Once Upon A Time Poster: Finish

Here's the finished poster for OUAT Season 1. It was done with Prisma color pencils, oil paint, and acrylic paint on Strathmore bristol board. The final painting is 17 x 22.

Some of you may wonder... I realize that the show never uses stars to depict magic, but I wanted to include a graphic image to move the viewer around the poster and help to balance the larger shapes. Also, Henry's book isn't magical (at least in the way that I have it depicted here)… but it was the book that seemed to wake Henry up to the reality of Storybooke, which then led him to find Emma, which led to the undoing of Regina's curse in Season 1. I decided to use my creative license to enhance it's helpful properties. 

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did creating it.

Once Upon a Time Poster: 3

I've started adding color and I'm really happy with the progress. There's also been some nice attention on Twitter and Facebook… always exciting. 

Here's where I am so far. Someone mentioned it looks like Season 1 - which is exactly what it is. Starting to ponder what a Season 2 poster would look like… hmmm :) Any suggestions?

Fortunately/unfortunately… I have a "real" job now. A children's book which I'm really excited about and pays me money… but it takes away from time on this project. Keep watching for progress… and hopefully the finish soon.
