Fantasy poster progress

The Mixed Tape Film Series 80's Fantasy month.

It started with a sketch in my notebook:

The movies included Never Ending Story, Legend, The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, and Willow. Then there were some local theater politics that almost put an end to Mixed Taped Film Series. But you can't stop the revolution and we're set up for a new venue and all looked good. We dropped Legend which meant I didn't get to draw a pantless Tom Cruise, but whatever. I came up with this:

It all looked great, but remember those politics I mentioned earlier? They came back once again. We eventually had to drop Dark Crystal and Never Ending Story and lose the 80's theme. Now we're showing Conan the Barbarian and Dark Side of Oz (the Wizard of OZ and Pink Floyd mash up). Also Lucasfilm is being all wishy-washy so I think we're leaving out Willow just to be on the safe side.

This is the image we've finally arrived at.
