If you are like me and trying to be fit and healthy in this day and age, then you will know that one of the hardest things to do is workout your legs. Every time I do a leg workout I wince at the pain of using the pedals in my car on the drive home from the gym. Suddenly every event that you do for the rest of the day has the loaded question “Do I have to use my legs for this?” Chances are if the answers yes, you won’t be doing that thing in case your legs give way underneath you and you strive for the next three hours to get back up.
This (exaggeration) situation had me thinking the only way to get around the home or office is by doing a zombie shamble ( making moaning noises and saying ‘brains’ only adds to the creativity ). So sitting in my favourite Prof. Charles Xavier chair I looked at all the different types of zombie movie posters that were on the internet and decided to generate one of my own. The zombie silhouettes were created by my own images of various zombie poses. Completed in Photoshop, to the style of George A. Romero and Zack Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead. Enjoy!
Various zombie poses for the silhouettes
This is my second submission of video game posters.
“Long live the great and glorious mother brain!’
I only used tutorials to get the texture for this one which I’m proud of.
the poster is done in the style of a Chinese propaganda poster. The sunburst is certainly eye catching and its simplicity in only using two colours, and black and white. I used Adobe Illustrator to create the black and white mother brain and metroids, also the red sunburst. I placed them all in Adobe Photoshop and applied the textures and filters. The only thing I could criticise is the border chops off the metroids teeth at the bottom, adding a red or white circle to the mother brains eye would tie it in nicely with the metroids white eyes. Feedback welcome. Enjoy!
On Monday ( a few weeks back ), I took the time to travel to Brisbane and see Queen + Adam Lambert Live in Concert, which was epic! This got me listening to their music again and I was reminded how they did a song for the movie Flash Gordon ( which was an epic movie). So, today I made some time to create a flat image poster for the movie.
The body pose is based on He-man ( Stephen Hawking has a better chance at painting the Mona Lisa than I do at drawing a stick figure ) and the type is Futura, which I thought was appropriate seeing as the movie is a bit psuedo-futuristic, dodging lasers, star trek style space ships and a wardrobe that could compete and win against star wars. I place the image on a free poster mock-up through Adobe Creative Cloud, designed by Mike Delsing. Now that I see it, his pants could be a darker shade of blue to stand out from the background and adding ‘saviour of the universe’ at the bottom centre in a script font would give the viewer an answer as to why he’s standing on a strange world wielding a sword in a power pose. Constructive feedback is welcome; I hope you enjoy.
