ZOMBIE CAGE FIGHTER: THE MOVIE!
Recently got commissioned by UFC Fighter extraordinaire Nathan "Rock" Quarry to spice up his already existing ZOMBIE CAGE FIGHTER brand with a couple of designs. This is the first of those. After kicking around a few ideas, we decided to go with an old horror movie poster type design complete with the fighter hero, the beautiful woman and the monstrous menace. I had a lot of fun illustrating the figures and playing around with the halftones and weathering effects on this one -- scuffing up the image and giving it some torn, ragged borders and such (to try and reduce the "big ol' rectangle" feel as much as possible).
Anyway, the design was premiered at the San Diego Comic Con this past weekend, along with a second, simpler design, which I'll post here soon.
