Insanely Cool Fan Made ‘Evil Dead’ Poster

Here is a nice little piece of art for you guys. Artist Karthik Abhiram created this stunning poster that shows off some of the great images from the Evil Dead remake trailer. It was created entirely with a ball point pen and looks cool as hell. We’ve seen a lot of awesome fan made posters but this one has to be one of my favorites.

For making the drawing, I followed my usual process – I took several screenshots from the trailer and used them as reference,” said Abhiram. “The drawing was done using primarily a black ballpoint pen, but a black marker was also used for solid black areas, and all the blood was done with a red gel pen. A slight touch of blue ballpoint pen is also seen – on the guy with the chainsaw.

After completing the drawing, I scanned it in and then adjusted the contrast in Photoshop Elements. I also overlaid two paper textures (bashcorpo’s texture 5 and 6 – these two are favourites of mine and I’ve used them very often), and then added the logo and the text.

The Fede Alvarez directed remake of Evil Dead hits theaters on April 12, 2013.

    Love it! I’m glad I made you watch all those horror movies when you were young.
    Keep up the good work.

      Yea man. I love the sketchy style, it really suits the Evil Dead. The red ink on black looks sick.
