No offense to Drew Struzan, the guy is a legend and his work speaks for itself. But as one photoshopper points out, by breaking down his style and using some photoshop magic…anyone can put together their own Struzanized movie poster. As Rick Davidson points out “A standard movie poster is 27 x 40″ (68.6 x 101.6cm) with about 150ppi (pixels per inch)”, so get ready for a huge file. This is a pretty awesome tutorial that shows you how to go from the raw materials found in the first image…all the way to the last image below. Great work Rick, and I’d love to see what some of our readers could come up with. Please visit Developertutorials.com to see how Rick did this, and try something on your own.
