Grimm’s tale made into movie poster

I have created this poster using Adobe Photoshop. I wanted something quite grim as I have learned some new tricks in Adobe Photoshop and wanted to test them. I have created a horror movie, drama and thriller, but not fairy tale and the Grimm’s works seemed perfect.

The Twin Brothers is a German fairy tale collected by the Brothers Grimm, tale number 60. It is Arne-Thompson type 567A, the magic bird heart, and type 303, the blood brothers.

After creating this grim poster I suddenly interested if the word grim is some how related to the Grimm Brothers. Here is what I have found.

Two famous uses of the adjective grim are the Grim Reaper and Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Mr. Reaper shows up in movies and books wearing a long, hooded black cape and carrying a scythe, or long-handled blade used, in less grim circumstances, for mowing grass and reaping grain: he represents death. The real-life German brothers wrote some bone-chilling tales under their own name, Grimm, meaning “cruel, fierce,” which is related to the English word grim. Modern grim things include crime-drama images of dead bodies and characters in horror movies.

New Movie poster

I am posting this new movie poster. Well the theme is dramatic again and this time London is featuring in it. Experience told me I am not genius and I still need to learn a lot so this poster as the previous one was created with help of a tutorial. It is not an exact copy, but result is very similar the original I was learning from.

With this information revealed I can’t take all the credits for it’s creation.

Thriller Poster

Hello everyone or whoever is visiting my site right now. I have now realised I have got a taste for creating posters now. I don’t mean anything happy or family thing, but some darker stories.

Since following couple of tutorial now it seems much easier than was my initial thought. This last creation is something between a horror story or thriller.

The images used are actually mine they have been taken at The Barbican. It is one of the corridors there I don’t thing I would be able to find my way back there, but at have the photos. Everything used is included within Adobe Photoshop so you all can have a go and do it too.

My next attempt will be even better as there is definitely space for improvement.
