The Crow B&W poster
When The Crow came out in theaters in 1994 I was at a turning point in my life and the movie amazed me. I know since then that it was no cinematic masterpiece, but it still occupies a key place in my heart. When thinking of a subject for my next Black & White piece, this came to mind. I drew Eric out in Adobe Illustrator Draw using a few reference stills from the movie and then moved it over to Illustrator and used Astute Graphic's awesome Phantasm plugin to generate the halftone FM background. I reused the concentric crow shape from my Valknut piece as it seemed to offset the starkness of the initial design.
