Redoing movie posters in my style.
Custom one-sheet film poster for Steven Spielberg's classic suspense JAWS.
This one uses bits and pieces from all over the place. The surface is one photograph heavily manipulated to erase people from it, the boat is a promo shot from the film (with brand new reflection), the clouds are a separate photo, the shark is a still shot, the light is a heavily blurred "underwater" blue with light streaks and finally the gritty texture over top of it to complete the "dirty" look of mine. The JAWS logo is taken from a .eps file and given a gradient texture with shadow.
I was originally gonna go for the normal blue tint for the film, but this happened on accident and I loved it. Something different for such a classic film.
This was done for fun and as a test of my skills. It'll be put up on my website in hopes of enticing people in the poster design community to contact me.
UPDATE: Tweaked two small things and added a dingy behind the boat. I completely forgot about it!
UPDATE PART 2: I've recently put together a 30 minute video breakdown on the creation of the poster if you'd like to check it out over at YouTube [link]
