Animal Charm: Movie Poster Design (Voting Open)

A contest I entered on The contest was to design the movie poster for the upcoming indie flick "Animal Charm" starring Sadie Frost (Best know for her role as Lucy in Bram Stokers Dracula). Not much was said about the movie to make a poster. But from the visuals shown in the video as well as the stills found online, I noticed that the movie has a lot of bold colors and deep shadows. So I brought those bold colors and shadows into the poster. What stood out to me were Sadie Frosts character which made a cool silhouette and the three women wearing masks. Together they made a interesting composition for a movie poster (in my thoughts). Also I skewed the angle for a more dramatic effect and better use of the poster size. I had fun working with a limited palette. It came out very bold. I hope you like it.

Stan Lee Foundation Superhero Contest

Here is the sketch of the character sketch I sent into the Stan Lee Foundation superhero contest.
I didn't want to post the colored over version just yet, big difference. This is a character redesign of a 3d model I made back when learning 3ds max. Cross your fingers! The grand prize is that you get to go to comic con 2011 in San Diego, meet Stan Lee, get you character made into a sculpture/toy and also meet Todd McFarlane (CREATOR OF SPAWN!) in Arizona at his headquarters. I would die. Wish me luck!

EDIT: The colored final version is on the website, Voting starts February 8th. Tell your friends, spread the news! Vote for me! Here is the link! John Greens Submission for The STAN LEE FOUNDATION SUPERHERO CONTEST!
