This was one of my first commissions and does feel a bit rough now. I was still developing and learning the ropes trying to recreate that classic B movie film poster montage style at a time when hardly anyone was doing it and the trend was for super minimal artwork.
They wanted a classic illustration style, something ‘Colourful’ and ‘bright’, so I went with a yellow hue for the colour palette which allowed me to give the illustration that punch vibrancy, yet still having that classic 70’s/80’s poster vibe. As its a cheesy martial arts action extravaganza. I just saw everything coming out of a BIG explosion, helicopters, jeeps, bikes… sexy bikini clad lady.
Complete with the shiny chrome/gold title to round it off.
