Designing an alternative movie poster of the main character “Mulan" from the Walt Disney Pictures live-action adaptation of the animated film of the same name. The young hero is played by Liu Yifei. I wanted to create a minimal dramatic illustration that would capture the steely eye commitment of the young Mulan.
Used two vector digital programs, the first Adobe Fresco and finished the illustration in Adobe Illustrator. I used a limited color palette of three colors plus black along with a minimal high contrast design to create a dramatic image
The use of negative space, along with the illusion of dramatic lighting conveyed the power and drama that is central to the movie’s success. I am happy with this simple but stimulating poster.
