Day 9 - Star Trek The Motion Picture Poster - Star Trek 365 by Lee Sargent 2018

Star Trek The Motion Picture Poster

The Star Trek The Motion Picture poster is phenomenal, it’s a true work of art that I will never come close to capturing in my style.  That said this came up a lot better than I expected and it was actually some fun putting it together.

I did the ink lines first and that was pretty clear this was going to be all in the painting, as it was a pretty empty page.  The I used my Winsor & Newton water colour markers to do the main columns of colour. Then painted the black in with one of my standard water colours and let that dry, pressed it flat again and took to it with my prismacolor pencils.

I admittedly cheated on my ethos and used a ruler on those lines.

I then cropped it so it filled the entire frame of the image and there you have it.  It’s rough and tumble but I think it has a bit of charm to it.
