photoshop tweaking by Michael J Dowswell
Now here comes my statement.
We all have different monitors with different settings on them, mine is quite old now and the brightness contrast is set way up, so this MAY look completely different on mine. Drew Struzans original poster is very very contrasty here on mine. I hear somebody cry out in the corner…”I love contrasty things!”...I hear somebody else from the back row cry out…”my god its contrasty, TOO contrasty”...then there’s “DOWSWELL, you got your monitor set up right???” then there’s a reply to that “there’s NOTHING wrong with liking contrasty things, all art is subjective, there is NOTHING wrong with wanting it not so contrasty.....and I possibly don’t have my monitor set up right to be looking at Drew Struzans poster in the correct manner” said by Dowswell.
It's very much something that has come out of the digital age, that a traditional artwork (don’t know if Drew Struzan paints on canvas or does it with a graphics tab on the computer though) can then go off and sometimes be altered by individuals on a computer once its been scanned in who make it too contrasty or alter the contrasty one to be not contrasty, heck!, I did that right here and now...I’m guilty here of altering this thing too!...
What does Drew Struzan want?...THAT’S the question. Is he happy with what happened?...its something that’s very hard to find out. But it’s a important question. Hells bells this may be EXACTLY how Drew Struzan wants it...(the original, not my version)...
I felt it was too contrasty and not dusty enough, with Indiana Jones you think of a lot of dust.
MIND YOU, this location they’re in this time round is WET jungle...hmm, actually, that could be why they went with it so clear and contrasty...
