Here's the final design. This is 100% pencil drawn, scanned, and then made to look like chalk on blackboard. I made the blackboard using photographs of various textures and some art brushes. I layered the artwork on top of it using the scans and inverted the colors.
I am really happy with how realistic the chalkboard effect came out. I'll post a photo of the actual poster when I get a chance to head up there and see it for myself.
Oh, one note! REMEMBER TO CHECK YOUR SPELLING WHEN HAND LETTERING!! If you notice, I spelled "Millwrights" incorrectly. Luckily i caught it and just redrew that part and placed the correctly spelled version in there. I was amazed that I caught the error before the client did, as they had seen and approved this design with the incorrect spelling. Just goes to show - never trust that the client looked over everything carefully. #oops
