I did a lot of movie poster work with Stephanie Allen over at Fox Searchlight, but the only movie where the actors were ugly enough for my drawing comps to beat out headshots was Sideways.
Sketches for Sideways- I did about 50, and they used them throughout the campaign. Never went to "finishes" at all.
The Winner. Turned on it's side with a green background...
Some comps for Dannon, never went to final. Nice idea, though. Different.
