"Spy Sappin' My Great Work"
Obviously, this poster design is based on Leonardo Da Vinci's magnum opus, (or "great work"), The Mona Lisa.
It's the third piece in my "Thinking Outside the Orange Box" series.
I'm becoming very familiar with Photoshop now. While I'm still new at it, I'm starting to get used to all the tools. I used a lot more for this project than I did with anything else I've made so far.
I probably spent over 15 hours on this piece. I didn't keep track of the time getting screenshots of the spy, or when I was editing the original Mona Lisa out of the background (and trying to make the empty space look at least something like the original work - it's already impossible to improve upon Da Vinci, you know...)
The mask was a lot of fun to make, It's always interesting to think what else a spy could disguise himself as. I added the cigarette, because the spy is never without his smokes.
The idea for this piece is what got me started on this entire series. I wanted to be sure to spend enough time on it to make it one of my best pieces yet. Also, since it was my original idea, I didn't want it to suck - lol. Like I said, I'm not great with Photoshop yet...
This is probably the last poster I'll make for a while, so tell me what you think!
