A Rather Morbid Reaction to Sunlight...

About a year or so ago, over at the Classic Horror Film Board, artist & actor Frank Dietz started an art challenge thread. Once a month Frank posts a topic, and anyone on the board can post their works of art, based on this topic. I decided at the beginning of 2009, I would begin taking part in this challenge, because I want to refine my skills as an artist. It is NOT a contest. It's just an exercise, for fun, and there are a lot of great artists who contribute. Now, with all that explained, I share with you my submission for February 2009.
Topic/Subject: Vincent Price.
I had originally wanted to do something that would tie in with his ghost story records, but I never got that worked out like I wanted. So I decided to go with Verden Fell from 1964's 'The Tomb of Ligeia'. This is one of my favorite Vincent Price films and I have wanted to draw up something from it, for awhile now.

Margaret/Tera

This took me longer than expected, but I finally finished it (for now anyway). It may go back to the drawing board at some point. I have trouble drawing some of my favorite Hammer stars because I want them to be perfect. Or at least perfect to me. That is probably why it will be awhile before I have an Ingrid Pitt piece to post.
So for now, here is Valerie Leon as Margaret Fuchs/Tera, from 1971's 'Blood from the Mummy's Tomb'.

Zena

'Dracula has Risen from the Grave' (1968) will always have a special place in my heart. It is the very first Hammer film I ever saw. That film started a love that has lasted over 15 years. This is Barbara Ewing as Zena the saucy barmaid.

Alice


I'm a big horror movie fan, and a big fan of the Hammer Horror films. Here is a piece I did of Linda Hayden as Alice Hargood from 1970's 'Taste the Blood of Dracula'.

Since I don't have a proper website yet, I'm going to use this here blog as a gallery of sorts. With minor commentary. This is a cover I did for Ziggy Stardust Remixed. Check it out if you haven't already.
