C's stuff... it has so much in common. Also, it's interesting to note that SC did some Indy Crystal Skull stuff. Maybe they just paid him for some ideas and DS takes over the rest?

What makes you think that Chorney did those drawings first? For all we know they could've been made AFTER Struzan made the main movie poster, and Chorney was asked to mimic that style for other advertisement stuff... they could've even be made years later, for advertising merchandise, video-releases and whatnot...

 

I somehow doubt that Struzan was the type to use other people's concepts... it was done to him with the "Young Indy" video covers, and he hated that.

I know this is a LucasArts poster thread, I hope you don't mind posting anyway. (Just let me know if it's off limits.)

 

Here is a project suggestion for Laserschwert. Click for the hires images.

You didn't actually suggest a project... what IS the project?

 

Edit: Oh, you want the big one to have the color of the smaller one... well, no. That's not really part of this project here.

It's still a little blurry, and I guess I'll make a sharper version of it sometime.

 

Edit:

By the way, Steven Chorney has replied to my mail, and he will try to send me a scan of his "The Dig"-artwork when he has a little more time.

I have already tried to upscale that Purcell artwork a bit, but I'll wait until that eBay-auction is a couple of days or weeks older, so that no one feels ripped off (especially not Steve). There are two more Purcell-concepts in the "Rogue Leaders" book, but one of them (that painting of Wally's ship) is a double spread, and impossible to scan.
