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’.

Digital Painting: Franken-Strange

Glenn Strange as The Monster. Time Spent: 14 hours

Boy oh boy. Remember a year ago when I said my goal for 2017 was to get better at painting? Of course you don’t remember but I said it. I did 4 or 5 digital paintings and by March I slipped back into my comfortable style. Well I’m starting up again. One of my favorite artists has to be Basil Gogos of Famous Monsters of Filmland fame. We lost him last year, so think of this as a tribute and learning experience.

So what did I learn?

 

  1. Basil Gogos is on a whole ‘nother level.
  2.  It takes forever.
