Work in progress: “Coming Soon” movie poster for Hearts of Dust. Background is pretty set; credit block is mostly laid out but the content will be changed for the final poster; blending and effects on text will change. It’s too modern and “shiny” right now. Themes to convey in the poster are the time period (Civil War), death, loss, heartache. Photoshop, Illustrator, my own original photo. Texture overlay to look like a damaged photo over old paper. Title font is Perpetua Titling; font for credit block is “Steeltongs.”

Work in progress: digital manipulation based on my own original photo. Photoshop, Painter, Illustrator. Hand-illustrated to add missing parts of photo. Dodging, burning, color and texture overlay. Original to Stage 3. I will probably back off the contrast on the hair so that the texture is recovered.
