Studio B / DHX Poster Progression by Timon1771 Studio B / DHX Poster Progression by Timon1771
This is the progress image for:

We worked on this project for many weeks, critiquing the design, and shaping it to what it became. There were many more steps, but I narrowed it down to 15 versions.

I started brainstorming by drawing a few concept ideas with descriptions beside them. The "behind the scenes" concept was decided upon by the team, and we started the design from there.
Using Paint tool Sai, I started roughing out the layout for poster - keeping it very rough. (See version 2 in image)
At version 4, I started roughly adding in characters. By version 5, we had a very rough idea on what the poster would look like.
At v.5B, I started placing names on the layout for other artists to fill in.
Version 7 started looking more full - filling all the blank areas.
Version 9 had a different title I designed, but It didn't compliment the design, so we reverted back to the original title - which did work better.
At version 10, we were comfortable enough with the design to move onto the next stage = finalizing the background.

Version 11 was a very long process to draw in all the details. I used Adobe Flash to assist with the steel bars in the ceiling. It was quite challenging to get those squares to all line up.
By Version 13, it was time to vector the background - Also done in Adobe Flash.
When version 14 came around, the artists started adding their vector ponies to the layout - by this point, the poster was really starting to shine!
Finally, we reach Version 15 - many hours of vectoring and discussing of pony placement. The poster was now complete! It was printed off and sent to Studio B / DHX Media as a very large, high quality print!

This was a very large project. We had some of the best artists in the fanbase working on this poster, and if it wasn't for their skilled work, this poster wouldn't be possible! Thank you to all who was involved with this project - Every one of you made this poster reach it's potential!
