This is a damned nice tribute to Struzan. Not only do you have is colored pencil technique and warm/cool color palette down, but you have an extremely nice composition as well. It is beautiful the way you've placed the central characters back to back, and even seemingly joined them together. Even their expressions and intensity match beautifully. I love the way you've established vertical dominance with the young man in the picture. It anchors the design eloquently.

One more thing... you at least are giving Struzan credit for the style you've chosen. So many others that copy his style (and many quite poorly) pretend that they created the style, and that it has nothing to do with Drew's. Utter bullshit!

Keep doing what you are doing because it is awesome.

This is great. I love Drew Struzan :D

Please...can you tell what technic did you use here?? How exactly did you get this "Drew Struzan" effect??

Really nice work on the tachymeters & the 86! Wonder if S. Shigeno could draw it this way if it wasn't for manga strips

i love this! well..i love jay chou in general, lol. but i do agree, his upper lip seems a bit exaggerated. But i love the effect of the picture overall! ...and i thought it was traditional media at first, too! xD oh, and the entire bottom half with the car is absolutely amazing!! x3

Funny that you referred to Drew, cuz that's who I was gonna say your work remined me of.

Good job.

I love Struzan style, I love the look of the poster, well done... though the arms fading into each other looks a bit off.

I particularly like the glowing dashboard in the sky. Well done!
