I’ve been really enjoying creating alternative movie posters for the likes of Kong: Skull Island and Baby Driver. They’ve been so well received by both the studios, directors and fans, it’s hard to believe!
This one is less of an alternative movie poster and more of a piece of fan art. I also enjoyed playing around with creating a very basic clip of the different images I used to create it. I decided that as I wanted to explore the image and characters fully I’d fully illustrate both and make their main facial features align. This way I could use both separately or together. It seemed like the best way to represent them as two leaders who are both mirroring each other as leaders and visionaries for their respective groups. Saying that Woody Harrelson does a great depiction of the Colonel with a certain madness in his eyes!
It was challenging to get Caesar and Woody Harrelson to look right and correlate, but I think that the effect is worth it. It was also interesting working in such a dark colour way.
Here are a few shots…
