This is seriously happening! My current fan project is a Dragon Age 2 movie poster-esque image because I want to do a lovely fan art to farewell that DA2 era for myself and welcome the new game, coming out in November. Then Bioware launches this Dragon Age Inquisitions poster contest a couple days ago, and I am so on it. So I will be deriving the DA2 image of further updates for the week while I work like mad around comics and my job to get a dang good poster idea finished in time for November third (the contest deadline).
I've dug up my favorite movie covers and posters, asked friends for theirs, and researched online for the "best" movie posters. Given that images for DAI won't be nearly as plentiful as those for DA2, I am foreseeing a bit of a snag. A lot of images reside in video teasers and trailers, and without actual internet (phone data is low) I'm afraid I won't have good references for a few days. In the meantime, I'll simply lay out color schemes, shapes, and composition. The rest will be filled in later.
Because it is a contest, I will not be posting my ideations, top picks, and lineworks until the deadline has passed.
