After re-reading the book and considering some comments, I decided to redo the movie poster. And I must say that I'm MUCH more pleased with the end product. I think I'll save the more stark look for the poster for Kushiel's Avatar.
One of the main things that I reconsidered was my casting. I was pretty much set on Eva Green as Phedre but reconsidered Anglina Jolie as Melisande. I started to think of putting in someone like Monica Bellucci, but I realized that for this role, you'd need someone who was more than a beautiful woman. You needed someone who could really be walking, talking, sex-incarnate. And Jolie really could BE Melisande.
Also, I reconsidered my original choice of Joscelin. I originally though of Brad Pitt, but I realized that I was thinking of early 90s Pitt and not how he is now. I think that Meyers would fill the role rather well. And I was amazed at how easy it was to find blonde hair to transfer to Meyers (I know it's supposed to be braided, but give me a break..)
I like how the background turned out. I think that the red haze is a good denotation for how the book describes what Phedre goes through whenever she is feeling pain.
Now, as soon as I finish Kushiel's Chosen (give me a break, I'm a slow reader!) I'll get to work on that. I already have a layout in mind and the PERFECT person to play Kazan.
Oh, and the casting breaks down to this:
Eva Green - Phedre no Delaunay
Angelina Jolie - Melisande Shahrizai
Ralph Fiennes - Anafiel Delaunay
John Rhys-Meyers - Joscelin Verreuil
Adrian Grenier - Hyacinthe
Jared Leto - Alcuin no Delaunay
Scarlett Johansson - Ysandre de la Courcel
Karl Urban - Drustan mab Necthana
Vladimir Kulich - Waldemar Selig
