Here are some of the film stills to get an Idea what the film is like:
From these film still I made up some thumbnails. Drew Struzan's work was an influence for this piece. When I showed Ben the the sketches, he informed me that the movie was not a horror/action film and had me take all the dead bodies I put in the trees out. The movie was more of a tale of the lion and the unicorns epic battle. I worked out some more thumbnails with him here and from those I arrived at this final sketch.
I run this sketch by Ben, we tweak it a bit and I move on the actual art. Here is the black and white from that.
I didn't have much time to begin with on this project so I decided to work digital when coloring the piece. (A technique I have begun to uses more and more as of late.) I pulled the color pallet from the film stills and then when about working on a Wacon Cintiq brushing in the colors and layered some textures on top to give it a air of hand made.
I handed the work over to Ben and he had a graphic designer lined up to do the Typography to finish off the poster. Unfortunately the graphic designer fell through and Ben had do the type on his own. The final work is up in Hamilton hall as of right now. I swung by there today and took some pictures.
