Thanks for coming back for Phase 2 of our newest project. As we told you yesterday with Phase 1, this time out we are tackling Universal Pictures supernatural thriller, “47 Ronin.” Today you will get a look at the remaining art and I can assure you, it was worth the wait!
The movie is directed by Carl Rinsch and stars Keanu Reeves, STILL my latest crush – Rinko Kikuchi, as well as Hiroyuki Sanada, Ko Shibasaki and Tadanobu Asano.
Ben Whitesell – “I have been experimenting with what I like to call the “IMAX Cinematic” style which is designing around a 12″ x 36″ format. Basically, crazy wide. You’ll notice my Gravity print is in this same format. The only downside is that it makes posting online kind of weird because it reproduces so small, but as an actual print they are amazing.”
“I have been working on more hand-drawn techniques and you will see some of that in this piece. I drew all the vines with a wacom tablet by hand. My upcoming Jaws piece for Hero Complex Gallery takes it a step further, I actually used my pencil drawn sketches in the final piece. That should be coming out soon with their show in about 2 weeks.”
