Movies From A to Z: ZodiacThis tracker was my first tracker that i ever hosted. I really wanted to do something movie themed and to coincide with the Academy Awards. I basically sent out requests to all my favorite carvers and had them fill up the tracker. I was going to take whatever letter was left after everyone chose theirs. I had a feeling i would be doing one of the less popular letters so i already had in mind what movies i would be doing for certain letters. I chose "Zodiac" because of my love for all of David Fincher's films as well as it was one of the few movies that began with "Z" that i liked. I wanted to do a card with a movie poster look to it. I had this idea to do a double embossing where the title of the film would be black and the Zodiac symbol would be red. This took a little bit longer and was more challenging than i thought. But in the end it worked out and it looked cool. I liked how the black embossing almost disappears with the black card stock. I then had three different images i collected to carve and assemble. The two main characters and the golden gate bridge were all separate images i found and then pieced together to carve. I thought it turned out pretty well. I think Robert Downey Jr's face could have been photoshopped better and his hair got cut off a little but it's a nice card. I added some fog with a pencil for some of the background and used a grey card stock for my foreground stamps and then pasted the whole thing onto black.
