Work in progress

I wasn't going to post this until it was a finished piece, but it's been an interesting 'project'. A long time ago, back when I was still learing the basics of Illustrator and experimenting with shape and such, I decided to produce a poster for a 'Zombina and the Skeletones' headed club night called 'Cowboy Vs Ninja' in Liverpool.

It was terrible!!! and for the life of me I can't find it (if I do I'll post it.. I'm not proud!). Anyhoo.. I decided to revisit the idea as an exercise, just to see if I'd improved any over time. Above are the sketchbook page, the photoshop composite page and the work in progress Illustrator file. I think it's almost there, but I ust want to play about with it for a little longer.

Thanks for joining me on the adventure!

Cool concepualization Shane! I just love the fluidity and simplicity of the lines (the legs/bowed and all of the two)!
You do these iconic characters proud!

Hi Shane, I remember the older pic you're referring to and I'll see if I've got it on my old Mac from the website stuff. I'm liking this pic very much, love the ninja's pose. Colours are ace too.
