Ed Roth Style Poster

I've been pushing this one back for a while now and finally got a chance to start on it. It's for a rockabilly group out of NYC, and they were looking for a retool of an existing image, based off of a Ed Roth Rat Fink style illustration. After about 20 thumbnail sketches I've come up with this…

The design is really busy, but I think the large black areas will calm it down a bit. I'm still not crazy about how the girl looks, but I'm good with the overall direction. And after an hour inking in Illustrator, I'm happier with her...she looks a little like one of Vince Ray's girls.

Updates to come.
