:bulletred::bulletred: PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NOT FANART. NOT. FANART. This is an OFFICIAL promo poster created for the movie :) :bulletred::bulletred:


This is why things were so crazy leading up to Christmas :D (Big Grin) I was working for 20th Century Fox on this OFFICIAL poster for the upcoming Deadpool movie. It was just released this week!

Colours provided by the awesome BLOND --> :iconblondthecolorist:

You'll recognize this (the scene behind the concept) from the first official trailer that was released. After pitching various concepts to Fox, they asked me if I could create this one :) (Smile) It hit the domestic and international film markets on January 27th, 2016.

My patrons over on Patreon got to see the process from start to finish, and how I put this all together in the end (the original black and white art is actually 3 pieces). If you would like to support my work, please check me out at www.patreon.com/mechart -- patrons get behind the scenes looks at new projects and the processes behind my work.

I can only imagine how excited you got after being asked to make official artwork for Marvel. Or have you been asked before, and now you're used to it?

When I got the gig after pitching, I screamed. It startled a family member who was home at the time :D This was done directly for Fox, though I have worked for Marvel on comics before (as an inker). I've been working professionally for about 12 years, varying between mainstream and indie (wherever the work is), but I don't think its something I can get used to. That's the thing about freelancing, you never know what will or won't happen, where you'll end up, what you might get to do, etc.

Thankies :heart:

THAT WOULD BE AWESOME TO SEE. I don't know if it was, but I got reports of it being spotted in a couple places in the US and overseas, and they used it in their social media marketing too. And Reynolds has the full size poster in his collection. I WILL have it as a smaller print when I'm at CE though!
