This was my first poster that I tried to create. I wanted to work with more models, who were people of color. And I loved Jamie Chung from ‘Suckerpunch’ and ‘Once Upon A Time’. She is awesome and I just adore her work. I honestly like this piece, although it was a challenge to get the lighting and her placement in this piece just right in photoshop.
So I’m starting to do ‘character/celebrity’ posters, mostly because I’m thinking about releasing them as wallpapers and maybe selling them as prints on etsy. I wanted to start off simple. I also want to work more with models who are people of color and this is my first real effort. I also don’t like abstract backgrounds, I like to use real places as background. I found this photo of Zendaya and the bold lime color of the dress and the blue lighting highlights in her hair caught my attention. The dress honestly inspired the whole piece, and I’m very happy at how well it came out.
