SuperGirl Movie Poster

Mock Supergirl movie poster
20"x30", acrylic and prismacolour on illustration board.
I'm happy with how it turned out, like the look and feel of it plus the turnaround time (about 4 working days). The original and prints are available if anyone is interested. Think I've got some Fett goodness coming up next... stay tuned.

Supergirl Movie Poster Work In Progress

Super Girl Movie Poster Work in Progress
I started working on this piece earlier in the week (mock movie poster) in an ongoing process of updating my illustration portfolio and locking in some new working methods. It's on a grey gessoed 20"x30" board. It took about a day and half to draw it in twice (first initial drawing then a second darer refining pass). I followed it up with laying in the darkest darks and textures with black acrylic and the lightest lights with white acrylic. The next stage is laying in the transparent colours with acrylic over the next couple of days.
I'm happy with the design all how all the elements are playing off each other... so far so good.
On an unrelated note I am doing more group and private art classes. If you are in the Kitchener/Waterloo/Woolwich area and have kids or are interested in beefing up on some art techniques feel free to get in touch with me.

Pixar Jam

Sorry for the lack  of posts lately, it's been hectic around here with post holiday wrap up, family and commercial work. Here is the latest piece off the easel. It's a Pixar character jam done in a similar vein and technique as Drew Struzan's work (Indiana Jones posters). Trying some new techniques for commercial work, would love to hear some thoughts. The original (18.5"x22", acrylic and prismacolour on illo. board) is available as well as prints.
