^I was thinking the same thing. Also, what's up with the Mondo logo being so front and center?

That being said, I'm a big fan of Jock and I really like this.

Yup, that's the one!

It wouldn't prevent me from buying or hanging it, it just caught my eye. I'm probably crazy, but off the top of my head, I can't remember any of Mondo's posters having it displayed like that.

heres a shot of the original clayboard piece. and this is going to del toro, sorry.
Without knowing anything spoilery about the movie, I'm curious why the woman at the bottom was added after the piece was "finished." That seems like a pretty major element to add last minute. It's also what makes process images so interesting to me.

because GdT and i werent sure what "supernatural" elements we wanted to add. we had a handful of ideas and i didnt want to commit to one in the drawing. once i got everything scanned and shaded and the lighting in place, we wanted to see what would work best. the woman at the bottom was like Option F or something, but its the one that ended up working the best atmosphere wise and balance wise. there was SO much going on in the scene already with all the lighting and snow and such, that we went for something more sublte vs like, floating ghosts cluttering up the open air even more.

They've done it for a while on prints that have the space for it. It just used to be the old classical logo, which blended in a bit more with studio logos. This stands out more just because of the new logo's style.
So it goes...

I like the reused/revised title font from the original film's one sheet:

Seriously dude, thanks for sharing. Process info is honestly really interesting stuff.

Hope you're feeling better.

What's the point if we can't get the only likeness that matters?

Dude me too! I honestly think it might have been the poster I really got excited about.
