The top 25 movie posters of all time | Posters | Creative Bloq

The top 25 movie posters of all time | Posters | Creative Bloq | POP CULTURE | Scoop.it
We celebrate the most inspiring and memorable movie posters of all time. Is your favourite on the list?
Andrea Rincón's insight:

The article is about a list of the 25 most iconic movie posters of all the time. It also includes the opinion of graphic designers about the posters that made it into the top list.

 

The article starts with an introduction that declares that is not necessary for a movie poster to include a big celebrity or an iconic scene of the movie to be unforgettable, but exactly the opposite.

 

The majority of the posters in the list are from really old movies, they have some beautiful and interesting illustrations, which also have a lot of meaning.

 

Some of the posters selected in the list are from the movies Indiana Jones: Raiders of The Lost Ark, Jurassic Park, Ghost Busters, Pulp Fiction, E.T., Blade Runner, Star Wars, Jaws, Back to the Future, among other classic cult movies.

 

I find this article really entertainment and interesting, because not only showcase the posters, but also talks about the story behind the making of this incredibly art and design pieces, and the meaning that hides the elements that were used for representing the ideas and concepts of the movies.

HOW TO: ILLUSTRATE IN TEN STEPS

HOW TO: ILLUSTRATE IN TEN STEPS | POP CULTURE | Scoop.it
I’ve always been intrigued (and slightly baffled) by the process by which illustrators create their beautiful imagery, so I’m very happy that one of my all time favourite artists Kelly Smith (aka Birdy & Me) has agreed to shed some light on her process – from the first idea all the way...

Luis Arteaga's curator insight, May 25, 2015 10:39 AM

My thoughts about the article

It is important to learn these techniques of sketching if you are interested in arts or graphic design. In this case we see Kelly an illustrator who likes fashion and has been part of many projects that involved important brands, magazines and more.

Her style is amazing, and if we look closer she has their methods to create and she explains in simple steps how to create a character or just to create a masterpiece, like inspirations, references,  sketching,  breaks,  scan, watercolors by hand, re-scan and edit.

I have to mention that is not a conventional method to draw, but is functional, practical and creative.

Most cinephiles and comic book fanatics know Mondo for its illustrated film posters, vinyls and toys. Based in Austin, Texas, the gallery and online store is famous for releasing limited edition
Andrea Rincón's insight:

This article is about an art exposition named "Eyes Without a Face" by the illustrator Jason Edmiston.

 

The exposition is about the eyes of some really iconic characters in the pop culture, including movies, tv series, and comic books.

In the note there is a brief introducction and explanation about the art exposition, and also features an interview with the illustrator.

 

Edmiston says that the inspiration for his project came when he looked up at his eyes in the rear-view mirror of his car. Another curious fact about his illustrations is that all are life size, wich means that there are some huge works like one of King Kong, amd some really tiny like the iconic man of lego.

 

-I think that the artwork of this illustrator is really amazing and fun to watch

How to Quickly and Easily Remove a Background in Photoshop

How to Quickly and Easily Remove a Background in Photoshop | POP CULTURE | Scoop.it

WorksLearn how to quickly erase a Photoshop background using the Background Eraser Tool.


Via María Zambrano

María Zambrano's curator insight, May 25, 2015 10:31 AM

My Opinion about the article:

This tutorial is very useful for all those people that wants to learn a little bit of photoshop, in this tutorial says how to remove a background from a picture using different ways to do it, the most common way to use is use the Background Eraser tool. This tool samples the color at the center of the brush and then deletes pixels of a similar color as you “paint.”

When you select the tool that you want, Bring the pointer near to the edge of the person or object that you want to remove the background from. You will see a circle with small crosshairs in the center

Click and drag to start erasing. There is no problem if you bring the circle over the edges between the background and the object (that’s why it’s so cool) but it’s very important that you don’t drag the cross hairs over the edges.

Once you’ve done the “hard bit” and have erased an area the whole way around the object, then set a very large brush size finish off the rest of the background.

Well, it´s the most easy way to do this kind of stuff in Ps, I think is helpful for beginner people.
