Traditional Oil Painting Movie Poster Illustration

I've been scarce for the last week.
Roger Pictures from Finland got hold of me and asked if I could do a 70's/80's style movie poster for them... in nine days.
I figured the best way for me to get an old school feel for the poster would be to paint it traditionally in oils... in nine days.
It was really hard work, but it was also one of the most enjoyable projects I have ever done.
The brief was to do an illustration that really paid homage to a certain low budget 70's movie duo - guess who!

I'm really pleased with how it turned out, and I can't wait to get going on another oil painting project!
