Wronged Man

Another color rough for the Wrong Man DVD cover I worked on. Again, this was one of the first times I tried to use Photoshop to "paint" with. Prior to this, I only used PS to color in a comic book style. But for this illustration, I needed to mimic a painterly style that mirrored the movie poster styles from that early Hitchcock era.

What I really (still) like about this piece is that the overall design and typography compliment each other well and fit the movie poster look for that time period nicely. I was also happy with the realistic painting. I had never applied a technique like that to my line drawings and I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome.

Thanks for taking a look. And, no, this one wasn't chosen either...! The one that was chosen was my least favorite. Oh well. I was still honored to work on a project like this.

Ah, well that's always the way, isn't it?
I work in the printing business and 9 out of 10 they take the things I'm least proud of.

Anyway, this is really cool! Fits perfectly to the movie.

Stay away from the pipe! Egaazzztttt!!! Thanks Steve! I like the composition on this one with the type more than the drawing itself. It was just a cover mock up that obviously was never taken to the next step.

Looks amazing! This is just a rough? Great likeness... and the color choices are sweet! I can't believe they didn't go for this one... the composition just nails the time period.

Years of painful exercises similar to the ones shown in the first Bloodsport movie. LOTS of splits!
