Art Auction Poster
Here's what I hope will be the final version of the art auction poster (or at least something close to it). Typically, whenever write a post about the final version of a project it turns out not to be the final at all. There are small or sometimes large revisions to be made after I've proclaimed the project to be complete. I'm not a superstitious man, but maybe my usage of the word "final" or any synonym thereof is a jinx.
At any rate, here it is. I drew inspiration from any number of sources including Jon Foster (general inspiration), Al Dorne (the hands in particular), and Frank Frazetta (lighting and figure). I'm really satisfied with the way the illustration turned out. I also paid particular attention to the composition and the way the viewer's eye might be lead around the poster. I'm not exactly sure how to measure my success in this endeavor, though.
