And I’ll be in Wales! But it reminds me, speaking of dog pics, that last year we did a very cute picture of Ms Tikki for Halloween and it wasn’t posted here. Maybe we’ll do another spooky* one this year too, but meanwhile here is the wonder of last year’s pic…
A re-upload to the Vamporama Films channel (please subscribe!) of a video I had on my own channel years ago… with a bit of colour-fixing (artefacts) and improved sound sync… it still looks like hell, but it’s very rare, so what the hey. Lon appeared on You Asked For It in August 1951.
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!!
A Deal With Death is a short film that homages the old Amicus anthology flicks. I posted a character sketch for it some months ago.
Here’s a page from the script.
Well, seeing as how a rather diminutive version of the Great One has appeared in some of my art (such as the previous post!)—I thought I ought to try and do a pic of Cthulhu where he looks a bit more awesome… a bit more like he might just be standing 200 feet high!
So, I’m posting the finished drawing followed by the original sketch… because while the finished piece may be a little more polished, somehow the sketch has more energy, so they’re both kinda interesting, no?
Well, in theory… as the comic is more or less an imaginary one!
In fact, this image is a reprise of a piece from 2016—see below—featuring Jenni & Marie (and friend). Although only three years old, I recently did a new version… because, it ain’t bad but it coulda been better.
Delighted to be able to announce that this documentary feature, of Steve Green interviewing cult actress Dagmar Lassander at the 2016 Festival of Fantastic Films, which I did the video editing for, will be on Arrow Video‘s forthcoming January Blu-ray release of Forbidden Photos of a Lady Above Suspicion.
So… I’ve been playing with the footage for Monsters, and I’ve done some tests on the colour grading. The raw footage has a very flat colour profile, which allows filmmakers to push the images to suit the mood or preference more comfortably. Below are two graded frame grabs and finally a look at the raw (unmatted) footage for comparison.
