Shadow of the Talon

<strike>WIP - (Just waiting on Jade's eastereggs for the credits)</strike>

Here is another mock movie poster. This time it's for the James Bond of Stock Photography, *jademacalla. His stock images are so action packed and on the edge, how could you not want to do something like this with them.

This is my take on a new 007 film starring Jade Macalla as Ian Fleming's James Bond. Step aside Mr. Craig, there's a new Bond in town. For some reason when I thought this up, I envisioned a dark composition with green highlights and undertones. The main setting for the movie is set in the orient as Bond... errr... Jade once again single handedly saves the world and dashingly sweeps women off their feet.

Lots of people to thank for their great stock:

Man: The one and only, *jademacalla, :iconjademacalla:. [link] If you haven't checked out his stock, it is a must!

Woman: Candi B. Shaw by ~Deathrockstock, :icondeathrockstock: [link]

City Skyline: *almudena-stock, :iconalmudena-stock: [link]

Japanese Gate: ~kairyuu, :iconkairyuu:, [link]

Background texture: CraigPJ - CraigPJ's Gallery on stock.xchng, [link]

*EDITS*
Title has been changed from 'Action of Valor' to 'Shadow of the Talon'.

Credits have been added... look closely...

Woman has been moved down to give more room for the title. She has also been blended a little better and a glow has been added behind her to make her pop more. I added some much needed shadow to her arm as well.

Glow has been added behind city.

A small bit of lighting work was done to the Japanese Gate.

"That's not very nice."

[Bond, after Camille just tried to shoot him]

I loved Craig's portrayal, it just looks so dark with him there. A new Bond film with another actor? I hope that decision was made with a few excellent reasons, because Craig isn't easy to top.

I have to say though that Pierce Brosnan was my fav next to Sean Connery :)

Yes, Mr. Connery is by far the best. I liked Pierce as well, but I think i'm enjoying Daniel Craig's darker more realistic version of the character alot. He moves up to the number two spot in my book. And, they all come after Jade.... but of course. :XD:

And be sure to check out [link] and [link] along with this submition. We hope you play along.

Holy. Freaking. Crap. You rock. End of story.

I'm so participating in this game. Parodies are my specialty, but I wouldn't top this in a million years.

I think Jade could kick Daniel Craig's ass in a heartbeat and not even break a sweat ;) (and I'm a big Daniel Craig fan).

I can't wait to see where this goes. :headbang:

That's exactly where I got the font! ;) dafont.com is awesome. It is Times Sans Serif. Most of the Bond posters I looked at while researching had sans serif fonts, so I just stuck with that. And the Times Sans Serif is still classy without being too fancy or too plain. I still want to tweak the title a little bit. I want to enlarge the "A" in action and the "V" in valor some.
