"Monster are the patron saints of imperfection"
Guillermo Del Toro
A poster design celebrating the work of Mexican filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro, best known for his Oscar-winning films Pan's Labyrinth (El Labertino del Fauno) and The Shape of Water.
This was a piece I originally uploaded back in 2012 and while I've always been generally happy with the layout, I have grown increasingly unhappy with my technique at the time, so I decided to take another shot at it.
I was originally intending to just re-colour the original line art, but upon closer inspection it became obvious that the sketch needed some refining (and four of the portraits needed re-drawing altogether). It's still not perfect, I had to cut my losses in a few areas because my elderly computer was screaming at me to stop toward the end, but it still looks a helluva lot better than it did before.
