I am taking a Corel Painter 12 course right now. This is our second to last assignment. I have always used traditional media, but can not image doing a 22″ x 40″ poster in pastel. I think I will start doing my Children’s book illustrations in Painter from now on.
Everything was drawn by hand in Painter except the large headline which was created using my pencil drawing as a template in Adobe Illustrator. The Weird Uncle Logo is a font called Waltogram which was a serendipitous find.
The assignment was to do a vintage B-Movie poster. I wanted to do something very non-Disney and non-cute with Pinocchio. I have always thought Pinocchio was a little evil and dangerous anyway, so decided to do a take on King Kong. Let me know what you think. A larger version is on my blog.
