Illustrated Horror

There's nothing like the illustrated image of horror. It somehow stirs the imagination with excitement and adventure. I've always been attracted to bad films with great names, The Horrors of Spider Island, Zombies of the Underworld, Caverns of the Undead. The graphics and imagery that were used to promote them were extremely exciting, usually painted, and suggested a story far more interesting then the one they were selling.

Acrylic Head Study


This image isn't exactly new but when I saw it again, it reminded me of  the recent sketchbook drawings I've been doing.  This character was done in acrylic on board but I used a similar approach to the pen and ink style drawings in which value is achieved by creating layers of transparent tone and color.
