Witchblade standee and poster:
Standing about 6 feet tall, this life-size standee was produced to help pre-sell international distribution rights and drum up buzz for a potential Witchblade movie. The campaign was successful – rights were secured and buzz was generated – although the movie never got made. Such is Hollywood sometimes.
Since this is pre-production art, I had to composite a stock photo (the head and torso), CGI (legs and feet, rendered out of Poser), and pure Photoshop illustration (for the Witchblade forearm itself).
Below: Examples of sketches received from art directors, and the resulting Photoshop renderings. Usually these arrive with simple instructions as to what materials they'd like them to look like, and an instruction like, "Make it look spectacular." Which is my favorite brief.
