Concept / pre-visualization: "she-outsider" idea

My idea is to use another point of view to look at the B-Movie topic.
I think b-movie term, includes a wide range of movie genres and not
only sci-fi or horror ones.
Maybe, one of these genres could be the sexy-comedy, very popular in Italy
in '70-'80 decades. The Italian sexy comedies are simple but quite funny movies
with comedians and sexy women acting using a script full of misunderstandings
and ambiguous situations.
A typical topic of this genre is the betrayal, usually presenting middle-age and quite ugly
men trying to court young women. Often, the leading characters are teachers and students in
a high-school scenery, or sodliers and sexy nurses, but this may vary. These movies have amazing poster art, made by great Italian illustrators such as Renato Casaro, Enzo Sciotti and Sandro Simeoni.
I strongly suggest to check out their works:




I think these posters are really amazing, representing the actors and their funny faces in a great way. I would like to do something similar, focusing my illustration
on an imaginary Italian sexy-comedy called "La fuoriclasse" ("she-outsider"), featuring a young woman who's not only a great soccer player, but even a very beautiful girl. For this reason, every men (ugly and quite stupid) in the movie will try to make her fall in love with them, from her coach to the president of the football team.
(well...I know...the screenplay is not so original...)

Hey Marco! you are starting a bit late but moving quite fast!
I think that here in spain we had also movies with similar topics in those years, hehe, sexy women and stupid funny stuations... you have also very good references with those posters... it's looking good! (and sexy)

Looking lovely, Marco! always nice to see new work of yours! My only crit would be that the lower right ball and the man on the ground below it have the exact same expression and you could vary those more... unless the ball is intended to be him. (In which case, why does the ball have a moustache and he doesn't?) Anyhow, good luck with it!

Hi friends! Thanks for your encouraging words!

Fernando: Great to know that not just Italians have these movies! I'll search for spanish poster references too. Thanks a lot!

Michael: Thanks for your crit: you're absolutely right; I'm trying to change all the faces right now.

Soon updates!

Work In Progress: she-outsider adding details

starting to add details to the heads.
  02 February 2010
The faces are looking good! Now that you've moved her right leg, it's on a tangent with the top of the left man's head. Also: a bigger logo! In a lot of the examples in your link, the logo takes up the entire width of the poster. So consider super-sizing it!
Good luck!
