80s Movies - Raiders of the Lost Ark






Now we're talking!  Of all the movies of the 80s, this was the one I fixated on the most - yes, even more than Star Wars! Raiders of the Lost Ark.

I think at first, my brother saw Raiders and explained it to me. I remember not wanting to see it, as it sounded like a horror film! But not long after, I did and never looked back.

For this third illustration in my series of 80s Movie Posters, there was no question in my mind which one I would do next.

But the first two in the series were done with an icon / 8-bit style, which suited the family nature of Back to the Future and Ghostbusters very well. But on trying it with Raiders, it just didn't seem to suit.  I've put the Indy I created for it below - so you can see what I mean.

So, I decided to break from the format, and move back into my ultra-silhouette style for this one - and I'm glad I did. I was pleased with how it came out - the Indy was drawn by me straight onto the computer - by the way, I don't think I've said before, but I draw into Illustrator directly with a mouse - I don;t use a graphics tablet. Never got on with them.

So hope you like it - My inner twelve year old was going mental all through it. Either that, or it was food poisioning.

  3. Wow! This is awesome! Is there any place I can pick up a print online? I have a nerd room in my house (I have an awesome wife) and this would really look great framed on my wall.

  5. Mind movies are mainly three minute short video films that can really fill you with inspiration. If you have lost all hopes and inspiration then these solar movies can really help you to achieve what you really want in your life. They are just like visualization tools that can really help you to manifest all your dreams and desires. These movies mainly depict all the human emotions, inspirations, expectations, courage and strength. These movies are a great way through which you can really manifest your desired goals.

  6. Over the years, the notion of what makes family movies what they claim to be has changed radically. There was a time when a family movie took the time to craft characters by casting consummate actors who could really deliver a performance and having scripts that told harrowing stories. Nowadays, animation seems to have taken over in order to appeal specifically to children, with film critics highlighting the often similar plots for many of these movies. What about the rest of the family? https://freenetflixacc2019.weebly.com/

  7. Choosing a party wear is the most important preparation to get ready for a party. If you are able to make the right party wear combination, you can steal the limelight at the party venue. stag night
