Alice In WOnderland
The Alice in Wonderland poster was an assignment done for Illustration from Imagination on Paintable to showcase the steps of a standard project. The challenge was for me to create my version of Alice in Wonderland in a movie poster format. They wanted to see my creative approach to the subject. What was challenging for the project was how they structured each step. I had to do a certain number of examples with each step so I could expand my creativity.
I began the project by creating 6 different sketches based on Alice in Wonderland. The sketch and shape language are what I focused on. It turned out that the 6th idea was my favorite. I wanted the idea of Alice to have a bit of spunk and attitude instead of the generic good girl vibe that we were all used to. I continued on with practicing different lighting scenarios. I ended up choosing the middle one since I wanted to give Alice more of an ominous feeling and draw the viewer into the scene. I then created several color palettes. The second palette was more reminiscent of the triadic color scheme; I wanted Alice to have a harmonious color palette that showcased a lot of color but had some familiar colors that viewers were used to seeing Alice in.
By combining the different choices, I ended with a rendered Alice in Wonderland Poster. They now showcase my piece in their movie poster examples for potential students!
