Ralph was one of the main reasons why the original Star Wars trilogy
was is so damn awesome. His work gave shape to what Star Wars came to be, in such a spectacular way that still to this day I gaze to the artwork he created, sometimes enjoying his artwork more than the movies themselves.
He’s early concepts of the main characters like Darth Vader, Luke and the droids are indeed one of the best representations of the true Star Wars spirit.
Rest in peace Ralph, may the force be with you… always.
