It’s not often I get commissioned to create a more detailed
rendition like this on an Etch A Sketch. This MST3K-themed Etch A Sketch
was created for my roommate to present it at one of the Kickstarter
viewing parties that took place last night. Regretfully I was out of
town and therefore unable to attend, but from what I was told, Joel was
most appreciative of the gifted final art! 🤗 The Etch A Sketch was
custom framed in a beautiful black shadowbox. The original might have
been gifted, but prints are available for purchase on etsy here!
this is the full size original clayboard etching for my Crimson Peak print for Guillermo Del Toro and Legendary Pictures. 18x36″ and easily 250+ hours of work on this alone. beginning to end, my crude sketches in the theater to sending the final separations this poster took me a month, and i couldnt be happier with it. i also couldnt have been more thrilled to work with the director himself on the project and been more thankful to a studio for understanding the best results are going to come from trust between them and us artists.
Got to see sleep no more for the first time last week and when I realized it was ending I decided to follow the tailor for the rest of the time to see how their story played out. They ended up guiding me into the finale and it was really cool.
The entire experience was so cool and intense I felt the need to channel the energy into some artwork
I made a little 3 panel sequel to this… it really only makes sense if you’ve seen it, and plays off of the last line in that sequence. Set hundreds of years later, Legolas finds his father in the same tree he had one hidden in when he was feeling sad.
The first and third panel have a bit of motion in them, and the last picture shows them all in case the gifs don’t load properly. The rules I made for myself were– I had to stick to three panels (or camera angles). I cheated just a liiiiittle bit by decided it was perfectly with in the rules to add some motion. :) I’m practicing storyboarding. I want to get better at it. I hope you guys like it!
