A Good Man Goes To War by ameba2k A Good Man Goes To War by ameba2k
A long time coming, this is the final poster for the first half of series 6 of Doctor Who. It features nearly all the main characters from the series, which have been absent for the majority of the posters so far. As it was the last episode, I thought it was apt.

You can purchase this and the rest of the now in stock posters from the store: [link] :D

Thanks :D
Only advice I would offer to start with is keep the colour and the shapes as simple as you can to start with. If you can make your design in just two shades of a colour then you can do anything :)

Brilliant, shades of Rosemary's Baby with the cot in the poster; suppose that episode has many echoes with the film as well!

You know I'll be honest, I had no idea that film even existed! Pure accidental relevant design element :)
Thanks for the insight though!

Nice work! Think I need to add it to my list of films to watch, see if I can match any parallels with the episode myself :P

Amazing! I think it was the most difficult episode to capture in poster (from first half of Series 6). The coat and tHMonks at the bottom look the best. Kovarian's face is very appropriate. One thing: I don't remember airplanes....

The Doctor summoned the aeroplanes for the battle scene. Thought they suited being in the top corner there :)
It went through quite a few alterations, but I think I settled on a decent design in the end :) Thanks for the comment!

Cheers mate! Had to re-watch the episode to find something to put in the top left. The fighters fitted very nicely.

By far my favourite poster of yours so far. So many elements but you capture them all so perfectly and so stylishly!
My favourite element is the Doctors cot. So meaningful. Very well done! Worth money to spend on defiantly, if I wasn't a poor student that is :)

Thank you. It was by far the most challenging to do! Never had so many characters in one design before.
I may be running a competition or two regarding this poster soon :) Keep checking the store's competitions page this week: [link]

I like the new format, how the bottom title./dates are not contained in the same color rounded corner segment though I DO like that format a lot. It's different but still looks good. Took me a moment to see Amy and Rory. I know it's hard to vector a character's features and make them distinguishable.Not sure about the flesh melting down the middle. but I love the Headless monk symmetry and how you kept the silhouettes at the bottom. I like the space-fighters. Madam Kavorian was well done too.

Any reason for the half-tone faces besides Kavorian? Hers is more a organic shadow and theirs is just straight? Design choice with meaning or just because?

Here's my ranking of the first half posters thus far from strongest design down :
1: Impossible Astronaut
2: Almost People
3: Day of the Moon
4: A Good Man Goes to War
5: The Doctor's Wife
6: Curse of the Black Spot
7: Rebel Flesh

Happy you like the new formatting. I thought I would just go for something a bit different for the last episode of this series part. Its my first attempt at creating the core 3 characters in vector, as I have steered clear for the posters so far, so I'm glad that they turned out okay :) Might have to work on making them instantly recognisable in future posters :D A challenge!

I think that Kavorian needed a bit more definition on the face as she is only 2 colours, 1 if you discount the background. So the more bold the shapes the better.

Thanks for the ranking, I think mine follows a similar suit, They almost go in a similar pattern to my favourite episodes, probably not a coincidence :P Can't wait to have a stab at the next episodes! The trailer looks very cool.
