AD Francis Fung, Ink Paper Auteur Cinema Group
This is a silkscreen alternative poster for Ghost of Tsushima. It was developed by Sucker Punch Production and published by Sony in 2020. It is a visually stunning action-adventure game, and the story is centered around Jin Sakai, a samurai on a quest to protect Tsushima Island during the first Mongol invasion of Japan.
I’d like to thank AD Francis for all his patience, support, and understanding during this project.
This piece was, by far, one of the most laborious pieces I have ever worked on. The composition and concept were relatively straightforward on this, but there were many interweaving action happening in between the shifting winds, flying leaves, and the main character. And inking was crazy! My brain was steamed up and on a full work mode stroke by stroke, line by line haha. I also wanted to draw his armor and props as close as the original design, so it took for a while to complete even a small part of the figure. In silkscreen projects, I have to work with limited colors and be aware of layer separation for production, so it’s a different way for me to color compared to other projects because I often work with colors intuitively in full range.
I’m so glad that I could complete this piece with help and support from AD Francis. I am so proud of this piece and happy with the outcome.
