Through my years at both Stan Winston Studio and Legacy Effects, I have made a nice handful of ads for Cinefex as thank you's to the crew from the owners.
I thought it would be cool to show all these ads in full and also with only the background - no text or logos. Some of these are pretty complicated Photoshop documents becuase I didn't always have the exact image or angle or lighting to fit my design... sometimes I didn't have anything at all because no photos were taken of the final character. That is when I had to get creative and "fake it" somehow. Let's just say it might be surprising to see what I started with on some of these!
After 40 years, Cinefex sadly published its last issue in February 2021.
