In order to experiment with poster ideas, I used Jannath’s artistic talents to replicate the work we researched together concerning illustrate film poster. Above is an early draft Jannath put together using a still from our film.
Above and to the left are examples of illustrated film posters from the Star Wars series. These have remained some of the finest and most famous examples of this technique of construction. The painted faces create an appealing look that Jannath and I wanted to replicate. In the video below, you can see the process I undertook in PhotoShop in order to enhance the image and match it to the style of Screen Three.
Despite the success of the image above, Jannath wanted something more detailed and so she independently pursued a painting that would be used for the poster piece. This technique of creating images is far better than the pencil drawing since it offers a much nicer, authentic look.
I made a number of alternations on PhotoShop to the high quality image I captured with my Canon 600D camera. Examples of these stage can be seen above such as adding darkness to areas of the photo, and adding text to create the poster. Our final piece can be seen below.
