We had a meeting about our film show posters this morning and it was drawn to my attention that mine was too flat.

It was suggested that I look at some wood block prints for inspiration not only on the image but on the text. I think this is a really good idea so here are some collated images I think would look good with my design.

Boy try

I think I need to get some real paper and go crazy with some scissors to help with this design.

Mood board

I have decided to make my human characters in flash, using the collage technique I used for some of my monster art. I want the characters all to have very definite shapes, similar to the monks in The Secret of Kells. I feel that by having a fixed shape they will be more defined, and they will be separated from the monster a bit more. Whereas at the moment they look like they are all in the same world I want them to not see the monster at all. By making their design clear and separate I hope to illustrate this better.  
I intend to have different shapes for each individual corresponding to their personalities.
