Star Wars Propaganda Poster 1 by Dejas Star Wars Propaganda Poster 1 by Dejas
An idea i've had for a while, but never given much thought to.
Was procrastinating for a while the other day so i did this.
I've always liked the Galactic Empire in Star Wars, and the recruitment posters i've seen around the place for the Empire have also always intrigued me.
Thought i would do some propaganda posters for some of the different organisations in Star Wars :D

Propaganda Poster No.1:
The Galactic Empire - Help Them Build a Better Galaxy


**Edit -> Some people were commenting on how the writing was getting lost in all the white so i've changed it and improved it the way i had originally envisaged. Try and picture it stuck up outside the recruiting office in some backwater settlement on Tatooine lol**
**
Further Edit -> Tweaked the texture because the whole thing felt a little too dark. Changed wording as well.

This is a really amazing poster:-D
Except I'm kind of concerned about the background....
it kind of resembles the rising sun flag of Japan, which was a flag used by Japan when it conquered other nations and is a symbol of militarism.
It is known as a war criminal flag, and is the pretty much the same as the Hakenkreuz flag of the Nazis.
I know that you might have got the idea from other propaganda posters and they are mostly covered by the pictures so its really really slight but I was just concerned...It would be really nice of you if you could consider changing the background maybe....?:-)
Thank you so much for reading:-D And once again, really nice poster!:-D

Hello deja i love the stuff you have created so far. I work for a small website clanofthefanboys.com (the website is down for the moment we had to much traffic and the bandwidth was excidedit as a result and wont be up until april 1st)where we review movies games and such. Well we are having a special all of April and we are calling it star wars month. Anyway a friend of mine came by your picture here and showed it to me. I wanted to ask you if we could feature it on our site as our banner for the next month but with a slight change to the slogan "The Clan Of The Fanboys Needs You". I wanted to ask you for permission to use this wonderful pice of art because of the copyright you have on the picture we even want to give you credit for it on our site and will set up a link to you devinart page on our site for the next month for our fans to see the other arts that you have made. This would be greatly apperciated and a great honor if you would consider letting us use the pice for the next month. You can view any reviews we have done on our blip.tv and youtube page. The links are [link]

Just to critique, I don't think the text stands out enough... perhaps you should try using red (or something) for it. Yea... I really think this picture needs some red somewhere... maybe in the background's white lines... maybe in the text. But I still like it.

I like this alot, but the text gets lost below with the craziness of the black and white stripes with black and white text. Perhaps another color or a darker, thicker outline?

Great work though!

yeah i was worried about that also. it really does seem to get lost, but i wanted to keep the same colours and tones etc, and the fdarker the outline the more it looks like some powerpoint word art. i think i will take another look at it again
