Evil Ed

Last weeks topic on Art Jumble was 'Evil', so with the movie 'Fright Night' on the brain, I decided that I would draw the character 'Evil Ed'. While I'm not usually a big fan of remakes, there are occasionally some good ones. I've actually been looking forward to the new 'Fright Night' and it has had fairly positive reviews from what I've seen. So I will be going to see it, possibly this Monday. And funny enough, I will be going to see it in the same theater that I saw the original in, back in 1985. Scary.
My concept behind this piece was to do it in the style of a sticker from the 80's. I'm pretty sure it translates as such. :)

1940's Vampirella Cover Retake

Okay, let me just vent for a sec here. Originally this post was suppose to be a step by step type deal, where I take you all through the process and try to give a quick lesson in Illustrator. I had a big long post, with some 30 odd pictures to illustrate. I wrote it all out in June and attached the pics. But for whatever reason, the pics were really small and when you clicked on them, they didn't enlarge. Getting that post ready took me a long time so naturally, I was pretty angry. All that work, and I was going to have to go back and re-do all 30 pics. So now it's August, and I thought I should finish that up, re-do the photos. So I did, and it STILL didn't work. Photos were bigger, but you couldn't click on to enlarge. So I'm VERY ANNOYED right now.

This is my version of a Vampirella cover, with a 1940's Belle Dee style Vampi. Maybe some time I'll try the tutorial again.
