I thought I'd make this one as if "Serenity" was an old 30's western, along the lines of Tom Mix and Buck Jones.

The colors are beautiful I just wish there was some tiny reference to Serenity, space, the Alliance, something. Very good work.

That does kinda look like a Tom Mix hat. I'd love to see it in black, though

Tiger, are you creating all the art for these things from scratch, or are you editing existing old movie posters? Can you share some info on your process for inquiring minds? This looks awesome. :)

In answer to ironcladotter:

I can't draw. I wish I could but I can't, so all the images used to make my retro posters started as screen caps from the series or were created from scratch digitally using a method similar to what you used to make your flyers (starting with a screencap, and 'drawing' over it using Illustrator or Photoshop).

The design for the first retro poster is 'original', but I got ideas from several old movie posters that had the style I wanted. I created everything from scatch except the character sketches, which I borrowed from another browncoat's blue sun item and modified heavily.

The second poster's design is copied from an original Casablanca poster, but every element was created from scratch . I did A LOT of screen cap modification on that one.

The third one is a completely different animal - half of it is literally unchanged from a 30's cowboy movie poster, and half of it is original. Strangely enough, it was also the hardest one to complete. Getting rid of the parts you don't want, adding the parts you do want, and making them all look they belong together is MUCH harder than it seems at first... as I realized about 3am this morning.

I primarily use Photoshop, but Illustrator plays a part most of the time, and I even use Flash occasionally.

Thanks for all the compliments too.

That's cool. It would make a great full size poster. Keep up the good work..

Shiny! This is so great. Nostalgic and gritty.

Great! I think this one is as good as the first one. It looks so authentic.

You say you did this in photoshop? It looks like Nathan posed while you painted! Great job. Yet another Firefly/Serenity wallpaper for me!

Retro Poster II alt. version
Somebody asked for a version of the retro poster II that was more suitable for "advertising" the movie - less busy, more emphasis on the release date. So, here it is...

Retro "Serenity" Movie Poster
I thought it would be fun to make a "Serenity" movie poster in the old 50's style. The character images are edited from an original work posted here by TheDuke333 http://www.fireflyfans.net/bluesun.aspx?bid=1320 , but the rest is mine.
