I believe this piece took 4 days. The final res was 300 dpi at about 14" tall, but the client had me use a new pose and repaint the piece anyway. My latest image is the one the studio likes, it will print 36" tall. Just waiting now to see if it becomes the movie poster or not. I'll post the completed poster if it does.

Its great work, but i'm curious...what movie poster could it be for? Obviously not for "Superbad" since that's long past. The illustration from an artistic standpoint is perfect, but he looks too young for me? It looks like you were using a photo ref of him at 13 or something? Anyway, thanks for sharing, I think he's a hilarious actor, and your process pics were great too.

Thanks. Actually it's for an upcoming picture called "Youth in Revolt." Although the studio really liked the art, it seems like they might be going the photographic route now. This has happened to me on five films now and, well what can I say? It seems like the golden age of illustrated movie posters is a thing of the past. It's a shame since some of my best movie experiences and part of the reason I decided to be an artist were the posters I saw as a kid. Starwars, Indiana Jones, Blade Runner... Could you imagine if they just decided to take a snapshot of the actors and use that??? But that's just me, I'm bitter. hah.

As for him looking like a kid, that's the direction I was given. They wanted him to look young and nerdy. I have a feeling Michael Cera will be playing a kind into his 30's.

Anyway, thanks for the feedback.

Mike, i understand your pov. Soon they'll take the actors photos and apply a quick "illustrate" filter or something... part of the studio's plan to 'eliminate costs in this bad economy'. It is sad, i'm a fan of the classic posters as well, they always seem bigger than life.


"Youth in Revolt" huh, i guess that would lend itself towards a younger looking picture. Yeah he seems to be cementing his type-casted character as we speak. Although, it is strange that they would go with a photo of him, considering most of his movies are more artsy and culture related.

Anyway, its cool that you are invovled with these movies, your art is very professional and full of life. Looking foward to more.

Very realistic! I could never manage to use Painter to make so clean and detailed work!
I prefer a bit more painterly looking backgrounds though. But appart from my taste the picture seriously rocks!!
