These are the first set of explorations that I drew from the keywords given to me. Mystery, Eerie and Playful were three of the main ones. Balancing the Child-like feel of the film as well as the mysterious side of it was the crucial aspect of the imagery.
This option was a little too detailed and intricate to Nihar's Liking. The next approach was a much cleaner and neat version.
A few closeups of Option -2.
Apart from the poster I worked on the title design for the film taking the same keywords ahead.
I have used an existing font for " PAPERBOAT " as it suited the context the best. And I tried to get the child-like & playful character through the word " sailor ".
The colours are based on the tone and mood of some screenshots from the film
Finally I put together the title design and the poster digitally and gave the poster some texture and colour in order to give it some depth and finesse.
