Alfred Hitchcock prints

1 A2 to go up in my degree show, and some A3 ones to go on sale in a limited run. Printed on lovely 310gsm etching paper. After much stress, things are finally starting to turnaround and look like they’re on the right track. I do hope I haven’t jinxed it now.
Our university’s Degree Show begins on the 26th June - more details soon, but I do urge anyone in the Norwich area to come along - some really talented people showing off their hardwork. It’s going to be grand.

Pretty much final?

Certainly hope so, I want to get them printed tomorrow.

University project - posters/book covers about Film Directors.

Akira Kurosawa, Alfred Hitchcock and the Coen Brothers.

Using elements from their films to create their portraits.

I don’t often say this about my work, but I’m quite happy how these have turned out. I could constantly tweak little bits endlessly, but for now I think I should stop fiddling… unless anyone points out any glaring things which don’t work!

Changed the back cover of the Hitchcock one, it now features the Bates Motel as opposed to the plughole, which gave the cover a weird perspective change, and didn’t really look like a plughole.

Any and all feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

WIP of my Alfred Hitchcock Poster thing.
Sorry if people are getting sick of looking at this now.
It’s getting to the tiny detail tweaking stage, as I want to send this to print at some point very soon hopefully. I’ve edited some of the faces, and recoloured bits, looking mostly at the lifeboat area, as that was bothering me.

Can I ask for everyone’s advice? Are there any details at all which bother you? Doesn’t matter how nitpicky it is, not matter how small the detail - it’s going to be a fairly big print, so if it looks dodgy small, it’ll look horrendous big. If you wouldn’t mind taking a quick look, I’d very much appreciate it - I’ve been staring at it way too long, so can’t really see a lot of the little bits that are wrong. Fresh outlooks would be fantastic.

Thanks! :)

This will still hopefully be applied as a book cover later, but I’m still playing with type at the moment.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - Photoshop.
Final one in the set.
Turns out I can be quite productive on a rainy day. Wasn’t sure on this one, though - Think I like it better without the outline of Indy (so it’s just the landscape) but then it wouldn’t really fit in with the other 3. Mind you, I guess you could argue this film didn’t really fit in with the other 3, as it was a bit rubbish. Ouch.Anywho, any feedback would be lovely :)

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - Photoshop
3rd of 4, couldn’t decide what scene to choose for this one, guess the chase scene stuck in my head the most.

Rain + dad using the TV to watch golf + Matt being bored = this, and 3 others.
Just playing around :)

Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark - PhotoshopIt rained a lot yesterday, which meant I couldn’t really go anywhere, so I decided to have a play around with my Graphics Tablet and try some things out in Photoshop. Wanted to try giving digital images the effect of screen printing, as I really like how they come out, but I don’t have any things at my parents house which I can try printing with, so thought I’d muck around digitally for a bit.
Here’s the product of my boredom - not sure why I chose Indiana Jones, maybe because it was Mr Ford’s birthday the other day and I’d just seen the trailer for Cowboys and Aliens. Ford on the brain?It’s just a rough idea :) Probably a lot of flaws, I’m not very good with Photoshop.
