Wronged Man by urban-barbarian Wronged Man by urban-barbarian
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.

Dan, this looks great! Love the design. Keep up the painterly style. Seems like a natural for you. Your inks are often painterly anyways.

Thanks Bill! I did this about 3 years ago. But it taught me to think outside the box a bit more with the computer. Then, of course, there's guys on DA and the Blog-o-sphere that really use PS and Painter to the fullest degree. Makes me wonder why I try!

Pure class, man.
Good to see a resurrection of the old-school movie poster style. ...From back when they were considered works of art.
Nowadays it's just 'Star Photo + Star Photo + Title = Modern Movie Poster', thrown together during a lunch-break by any clown with a copy of Photoshop.

Once again; praise.

I couldn't agree more. It shouldn't surprise you then to hear that when I design a new release movie poster I bring close 50 original concepts to the table. Inevitably, the design that is ALWAYS chosen is simply a head shot or several heads together. Zero storytelling. Then the movie stars have their agents fight for positioning. Who gets on the right side, left side, top and bottom is all negotiated for... All sorts of weird compromises are made and the result is exactly what you mentioned in your comment.

Sad, huh?

I blame art directors giving in to corporate non-artistic minded suits...

Amen to that.
Curse The Suits. ( Hmmm, good name for a band... )

I reckon amazing artists like Drew Struzan must walk past new movie posters in cinemas these days and just shudder.
I know I do...

Movie posters used to be a canvas.
Now they're basically a MySpace pic.
