In 2013, Empire Magazine did an alternate poster competition for J. J. Abrams's second venture into the Star Trek franchise. I was already buzzing with inspiration around this film and had already created this artwork of Benedict Cumberbatch's character, Khan:
Being quite pleased with this illustration, I thought I could use it in my poster design. With that in mind, I began working on the rest of the poster. I worked on each element separately, starting with the creation of Captain Kirk and Spock:
I discovered this competition quite late, so I had to work quickly to put the rest of the poster together:
If I had known about the project sooner I would've loved to have spent more time and put even more hard work into this. Despite that though, I was happy with the outcome and it was great seeing the designs of fellow artists.
I hope you like it too! :)
