Title: BERSERK Movie Posters
Post by: Griffith on May 19, 2006, 09:04:39 PM
Calling all photoshop fiends. We've all seen the awful Berserk movie threads over the years, now it's time to bring those bad ideas to life. I want to see YOUR Berserk movie poster. I'll get things started with this masterpiece inspired by the latest Berserk movie thread:

(http://www.skullknight.net/griffith/BERSERKMOVIE3.gif)

Coming to a nightmare near you.

What kind of BERSERK: THE MOVIE you make is up to you, I chose the route of the terrible movie here, but maybe someone can make a poster for a Berserk movie that actually looks worth watching? Anything goes, basically. That said, but if you're interested and short on bad ideas for a Berserk movie, just go here:

No problem, and it looks good. That's actually the credits and poster of Flesh & Blood, a movie Miura mentioned as having some minor influence on the series (along with others of it's kind), specifically Guts' appearance as to Rutger Hauer. The joke is that it might be about as close to "Berserk: The Movie" as there is. The REAL Berserk: The Movie!

Anyway, nice work so far everyone, but just to clarify, I meant to emphasize live action movie posters with real people. Smoke got the idea... sort of. =)

And lovely work too, CnC.

Post by: Griffith on May 22, 2006, 12:53:52 PM
Thanks guys, like I said, I always wanted a photorealistic Guts image, just never took the time or effort to really put it together until this poster concept (and even then, I was hoping CnC would just do it =).

Like Aaz and Chung explained, it's basically someone's excellent cosplay with Wally Szczerbiak's head thrown on top, as well as some beefed up arms using the trusty clonestamp of power. At one point I was even going to try to transplant Arnold's arms on there, but that just wasn't going to look natural.

As for the poster concept, it's basically one of those individual character posters. I wanted to keep it simple and down to earth looking and have the focus be on Guts obviously, so I just modified the original background to fit the size and to more "feel the part" of somewhere mysterious and decrepit where you might run into the Black Swordsman. Speaking of which, I left in the iron supports coming out of the walls because you really can't tell what they are (could be vines, or snakes!), and they look cool. Movie mistake! =)

Basically, I wanted it to convey a feeling more personal and gritty than epic and polished, and I'm pretty happy with it; which is to say, look for me to shamelessly post it and link it an innapropriate and obnoxious amount of times. :guts:

http://www.skullknight.net/griffith/BerserkMovie.jpg

Well, hello there again! :carcus:


Anyway, let's keep this wreck a rollin'. I'd love to see someone go the epic route with a photorealistic character montage, Star Wars/LOTR style. In any case, MORE SUBMISSIONS!

1. Hot damn that is a mighty fine looking guy! 2. God dang it I have to find the movie so I can import it. 3. Man.... *wiping away drool as delicately as a lady can :p *

Great work though! I had this great picture of schwarzenegger I was trying to photoshop Guts' mechanical arm onto, but it didn't work out well. Might come up with something in the future though.  :guts:

Sorry Griffith, but although that is a great piece of work, i didn't like it. It doesn't look like Guts too me, he seems too young and pretty, needs more scars and "roughness". And the most obvious point, he's too damn short!
Apart from the model, it looks like a neat poster.

Personally i would've chosen Dolph Lundgren as The Punisher for the model (body & face), he looks like a younger Rutger Hauer, and has the perfect chin and that natural washed out expression for Guts.

Post by: Walter on May 23, 2006, 06:22:08 PM
And the most obvious point, he's too damn short!
Too short? If you mean Wally Szczerbiak, he's 6'7".  If anything, he's too TALL for Guts (Guts is ~6'4" according to a recent stat in YA, thanks Aaz).  Apart from that, what visual cues make you think he's too short? What's your frame of reference, Donnie?

Quote

Few problems here. a) Rutger Hauer doesn't look anything like Guts to begin with... b) Lundgren was born in 1957. So, he's now teetering on 50.  c) The "perfect" chin?  Lundgren has a square jaw, so much so that I can literally hear Jay Leno frothing at the mouth in jealousy.  Besides, it's too defined for Guts.  Guts' face is far more sinuous.

In the end, it's just your opinion. I just personally think that Wally Szczerbiak gives off the "impression" of Guts better than other contenders.  But no one can be perfect, seeing as it's a fictional character we're trying to match up to.

In addition to what Walter said, Guts is pretty young and handsome in spite of what he went through all his life. And while Wally Szczerbiak doesn't have enough scars, neither does Dolph Lundgren, so I'm not sure that's much of a point.
Title: Re: BERSERK: THE MOVIE Posters
Post by: IsolatioN on May 23, 2006, 06:51:43 PM
not to mention that with the power of Photoshop, I'm sure Griffith could go back into the poster and just add some scars to him. Not that it's needed because this is just all for fun  :guts:
Title: Re: BERSERK: THE MOVIE Posters
Post by: NightCrawler on May 23, 2006, 07:55:39 PM
Of course it's all for fun...
Aazealh i don't know what are your standards for beauty, but i don't think Guts is that handsome.

For all of you: when i mentioned Dolph Lundgren i was talking about his Punisher character, and if you saw that movie you know what was my point. Dolph in that movie has a rough, scared and dirty look, and deep vengeafull eyes that remind me of Guts mostly in the Black Swordsman days (like Griffith's poster).
That character portrayed by Dolph was IMO the best model for Guts.

Walter, when i mentioned his height, i wasn't talking about Wally Szczerbiak, but the model Griffith used for his poster (some small asian dude cosplaying).
Oh, and Rutger Hauer was just a small reference (albeit a dubious one) much like that actor was a model for Miura.
In the end, i still think Dolph's chin gives him that somewhat sarcastic edge, oposed to the boyish looks on Szczerbiak.

Aazealh i don't know what are your standards for beauty, but i don't think Guts is that handsome.

Uhh well a lot of people do, especially women, so I think I'm not going to give too much credit to your opinion on the matter.

when i mentioned Dolph Lundgren i was talking about his Punisher character, and if you saw that movie you know what was my point. Dolph in that movie has a rough, scared and dirty look, and deep vengeafull eyes

Well yeah, he has more of a vengeful look in his eyes while posing as The Punisher than Wally Szczerbiak posing for the NBA, but as far as it goes he doesn't even look very rough or "dirty" on these pictures you posted, he's still a pretty boy. And since the thread is about making a poster it's all that matters.

(some small asian dude cosplaying)

I think Walter's point included "how do you know he's small?" What in the poster indicates it? He seems well proportioned to the DS he's carrying, and the rest of the picture can't reallybe used to guess his size.

Oh, and Rutger Hauer was just a small reference (albeit a dubious one) much like that actor was a model for Miura.

Yeah, pretty dubious I'd say, I think we can all agree that Rutger Hauer wasn't much of a model for Guts in reality, and that they don't look alike.

In the end, i still think Dolph's chin gives him that somewhat sarcastic edge, oposed to the boyish looks on Szczerbiak.

In fact I find Wally's expression relatively sarcastic in the picture Griffith used, more than Lundgren's on the DVD cover actually.

Anyway, aside from all these discrepancies I understand why you would see Dolph Lundgren in the role, so why not give it a try and make a poster out of it? After all this is what the thread is all about, so let's be productive! Clothe him like Guts and prove your point the hard way! :guts:

Title: Re: BERSERK: THE MOVIE Posters
Post by: Griffith on May 24, 2006, 02:44:55 AM
Yeah, Dolph Lundgren looks good for Guts in those Punisher shots (especially the front cover image), but Szczerbiak just looks more like Guts in general, facial feature to feature, whatever the picture. They could play Guts from different eras though, or in different movies, like James Bond. :guts:

Anyway, other than that, I obviously disagree and find some of your points more subjective than substantial. Looks too young? Guts is still in his early 20's.

Adressing your other issues, yes, the original model is obviously too small, but that's why, if you notice, I shrunk Szczerbiak's head in the shot to make him Guts proportional. Other than that, there's no frame of reference other than the DS which is sized to the body (as it should be). As for the rest, I'm just not a fan of adding a bunch of random scars and blood and other such shit unless it's called for in the context of the picture (Miura doesn't either). I've done it before, and it just mucks it up and would go against the cleaner and stylized look that would fly as something you would see out in the theater lobby. His skin looks rough enough for Hollywood work, and from a distance the scars shouldn't be so visible or it would look cheezy, it's a good starting point. Afterall, if it was too messed up to begin with, we wouldn't get to see the progression of scars throughout the film. =)

Speaking of which, remember that it's supposed to be someone playing Guts in a movie, not like a photograph of Guts (but I think it serves that purpose as well in a stylized presentation, as much as movie posters do, i.e. Spider-Man). Even still, I don't think he's too handsome or pretty for that, Guts does happen to have good looking features (and I don't think Dolph is much different in that regard, other than his features don't resemble Guts' as much).

Following up on that, like I said, not only does Szczerbiak more genuinely resemble Guts, there's a lot more of Guts in Szczerbiak's expression there; Lundgren has a blunt stare in those shots, and while that's very appropriate for Guts generally, the Szczerbiak shot is more interesting and expressive; cocky and sarcastic, dangerous (the DS helps), and kind of an asshole; basically, early Black Swordsman (also telling that he looks like Guts even when he's not making, as you put it, a "natural washed out expression for Guts" that Lundgren is making or I or anybody could make if they wanted to look like Guts in a narrow way). Finally, Lundgren is obviously more recognizable, and I was going for more of a no-name vibe here to further emphazize Guts and leave some mystery to him.
Remember, I wanted it to look like a GOOD movie, not a B movie. =)

That basically sums up my point of view. As always, thanks for the comments. A little creative difference and "controversy" is a good thing, and I'd love to see a poster with Dolph as Guts.

I think the hieght problem would go away when you take away what we're relating it to.  Perhaps shrink the size of the background or the plants?
Since he's in front of a black background mostly you could probably get away with a little transforms.

Since he's in front of a black background mostly you could probably get away with a little transforms.

What problem, though? You're telling me those plants make him look unbelievable at a rather meager 6'4"? It's totally relative. He could be 10 feet tall in that shot for all one can tell, but people obviously don't think that way. Trust me, I watch pro basketball players almost everyday, where the illusion is most apparent.

(http://members.aol.com/ron80045/images/running.jpg)

Meet Wally Szczerbiak, he's 6'7", 250 pounds.
Does he look tall enough here or shall I photoshop in some "appropriately sized" flora?

I've got plenty more examples too, including MJ (who has two inches on Guts, and wasn't considered big) looking like Allen Iverson (who's 6' himself yet is considered a "little man"), and shots of Shaq standing alone in his LA days where he might as well be as big as Verne Troyer. Basketball players look normal and even skinny standing next to each other and we speak of them in relative terms (Kobe's not a "big man", he's only 6'7" afterall), so despite the fact we know how tall they are, we honestly don't really think of them that way. For Guts, it's the opposite problem. Again, it's all relative visually, and I believe mentally, in this case.



Moving on, gotta give Chung his due. I like it, especially the Terminator for Skull Knight. :badbone:

And I mostly just like the design overall, it's simple and effective and really that's the most important part whatever one's skill level. Looks good.

Easy, there, skippy.  I'm not talking about Wally Szczerbiak, but the body you've put his head on.  Sure, making his head the appropriate size to give the appearance of proportions similar to Guts is one thing.  I meant the original photo of the cosplayer was of a guy who was shorter than Guts (or at least looked like it).  I suggested scaling the background to compensate.  You can ignore it if you want.  :schierke:

Let me help by adding an appropriately scaled background.

you mask like a girl!    ...funny pic tho.  See!?  he looks bigger now!  :troll:

All this talk wouldn’t be nessesary if Guts would just stand closer to the doorway...

(http://www.skullknight.net/griffith/gutsruler.jpg)

Ready to rob ye olde shoppe of convenience.

And I was going easy, you guys are just too casual. :carcus:

I know what you meant (the Wally image was just about deceptive proportions/perspective), but what’s there for me to ignore? Part of the problem is nobody has explained something technically wrong other than they “think” or “feel” that the guy is too small to be Guts. I agree, and more importantly, he's not to the correct proportions, which I already compensated for. Having done that, it doesn’t make sense to further modify the image based on the size and scale of the original proportions, which no longer exist. These aren’t companion pieces or meant to be compared like, “Hey, look how much bigger Guts is than this asian dude!” So, there's no point. To me, this is like comparing the Hobbits in LOTR to the real life actors, "They're obviously too tall!" One has nothing to do with the other.

Even if I did further scale the background, it wouldn’t change anything relative to the image itself; Guts could be taller, or he could just be standing next to a smaller doorway and plants. Same difference, and it doesn't say anything about his height. It's still all relative, and I think it's just a mental hang up on the funny asian man with the eyepatch (he's probably going to be bitching me out on here too in a minute =).

I've never even seen the original/cosplayer image, and his height here looks fine.  The dragon slayer is our best reference point for relative height, certainly not shrubbery... 

Why are people still debating this?

hey you'll get no argument here.  I was making a suggestion based on some earlier comments made about the original cosplayer's height.

It's not that it's perfect or I can't take the scrutiny (that's more specifically what I was looking for), it's just that it's in the "DONE ZONE" for me, meaning it'd take a miracle for me to work on it ever again, or a damn good reason.

Anyway, I have the utmost respect for your advice on these matters, that's why I was pushing so hard, because I look to you for technical answers (even though I didn't believe there was a problem, in the back of my mind, "What's CnC seeing that I'm not?"). So, while you may have just been making a casual suggestion regarding the situation, I was taking it seriously. And I was more expecting you to criticize the lighting if anything (which I've payed more attention to because of you, BTW). =)

And while you're moving on... make another damn poster. :casca:

Well, there really isn't much to crit on that one.  damn good work overall.  Like I said earlier, it was more of an off the cuff remark on a possible way to give the appearance of size.  While sticking him in front of the solar system can work, I was thinking of something more subtle  :guts:. 
But that said, there isn't much to crit, as far as lighting is concerned.  Did you put in the reflected light off the DS or was that there to begin with?  It really sells it, IMO, more so than the scale would ever.

I'll try to preface my crits with level of severity in the future.  But I assure ya, I love the piece.

And while you're moving on... make another damn poster. :casca:

I'd love to.  While I was finishing up this larger book I was working on another 2 books came down the pipe.  While it means more money it also means less free time.  I'll get another poster in eventually, promise.  I already have a pretty good idea of what I want to do  :carcus:

Wally also wanted to do something with the teaser poster concept and I was thinking of something with the Eclipse, but you beat us to the punch with that one. Simple and effective, good work, Skullgrin.

It works for me, a nice little poetic closer. If anything, I'd just remove the exclamation point. Enthusiasm isn't cryptic enough. =)

I second this motion.


P.S. CnC, I didn't add the reflection, just kept it for exactly the reason you stated (I actually removed it in one incarnation). Frankly, I didn't think the DS should reflect like that, but it sure looked cool. :guts:

I really like the basic design here with the fog effect. However the Guts figure is a dead giveaway... Perhaps if you only showed a piece of it, or in a more realistic/dramatic pose? How about showing both Guts and Griffith.  Other than the text at the top, I'm not really sure what kind of emotion I'm supposed to draw from Guts standing like that.
Title: Re: BERSERK: THE MOVIE Posters
Post by: Griffith on May 28, 2006, 02:44:42 AM
I think my favorite so far is Wally's, I think the execution is better than the sum of the parts. It has a really interesting spacey feel to it you can't quite put your finger on. Just cool.

And Ravant's looks fine to me. As far as the figure goes, looking at it objectively (as if I didn't already know it was a figure), it looks passable the way it's being used (in vague and stylized teaser fashion) and I think the simple pose helps that. If you contorted it dramatically I think it would look more awkward. Other than that, I'm obviously a fan of the lone Guts shot. Overall, it makes me think of volume 22 and Pixar. =)

Phew . . . Here is a movie poster for those who like the idea of a Slan-Guts pairing. I think that the expression visible on Guts face really makes this poster.
 With little more then MS Paint to work with for the lettering I decided to letter it by hand as everything else looked even worse:
Quote
"In association with Kentarou Miura and A.O.W. productions . . . Comes a Love-story so moving . . . it will transcend your sanity . . . His too . . ."

I actually think it's pretty neat, and the text is really cool. Definetly the style you could see in thetres. The only real problem I see is the blending of the tree branches with the sky and the trunk with the ground.

Maybe if yuo scaled teh background they might not look like ornaments! :troll:

Just kidding, cool work CnC. It's probably the most unique poster in the thread. Much more grounded and less fantastical, a whole different approach. Not what I expected. Reminds me of Silence of the Lambs (probably because Sparn and I were talking about it last week); a kind of subtle straight-forward approach with a realistic background, so to speak.

It's certainly the most "organic" feeling to me. I'd love to see you mess with it some more, but you sound like you've already abandoned it. =)


Anyway, I was thinking of consolidating all the posters submitted into the first post so they don't seem lost in the bowels of the thread (they'd still remain in their original spots as well, but they'd also all be in the front for easy viewing, seperated with credits). Tell me what you guys think of this idea.

Thanks guys, and look what I found, it's the apologetic 2006 DVD release!


(http://www.skullknight.net/griffith/80'sDVD.jpg)

Complete with a cleaned up, watered down, generically modern style and more cliché tagline! :troll::

Since it's the DVD release here's the behind the scenes making of featurette...

The main man is of course Dolph Lundgren circa The Punisher (as per Casting Director Nightcrawler's suggestion). The armor and Beast were modified in photoshop from images of some model kits and the DS is from a repainted statue (from DirectDK and the Art Department at http://www.berserkstatues.com/). The title logo and font is based off and created from the bigdullredbrand image made famous at Black Sun over Midland, and the bitchen font used for Dolph's name is called Metal Lord (other fonts used on the poster and DVD are Goudy Old Style and Copperplate Gothic Light, the "deluxe collector's edition" is from a Troma DVD =). Finally, that killer tagline on the original poster was penned by Script Supervisor WallyB. (who also did the soundtrack) and a special thanks to Executive Producer Aazealh for his input throughout the production.

Again, thanks for all the kind words and encouragement, and keep those submissions coming!

I like this one a lot better than the first.  The beast mode seemed kinda tacked on and pushed to the side.  Perhaps if you had it above and faded in the background or something.  Either way this one is much nicer, imo.

Thanks, and funny you should mention that stuff... the DVD is actually closer to what the original poster was going to look like before I really went for the whole 80's B movie motif with Dolph. That's why it's got that slightly blue tint, higher contrast, rougher look, tepidly cheesy tagline, and of course, the crappy superimposed monster/alien ripoff hovering awkwardly. ;D

I love the differences from those old "embarrassing" posters to current DVD releases where they try to class it up, with sound, though boring, results.


Thanks again for the feedback guys, but it's someone else's turn now.

I think I saw Mario Kassar's name is in there, and the only movie (I could find) with him as producer and Dolph starring is Universal Soldier.

Yeah, he's not very pretty, but uh... this is supposed to be uhh, more gritty and realistic, no pretty boys in the Band of the Hawks. Unless you just meant he looks crappy, which is also true. :guts:

It's actually kind of still a work in progress (even the banner in my sig is different from that one), I have over 100 different versions at different stages, and I at least 50 of them could pass for "final." So, feel free to suggest anything, I'll likely try it and update at this point.

P.S. The iffyist part for me is Guts face, specifically his chin and neck, I went with what I felt looked most like him, though it's certainly not the cleanest looking version.

nah.  I meant it looked like someone clocked him pretty good.  But I don't mind that, realism wise.  The rags to riches applies very well.  Plus it makes 'griffith' stand out a bit more, which makes sense in the story...

only thing that really stands out is casca, her face being dead on pointed towards you strikes me as odd.
Also from a design perspective the brand moon and castle seem wierd.  Maybe just pick one, or have the castle be the background and the moon where it is.  but those are just suggestions

But its good stuff.  I laike it a loht

Post by: Walter on June 21, 2006, 07:55:48 PM
Ahh, it's finally done.  Looks great with all the elements here together.  Unlike CnC, I'm a big fan of the Black Sun over Midland imagery in the background.  And Casca's dead stare is appropriate I think, considering her attitude during this section of the manga (she was never really "one of the guys" :carcus: :guts: :judo:)

As far as design goes, this one shaped up to be the most realistic poster as far as Hollywood poster designs go.  Great work duder.

Title: Re: BERSERK: THE MOVIE Posters
Post by: Griffith on June 21, 2006, 09:16:25 PM
Trust me, none of the faces are right somehow. :guts:

Casca probably sticks out because she's the only one that's totally foreign to the original image AND she's had tons of work done to her from the source (http://www.skullknight.net/griffith/aac.jpg). I had to use a little of every trick on this, but mostly tons of clonestamping in photoshop. There's really no way I can get this "perfect" with my skill. I could start all over and I might do better or I could do worse, doesn't matter.

I'm happy by the reactions here, my biggest issue is with Guts' face, but it seems to pass for now at least, and the rest.. I'm done with. As for the design stuff CnC brought up, I agree, and I have versions with just an Eclipse (no brand either) that look classier, but it's supposed to be one of those EPIC posters cluttered with shit, like the new Star Wars and LOTR posters (also, I couldn't resist the BSOM tribute with the brand inside the eclipse). =)

Here's the source image, BTW:

http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film/Poster%20pics/kjm-014_the_man_in_the_iron_mask.jpg

Thanks for the feedback thus far, keep it coming really, there's certainly a lot that can be improved still and I do plan to revisit it at some point after I get a little distance from it now.


P.S. As for the answer to the trivia question from the last poster: vlad was so close, those credits were from Terminator 2, and Mario Kassar indeed worked on it. You kind of outsmarted yourself with the Dolph connection. =)

I think the biggest problem with Guts' face is it looks like its been smushed up against a sheet of glass... actualy that goes for Judo too.  And if you could get rid of that hat... I can't remember Guts ever wearing a hat. 

One of these days I should learn a thing or three about photoshop so I'd know what the things I suggest involve.

Good call, I already thought the lower half of Guts' face was 2-dimensional (and it was actually worse earlier in my fixins), but Judo's I can easily fix because I artificially widened it, giving it that smushed look, so I can just move it back. Guts will be trickier.

And if you could get rid of that hat... I can't remember Guts ever wearing a hat.

Yeah, as Saiya mentioned, it's an obscure reference from this manga I like called "Berserk", there's even an anime. Try looking at those for the mysterious hat. ;)


P.S. The hat is probably my favorite part of the poster, BTW. :guts:



UPDATE: Guts and Judo have been altered. Judo back to as close to the source as possible (if he still looks squished, there's not much else I can do), and Guts just to give you a different look anyway; cleaner, if not better.

Tell me what you think.

Guts, Judo and Corkus have an abrupt change in skin tone at the halfway point in their faces. if you were goin' for shading I think you need to be more subtle with the change.

Yeah, he was totally right (again, except for the hat, what a loser :troll:). BTW C, any suggestions or techniques for Guts' chin and neck? Also, I'm going to add more shadow seperation between his and Casca's face (by showing less of Guts').

Ah, now this is the kind of stuff I want to hear! Yeah, definitely needs attention; it's one of those issues I learned to ignore along the way while I worked on other aspects ("I'll get back to it... really"). Thanks for the wake up call (now I just need to hope I don't make it worse =).

Hey,  I did a quick (like 10 minutes, so its rough.... REALLY rough) 'paint-over' of what I mean.

(http://www.mattbrowning.com/berserk/guts_fix.gif)
1st frame is the original
2nd frame is the edit

basically I just evened out the skin tone a bit, then I fixed the jaw a tad so its a bit more proportional to the face.  then I did some quick shadow work.
skin tone was done with a lasso selection, feathered slightly and then used a HSB adjustment on that selection.
jaw was done with liquify.
shadows were done with yet another feathered lasso selection and a gradient to smooth the transition of the shaded areas.

It needs some work, specifically I would need to sharpen some aspects of the jawline (a bit, not too much) and bring back some texture of the skin.  Also forgot to add a shadow to indicate the separation between the mouth region and cheek (that wrinkle of skin right next to your nostril, I forget the clinical term).  Also the mouth position needs some work.
Just my suggestion...  cheers

Interesting, I actually have a few similar to that (here's the chin just prior to my original post, you'll notice Guts' relation to a 2-dimensional Jay Leno (http://www.skullknight.net/griffith/leno.JPG)), but yours is certainly better in it's own right, though, even properly textured, I don't know that it fits the rest of the style of the poster (of course, I'm already cheating with Guts and numerous other elements already). Very useful model for reference, especially in making it more 3D, and I think I'm going to just keep doing new chins and necks from scratch combining what I have now, the original, and your model (along with some other elements I haven't tried) until I hit paydirt.

And thanks a lot for the effort, man. Too much.

my pleasure.  yea.  like I said, I think the "texture" needed to be added to my edit.  that includes the original "grit" of the poster.  I just think that perhaps the change of skin tone was a tad abrupt (what majin was talkin' about).  Only while workin' on it did I think, 'hmmm, perhaps the jaw is a bit too low'.  I think Malkovich's (sp?) goatee was perhaps covering his jaw line.
anyhoo, great job nevertheless and a more than worthy addition to the hallowed halls of the berserk poster thread.

Well the subject is the breakup in the pattern.  The armor immediatly stands out to me even if it shares the same color scheme.  Perhaps something could have been done to make the eye pop out a bit more.  But it still works.

Berserk number 1!

Followed by its sequel; The Berserkening. The sequel ends up grossing far more money than its predecessor and has a far vaster budget. However critics and diehard fans don't like it as much as the first one. :p

Source Image (http://www.coyotethunder.com/RedMonkey/images/TheIncredibles.gif)

Flip back and forth between it and the source, it's fun (and kept me from straying too far from the original design mechanics). Anyway, spend some time with it, I managed to fit in all sorts of hidden details and tricks of the eye... well, not really, but there are 8 characters represented, can you spot them all!?

A screencap from the anime I got at arcticnightfall, and a helluva lot of clonestamping. :carcus:

Yeah, I don't know why but I just woke up this morning... with the urge to do this (kind of like that Gaiseric image). Can't really explain it, but it was done and posted like that while others I've had in the pipeline for awhile I continue to wait on. I think it was just so simple there really wasn't anything I cared to work on improving over time. Anyway, this connection was really inspired by Slan coming out of the Troll guts, but if I did that, it would be another one I'd be laboring with forever, and it would lose the whole rose/face thing and probably be much crappier overall upon completion. So, I'm happy with this.

Here's a laugher. This one came up in the chat room today, so I gave it a quick shot. Sort of a copout just inserting Beast armor rather than turning Samuel L. Jackson into Guts (you try it =), but I love the look of the Beast in that wifebeater. I basically stopped caring when it came to making "Casca" or proper coloring, and just wrapped it up soon after. You get the idea.

Agreed. Now I'm going to have nightmares of Frodo being a crossdresser.
Griff, couldn't you have swapped Frodo's face for, say, a 13-year-old girl's?

Also, I don't see Serpico or Isidro. (Nor do the two women in the background look like Casca and Farnese to me, though I guess you probably didn't want to tweak them much?)

Great job with Guts' hair though, and SK looks like a toy but I guess that the Frodierke is probably just so creepy that it downplays SK too much.

Ah, this is the perfect thread to post this. So earlier this summer I discovered a small wormhole underneath my desk. Apparently it leads to the future and spits out future-y things occasionally. So far I've gotten a cool pair of laser sunglasses, a pen that works in zero-gravity (haven't gotten the chance to see if it actually works yet) and a book about the financial crisis of 2017 (hint: the CEO of Chase Bank isn't who he says he is). But this is the first time something Berserk-related has come out. I'm guessing it's a long-form poster for what I believe to be the FINAL Berserk movie. Unfortunately I can't read Japanese so I have no idea what it says.

Anyway without further ado, enjoy!
