A legend in the conceptual art world, Ralph McQuarrie was hired to create concept art for the television show Battlestar Galactica (1978). The guy has a great imagination and even managed to infuse the show with a cool 70s vibe.Galactica.tv has a whole set of amazing paintings. Here are some of the best ones.
Next to doing concept sketches for the designs of the ships and aliens on Battlestar Galactica 1978, Ralph McQuarrie was also asked to paint 24 color images to be used on the first script of the pilot "Saga of a Star World". This script (of which only 50 were printed) was written to convince the studios to pick up this costly project and the illustrations helped to explain and visualize the story.
What do you think of the artwork?
