A cover illustration for The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas.
I just got several amazing books on watercolour and got this desperate urge to paint. So, I took a break from school projects tonight and decided to sit down and paint for a bit. I kept reading about watercolour painters using lots of glazes to develop their colours so I thought I’d try it out. Although I like the way it looks, I got a bit impatient by the end and just started applying straight colour like I usually do. I probably should have used a warm blue for the shadows instead of prussian blue which got the colours a bit muddy. Forgive the wrinkling of the paper, it was just done in my sketchbook.
Here’s the final poster design for the Rocky Horror Show. This was a fun school project, as we were given the choice of what performance to promote in a poster. I went with what I knew: Rocky Horror. I tried to give the poster a different feel to the Rocky Horror posters that I’m used to, a bit more of an updated look and feel for today’s audience.
