Ralph McQuarrie, the artist who helped George Lucas bring Stars Wars to the big screen, has died aged 82.
The conceptual designer created the look of characters including Darth Vader, Chewbacca and R2-D2 and C-3PO.
He also worked on the original Battlestar Galactica TV series and Steven Spielberg films E.T. and Cocoon, for which he won an Oscar.

RIP indeed. While I obviously don't know the man, his work on Star Wars changed the way we viewed Science Fiction. Before Star Wars, it was all gleaming new consoles. After Star Wars, the sets tended to have a slightly dirty, old, lived in look.
