[1 of 3 line colouring commissions]
It was a bit tough, but I sorta pulled off the pointilist effect I remember seeing from those old dirty grindhouse movie posters. And I threw a little CYMK-ish colour theme in the background for the win.
I ended up just yanking out one of my Cowboy Bebop artbooks just to see how Kawamoto did his illustrations.
Doing pointilism effects as it turns out is way easier with brushed/painted work as opposed to cellshaded stuff.
I gotta try that on my other stuff someday.
And of course, the original image wasn't tilted like that until later, I thought it worked out for the overall composition and movie poster "graphic appeal".
