I decided I wanted to do some nice movie posters for my dad for Christmas this year, so I’ll be posting my progress on them in the next few days. Here are some initial sketches for the Raiders of the Lost Ark poster I’m doing. I decided a single iconic image would be good, so I chose Indy readying himself to grab the idol from the opening scene. CLASSIC!
These images represent my initial pencil sketch and then the first and second rounds of inking with a brush-tipped pen. Now I’ll take these into Illustrator and clean them up and decide the final style I’d like to go with for the poster. I’m thinking something vintage 1930s to fit the era the film takes place in. Stay tuned!
