I thought i’d post this “Star Wars Millennium Falcon” original painting by Noriyosha Ohrai that’s on Ebay at the moment.
Noriyosha Ohrai’s work is quite well known as he painted quite a lot of Star Wars art, much of which was used as covers for various Japanese Star Wars books. This painting is dated from 1982 and is and impressive 20″ by 30″, (28″ by 38.5″ in it’s frame). It’s signed at the bottom.
I think it’s lovely. I like the lighting of the Falcon which is quite dramatic. The broad brush strokes look rough at first, but comes together quite nicely when you view the entire picture.
I think that original artwork is probably my favourite part of collecting and there is something very nice in the thought of owning a one off piece, so i think that this would be quite an addition to any collection, but the current asking price of $180,000 puts this way out of the league of my little collection.
