Ella Enchanted Movie Poster

My first digital art upload!
This was a poster assignment for my Digital Design class. I decided to do a movie poster of one of my favorite books, Ella Enchanted, as if it were a Disney animated movie.

I feel it's still a work-in-progress; there were many things in my original thumbnail that I had trouble brushing up into the final, or lost completely. The idea was to do an illuminated manuscript-style border, but I had a lot of trouble with that. Perhaps another 10 hours of work would improve it, but I doubt I'll be picking it up anytime soon.

Critique welcome :)

Original comps for the poster can be seen here.

 I cannot tell you how much I love this. Disney really should redo Ella as an animation. They screwed up the live action. [ insert long soapbox speach here ]

Hi, thank you! I'd forgotten I'd done this poster, it's been so long! Turns out I've lost the original Photoshop file too, lol. I've been meaning to redo it completely though, with new character designs and everything.
Thanks for your comment! IKR Disney should've done this animated from the beginning!

This is so good! I wish they'd done an animated version. The live-action film...not the best. I think the script could have stayed a lot closer to the novel if they'd gone animated. I would love to see this version come to life!

Looks pretty cool. This is one of my favourite books of all time. Maybe someday there will be a movie-version closer to the tone of the book :3 (The movie was funny in its own way, but...ehh...)

This makes me want to make movie posters for books, too! :la:

This is so amazing and it even has that Disney look to it! I really hope that they come out a movie like this. I love the way that you portrayed the characters, but I think that my favorite part part is your tagline.

Yeah Disney should've made the movie.
