Drawing up some rough ideas.
Look up for reference online and come up with the Superpowers figure from 1984, the cover design for New Frontier #6 created by Darwyn Cooke and an Alex Ross’ s Green Lantern painting.
Do photo-shot to create the perfect fist, the angle, and the lighting effects for the ring.
Digital sketch combining the previous fist photos and some cosmic imagery from NASA’s website.
PENCILS & VECTORS
Printing, scanning and drawing into Illustrator and mapped out all the elements in vector while experimenting with every gradient in there.
Blending a couple of photographic overlays with the vectors.
Got some nice images of folded linen and satin which worked perfect for getting those wrinkles.
Adding the green light energy, a few background elements and some selective shading. And finally, added the final content from the Green Lantern oath as well as the 2011 logo.
THE COMPLETE WORK
This great Green Lantern Poster was designed by James White. To read his detail work go here.
GREEN LANTERN now open in GSC and TGV and other cinemas nationwide.
In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan. Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax…he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.
