The Dark Crystal poster by markwelser The Dark Crystal poster by markwelser
Finally free to do some of these posters without relying on a horror theme. Decided to play around with one of my favorite movies when I was a kid--The Dark Crystal. My first poster in this series, Re-Animator, was pretty simple and some of my later designs got a bit more complicated. I wanted to get back to that initial simplicity here.

Not sure how I feel about those cracks. I may revisit this later.

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

A nice uncluttered style and a great tribute to a brilliantly made movie!

Very nice color combo and original. Fits the movie great!

Awesome! I love this, really original. You should check out Strongstuff on Deviant as well. He does a lot of movie poster art like this. I'll definitely check out maybe buying this as a print.

Thanks a lot! Yeah, Tom Whalen (strongstuff) is about a thousand times better at this than I am. He clearly knows what he's doing--I'm just farting around figuring stuff out as I go. Glad you're digging it, though!

The dark crystal is my favorite movie of all time. A simple yet affective poster :---)

Thanks a lot! When I was a kid, I watched the VHS so much and bothered everyone in the house with it that my older brother destroyed the tape with a giant magnet, making it completely unwatchable. Boo!
