Shaun of the Dead poster by markwelser Shaun of the Dead poster by markwelser
I've seen a lot of folks do Shaun of the Dead stuff. While most folks tend to focus on the zombies, I wanted to remind folks that it's also a romantic comedy so I tried to get that across not only with the design, but the colors as well.

I'm sure a lot of Shaun fans won't really dig this, but that's just too bad, I suppose.

UPDATE: Lost all the studio logos and changed some fonts around, including the main logo.

If you're interested in buying this as a print, please go here:

Brilliant. Better than the official poster.

Very nicely done. It's nice to see a poster that isn't of the stained shirt.

Thanks! I always try to do something different from what everyone else does with these posters. I like that a lot of folks do the same thing so it's easier for me to know what to avoid. Heh.

You're right. I'd totally forgotten about this cover until recently when looking through the Walking Dead Covers book I got. Oops. Originally, my layout had the couple holding hands in a much wider shot then I kept zooming in until I was happy with it...then saw that cover again. Oh well.

I'm a fan and I like this :) Is it bad though that instead of assuming the people holding hands were Shaun and Liz I thought it was Shaun and Ed? Ahahahaha.

Well, like the rest, I love it.

Shaun and Ed (well, even Simon and Nick) are just very bromantic guys XD

Glad to hear! Shaun and Ed? Heh. Well, I guess that's one way of looking at it, but no, you're right--it's supposed to be Shaun and Liz.

Thanks! I initially had it as black and red, but figured that was too obvious and horror (plus, I'm trying not to fall into the trap of using that combination for every one of these). So glad you like it!

Very true! I fell into that trap with some pics I was doing in Art that were of horror themes; then I decided to Mix it up abit. :)

Very nice work, Shaun of the Dead is a friendship story too ;)

How do you make the folds on the poster?
Reply
:iconmarkwelser:
markwelser Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2010
Thanks! I use some folded paper textures and lay them over the design in photoshop. I either use some I've found online or create my own. It's all a lot easier than I thought it would be.

You're welcome :)

I already searched these kind of texture online, but I didn't find what I'm looking for. I have only crumple paper.

Here's one I've used quite a few times on these. I crop a bunch of it off and only use a few squares at a time. Once it's enlarged and printed out, it can look a little dodgy (which is why I've started making my own) but it works out pretty good for the most part.
