Now I know what you're thinking, "jeeze Dylan, isn't it kinda crass to plaster your company name and logo all over that poster?" Well it would be, but those are just watermarks and I assure you they were not included in the version I handed over to them.
I was given pretty clear instructions for the first poster. Caillin really knew what he wanted, right down to the basic composition. For this new one though I was given pretty much free reign to come up with something. Kim gave me a run down of things she'd like to try and convey with the poster...I took that and we decided to keep with the same theme as the first poster so the two of them could work as companion pieces. I came up with this, somewhat based on the poster from the original Conan The Barbarian poster. I googled that though and it turned out I really wasn't remembering that poster correctly at all, so this may or may not look much at all like Conan, save for the raised arm.
Here're the stages of the drawing. I draw it out in blue so once I ink it I can scan it without picking up my construction lines. I used to have to erase all that stuff when I was done drawing...it burns the hell out of your arm and covers the desk and floor with eraser turds and who wants that, right? It was another fun gig. I'd like to do more of this kinda stuff.
