#1 – “Im king of the world” – Titanic
I felt that after a few drafts, I should really put the context of the movie in the design. So firstly, I featured a skull which representing death and as we know that there were not many people survive after the titanic sank.
The crown is to represent that he is a king and also a guy who seek for freedom as he was left in the deserted island after his boat malfunction. He was the only one left after the disaster. Due to the limited of supplies, he eventually died in the island. I was actually quite happy with my final design for the quote ‘I’m king of the world” from Titanic.
#2 – “I have nipples, Greg, could you milk me?” – Meet The Parents (2000)
This is one of my favourite outcome that I did. I decided to do it like a comic style which I got my reference from “Butcher Billy” that I research on. I decided to go for the comic style because the quote has a little sense of humour and also being sarcastic.
The action, the body and the facial expression with a cigar on given an impression that he’s a grumpy old man which the movie in the quote is all about. I painted the body textures to give a little more comic kind of look which the original photo doesn’t have it. The settings of the movie is in the dining hall so I designed the set with a wooden table with lamp and the milk in the foreground.
The window is at the background to represent that you’re in a house. I doesn’t want to put so much elements at the back which I wanted to keep things as clean and simple as possible.
#3 – “May The Force Be With You” – Star Wars (1977)
This is one of the quote that I did quite many drafts on it and I decided to stick with the artist reference “Noma Bar”. I wanted to try using the negative and positive space and I want to keep the design as simple as possible to understand the quote well. This design featured 2 friends, suits also representing they are presentable and there’s negotiate and conversation in between. Both are shaking their hands which representing “Good luck”. It is also the meaning of the quote.
In the middle, there are 2 guys who are fighting against each others. As in the movie “Star wars episode III”, Anakin Skywalker betrayed his master Obi wan and became Darth Vader at the end. So sometimes you may be best friends or brothers but when things happened, either one side or both sides will get hurt which the blood in the design represent.
#4 Roads? Where we’re going , we don’t need roads. – Back to Future – (1985)
When I first look at the quote, I decided to do something that is not related to the road. It can be either on sea, at the sky or even space. I felt that after created a few drafts, the subject in the space looks more eye pleasing to me.
I added the spiral effects and by overlaying it which gives like a milky way effects in space. The car is also the main object which relates to the movie.
Reflection / After Presentation
Overall, it was a good experience playing with photoshop using different kind of techniques like examples the threshold, half tone and posterize.
After I presented my 4 designs and hearing the feedbacks, I realised that a few of my designs can be improve and the meaning of the quotes can be further much more elaborate. I will try to improve on my next project! Totally looking forward to our final project “Ego”.
