I have decided that I would do covers for each of the films with black backgrounds, try to stick to a colour theme and make the illustrations on the covers as realistic as possible without being very detailed. Just as I have done the Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill illustrations. I am wanting the covers to illustrate an iconic scene in that film, I am not going to include the name on the cover as I think that the people who will be buying this boxset will know which film is which from seeing the iconic moments from the films. Although I may include a small name on the spine, so that when they are in the boxset they can be pulled out with ease.
Also for each of the covers I have decided to do a questionnaire to find out which is the most iconic scene for fans of Tarantino films. This is so that I could tell which of the scenes I should use on the cover. The people who fill out the questionnaire will need to have a good knowledge and understanding of the film, so that they can help decide which iconic scene to use on the front cover. After doing this I started to illustrate the scenes that were chosen for the covers. Trying to stick to a limited colour palette and a similar style throughout.
From Dusk Till Dawn. (the first film)
When doing the feet for Death Proof I decided to use a natural skin tone pallete for the feet, so that they look more real, as the previous colours I used didn't look great. They looked unreal and very garish. Although after illustrating them using more skin tone colours, they looked too far from the other illustrations colour and style-wise. Therefore I decided to put a mask over the top with a 50% opacity of the original skin tone colours. This makes the colour changes less harsh and makes them fit in so much more.
The other covers that were previously done before Christmas and re starting this brief were; Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill Volume One and Kill Bill Volume Two.
Kill Bill Volume One.
From this I will get all of the options printed so that I can put them in sets together, and see which on looks best. I will start to think about the inside of the DVD cases and how they will look, but also the discs themselves. After doing this I need to think about the measurements of the boxset and the DVD cases so that when they are finally printed it will all work together. I will also be making a poster to go inside the boxset of all of the posters, either individually or all together. This will be a limited edition boxset therefore I need it to be special.
