Sketch Dump: The Wolfman

Wolfman
Time spent: A little over 3 hours

Ballpoint monster sketch numero 4! It’s my childhood favorite: The Wolfman! For reference I “frankensteined” (heh) an image of his head from a publicity shot from the first film and his hands from Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein. I feel like the quality is dipping ever since I drew the Frankenstein Monster. So I assume that was just magic in a bottle for me. But I still enjoy doing these.

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’.

Wolfman By Night!

Time Spent: 8 hours

Didn’t turn out quite the way I liked. But it’s more about getting the experience than anything.
