Ok, so a few months back i had to make a poster for media, It's not being used for anything other than to get me a grade, no promotions or making money from it. Anyway I did it, but when i look back i'm not happy with the results, so I'm completely re making it. I've been working on this for about 30 mins and this is what I have so far, keep in mind its a WIP, I'm blocked for ideas atm so I thought i'd upload it and see what you think of it so far. They're pretty big so instead of posting the images ill just post links to the respectful deviant art page
Links to photos used:

A good start.
It's a poster, the font needs to be bigger and clearer, since I was unable to read it until going closer to the screen and slowly reading it, posters should be large and easy to read from a distance.
Also, rather than having the model far from the beast, maybe an idea would be to merge them together slightly, using the blending effects on Photoshop, thus indicating that she is a woman that can be seen to be beastly when aggravated, a metaphorical device of her anger and her power.
Also, it is not obvious that this is a perfume poster until seeing the end. Say if I was driving in a car and saw this poster for about a second, I would have thought it was a new movie or something. What you could do, which is very hard to do but if you contact me I could help, is overlap with blending a potion bottle, with the forest model and wolf inside of it sleaing it in the perfume container. That would look...amazing.

I can't believe no one fed back on this after 2 months..
