Marvel Studios' Phase-Two Title Cards: Doctor Strange
For this title card, I gave it a medieval sorcery-style treatment, which I think fits the universe of the titular character perfectly; hence, the Blackletter-typed font, with stony texture, adorned with crack brushes all over the letters, and a blueish glowing outline around it, which emphasizes the magical element of the character. The font used for this title card is Gaelic.
Marvel Studios' Phase-Two Title Cards: Black Panther
The element that I try to emphasize on this title card is the tribal element that surrounds the universe of the character, and thus I chose to use such a unique font, rather than the commonly used Serif font type. To add to that element, I also applied brushes all over the text that visualize the tribal complexion I intended for the title card. The font used for this title card is Metrolox.
Marvel Studios' Phase-Two Title Cards: Runaways
Basically, the title card for this one is pretty much the same title card that is used by the original comic book series; only with different elements, such as the blocked 3D style, and a darker color tone. For that, I think the resulting title card looks pretty damn generic, and it is now the title card I least like, among the others. The font used for this title card is Sthalbetontröger Outline.
Marvel Studios' Phase-Two Title Cards: Namor
Well, what other style can possibly fit a movie like Namor? Of course, the blocked Serif font type that sheds such a majestic vibe, and also feels dark, both at the same time. And so, I put up such a simple concept, and color the text with grayish blue color, that I think shows the sea element, which should be a prominent element for the character, and the surrounding universe. The font used for this title card is Space and Astronomy, which characters "O" and "R" strongly resemble Trajan Pro's and/or Roman SD's; the two fonts that may be the closest fonts to the real one used in the title card of Thor. (That is not intentional, though.)
Marvel Studios' Phase-Two Title Cards: Heroes for Hire
Now, the last one is also my unexpected favorite title card, of all. Yes, there's nothing so special with the concept of the title card itself, but I really like how the blocked 3D text turns out to look that smooth and fairly "clean". Plus, the arrangement also works very well, in my opinion. The font used for this title card is Wall Street.
Dredd (2012): Minimalist-Styled Poster
I've actually been longing to create a minimalist poster, after my last John Carter one (check it out here), and so I tried to create another one. What I thought would suit such style most is Pete Travis' upcoming reboot movie, Dredd, which I also highly anticipate, and so I decided to make it. The concept is, well, obviously simple - with bullet holes on a wall, seemingly creating a pattern similar to Dredd's visor, and blood splatters around it that serve as the border of the "visor", resembling the design of the character's helmet. And then, there's the tagline, "Judgment is Coming," above it (I deliberately made it quite obscure on the background), and the title, which I gave a different treatment that surprisingly works pretty well. Although in my opinion it looks pretty nice overall, the only aspect that I dislike from the poster is how the edges of the visor-like pattern still looks too smooth, and are lacking of any textured depth to make it believable enough for a hole that is created on a wall.
The Dark Knight (2008): Heath Ledger's The Joker Marker Art
I've been a sucker for marker art lately, and while doing a series of marker art I'm planning to feature in my upcoming Justice League Fan Fic at school, a friend of mine noticed my work, and was immediately impressed by it. So, she requested me to make one with Heath Ledger's the Joker from The Dark Knight. And, well...that's it! It's done in approx. 5-10 minutes, and with no reference image used, causing the resemblance to be a bit off. (I'm not good in accuracy, anyway.) But, overall, I'm very satisfied with it - yes, I do notice how the left eye is smaller than the right one, though. As the title suggests, I only used a black marker in making the art, with the help of Adobe Photoshop CS5 in clearing the background after scanning the image.
The Dark Knight Rises (2012): Anne Hathaway's Selina Kyle Marker Art
Again, I've been a sucker for marker art lately, and while doing the above Joker marker art at school, which was requested by a friend of mine, another friend asked me to do one with Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle. Well, I'm not good in drawing women, but...challenge accepted! Once back at home, I also decided to give the art some color, and I think the result is pretty satisfying. Reference image was used only for the face (which ends up still not resembling Anne Hathaway), and also the details of the suit, while the pose - although very well might be similar to any other Catwoman pose - and the idea for the image as a whole come from my own mind. I only used a black marker for the raw image, while the coloring was done using Adobe Photoshop CS5. (I've ever attempted doing colors with the application, and this is the first ever to fairly succeed, so that's mostly why I'm satisfied with it.)
Daredevil Reboot (TBA): Fan-Made Test Poster
The planned Daredevil reboot has been one of my favorite subjects to be used in my frequent attempts in making a fan poster lately, and it's proven itself to be a tough subject, as those many attempts have all failed. (That, though, is also due to my lack of skills, and the planned movie's lack of available properties to be used for a poster.) But then, a few days ago, I finally managed to clear up those obstacles, and came up with the above poster, which style is semi-minimalistic. And for that, I kind of hate it - I personally think that a fan-made poster for an upcoming/imaginary movie should show the creator's interpretation of the movie itself, thus a minimalist style won't work well in my opinion; for an example, the above poster is heavy on silhouettes, and it doesn't show anything of my own visual ideas for the movie. (Although I've spent quite a time in making the manipulated image of the Daredevil used in that poster - the basis image is Spider-Man from a set photo of The Amazing Spider-Man - but, I ended up covering it in a silhouette.) Well, at least I've featured one big element in the poster that I really want to see in the reboot, which is the color yellow...and, that can both refer to the yellow costume the titular hero used in his first appearance, and the Daredevil: Yellow storyline, which is one of my favorite Daredevil stories of all - both elements which I think should make a heavy presence in the reboot. And then, you have the title, alongside the tagline, as well as the word Daredevil in the title spelled with Braille alphabets; the latter two I think perfectly emphasize the dimension of the hero as a blind character, which is the most prominent and unique element of the hero, in my opinion.
