EMP 2012: Darkwater Poster by heatona EMP 2012: Darkwater Poster by heatona
Here is my submission to the EMP 2012 contest. I was lucky enough to get 5th last year so heres hoping for a good chance this year.

Treatment for this film can be found here: [link]

I had trouble with this one because I intended to make it a banner and a panoramic shot of Darkwater.
My biggest challenge was finding stock with decent 1870 costumes.
I looked into films set in 1870 to get an idea and noticed True Grit and got a flash of inspiration from a friend of mines drawing he did for a poster on True Grit. It had the cast images with a sort of fractured look to it. Like the image was breaking apart. Anyway that was the inspiration.

Splatters are my own. Basic Brushes used.
