I have a fairly vivid idea in my head of what Last Resort is about, but I wound up keeping the poster too simple for much of it to come through. (Spoilers for a movie that doesn't exist.) The concept came from combining Taylor Hebert and Ninomae Ina'nis. Basically, a bullied high schooler comes across a possessed grimoire and decides to use it to claim some agency over her life, then things go wrong. (Now that I say it out loud, it sounds more like a cross between Carrie and Faust.)

Anyways, the poster is very barren and a bit ominous—a young woman in an occultish circle in what looks like a blank void. Not much is clear. Which strikes me as a pretty plausible poster for the first movie in a horror series. Next week I'm going to be making a poster for a horror sequel. Should be interesting!
Making the figure legible at such a small scale and with such a limited color palette was an interesting challenge, as was making the circle not blend into her arms or dress. Shame that the only color left was that brown...

Love the backstory. Nice poster, and I agree that this minimalistic design is plausible.

Cool poster, and good description!

Would you please mind to create another preview image that is not scaled down? Scaling ruins the pretty pixels. Maybe just take a crop of the main image? Thanks!
