Ben Vs. the Dry-Erase Board

I recently had the pleasure of providing the promotional art for 's upcoming screening of 'Scott Pilgrim vs. the World' at the Trocadero Theater here in Philly. The original concept for the above piece started out as a crappy dry-erase marker drawing I did for my joe-job. They wanted the final art to look exactly like the original. So I took what pics I had of the board (now erased into history) into Photoshop and did a trace up then went to inks. I did a lot of little tweaks to almost everything to correct mistakes and add detail. The color was fun to play around with. I notice some artists these days use the gradient tool to get some nice fade effects going. This technique came in handy with the clouds and fire in the b/g.
