This week theme for the twitter hashtag
#AnimalAlphabets was “U is for Ugly Duckling”.
As in my nature I had to twist the theme a little and go on the fun side. I thought of something having the word “Ugly” and instantly the Western movie “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” by Sergio Leone came to my mind. I decided to depict the three gunslinger of the playbill as ducks! In the Italian version the “Bad” is actually the one on right side,the one being the “Ugly” on the english version, so I decide to swap the two to be accurate about the original version.
I used basic solid colors, and than did the shadows with the spray tool set on “shadow” on a layer set on multiply. I drew the text by hand to obtain a western style of my likng.
Very basic tecnique. Hope you like it!
