'Guardians of the Galaxy' Art Includes Incredible 'Star Wars' Mash-Up
The folks over at Blurppy have had some pretty fantastic contributions come together for their Poster Posse features that allows artists to pay tribute to some timely blockbusters. We've features some great pieces for Godzilla and X-Men: Days of Future Past, and now it's Marvel's forthcoming Guardians of the Galaxy that gets the same treatment. The first round of submissions have just been unveiled, and while they include plenty of great works, there's one that just stand outs more than the others, because it's an incredible mash-up of Guardians of the Galaxy with one of the iconic posters for Star Wars. Look!
Here's the artwork from Blurppy's Poster Posse for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy:

Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn (Slither, Super). Brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand. The Marvel Studios film arrives in theaters August 1st, 2014.

That second one needs to go on my wall. Paper. But I don't want to change my season 1 and season 2 Rick Grimes wallpapers.

My favourite one is at the bottom, but it's too clean, added a little grain and some colour tweaks because I'm sad

Here's the bottom one with a little grain. Can't get images to load, I give up.

These are outstanding, why aren't these the sort of posters that Marvel actually puts out?

Marvel seem to be trying to do covers like this at the moment, but it's such a big machine it always seems a bit behind. They are picking up a lot of independent artists just now. Seems for movie posters it just has to be big faces in Photoshop for the big sell, bit sad really, people are more intelligent than movie companies think.
