I guess that's one way to describe it. It just lacks detail, especially the background wall. And in person, the composition doesn't work for me; almost the entire left side of the print has nothing going on. You could chop off 10" on the left and lose nothing. Also, there is no "pop" from the streak of light and where it hits the city. Those spots should be BRIGHT and it's just...meh. :(

Fair assessment to be sure.

It works for me personally. The empty space on the left seems fitting, as it shows the void/space/mystery of the map room...I like how isolated Indy appears because of this. High stakes.
Agree with the light.

I had thoughts of having this, Fortress of Solitude, and Englert's Tatooine print all framed together, vertically...these three basically sum up my childhood. I think together, and from a distance, it would work better than on its own and up close.

It's not numbered so I'm unsure if there are any others. Came as part of a sub tube.

Ask about getting the AP version added here:

Anyone know what the run on the AP version is?


So I'm curious if he slipped R2/3PO onto the wall somewhere? Also I really like that Tanis/Gold version... :drool:
