We’ll be designing the poster with the vintage style in mind and recreating effects that were a result of the cheap screenprinting methods used to manufacture the original posters. Taking the time to conduct a spot of research can really help develop the core ideas for your own poster.
Download a grungy texture to recreate a tatty old paper effect and fill the background with a swatch from your chosen colour palette. Seeing as the images are set against a white background, the easiest way to clip them out is to use Channels. CMD+Click the thumbnail of the duplicated channel to load a selection, then go to Select > Modify > Contract.
Scale and position the model into place, then load the selection by CMD+Clicking the layer thumbnail and fill it with a light beige swatch to create a solid silhouette. Over in the stock image document go to Select > Color Range and change the drop down to Shadows.
Scale and position the layer to match the existing versions of the model, then give it a Color Overlay with an off-black from your colour palette and set the blending mode to Screen. Change the newly created halftone layer to Darker Color at 50% to produce a subtle print effect. CMD-Click to load the selection of the new channel and remember to contract the selection to avoid clipping any white from the background.
Paste the arm into the main document, desaturate it, adjust the Levels, darken areas with the Burn tool and add some ink Photoshop brush marks to rough it up and give it a creepy zombified appearance. Toggle off all other layers and load a Shadows selection using the Select > Color Range command.
Change the fill of all the radial lines to white then paste and scale them into the poster design document. Use an ink stain Photoshop brush along with a Layer Mask to erase out portions of the lines to really rough them up with grungy style textures. I found a series of awesome creative commons licensed Zombie photos on Flickr by Sam Javanrouh.
CMD+Click the channel to load a selection of every individual halftone dot, delete the duplicated channel (use the trash icon, not the backspace key) then fill the halftone selection with white on a new layer. Change the blending mode of the halftone Zombie to Soft Light, then add a Layer Mask and erase out any unsightly areas of the background using a large soft brush. Toggle back the hot chick layers, then begin painting in a beige border around the document with a series of paint roller Photoshop brushes.
Use a range of ink stain Photoshop brushes to add some creases and general grunginess to the border. No vintage movie poster would be complete without a cheesy title set in some stereotypical horror-esque type.
Add a Drop Shadow to each text layer, but adjust the settings to create a solid blue outline of the text. Set the blending mode to Screen to render the black portions transparent, leaving just the white highlights.

In this tutorial you are going to learn a few good techniques and tips for color correction.
Then create a new layer below of the "Shadow" layer and hit Cmd+left click over the guy layer to load the selection and fill it with black, using the Paint Bucket Tool. Now create a new layer on top of the guy layer and call it "Light guy" and hit Cmd+Left Click on the Guy layer to load the selection.
Ok, now lets duplicate the guy layer and put it above all the layers and change the blending mode to Color with 60% opacity.
Rawz is our user generated site where anyone can share their work or work with the Abduzeedo community. Abduzeedo is a blog about design, we started it in 2006 and after all these years the site accumulated a huge visual library of articles about architecture, illustration, graphic design, UX design, mobile app design and a lot more. Each year Halloween gives us a great excuse to hack at our designs with the most grungy brushes and textures in our collection to create the most raw and gory artwork we can. The horror movie poster design we’ll be creating as part of this tutorial features a scary looking infected zombie fellow. Go to Image > Adjustments > Levels and increase the contrast by dragging the shadows marker to darken the photo.
Fill the poster design document with a black fill then double click the zombie layer and add a red Color Overlay. Our zombie character is currently wearing a pair of stud earrings, so roughly draw a mask around them and fill the selection in order to remove them.

Add a Layer Mask to the blood splatters layer and use similar spraypaint brushes to paint away the excess that hides the facial areas. Creating the text by hand helps avoid any duplicated letters that can result from using decorative fonts. Paste the title into the main poster document and add a Color Overlay to match the red theme of the design. Use the spraypaint brushes, this time at a much smaller scale, to add a range of drips and splatters around the text to give it more of a gory horror style.
Use the spraypaint brushes once again to paint away the lower portion of the character using black on a new layer. To relate to the old school B movie theme we’re aiming for with this poster design, a folded paper texture is perfect for creating the appearance of an old poster that has been folded up in a back pocket for decades. Paste the texture on the top of the layer stack, desaturate and invert it then change the blending mode to Screen. Finally, to give the design a slightly more retro and aged appearance, add a new layer filled with a very dark blue. The title position was over his eyes so either I had to edit the picture and don't feel like doing it atm or make it without fancy letters. Overall, the owl will have a dominant dark tone, since it will be the closest element, so we’ll need a light background to contrast with it. Create a new layer, name it “highlights base” and ALT-click between it and the layer below it. Repeat STEP 9 for the shadows, but set the Blending mode to “Multiply” and name the layer “shadows base”.
Grab the Brush Tool (B), set it to Watercolor, pick a saturated sky blue color and paint the area shown below. NOTE: You can also turn off the visibility of the grayscale lights and paint them again, but with colors this time. Turn off the visibility of the “sketch” layer, select the second layer created in STEP 23 and paint the right outline with a bright blue.
Grab the Brush Tool (B), set its Hardness to 0% and paint orange and blue light spots on the owl’s body. The helm needs a bit more contrast, so create a new layer above the base, set its Blending mode to “Multiply” paint paint more shadows. Open the “castle” picture, crop it to remove the frame (C) and double-click the lock in the Layers palette (F7). As a finishing touch, use the “birds”, “clouds” and the default brushes to add small details to the background, such as feint clouds, flying birds and glinting stars. I'm going to dropkick you into oblivion for meme abuse and I am NOT going to spend my money on 2 hours on a move where Uwe Boll would say it sucks. This cheap reproduction left a rough finish with lots of halftone patterns and a limited but bold colour palette. Here’s a few examples of other modern day movie posters that have taken inspiration from styles of the past. I’m creating my design at a large A2 poster size so it can be printed at a later stage so it comes in at 420x594mm at 300ppi. I found a great set of images from Shutterstock featuring a rather lovely lady in a variety of poses. The build up of the various layers all help add to the basic screenprint style, even down to the slight mis-registration effect between the beige base colour and the shadow layers.
Make the various tonal selections and build up the layers with the same effects to replicate more screenprint styles. Squash and stretch the meat into place to replicate a severed arm, then remove any portions of the original arm to complete the effect. Draw a rectangle on the artboard and move the lower two points together slightly with the Direct Selection tool. Download and open up the first Zombie into Photoshop, desaturate then dramatically increase the contrast using the Curves tool.
Scaling up an image over 10x its size would usually be a huge design faux-pas, but we’re going to convert the image into a pure halftone pattern so all those horrible artefacts that are created as a result of the scaling will be deleted. This particular font is a freebie named Feast of Flesh (fitting name!) Scale and position each word into position on the design and fill with swatches from the basic colour palette.
Change the Opacity to 100%, Angle to 90 degrees, Spread to 100% and alter the Size and Distance to suit.
Looks awesome, but I’m getting really confused with all the steps to get the half toning to work (in the girls).
Start off by opening all of your images separately and lets extract our guy from the background, use the pen tool. Low the opacity to 70% and duplicate the layer, then by using a large soft brush with 50% opacity erase some areas until you get something like this.

Grab the Dodge tool, select Highlights and set the exposure to 5% and highlight some areas.
Then just go back to the Light guy layer and using a large soft white brush start covering all the back area, until you get something like this. For maximum impact the design is created with red on black and has a grainy quality to relate to the low-fi printing techniques used on old school B movie posters. Press CMD+C to copy the selection then paste the clipping into your main poster design document. Choose a small hard nib then alter the Size Jitter and Spacing in the Brush options to create a rough and irregular line. Also, being a horror movie design the titles are often engraved, carved or created from blood splatters, so they’re easy to create manually. These spraypaint splatters do a great job of matching the rough texture of the zombie layer. I purchased and downloaded the Billing Block template from Graphic River and quickly pasted the default wording into my design, but the whole block can be customised with your own movie info. Adjust the opacity to fine tune the effect so it’s prominent enough to see the paper creases, but not too overpowering. Change this layer to Screen to give the black areas a subtle blue tint, which helps capture the faded ink effect seen on old prints. The grainy texture from the photo clipping and the spraypaint brushes do a great job of creating a raw and gritty horror movie theme, while the red on black scheme and creased paper texture helps give the design an old antique appearance. At the moment, we just want to establish the tones in teh composition, regardless of details or color palette. Also we will need a clean area to add text, so I guess the bottom area will do nicely and will provide a nice stability element for the entire design. Now grab the Brush Tool (B), set its Hardness to 100%, Opacity to 100% and paint over the owl. You can either look up one of the characters (mine was Metalbeak – yes, the villain) or shape your own, custom design. Now grab the Brush Tool (B), set the Foreground color to a midtone gray and fill the entire shape.
Pick a darker gray tone, set the brush’s Hardness to 100% and Opacity to 100% and draw curved, thick lines like below.
Hit CTRL+U, check the “Colorize” button, set Lightness to +1 and play with the Hue and Saturation settings till you get a blue tint, then apply a 3 px Gaussian Blur. These kind of movie posters get better with age and all examples nowadays are distressed and tattered with rips, creases and discolouration. The key features I had in mind for the design were three hot chicks with big guns standing over various zombie parts with a grungy cityscape in the background. Load the selection of the cut-out by CMD+Clicking on the layer thumbnail and paste it into the main poster document. Basically, you increase contrasts a lot and then select whatever is left in mid tones and turn those into half tone, correct?
In addition to that, the best images get selected and published on the Daily Inspiration series here on Abduzeedo.
We’ll create a low-fi print effect with red on black and use a range of splatter brushes to rough up the design and capture the horror theme. Don’t worry too much about painting over the facial features, pay more attention to the pattern of drips and splatters.
Grab the Brush Tool (B), set its Hardness to 0% and Opacity to 40% and paint the soft highlighted areas.
The color intensity is controlled by the pen pressure, use this to create dark tones faster. Do the same for the other texture, but place it above the layer group and erase any extra areas. Hit Delete, then CTRL+D and duplicate the layer a few times (CTRL+J) to cover any accidental transparencies. Lets have meaningful conversations without spammy keywords or domain as name or else will be deleted. Hot chicks and gruesome zombies mixed with the cheesy and cheerful character of 50s advertising, can you get any more awesome?! Create a new layer (CTRL+SHIFT+N) and name it “reflected light” and set Blending mode to “Linear Light”.
