Cartoon College Poster
I did this poster for the Cartoon College movie in my typical "sketchbook" style. It was fun, but got a little nervewracking making sure there was space for everything and hoping I wouldn't muss it up too much. I did a little bit of clean up in photoshop: getting rid of a couple of smudges, cleaning up and resizing the lettering, and adjusting the colors a tiny bit.
(a crappy photo of) The original. Drawn with a black brush pen, red and blue ball-point pens, and yellow watercolor.
There is a version that has the book elements erased, like the fold in the middle and the pages and cover around the edges. Check that one out here.
Here are a couple preliminary sketches.
Sorry to anyone's face I totally wrecked. Since I drew all those people without any penciling or planning ahead of time my official stance is that none of them are actual people, but rather "inspired by images from the movie."
Unless I totally nailed a likeness. Then that was an intentional portrait.
