Sleeping Beauty Psycho by Sindorman Sleeping Beauty Psycho by Sindorman
Here is my first entry to the Disney Club Poster Parody, where the objective is to do a parody of a famous movie poster featuring Disney Characters. 
I chose to do Psycho and Sleeping Beauty, as i love both movies, and i thought they'd be a good fit, since they came out only 5 years apart, and both Aurora and Phillip are pretty good fits, looks-wise for Anothony Perkins and Janet Leigh.

I love the simple/stylized look of the original Psycho poster, and just knew that i had to chose it once i decided, and since i figured it wouldnt be among the average persons top-choices. Both illustrations were drawn by hand, hand inked, and then scanned and colored digitally. I later added screen print effects, and aged it up a bit to make it look like something that could be from the 60's

The original poster can be seen here: www.impawards.com/1960/posters…

Huh, this is interesting.
...and, I have no idea what this movie's about. Is it like Sleeping Beauty or is it like Psycho? But I think it was neat to replace the Psycho title and tagline with the Sleeping Beauty title and line. And the stylistic stuff, both with the original poster being stylistic like Sleeping Beauty, and what you've done with the poster with effects and stuff.
Are all the names in that column from the Sleeping Beauty movie?

I'd imagine its about a 50 % of each kind of deal. Up until "Once upon a dream" its all sleeping beauty, then things quickly turn dark! Yeah, the names in the column are the Voice cast members of the Sleeping Beauty movie :)

Oh man this is creepy!! Clever idea but really scary to think of Prince Phillip as a murderer, especially a murderer of Aurora! but thats what makes it so intriguing great work:)

I didn't expect anyone to choose Psycho for the contest, but fortunately I was proven wrong =)

Haha, yeah, i figured i'd chose something a little less obvious, so i didnt compete with anyone else for the idea. Pluss, i'm a huge sucker for vintage graphic design, and i've always found the Psycho poster to be really cool!

I love the aged and distressed look of the poster, great effect!:thumbsup: and how the idea is inverted  from all the other entries,  as you adapted it to the Psycho poster while still being about Sleeping Beauty.:clap:

Cool. :) Good job getting the facial resemblance to Janet Leigh. Sleeping Beauty also works surprisingly well as a suspense film. Cheers. :)

Ha ha very nice. In this context, I can see how kissing a comatose girl would be very creepy. The prince as Norman Bates is hilarious.

Haha, thanks a bunch :) I figured there was a certain similarity between prince phillip and Norman Bates, looks-wise, so i figured it would have fit pretty well!

Ooh! Positively creepy! I love it! Sleeping Beauty seems oddly perfect for the tole of Mrs. Bates. I appreciate that you shortened her hair to match the character from the movie. :thumbsup: :)

I love the nostalgic feeling this drawing has. It looks very beautiful! Aurora kind of reminds me of Marilyn Monroe here. You made a beautiful entry! Good luck in the contest! :wave:

thanks so much! Yeah, i was and am a bit iffy about the hair, since i'm not sure it looks enough like her, but it turned out pretty decent in the end :)

Ooh, this is a good idea!  I recognized the poster even before I read the title.  I guess a guy sneaking up and kissing a girl in her sleep could be pretty creepy in an Alfred Hitchcock context. ;)

Haha, yeah, as i was doing this, i imagined this whole "what if" with a Hitchcock directed Sleeping Beauty! Would've been pretty interesting!
