Here’s an idea I had for a retro sci-fi futurism poster featuring a comic style for a made-up Planet of the Apes cartoon…
Retro sci-fi Planet of the Apes cartoon poster:
I really enjoyed making this one as, for me, Planet of the Apes is the be all and end all of retro sci-fi futurism in movie form.
I wanted to make something that was part graphic and part illustration with definite retro feel.
Here’s the pencil sketch:
So I just scanned it in and started to ‘pen tool’ and ‘lasso’ my way around photoshop. With a wee bit of air brushing too.
This would, in my opinion, make one hell of a cartoon series. So I designed this poster for the even that such a 1968 cartoon version of Planet of the Apes would be made. Awesome.
Or maybe it could be an animated feature cartoon. One can dream.
Stay tuned for more retro goodness!
