Aqua Man (watercolour, digital) illustrated poster submitted for a DC film poster competition.
The portrait of Aqua Man depicts a hero made of the ocean. The lighthouse shows us his past, whilst the trident forms the ocean king's crown- a symbol of his destiny.
Sansa's transition at the close of Season 4 is symbolised by her piercing, confrontational glare and ghostly face, drained of colour and warmth. The dark tones in the styling of her make-up highlight the gothic, sinister Sansa we are forced to accept. Her face is depicted in watercolour which shows softness, however the remains of her innocence are overshadowed by the feathers which are sharp like blades.
Daisy (watercolour, pencil, digital)
The golden painterly tones Daisy Buchanan's hair and the ornate jewellery are a picture of affluence. I chose a realistic style to produce a meticulous portrait of a lady doused in riches. The upward look of awe at the embodiment of the american dream shows her vanity towards materialism. This transparency is signified by her colourless, hollow face.
Laura (pencil, digital)
The portrait portrays Marling metaphorically dancing with the devil. She is immersed, overwhelmed, burdened under its weight, and in doing so has become 'The Beast'. The depiction of the beast is influenced by Native American headdress along with the unforgiving, visceral beasts of nature which have now become her crown.
India (pencil, digital)
The film poster focuses on Mia Wasikowska's central character India. The clues around the illustration build a sinister and unnerving mood around her, whilst the stiletto reveals the disturbing influence of her uncle Charlie; two thirds of a dark family love triangle also involving India's mother- Nicole Kidman's Evelyn Stoker.
