Poster I did for Garth Manor Cinema , wanted to do something that really pops so I chose to go with a sort of comic book style illustration
Here are the original rough layouts
Then the revised layout of the chosen composition .

So now I can show the poster artwork I did for Frankenstein created Bikers
My goal with the poster was to capture the action and excitement like the old 80’s VHS action video covers.
Info on the movie can be found here:
So here is the first comps I did for the poster layout , I kept them small so i could concentrate on layout and prevent myself from getting stuck on details.
Once the preferred layout was chosen I then produced a rough revised comp/layout
Then the process started of detail work , I did a complete black and white tonal value painting first, this way I could make sure the elements on the image popped the way I wanted them too:
Final colour version with text and with out text , I also added allot of looser bold brush strokes to create the sense of action and movement, this is something new to me as my work is normally very stiff and static.
Finally a massive thanks to James Bickert for letting me work on this awesome project

I am working up a series of posters / artworks for a custom culture art show , for my submission I am doing poster based on actresses from the adult industry, either be film or magazines whatever. But for the artworks i want to make them sexy but not sleazy so there in lies the challenge for me . For the look of the pieces I want to go for very bold colours and line art , and the final printed piece I want to simulate large halftone print dots.
Here is my first piece , this was also the test piece for the format of the artwork.
Here is a look at the pencil art, the text was done in 3D and comped together in photoshop.
Close up look at the full res image , to see the halftone effect i want to achieve.

Been a while since my last update , reason is I had a hard drive fail and a bunch of work that I wanted to share online is gone now. But saying that its time for some new goodies so here we go:
These were the proposed thumbs , after I had read the synopsis for the film a pretty solid idea for the composition pop into my head that I wanted to play with.
After a couple of tweaks it was onto drawing up the detailed pencil version of the artwork , I drew the final piece on tracing paper , the reason for this each element was drawn separately so that if I needed to move elements around in Photoshop to further balance the composition I could do that.
Final digitally coloured version, I also could not resist doing a worn out version.

This was a personnel commission I did for a client that wanted a mock film poster for he’s girlfriend, it was a really fun project breaking away from the usual horror themes and trying some dark fantasy .
Because the artwork was a surprise gift i could not get a modeled pose so i used some internet photo refs and comped together a 2 pose options.
I made two comp options :
Once a comp was chosen and some additional changes were implemented i produced a refined sketch for approval.
Then once the sketch was fleshed out I created the very detailed pencil drawing , that got digitized and coloured in Photoshop. For the font I bought some fonts from http://www.blambot.com/ really great font at very reasonable prices.
