80s Movies - Ghostbusters







For my second illustration in my 80s Movies series, I went back to my childhood and a movie that sparked more excitement than any other of the time - Ghostbusters.

This was by far one of the coolest movies of the mid 80s, that drove kids wild. I remember going to see it and being blown away by the whole package - the special effects, the story, the acting, the humour - it was all just COOL.

So in this poster I took some extra effort to get the details right. Starting with the Gozer building, (in reality 55 Central Park West in New York) I found as many source images I could and did my best to get it right - its not 100% accurate by any means, but I think Ive got a good interpretation of the architecture.  For the movie, the special effects artists added on another half again to the top of the real building - the real one finishes where the 'church-like' feature about halfway up.

Finding reference for the Gozer pinnacle at the top was a problem - I couldn't find anything other than long distance matte paintings, but then luckily, I found a site detailing an old auction where the actual model was for sale.

The rest was drawing the Ghostbusters themselves, and the Ecto-1, which was great fun, and finally Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

I really enjoyed thins one, despite the detailing - hope you like it too.

  18. If you are like many individuals you probably seen tons of commercials for new releases on the TV and when you actually watch them in the theater they are complete flops. They make these movies seem great on the ads and it is mainly because they show you all of the decent scenes in the movie on the commercial itself. Lots of movie buffs are wasting their hard earned dollars going to these terrible movies when they really should just taken the time to view a movie review site. ดูหนังออนไลน์
