Mystery Men

 

Here is the artwork for Kotch Media's German DVD/BR release of the 90s comedy/super hero/action flick 'Mystery Men', Staring a mammoth amount of stars..
Ben Stiller,William H. Macy, Janeane Garofalo, Hank Azaria, Janeane Garofalo, Kel Mitchell (you know Kel from kenan and Kel), Paul Reubens (Pee Wee), Wes Studi, Greg Kinnear and Geoffrey Rush...
Theres a host of others but space was limited and i didnt want them all vying for space too much, just squeezing in the central Mystery Men was a challenge!


Kotch Media are the same people who released Super which i worked on, that time i created a sudo classic comic book cover design, so this time around I took my inspiration more from modern comic book covers to create the layout, so placing the character line-up on an angle and having the title treatment at an angled perspective as well paying homage the X-men and Avengers.


We wanted to lead with Ben Stiller as his character Mr Furious is the main focuses of the story, so i had his rage bursting out and Geoffrey Rush does a great turn as the big bad camp villain, he's got such a rubber expressive face in this and i really wanted to bring that out in the image as well.


Pretty much 90% of the film takes place at night so i kept to quite a dark blue colour pallet especially as Ben stiller is decked out all in black leather and he takes up a lot of the image on this one i wanted it all to complement that.

Fantastic illustrations! I'm speechless! It looks really awesome! I love how you incorporated all the characters in a unifying background. I love your color scheme too. It’s very "Mystery Man" looking! :)
