Hello. Few of you have probably seen snippets of Artwork sprinkled through this Board and thanks to the suggestion of @Master_Dahark I've decided to make my own thread.

I'm going to start with Artwork of my own Bruce Murdock thriller series.

EDIT: See below.

333650_430523996985557_953385108_o.jpg
^This depicts Bruce Murdock and Rylus Carlyle, his soon to be best friend.

As you can see, my style for the Artwork is heavily inspired by the Special Edition/VHS artwork of the James Bond films. My series is heavily inspired by Action movies of the 1970's and 80's. It also is influenced by the James Bond movies and Hitman videogames for the Noir feel.

Leave your comments, Critiques or Ideas. I'm just happy to show off my artwork. :)

    Thank you. It was indeed very fun to make. My original concept was for it to be made in a parking Garage, but I wasn't allowed to film in the one at my dad's work, and I happened to have found this little spot in the park by my campus and it had the same design I drew in my storyboards and BOOM! grabbed my best friend, brought my Prop guns, filmed it in about an hour, and edited it in two and done. :D

    The PPK is an airsoft gun, and the grenade launcher is a prop I made from a golfball caddy tube for the barrel, and a cheap plastic Nerf gun handle for the frame. and the P99 was photoshopped in. :D All the other guns are Airsoft.

    Oh yeah, I love building props out of everyday parts. I made a shrink ray prop out of junk.

    Here's the Grenade Launcher.

    Well I've done a heavy update of my Bruce Murdock series. Lots of retconning and editing of story elements and have solidified the series to 5 stories instead of seven like I originally had. "Spacelurker" has been removed altogether for being too similar to Moonraker and Death in Shanghai and Blind Fury have been merged together to create Eye For An Eye. And Included are new poster sets for this year. :)

    Bruce Murdock: Agents of Illusion.
    1176118_562052760499346_738047206_n.jpg

Bruce Murdock our hero..well anti-hero is a vigilante. His father was murdered by gangster Nathan Greene in 2010. Bruce has sworn vengeance and vows to kill Greene and destroy his organization. However the mysterious organization Illusion Industries sees Bruce as a potential tool to wipe out there competition and lower the crime rates considerably. So Bruce finally has a chance to get his revenge, but he's not alone. He'll have the help of hacker Rylus Carlyle who is being blackmailed by Greene to do his cyber crimes. Sasha Hamilton, an undercover Police officer who's on Bruce's trail but waiting to strike and Earl Jonas, an ex gangster who worked for Greene but snitched on a few details so Greene wants him dead. Illusion decides to form a team of with Bruce, Rylus, Sasha and Earl and they become...The Agents of Illusion!

When things get heated, Bruce goes in to kill Lee Xang but get's captured by his henchmen Zao. Bruce is tortured to the point of near death and Rylus and Earl manage to catch the shadow and make him talk. Meanwhile Sasha goes to save Bruce by pretending to be a brothel girl. Meanwhile a real brothel girl, helps Bruce escape. Bruce gets spotted and Zao goes on a chase through an old abandoned apartment complex where Bruce is outgunned and outmatched and has to use his wits to slay the henchmen. Bruce will face his mortality when he finally slays Lee Xang in Traditions of the Trade.

    Bruce Murdock 3: Illusion of Death.

Assassins out of no where start trying to Kill Bruce and Rylus and then it's revealed. Illusion has betrayed them. Illusion follows a certain standard. Once something is used up, it's time to put it down. so Bruce, Rylus, Sasha and Earl have to survive on there wits and expertise and take on Illusion's deadly assassins...however the consequences will never be the same as Sasha gets murdered in a drive by and Bruce calls for the blood of Illusion's founder Clarence Edwards in....Illusion of Death.

Bruce manages to escape thanks to the mine he planted and Him and Earl continue to lay low until they discover a recording by Rylus. In the recording, Rylus reveals that him and Bruce are stepbrothers and that his hack worked. Bruce manages to break into Illusion's computer mainframe and finds out Rylus is still alive.

    Bruce Murdock 5: Eye for an Eye.
    1003053_562052880499334_211656647_n.jpg
    The story for this one is still in development but I wanted to upload the poster anyway. Basically, someone is getting revenge on Bruce, wants to start a war and become a mad dictator. Simple enough. This is the Last film in the series and it does end on a high note.

    I hope you all enjoy learning about my Character. Thanks for your attention. :)

    Thank you. To me Logo's are one of the most important part of any Project. I feel by changing up the logo, You give the poster it's own visual and identity. By doing so it branches it out from the others. :)

    I agree. There have been instances where I spent more time picking fonts and logos for my artwork than I did to create the drawing. They are a crucially important element indeed.
