In this lesson, Mark shows another method for bringing a movie poster composition to a photographic level. He prints out one of the comps on vellum paper and renders it using odorless turpenoid, cotton swabs, a black pencil, and an eraser. He also shows you examples of using this technique.
In this lesson, you will learn how to plan and set up a photoshoot of your body doubles. Mark does 3 photographs for 3 different compositions and shows how to size them to 6’x9’ standard format, using a photocopier. Then he sizes actors’ heads the same way and attaches them to body double photos. Now he is ready to start drawing the comp. He takes you through this whole process so you could repeat it yourself and use body doubles in creating your poster.
In this lesson, Mark demonstrates how to attach designed heads to figures, using a photocopier, scissors, and tape. Then he puts heads and figures under the tracing paper and draws the composition. You will learn how to make characters look natural.
In this lesson, you will practice developing concepts for movie posters. Mark will talk about borrowing ideas from old masters and developing your own style. You will also see an example of including a designed head in a thumbnail sketch.
