I have posted this on the Ween site and Facebook, but thought why not post it one more time here. Just in case you didn't see it. Might be of interest to some...
I am a huge Ween fan and always like to incorporate imagery from their songs into the posters I do for them. Fist thing I do is listen to the songs and go through their lyrics to find ideas and images that I think would be fun and make a good poster.
I take all the ideas and make sketches until I am happy with the layout of the poster.
Next I draw a more detailed sketch, scan it and tweak it a bit on the computer, and print it out much bigger. I take a 19x24 inch sheet of white bristol board, put the sketch underneath it and bring it to my light table. From there I start inking my drawing tracing my sketch through the board.
At first I just do a rough drawing of the entire poster. I will be going back into it to add details.
Here are a few more photos as the poster starts to appear...
Have you ever seen a man with 8 fingers on his hand?
Getting a bit of help.
Starting to come together a bit. Again just drawing the full image first and then will go back and add thicker line work, details and more.
Once I have the full image drawn in, I got back and start inking the details.
Adding thickness and making this poster come alive.
