X-Wing Fighter Photoart
These shots showcase two pieces of photoart (photographic elements combined with air-brushed paint), which were used to generate two images from the front of the package for the Micro Collection X-Wing Fighter toy.

First up is the primary image, the one used on the front panel of the box. Gotta love that sky, all of which was created via air-brushing.

Next we have the image used to generate the insert photo from the upper left of the front panel, which was intended to demonstrate the crash feature of the toy.

In this close-up, you might be able to see that the X-Wing element of the piece is actually a cut-out, which has been pasted onto the yellow background. Both the X-Wing and the pilot figure have also been enhanced through the application of painted highlights.
