This alternative movie poster is an homage to the trippy fantasy/sci-fi drama ‘The Fountain‘ by Darren Arronofsky. The main image is an illustration of Hugh Jackman‘s character in the final stage of the movie, moving through space towards an area known as Xebulba by the Mayans, encased in a biosphere. The orb is reminiscent of an atom, flying through the microcosmos, as a sort of metaphor for the Victorian idea of conception, as he flies into the dying cluster of stars and Nebulae in order to bring his wife back to life.
Some progress shots on the paintings for some movie posters for the movies Elizabeth and Elizabeth: The Golden Age. Trying to start incorporating some underpainting in the final images, as shown in the un-rendered crown in the first and the red dress in the Golden Age. Also unsure about the background in the golden one. Might change it to a darker greyish color.
This alternative movie poster is an homage to the scifi masterpiece ‘Sunshine‘ by Danny Boyle. The main image is an interpretation of the golden sun suit from the movie as an iconographic image akin to a heiroglyphic image of the Egyptian sun god Ra. This portrayal is metaphor for the reigniting of the sun by the main character, giving life by powering the sun.
We all hope to find ourselves, but not in a literal sense. This alternative movie poster is an homage to the Duncan Jones directed dark drama Moon. To document the fall into madness portrayed by the amazing Sam Rockwell, the image portrays the astronaut falling from the image of the crescent moon, as a fall from grace.
