Somehow, I totally missed the "Struzan Style" in the title- but, well... it's sort of similar.

Man, Drew Struzan's not even intimidating. Not at all. :p

I was trying to go for the typically "chaotic" (if that's the right word) movie poster style, with the big Indy portrait, surounded by the smaller elements. Not really pleased with the border, I was hoping for something more Renaissance-style, but this was as close as I could find. *shrug*
