Before Universal introduced Lon Chaney Jr. in the classic “Wolfman” they had a lesser known werewolf movie that came 6 years before it titled “Werewolf of London” (ah-wooooo). I watched my DVD of it last week or so and though it isn’t as good but it’s still very entertaining to watch. His first transformation into a werewolf was more clever and satisfying than Lon Chaney Jr’s.
So the past 2 nights I painted this. It was the toughest and I’m not as happy with it but it is what it is.
Pretty self explanatory. I’m trying to find unique ways of coloring instead of just coloring and shading the way things are supposed to look according to style. I thought wouldn’t it be cool if a Mexican wrestler went around and wrestled monsters in his spare time? Didn’t turn out quite the way I wanted it to. I have been drawing more for the exercise rather then creating strong work lately. And that’s okay…as long as it leads up to something strong. I know this whole “dirty scratched and rusted” look is my style but I’m wondering if I should drop it for a bit. I use it because I don’t find my line work very clean and I think it adds to my drawings. We shall see.
