Photoshop: Markus Burke

Another approach to the movie poster assignment.
Markus is a deeply enthusiastic young man. His initial idea for this image incorporated a dozen small images and tried to tell the whole story of the film in one poster.
It didn't work.
After discussing his ideas, he came to an awareness of the power of suggestion.
He created an image that's about motion, energy and wild pacing.
Most significantly, he created an image that makes effective use of the program and says more with less.

There are still some legibility issues, and the novice's love affair with filters is evident. But Markus made giant strides in his understanding of design on this image.  
He learned that control of the tool is better than using it as a toy, at least if you aspire to be a professional.
