What is Graphic Design - Part Three The Appleseed Cast

I really like black, single tone, linear illustration and this is something which I need to practice and practice and practice if I ever want to get good at it.  The video below shows "The Appleseed cast" poster being drawn from start to finish then the pictures below show the final outcome.

The dark blue and turquoise tones of the poster praise each other and help to bring out the dark outline of the octopus. The tentacles give the piece direction and throw your eyes from corner to corner of the poster. This would definitely stand out along a wall of your everyday bland promotional posters!
