After working on the Marvis and the Dragon poster for the past three days this where I am at on the poster. Coloring the dragon was completely new to me. I tried to keep it “realistic” as possible while also putting my spin on it. The second hardest part was rendering the clouds in Adobe Illustrator. It would have been easy to do in Photoshop, but since I’ve used Illustrator in the other poster I didn’t want to change. Plus I wanted to be a little creative with how far I can go in Illustrator. The clouds were created using numerous effects like: the Scribble effect, Gaussian Blur, and Feathering.

Marvis is very unique to the story of Xavian. Originally he was suppose to be just a memory to Xavian. But I decided to create an entire based off my real life brother. I look up to my big brother and decided to insert him into my story. Compared to the Xavian/Phoenix poster, Marvis and the Dragon have a completely different theme and vibe than Xavian has. From looking at Marvis’s pose he appears more calm, composed, and ready to take on any opponent. The colors are cooler, hint the blues, and greys throughout the piece. If you follow my YouTube channel you can watch the 3 day process from start to finish.
