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.

This project was going to be for Death Waltz Records releasing a special extended soundtrack for Zombie Holocaust, bit unfortunately the project never made it to final, so I finally decided to share the cover art I did for this.
Here are the original rough comps:
Once the desired design was chosen I did the detailed pencil art:
What I then decided to do is once i scanned my original pencil art in ( as back up – in case I screw it up in this next step) I took my airbrush and sprayed some tones into the pencil art and used white paint to pop out some of the details:
Once scanned in I started the digital painting process, i worked in a sort of anti clockwise manner , no real reason for working like that , just happened that way. My first pass was to lay down basic colour on a multiply layer , once that was done i moved onto painting in all the details:
And final colour balanced piece ….

Just wanted to do this for some time now
Here is the development sketches I did:
The very first rough idea :
I scanned that in and cleaned up the sketch , by redrawing it digitally. I also played around with adding text in the back ground.
I then printed this out and did a rough pencil sketch adding my additional details:
I still was not sold on the text , problem was that the artwork was covering allot of the text and I was concerned that it would not be readable. So in the final artwork I figured to go for a more traditional comic book layout.
