Ralph McQuarrie Star Wars concept art

This is one of Ralph McQuarrie's concept paintings for Star Wars.  I am fascinated by the changes that take place in creative endeavors from the initial concept to the realization.  According to the caption, the figure on the left was inspired by a World War II photo of a Navy pilot.  He simply changed the uniform but otherwise used it as is.  There are a few small but interesting differences in the ship designs.
