Proof of Heroes

This is my entry for the Monster Hunter Movie-inspired art competition by Talenthouse. I had high hopes for this piece, but it didn’t get selected. Oh well. You can check out the winning entries here.

I wanted this poster to be reminiscent of the original video game box art, of which we see the very first hunter confronting Rathalos. But since this is a movie, I incorporated head shots of Artemis and “The Hunter”, including the other monsters we see from the trailer. I also want the composition to tell a story.

The image is framed by a suggestion of a portal to the location where we see the bone remains of Dah’ren Mohran. I predict that Gore Magala has something to do with the portal, therefore the lightning behind him (hinting his unretracted feelers) connects to the monolith at the bottom 🙂

I also have a step-by-step walkthrough by layers uploaded to an album here.
