Dexter: Episode 6 "Do The Wrong Thing" Season 7



Dexter continues to investigate Hannah McKay as he is convinced of her guilt. Hannah walks in while he is in her nursery, searching for evidence supporting his theory - and thereby confirming her guilt. On being confronted by her he makes up a lie that he wants to ask her out on a date. She agrees to go out with him. Dexter and Hannah go to a closed Christmas themed amusement park, where it turns out Dexter has set up a kill room. He prepares to kill Hannah, but cannot go through with it and releases her. They end up having sex in the kill room instead. 


Instead of focusing on all of the main characters and storylines I am going to illustrate the elements that surround Dexter and Hannah McKay. 

Hannah runs a flower shop, thus flowers are a re-occurring element in this episode. Dexter also finds out in this episode that Hannah grows Aconite, a poisonous purple flower, which he suspects Hannah uses to kill her victims. In this episode Dexter goes over to her nursery pretending to buy a plant. He picks a white orchid. Later on Hannah shows up at Dexter's door with a spotted orchid claiming he picked out the wrong one. The spotted orchid is a reference to Dexter's daytime job as a blood splatter analyst. 

For my poster I am thinking of illustrating the spotted orchid on its own or combining elements in a collage format. These elements would include different types of flowers portrayed in the episode, Dexter, Hannah and possibly scenes from the Christmas themed amusement park. 

In my sketching process, it helps me to pull swipe from the Internet and create a quick frame in Photoshop to help me guide my process. I am still playing around with the final format. Here are some samples of what I have come up with so far:

This is the final layout for my poster. I will illustrate Hannah and the flowers and play around with the elements within the watercolor background. I want to stick with this color palette for the final poster. I might illustrate Dexter as well and fit him in the composition.
