Although this dates from last December, I had been meaning to post it. It’s a portrait of Peter Cushing as he appears in one the later Hammer Frankenstein movies. (I’m not even sure which one, offhand—anyone?)
EDIT: It’s from Dracula AD 1972. Thanks, Henry. Why didn’t I know that? I used a photo ref without looking up the source is why!!
Anyhow—was really difficult to get a nice looking scan as I don’t think the piece is entirely successful… the mixing of media—black ink, gray markers, pencil—is a bit awkward, plus some of the black areas were done with a cheap marker and aren’t at all solid (thank you, Gil Kane!). I also tried something a little more abstract in the shadowing and rendering. I think it’s an interesting experiment but doesn’t quite hit the mark.
That said, some people disagree with me and think it works quite well! Oh, it’s FOR SALE, too! Open to offers. It’s on a sheet of A3 card.
Just a couple of recent scrawls in the monstery vein.
Time for Chris’s turn as the Monster. No doubt the finishes will follow at some point!
More on portrait commissions here.
A4 portrait, ink & graphite. I shall be offering this for sale on eBay soon, unless anyone makes an offer in the meantime. I’m available for similar commissions, incidentally. E-mail me if you have any questions or requests. More soon!
Some cartoon elements of a design I’m working on that I can’t discuss just yet. Guess the theme! (Clue to The Obvious: see this earlier posting.)
Legendary director of Bride of Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, etc…
This strip has already appeared in print in The Dark Side, but this is its Web debut. The script is by Steve Green.
As you can expect ‘extras’ on here… I drew two versions of this strip and the final printed strip was a composite of the two. Below is a scan of the original artwork!
Relatively fresh off the drawing board, and done for the next, Frankenstein-themed Birmingham Horror meetup. I was unsure about it in some ways, but Steve likes it just fine, so who am I to argue?
