Here is the distressed / aged version of the poster art I posted yesterday. This is for a film that was shot i New York. It's called "Do No Harm", obviously, and their crowdfunding link is posted below so please chip in and help independent filmmakers! Drawn with brush and ink (Raphael 8408, #3 and Speedball Super Black Ink). Thanks for looking!
I love imagery like this, lovely sense of another era you’ve captured here and I love the drama too.
Made me laugh! Thank you!
your drawings always put a smile on my face
Hey, I don't know why I hadn't replied to this much earlier. Thanks!
That worn paper effect!!!
Thanks, man. I probably overdo it a bit. It's so much fun! I appreciate the faves.
Is it hard to create? I mean... CONVINCINGLY?
Well, yes and no (terrible answer, I know). There can be a lot of additional little tweaks and tricks but the basic idea is very simple: STEP 01: find a piece of paper that is beat up, folded, yellowed, dog-eared, ripped (or whatever you like) and scan it in (or find an old paper texture someone else has scanned and will allow you to use), STEP 02: Put it in Photoshop in a layer above your art and set the aged paper layer to "Multiply". BOOM! Suddenly your art is on aged, distressed paper. Like I say, lots of fine adjustments can be done after that but this is the basic technique. IHTH.
I'm gonna have to copy and paste what you said...then take months getting the process right.
It's really pretty simple once you start doing it. There are a lot of high res., free distressed paper textures available on line, too, so you don't even need to scan your own. It's fun looking for old paper at garage sales. etc., though.
Nice, Huw! In support of independent filmmakers I'll be purchasing a DVD copy of "Instruments of Evil" today and when it arrives I'll in the mail I'll start making bootleg copies of it to sell at a discount price.
Just FYI, I've got everything defaced, packaged, and addressed, and I even through in a few little "extras" (trust me: DON'T get too excited), now I just have to get to te post office. Tomorrow, I hope. Then let the piracy begin!
this is so classic
I love the vintage pulp look. The tone is perfect.
Thanks! It seems I spend half my time making beat up things look better and the other half making perfectly good things look beat up! Go figure.
blue ribbon-ish. just fantastic
