London After Midnight

lam
Time Spent: 8 hours

Remember digital painting? Because I sure forgot about it. But here’s one I did the past 2 days as I make my way to becoming a better painter! Keeping with my Basil Gogos monster theme, I choose Lon Chaney’s nameless ghoul in 1927’s London After Midnight.  I had a good time painting this considering most of my time spent painting is filled with self doubt and anxiety. I think I’m definitely improving as well.

Did you know London After Midnight was destroyed in a MGM vault fire in 1965 and is lost to the ages? It also has the most valuable movie poster of all time ($478,000).

Don’t say I never taught you nothin’.

It’s been a while since I’ve drawn like this. I’ve been preoccupied with drawing comics, writing, and moving. But I love drawing people in profiles and found a great reference of Jack Nicholson from “Chinatown”. I’m not too thrilled how it turned out, but that’s because it takes some time to get back into the swing of things.
