Up Since Dark - Mock Poster by The-Ez Up Since Dark - Mock Poster by The-Ez
Just a quick mock-up of a poster because I felt like it. :meow: This was pure indulgence on my part. I promise I'll get back to my usual sketches and stuff now that this abomination is out of my system. :blush:

Up Since Dark is a project I'm developing steadily and sparingly. It's a buddy comedy set in 1987 about a girl who finds out her mom's boyfriend is an immortal magician. :D That's the plan, anyways. ^^;

Alright, enough of this. I have other projects I'm supposed to be working on. :faint:

Thanks for looking, guys! :heart:

I've commented on this before and it's still one of my favorite pieces! :heart: Do you have any issues with us fans printing this out to hang on our wall? I work in a print shop and we need written consent before we print copyrighted stuff like this. :D

How is this not in my favs yet?!? Everything about this is fantastic! Like, I'm not even joking, every time I see new art from you, I get really, really excited.  It's the equivalent of catching a brand new episode of your most favorite show ever. Can't wait to see the finished product!! You're doing amazing things!!!

Heeyyyy coming from you, that means a ton! :D Thanks so much! :hug: And thanks for the Watch, too! :heart: You're definitely lighting a flame under me, I can tell you that. :giggle:

Stay awesome! B-)
hiroshiparadox Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2014
Yeah, this totally looks like a legit poster from the 80s/early 90s. I subscribed to all kinds of gaming magazines when I was really young, and this poster reminds me of ads and stuff I'd see in those. The colors in particular have that feel, and it's super fun to see! I love that atmosphere you created here. Even the low-key type against the really vibrant, fun image feels familiar.

Oh, and I love the Up Since Dark logo! It looks really, REALLY slick! Great job designing that. : )

I love the expressions! Gangfield is hiding behind his shades with a cool-guy smirk on his face. :giggle: But, of course, Abi is the star. That smile of hers is ADORABLE. I love that spunky personality she has as she leans in towards (and in front of!) Gangfield, jumping in and stealing the show. I love how she peaks up over she shades to look at him and flash that smile of hers. The energy in her hair is great, too.

I think you did an amazing job with this -- with the expressions, the atmosphere, the energy, and the overall design and composition. It's all top-notch, Ez. :+fav:

I absolutely love how this just perfectly captures the old paperboard VHS covers of the late 80s and early 90s, even the color scheme it so fitting! 
The-Ez Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2014  Professional General Artist
Awwwwyeah that's a massive compliment! Thank you! :blush: :la: :glomp:

Like I got nothing else just thank you. :B :XD: :hug: :star:
molenas Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2014  Student General Artist
so will this be a comic or story? Anyhow, it looks super nice and I can't wait till its finished uwu 
3Fangs Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2014
EEEEEeeeeeeeeee!!!! :squee:
I love how you gave it little rips and winkles, like it's been folded and stuff! That's awesome! :hooray:

You really capture an 80s air with these two--their clothing, the colors, their hair...*drools*

How is it possible to make a 1987 mockup poster that looks like this!?

I don't know what it is, but you've awakened something deep in my heart that would love to see this fully produced.

Please do it!

I love the creases in the poster, and the 80's feel you have to the poster. And I love the idea. And it's Gangfield, isn't it? He's awesome :dummy:
FangsAndNeedles Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2014  Student General Artist

I love your addition of the poster creases :la:

Your painting is so good and I really like you 80-90's style, I have to say that this drawing reminds me about the movie "Barbie and the rockers". hahaha It's so funny! :3
Ps: Her hair and the jacket folds are amazing!
jessiestory Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This is amazing. I admit I laughed when I first saw it, but only because it's spot-on any 80s poster I've ever seen. :D

I look at this poster, and I can hear the song by the a-ha song playing in the background, "take on me!"
