My movie poster. Critique needed

Well, this is for a school project. It's a take off of the "Grizzly Park movie posters. Not as good of course

I'M iffy on it. I made a few mistakes.

Don't like the font. I'll probably change that.

Any opinions/recommendations would be totaly awesome

I like the concept. The title doesn't read too well and I question its placement over the people. The light seems directional, then it doesn't. It's going one way then all sort of diffuses out like it doesn't have direction.

Yeah. I didn't like the title either. Espeacially over the people. And good eye on the lighting. I'm going to re-do this.

Many thanks man.

Re: My movie poster. Critique needed

The concept works, as stated. A couple of things comes to mind (imagewise, not conceptually)

- The light areas seem to be built too much with large soft brushes.
- Too much transparency showing in the construction of the image.
- The "family" is walking in daylight, and it doesn't blend well with the overall mood of the image (even if the tone is humorous). You could paint a more dramatic lighting for them.

Good luck with the remake!

Yeah. This is a challenge for me. Preciate your critique

My redo. Still not complete. Nor satisfied

This is going to sound silly, but the big image of the bear..... looks more like a wolf than a bear to me. It could just be me, but maybe you can make it look more bear-like.

It could just be that I'm weird.

Well, not much I can really do about that. That's the bear image I worked with. Although I could change the title to Wolf Park lol.

Updated version.

I darked the people to blend into the surroundings. As well as the title.

just a thought, might look better with a bit of blood dripping off teeth onto the font below, then pooling and dripping off font.

oh, found this too for getting a better font: www.high-logic.com/fontcreator.html
