I need a high quality poster that i can use as an advert, flyer and a framed picture above the alter in the training area. The poster should also be so eye catching that it could go on sale in the future from my website if people desire a copy. As such It should be of suitable quality and detail that it can be printed out on a plotter without losing any of its detail on either paper or canvas (as in the case of a wall hanging scroll). 11"x17" might be a good size but I'm open to suggestions.
The poster/ art work will be of Zhang Tao Ling, a taoist tiger boxing expert, sitting on powerful black tiger (see the attachment Celestial Master Zhang). The man himself should be heavy boned and powerful, the iron whip he carries should look thick, heavy and solid. The whip should have a red tassel on the hilt and a red cloth tied on the blade (see the attachment Cai Shen). He should be wearing vambraces/gauntlets on his wrist and have powerful, bare, forearms. The black tiger should be powerfully built and have a fiery look in its eyes along with a fierce countenance. The background should be lightly smokey or cloudy and contain the outline of a spiritual/ghostly looking figure. I need to see art work that transcends the usual public perception and details an almost modern graphic version of an old school idea..hard to describe. In our close circle we know Zhang Tao Ling as "fierce old one eyed Zhang", he should mirror this image..but with both eyes. The picture should command respect.
The black tiger was thought to be a messenger between the spirit world and this world, hence the ghostly figure. Zhang Tao Ling, although a taoist, should look like a cross between a Chinese warlord and an old school strongman while the entire piece of art should retain an oriental flavour. Included are a number of images and some links.
