Lovely work, I like the intensity, the staging and the graphics.

Roberto - thanks mate

Your light sources are always really believable and I'm really liking the print on her dress. I think it's your details that make your already successful drawings even better.

Love the lobby card look!

Vivian Leigh 'model' for this?

Dominic Bugatto said...

alex - thanks man ,the print was from a William Morris textile

Noel - yes my astute friend , Vivian Leigh was def the inspiration for the 'Witch'.

Drazen said...

Looks reeeeeel nice!
at least I guessed a british actress:-)

Dominic Bugatto said...

Draz- thanks man

Marcelo Baez said...

Great design! That's a winner! Nice touch with the RKO logo too...

Dominic Bugatto said...

Marcelo - thanks for stopping by , it def needed the RKO logo ;-)

R.Dress said...

Awesome, leave it be.

Nate Simpson said...

This thing is so nice. One of these days, I hope you post a "how I do this" piece on your blog. Are these completely digital, or are you starting out in analog media? It's just such a credible evocation of a different time period, plus it's a gorgeously composed illustration. And the fonts are awesome, too!

Dominic Bugatto said...

R.Dress - I did , honest ;-)

Nate - thanks for the kind words, as with most of my work it's a hybrid of traditional & digital.
Drawings inked with brush & Pen on Strathmore , scanned and colored in Photoshop & occasionally Painter.
Assorted scans of textures & papers to make it less 'digital/clean' .
Fonts are always a challenge , so many great ones to choose from.

Great job of making it look both modern and retro pulp. Photography blog is pretty cool, too.

Dominic Bugatto said...

Frank - thanks for swinging by , always a pleasure

pete ryan said...

This is a total winner

benton jew said...

Love it! Like the retro color scheme.

Makes me wonder what a noir Rapunzel movie would be like. It would be fun to see more in this "movie".
Pernaps noir Rapunzel lobby cards that kind of cover other beats of the story.!

lotusgreen said...

too cool

talk about a looming bad hair day!

Dominic Bugatto said...

Thanks everyone.

Benton - if only I had the time ;-)

Oscar Grillo said...

I'd love to see this movie. Music by Miklos Rozsa surely!

Dominic Bugatto said...

Oscar - thanks , and Miklos Rozsa sounds perfect !

Jeff Durham said...

Thanks for commenting on my blog, Dominic. A week or two ago, I spent a little time looking back over your work here, back to the beginning of 2006-- we both started about the same time and yours was one of the first blogs I latched onto. It's been a real pleasure to watch you work and to watch your work improve so much; you were really good then and you're blazing now. You're an absolutely solid artist! I always find inspiration here. Almost goes without saying, this one is terrific fun.

Dominic Bugatto said...

Jeff - thank for the generous comments , they mean a lot coming from another pro such as yourself.

Cheers, Dom
