The First time I do an extremly contrasted light scene...
The Illustration by hand and Digital Color, fifty fifty, you know.


Nice movie poster! When is it coming out in cinemas? ;)

Like the minimal colors, simplistic design, and almost gives this medieval comic book cover vibe to it. Also, it's the freaking HOST! The peoples' buggy eyes bother me, but that's not a problem.

THE COLORS!!!!!!!!!

I love those colors (L)

juan-arg responds:

Warm and cold contrast. Thanks for the comment!


this rocks. I love that movie, and I like that this has kind of a different vibe. I'm not really into the frame but like... whatever. the rest is cool. ha

That different vibe is the great vision of the director, Bong Joon-ho, he's great!

Quite interesting

You made good use of the heavy-inked deep shadows, and your control of them was pretty darn good. I also liked the overall effect of your underlighting, but there were a few points where I thought the execution was a bit spotty (eg. the folds of the center character's clothing). But overall you did a pretty splendid job of creating a picture from 4 tones. If this was your first attempt at extreme contrast lighting, then I'd say you should definitely practice some more. With a little refinement, I think you have the talent to master the technique.

juan-arg responds:

It is the first time I use an extreme contrast and I had some problems (especially with clothes) but I think to be the first time this quite well.
Thanks for your observation.
