Frank Castle is, THE TERMINATOR

This was my idea from day one when the first theme was announced. Don't know why, just pictured the cover of the original movie but with one of my favorite comic characters of all time.
Frank Castle. Which, in my opinion has yet to see an honest adaptation to the big screen.
One day... Hopefully we will get to see it... (Fingers crossed)

"Calling Dick Tracy, Calling Dick Tracy"

I've always been a fan of Dick Tracy. As a kid I used to always watch the old cartoons when I went over to my Grandparents house. Naturally I love the Warren Beatty movie too. Visually it's stunning and for the time it was pretty impressive. Is Dick Tracy a true definition of a "pulp character"? Maybe, maybe not. Either way I wanted to do something different from what I normally do. I first traditionally sketched, then inked Tracy. Then I hand painted with yellow and black watercolor paints before I scanned it and digitally touched it up. Finally putting it against a background to make it pop.

A Shadow in Little China

My idea for this theme was a kind of sequel to Big Trouble in Little China, but with The Shadow, obviously.  The design of this poster was inspired by a poster for my favorite movie ever, Blade Runner (although Big Trouble comes in at a very close second), which just happens to be another 80's movie.
