I just came across this page displaying some new Bond posters.  At first I really liked the style but after the third or fourth it seemed to me that all the Bond girls were made to look like Disney villains.  

I like the style - reminds me of the Duran Duran posters by Patrick Nagel - and the guy is great with colours and the movie themes. It's just the faces seem hard. Casino Royale is likely my fave of the group. I like what he did with On Her Majesty's Secret Service but, again, the face is a bit hard for me to want to hang it.  

What do you guys think?

Nicely done, but yeah, a bit Disney-ish.

It's kind of a weird mix, sometimes he's trying to evoke the films (MR) but other times it's clearly the novels (TSWLM). Agreed about the hard faces. Not a fan of some of the female figures either, such as Honey Ryder. Of all the covers illustrated for the novels, I very much prefer the female designs shown on the 2002 Penguin covers: http://www.pizgloria.com/books.php?publisher=PENGUIN&series=RICHIE%20FAHEY%20US%20RETRO%20SERIES

The likes of the FRWL and TLD ones I could see gracing the covers of reprints of the books.

The Skyfall one kinda looks like Bond is waxing a giant woman's ladygarden.
