The song “Justice For One”
from the movie “Savage Streets” got me started making an 80s exploitation flick inspired movie poster.
After searching some adequate stockphotos I started to combine them to build an ass kickin’ street gang killer babe.
To get a constant look I used some adjustment layers to correct the colors.
Next step is to make this female John Rambo wannabe look more like a painting.
After playing around with a lot of adjustment layers and a lot of overpainting
I finally found the color mood for the whole poster.
I moved on and added a city background, highlights and some details like tattoos, gun smoke…
A great (fake) movie poster is nothing without typography. So I chose the title “Streets Of Fear” and gave it a kind of an 80s font and style.
I put some credits, a poster frame and some noise on it and it was done. Now, I’m writing the screenplay and waiting for someone to direct it. ;)
