Puppy Pan Flutist
Sketch on left, finished character composition on right. Created in Illustrator.
Resident Evil Retribution Fan Poster
Vector silhouette created in Illustrator, background and text created in Photoshop.
Poster began with a few initial sketches. Because it was being created as a gift, I immediately tossed out
the middle sketch. I found the penguins on either end to have more appeal in silhouette form.
With two penguins in different styles mocked-up in Illustrator, I decided to throw away the first penguin.
I found the second penguin's personality and subtle heart-shape more inviting than the first penguin's slightly ornery look.
Once I had the penguin selected, all that was left was the background and a few small tweaks. Final print size of 24x36in.
