The second artwork I did it. This is the main artwork. I wanted to have it feel like the poster belonged in the grand old oak dining room of the film, to convey the atmosphere of The Lambrick Foundation’s dinner party which these unfortunate guest are invited to attend. The colour pallet was created to reflect this classic tone, This ‘classical’ tone is then further drawn out in the title and the frame design.
As there are quite a few guests at the dinner it was felt best to just focus on the main ones in a simple portrait format without over complicating the visual, so I came up with the idea of having Jeffery Combs literally looming over Brittany, merging out of the darkness with his hands on her shoulders. Brittany sitting tense streaming mascara tears, gripping an ice pick and fork tensely. All conveying the terror and suspense. I then was able to play about with the frame design to place the sub characters with the electric torture devices strapped to there heads and knocking them back from the main focal point.
