Not my particaular style but it was wicked fun to do!!!
Ok, so first off, I have to explain this one lol.
This is a project for my Graphic Design Class. We spent the entire semester, each student has a specific animal and anything we did this semester had to be with THAT animal only. My animal was of course, the wolf. This assignment was to come up with a conceptual subject with our animal.
As I have an incredibly hard time with conceptuality, there is just too much I could do that I cannot seem to narrow it down to an idea that makes much sense.
My teacher gave us a cool idea on how to reach such conceptual ideas, brainstorming as you will, by putting the name of your animal, in my instance, a wolf, in the middle of a page, then branch off from there, whatever comes to mind.
That was wicked fun as I came up with all kinds of crazy stuff, some funny, some twisted, ie: American Idol Wolf, Timber pack of cigarettes, Wolf bacon, etc, needless to say, that was the best part of the class as far as I am concerned.
Anyway, with regards to this particular piece, I did my brainstorm and came up with Wolf, the movie with Jack Nicholson and Michelle Pfeifer, from there, I went to Jack Nicholson movies, and here in lays my conceptual poster.
Anyway, there are obviously issues with it, perceptionally I think, but, I was more stoked to come up with a conceptual idea as opposed to the technique itself lol.
Thanks so much for the awesome stocks to the below artists!!!!
All proper stock credits were submitted and noted for this and the indivdual artists on the stocks were notified for their permission. Thanks a bunch to all

COnsequently, my teacher, who I strongly feel hates me, did not like it . He would have rather seen the same model as from the original movie poster.
To me, its MY conceptual poster, so why should it be a replica of the original, and why should I use the same stock images for it? If I did that, then it would not be MY conceptual poster now would it? At least, thats the way I look at it.

You conceptually brainstormed and came up with this.
Hmmm, yes I think Jack would approve.
Unlike in the shinning she is not in a panic, sure she’s scared but she also is ready to deal with the beast. I don’t see her trying to climb out a window.
He might be one badass wolf but I don’t think he knows who he is dealing with.
I’ll put my money on her sitting in front of a fireplace with a wolf carpet at her feet.
Most important thing is having fun, can’t be to concerned with what others think.
Even if your not satisfied with the end result, you learned and had fun doing it.
You can see I don’t worry to much with what others think lol.
Enjoy what you do.
And if you feel like going off the deep end then do it.
I haven't met any artist yet that doesn't have self doubt issues. Think it just goes with the territory.
Its actually a good thing, it’s the force that drives us to do better.
You've got the right attitude.
I guess the pacification is knowing you won't have to adhere to their wishes forever. !!
And especially if the teacher happened to be younger. THAT can be hard.
Really, any age, trying to squelch (which to me is what it is to dictate how things are done, in regards to things to do with inspiration...but I do realize it's an art 'class', so....
"This too shall pass" - just tell yourself that. LOL
