Yesterday night, my boyfriend (drumer of Hospital Food) asked me to create a poster to advertise their headlining event next year. I know these guys, obviously, and I know The Scumbrians relatively well to have already had a decent idea in mind of how I'd carry out this task.
I was happy with the concept and I liked the skull itself, but I really felt it was lacking some of that angry punk vibe it so desperately needed. It was far too cartoony. So I got out my lightbox and created a rougher version using a Pentel Brush Pen. And I loved it. From this point on, I was able to create the full poster without any real problems.
This was our first university project of the year and it has only just come to an end. The idea was to create a two page comic spread for the entire movie. I was given 'The Terminator'.
I drew out each piece in ink first and then scanned it all in to be coloured on Photoshop. The sizing and placement of the helicopter thing (I have no idea what it is) and the Terminator needed altered so there'd be a bit more focus on the Terminator. I'd initially drawn it up this way because I felt like the film revolved around its background context within all the flashbacks, etc., but upon reflection after being given some feedback I decided to mess around a bit with the sizing.
Overall, I'm fairly pleased with this. It definitely looks a hell of a lot better than last year's attempt (which will not be posted). After adding some silver foil onto the final pieces in the finished comics, I dare say it looks almost good. Almost.
