Turns out I didn't I have just got to emphasise that I am really not sore at Disney for not being able to look at my artwork. I was fairly naive sending the artwork through directly. Since that time I have had a relationship of sorts with Disney and am more familiar with the way things work and with regards to me ever doing any work for them, lets just say never say never That said, I still sincerely dislike this poster and shall attempt to explain why... To me, this poster looks like a job that has been rushed together and thrown out the door (take the money and run if you will). It has probably been done by a marketing agency who have little or no regard for the material and are in it just for a fat wedge of cash. The concept is poor...I mean REALLY poor! If it was an attempt to parody the TS3 poster it failed miserably!! If it was made to serve as an introduction to the Muppets...it failed again. Does anyone remember the teaser campaign for TS3. They started out with maybe a dozen single character posters re-introducing the characters and eventually built up to a full on character driven image. This would have been 1000% better than this horrendous effort. Next up is the the actual craft of the poster. In addition to being an Illustrator I am a fulltime Retoucher and the image that has been sent out here I would regard to as the "Raw" image. It needs so much love and attention to give it some life. The Muppet posers, for me at least, ALWAYS look bad. They are lifeless, inanimate objects that do the characters, and the performances given by the puppeteers little justice. Kermit in particular here is just simply terrible. This poster need so much work in order to something I would consider acceptable. What about exaggerating a characters smile? Give life to the eyes? Exaggerate the poses? Make the armatures straight and even resemble a proper skeleton as opposed to bent metal covered in felt? And what about actually giving the poses some thought??? Fozzie holding his hat, Waldorf doing the rabbit over Statler - have we not seen this enough already? ? ? ? And look at poor Rowlf. People will probably say "well if you retouch them, they won't look like the puppets". To that I say walk into any Ferrari showroom with a Ferrari poster and tell me they look the same. Its about making them look their best! ! ! ! I'm sorry if I seem ranty, miserable, not in the spirit of thing or if people feel my comments are unjust. All I can say is (with the exception of my Threadless submission Dr Tooth) I put everything into every piece of work I do and get very annoyed when I see lazy pieces of artwork like this. There are some incredible talented people who would give anything to work on this brand - just take a look at all other other Threadless submissions other than mine, people who would have made a significantly better effort than this and I simply cannot celebrate mediocrity, even if it's the Muppets.
