This alternative movie poster is a lighthearted approach for the campy 2006 movie about the life of Marie Antoinette, the eponymous French queen from Sofia Copolla. The image is a stylized portrait of Marie Antoinette with a French style coiffure topped with flowers, pomegranates, birds, and macaroons. The cascading tendrils of hair frame her neck, which is slashed with red, symbolic of her notorious death. Her face is done up like a china doll.
This poster is an homage to the fantastic dystopian film ‘Children of Men’ from Alfonso Cuaron, based off of the novel by PD James. The main image is of a pregnant woman, with the golden child, the first pregnancy in many years, illuminated and outlined with a dotted line.
Many thanks to Heyoscarwilde for showing this gallery of my posters!
In creating these, I really just wanted to focus on the token ETs from the series, and in a minimal manner while retaining my painterly style. The images were to rely on the contrast between the negative and positive space to create the main, simple shape of the aliens and their terrifying teeth.
Some progress shots on the paintings for some movie posters for the movies Elizabeth and Elizabeth: The Golden Age. Trying to start incorporating some underpainting in the final images, as shown in the un-rendered crown in the first and the red dress in the Golden Age. Also unsure about the background in the golden one. Might change it to a darker greyish color.
Based of the marvelous sci-fi treat Rise of the Planet of the Apes, this alternative movie poster’s imagery plays off one of the main themes of the movie. The image is an interpretation of “The Creation of Man” by Michaelangelo, using Ceaser, the film’s main ape protagonist reaching towards the gloved hand of a scientist to ignite the spark of sentience.
