A movie poster dedicated to the 1996 film version of said Shakespeare title. First, the background in a huge picture of a white concrete wall that was flaking. Next, I use my palm tree brushes to suggest the beach setting of (Fair) ‘Verona Beach’. This layer is given a gradient overlay set to ‘vivid light’ and thin opacity. Next, I use my favorite font(i suppose…) ‘Headline One’ for the title. ‘Romeo + Juliet’ are rasterized and given a grunge treatment with a hi-res brush. Moving on to the skull and pistols. Two huge pictures of Desert Eagle pistols were used. They have a gradient overlay to give them a chrome look, also the exposure has been greatly increased. The grips of each gun was selected using the polygonal laso, then I used a hi-res grunge brush the emulate a pearl grip using a pale teal color. The two emblems are for Montegue and Capulet, found them on Deviant art. They were treated with a bevel and emboss, gradient overlay and reduction in saturation. The pistols also have a teal outer glow and thin stroke to give them a graphic look. The roses are from a picture of some kind of cake decoration I found but I gave them a gradient overlay in red/black and they came out ok. They also feature a teal stroke. The rosary chain was given ‘satin’ and pieced together by cutting and pasting sections of it until it had a flow…The banner is a custom shape, rasterized, then grunged up with a brush. The quote is from the play, and the font is called ‘Be-knighted’. Finally, using a large spray-paint brush, I gave a backdrop to the images….***EDIT*** Ok, I feel like I owe fans of this movie better…and myself. There is a huge emphasis put on the characters pistols and I felt Tybalt’s ‘Long Sword’ pistol with the extended barrel needed to be included. So a quick search for ‘Brass Tubing’ …..and here we have it.Extended gun barrel!
Logo 1) All size counties have the Brazos River watershed in common, therefore, I used it and a UNIFIED overlay of all 6 counties.
Logo 2) The Waco suspension bridge is an icon of the area an its ‘arms’ embrace all of THE HEART OF TEXAS
Logo 3) An alternate take on the bridge
Logo 4) The counties almost make a heart…
Logo 5) A ray of light behind the color-unified counties
Logo 6) the HOT Counties emerge from the Texas outline unified but with county lines
C.B. Stubbefield initially got going in Lubbock TX. I was born in Lubbock. His most famous location is in Austin. I lived in Austin for 8 years…Everyone has heard the ‘Keep Austin Weird’ jive, this just waters the saying down even further…First i ‘painted’ the background with large ‘paper texture’ brushes I have. I used a parchment color. Next I found an image of the Stubb’s sign from the Austin location and gave it a sepia photo filter, then lowered the opacity to give it a ‘water-mark’ look.It also has a slight out-glow in burnt orange. For the color contrast, I used an obvious choice for an Austin-based institution: Burnt Orange. These were done with high-resolution ‘grunge’ texture brushes. The font is called ‘Headline One’….I seem to use this often. The brown was taken directly off the bottle to match. The bottle was given a drop shadow……in the words of Hank Hill…”yepp”
