So yeah, had to make something ridiculous! Have been doing too much "serious" paintings. And this contest just felt right to go nuts on So here's my crab snail, with his DA jester hat and wacom pen! He crawls around, leaving nothing but destruction and agony in his path!!
Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter, specifically from a "...Chamber of Secrets" film poster.
The first image was more of a sketchy doodle I did during high school on graph paper when I was bored, the second was full fledged colored pencil portrait. I had completely forgotten about my old work until I saw the news about this challenge and it flashed back to me. I almost freaked out when I couldn't find it in my gallery but then I realized it was kept in scraps (for a good reason!) haha
I had two VERY different views of how this movie would look. I could definitely see this as a very grungy, B-Horror type of movie. It would be very dark and serious and almost push the limits of what is appropriate. The second way that I saw this movie was as a horror comedy type movie. When I started making this poster, I really did not have an idea of how I wanted it to turn out between the two. When I finished, it did seem more along the horror-comedy style. The poster also seemed to read as a Tim Burton style as well. It seems a little off-the wall. I picture "The Ringmaster" as a cross between several of Burton's movies and other horror-comedies. There is definitely not A LOT to this poster, but I had fun making it. I may turn this into a series poster. I have an idea for a second, and I will try to get it finished, too!
Thought I'd try my hand at the Lightning returns contest since I've always liked designing outfits. .__. I was inspired by 17th century European menswear/clothing worn by cavaliers. The colors are I chose are ones that you might find while wandering a rose garden at midnight~
