Daily Deviation

Given 2010-09-12
The Crimson Cloak by ~vanishing446 is a striking movie poster for a fictional movie. The layout is balanced and appealing and incorporates the elements of the storyline effectively. ( Featured by Lilyas )

I like it. I wish I could find anything a real crimson these days. People think that crimson=scarlet=dark red. Psh, as if. Now that cloak is real crimson alright.

Congrats on the DD, :) It's your composition that's so striking. Forget about everyone's taste! They all have one... The Velvet-like feel of the background (Backdrop) Makes me feel like she's unavailing the Cloak even though it's dawned! Great Subtext of Foreshadow! I know you didn't see it like this when you did it, but it works! The Black border actually works fine and the Text (White) ... is sleek and sexy...

My only Constructive Critique would be to place the 1st line of the text as... (Wolfe better Run) 2nd... ("Wolfe and his gang killed Red's Brother" in one line...) 3rd (wolfe better run...) 4th (Wolfe and his gang killed Red's grandmother) 5th (Wolfe better Run) and 6th (Wolfe and his gang... Well, Wolfe Should've Ran!) Or whatever you like for the 6th! It's just the fact that things feel better with the trinity of threes and if you know anything about movies... Motifs are all important... as this story already has a structure of three. Red. Wolfe. Grandmother.

Just Saying... Awesome Job for not caring too much about the piece!

TTYL!

The concept it's ok but I don't think you did this as well, I didn't like the application of it, elements, background, typography, you know, you didn't make it good, too simple, smudge or I don't know in the background, clipping mask, maybe you need to put it more realist scene, well. My opinion, don't worry about this, you don' need to agree with me or something.

The sad part is that they will never made a movie cool enough to be worthy of this poster.

If this is a fictional movie poster, where's the rest of the information? No writers, no producers, no actors? The only thing that tells me it's even a movie is the "FILM BY" part at the top. And the date, is it in the summer, spring, winter, or fall? I like the simplicity of it with the flowing tones of red in the background, but the actual robe appears more like a floating cutout due to the darken edge at the top of the hood. As a suggestion, the figure could just bleed off the edge at the bottom. I like where the concept is going, but it's just not quite there yet for me. I would like to see your take on an update if you do one.

The rules of the contest did not specify the need for a cast listing or specific date. I do appreciate the comment however I just made this for a contest, which is now over, and using a photoshop trial download to make it.

I like the concept and I would see the movie, but as another comment already stated, it's just way too simplistic an image for my taste, like something just cut and pasted together. I think it's the background that does that, really takes away from the foreboding and dramatic image of the cloaked figure.

Exactly! I think there would be a massive improvement if you altered the background, even if just to make it a plain black one with the figure slowly forming in the center by blending the edges of it into the background. Anyway, just a tip. The figure looks fantastic!

Interesting concept, but so damn simplistic.. the background I think would be better if there were more detail, instead of just looking like splotches of color gone over with the smudge tool in only one direction. Not the best typographical choice either.

No problem.
I do like this one quite a bit more, but it's still got the same problem of the background and the character not seeming to 'match up,' if you know what I mean. The background is smooth, while the foreground is more grainy, makes it look like they were pasted together. In both cases I think it'd be a big improvement if the entire thing had the same sort of rough grainy texture.

I used his stock :iconmjranum-stock: of Irina as well and was browsing through all the comments and links that artists such as yourself have posted with their works using this tremendous photo. Might I just say that I am impressed with what you have done. It is so entertaining to see how other artists have utilized this piece of stock. I painted it along with three other of his characters if you are interested in taking a look. And yes, this is a PAINTING and not a photographic manipulation. Just extra FYI...lol. The video of the painting is below also...
