Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016).
This study focuses on the movie posters from the 2016 film Fantastic Beasts.Currently featured are three main protagonists, Newt Scamander, Porpentina “Tina” Goldstein, and Queenie Goldstein. More characters will be added as they are completed.
For this project, I used Adobe Photoshop, and had the movie posters as a reference. These were really fun for me to work on, and include important aspects of the film in the background. I had a lot of fun playing around with my artistic style, making the characters more realistic, and the backgrounds more abstract.
I hope to complete the full range of movie posters to add to this collection, but for now I only have Newt, Tina, and Queenie completed.
A Little About Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Fantastic Beasts follows a young English Wizard in his journey to America. Set in the 1920’s, the era and aesthetic of New York is in full swing, and wizards have been deemed dangerous by society. That is not to say however, that there are no more wizards-they are simply living and working in secret. Newt brings along a a suitcase full of wonderful and, well, fantastic beasts that manage to escape. These creatures may cause mayhem and destruction, while others are simply after shiny objects. One thing is for certain though-all of the beasts must be recaptured by Newt and the friends he meets along the way-including sister witched Tina and Queenie, as well as the no-maj Jacob. All the while, they must be careful not to look in the wrong direction or make a wrong move, because dark wizard Grindelwald has escaped and is on the loose.
