Design Challenge - At the Mountains of Madness

Post  Live for Films on Sat Jan 15, 2011 12:29 pm

Live for Films

A new design challenge and the prize up for grabs is the graphic novel adaptation of H P Lovecraft's At The Mountains of Madness illustrated by Ian Culbard (the cover wrap is the image above).

Guillermo Del Toro is currently getting the film version sorted out. James Cameron is producing, Del Toro will direct.

With that in mind the competition is for you to design a poster for the prequel.

Imagine you are the designer assigned to put together a poster for the film. Not much information was included in the design brief.

The only info you have about it:

- Ron Perlman has a role not in the original story

- Tom Cruise may be playing the lead

- There will be Shoggoths, Elder Things and possibly giant penguins

You can choose the cast and whatever designs for the creatures you wish.

You have until Midnight GMT on Monday 31st January to get your design posted on this Forum thread

From badly drawn mayhem to super slick graphic design, all entries are welcome.

Once the competition closes all the entries will then be voted on by the Live for Film readers.

The winner will get the graphic novel of At the Mountains of Madness.

The competition is open to anyone, wherever you are in the World.

All work is the copyright of the artist/designer, but by entering you do give permission for me to post it on the Live for Films site.

Get drawing and good luck.

Nic Wassell tweeted this one to me. He said the following
"Not good enough to enter but thought u'd like to know ur comp inspired me to finally get Brushes!"

I just thought it should be shared here as well.

Here's my entry to the poster contest.
It's a bit different from the other ones, but I think it works just the same.

So, it's merely 11:30pm on Jan. 31st here in Tucson! Laughing

I realized that I didn't even check the true posting time until it was too late. But I was still motivated to finish, and that was great. Thanks for the contest and the inspiration! Glad to still post it.

No worries Johnny. Glad you did a poster and as I have just got onto the Forum to check the entries I will get it included in the final vote.

The new design challenge will also be going up today but the At The Mountains of Madness challenge is now closed. Voting will begin later today.

The next one involves remakes of Arnold Schwarzenegger films.
