(Art) Fic movie posters

29th March 2010 (18:54)
Tags: , ,

I've been playing around in Photoshop designing movie posters for my fic... I've done about half a dozen of them, concentrating on the earlier ones. Let me know what you think! Would they tempt you to read the fic (if you hadn't already)? Do you think they give the right idea about what each one is about? :-)

Warning: one of the posters is not safe for work, if your workplace is on the prudish side. Post is image-heavy, obviously enough...



Hiywan's Story


Intrusion


Netherlands to Nepal


That Kiss


That Other Kiss


For A Few Kisses More


I've already posted this once before, but I've redone it in the same size as the others:

We Just Declared War


A Storm Coming In

I don't know...I've been wanting posters of my own, yet when I look at these, I'm intrigued but unsure that they'd draw me in.

The one for "Netherlands to Nepal" looks genuinely Brobdignagian, in an unusual sense--Swift notes that Gulliver is utterly unaroused by Brobdignagian women despite occasionally riding in their cleavage, because their tiny imperfections loom so large. Did you size up a smaller pic of Dawn/Michelle? It looks...fuzzy.

'Netherlands to Nepal' isn't necessarily meant to be arousing, you know. It's crack!fic. ;-) (Though there's no reaon it shouldn't be, for anyone who finds it so.)

The photo of Michelle is actually smaller here than in the original, but I don't think it was a very high quality image to start with - probably a scan. I needed one of her with bare shoulders, after all. ;-) If I were doing this commercially, obviously I'd be buying hi-res publicity images...

I know it's crackfic. I was making a comment on what looked like it might be an interesting stylistic choice. *chuckle* Though as it happens, I know there are a lot of macrophiles out there who would definitely be interested.

I did have another idea for a poster for that fic, but photoshopping it would have been more of a challenge, and it would have been a lot, lot ruder. :-)

Oh, really? Please explain. *amused*

I giggled at the 'Kiss' posters.

And I'd say that that one post is not safe for any workplace in the US. We're kinda prudish on the whole, you know. ;)

:-) I had fun doing those. Originally I was just going to show the tequila bottle, but the addition of the bra was an inspired afterthought.

They're only boobies! (Assuming you're talking about the same one I am).

Also, I challenge your assertion. If your place of work happens to be a strip club or porn studio, that post would be considered pretty tame. ;-)

omg i have boobies!

Surprisingly, I've been getting a lot of use out of this icon...

They're only boobies!

And pubic hair...

Besides, this is the country that needed a national group therapy session after seeing Janet Jackson's nipple during the Superbowl halftime show.

Have you met my hand? TALK TO IT!!!

"Hello, Gabs's hand. You appear to covering one of her boobies, if her icon is anything to go by. How's that working out for you?"

And I'd say that that one post is not safe for any workplace in the US.

Nor any workplace in the UK that gives a damn about its Sex Discrimination Act liability.

I like them. Especially the "Intrusion" one, and... especially especially the Netherlands to Nepal one, which I would love to see filmed. They can do wonders with CGI these days :-)

Thanks! Although it's odd, because 'Intrusion' is actually my least favourite of these. It looked better when it was still in my head, as it were.

Netherlands to Nepal one, which I would love to see filmed.

Mm-hmm. :-)

I'd like to do a poster for 'And All My Secrets Laid Bare' too, but I've no clue where I'd find a photograph of a half-woman, half snake goddess wrapped around Alyson Hannigan... ;-)

I love the Intrusion one - looks like it might be a 90s William Gibson paperback. And the Kiss ones are inspired (I'm guessing that's Willow's bra, for some reason.)

Tara's would be bigger and Buffy's would be black instead of a pastel shade.

'Intrusion' was a rip-off of homage to William Gibson anyway, so the style seemed appropriate.

Thanks!

Ha, the Kiss ones are hilarious. The Netherlands to Nepal one actually shocked me, honestly, heh. But the others actually do make me interested to read the ones I haven't read, so I'd say job well done.

Shocked? You?! Now I'm shocked (and boggled) at the idea that you'd be shocked by that image. Bet you're glad I didn't post my original idea. ;-)

Lol, I don't mean shocked like 'omg boobs are gross'! More like I just wasn't at all expecting it. Never fear, I'm still a perv. :)


(But now you've got me all curious about your original idea! Tell meee!)

It was... an photomanip of a scene from the second half of the fic. There wouldn't just be boobs visible. It would be highly unsafe for work.
