Oct. 21- Blacula
I love these movies. while low budget and pretty cheesy, William Marshall is amazing in the role. He’s also surprisingly sympathetic, which was nice.
This piece took a while, but was fun to do. It’s not my best of the set, but I’m still happy with it.
Oct. 20- The Crow.
I am really pleased with the shading on this one, especially with the coat. As a huge fan of this movie, I wanted to do him justice, and I think I did.
I know I posted this late. I’ll be getting today’s up in a little while.I also need to start work on tomorrow’s as I’ll be out of town in the evening.
Oct. 18- The Tarman
From Return of the Living Dead. I really like his design and went with a comic book style on it, trying to match the old EC style. I think I did a pretty good job of it. :)
Oct. 16- Sloth
Oct. 17- Count Duckula
I’m not sure how I missed posting Sloth on time, but better late than never. I got to see Goonies in the theatre again tonight, and it was as amazing as always It also shows with Monster Squad, which is great. I did Sloth in a more stark/comic style as I’d been doing the thinned ink shading a lot and wanted something different. Also, it’s quicker.
Count Duckula, for those unaware, is a great 80s cartoon about a vampire who is resurrected using ketchup instead of blood, so he becomes a vegetarian, though villagers and vampire hunters are still after him. I turned most of the rounded edges into sharp corners with the idea of it being if Johnen Vasquez made the show. I don’t think I quite nailed the concept, but it still turned out better than I could have hoped for. :)
Oct.15- Wednesday Addams.
My second Addams Family drawing, though this time based on the movie. I kept the shading really light on the face, which caused some of it to not be picked up by the camera, but over all it turned out well.
Oct. 14- Frankenstein (aka. The Creature)
This one took quite a long time, but I think it might be my best so far. I’m really happy with it.
On a side note, I realized this is the second Karloff character I’ve done this month, as the Baron Frankenstein from Mad Monster Party is not only his likeness, but he voiced him.
I’m not sure if I’ll do any more Universal Monsters for this set, but I will definitely be doing more of them in the future.
Oct. 13- Dracula
I went with the Christopher Lee version of the iconic character as that is my favorite version. I might do more later this month, or next year as I’ll probably do this again.
I actually started it with a different technique but was really unhappy with it, so I started over with the thinned ink technique, and it came out really well.
