The Two Jacks…

Forget it, Jack… it’s Halloweentown!” — Nobody Ever

Two Jacks

Back to the literal drawing board for this Tim Burton Nightmare Before Christmas inspired illustration… pencils first, then markers. I even colored with markers this time, instead of the colored pencils that I usually use. The scan doesn’t show the orange as orange as the real drawing. Also, there are yellow highlights on the pumpkin that aren’t as obvious here.

Jack Skellington really should be a bit taller, but I chose my paper poorly and had to squish him a bit to fit him on the page next to the Jack O’Lantern. Another example of a drawing where, if I were rendering digitally, I would be able to more easily make the adjustment and stretch him to look properly lanky!

The Creature!

I have fond memories of the Creature from the Black Lagoon. Of all the classic Universal Pictures monster movies, he was the one they created, as opposed to adapting stories from literature. There was also that haunting DA-NA-NAAAA music that played every time the Creature was about to appear…

I’ve been in the spirit a bit this year and trying to top my Halloween-themed output from last year. This time last year I was still new to blogging and not sure exactly what I wanted to do with my blog. I’m in more of a comfort zone now, so I can put more time into ideas and the actual artwork too!

Please let me know what you think of this one, and remember, if you are interested in requesting my services as an Illustrator, please use the Contact page and let me know as much as you can about your request.

Elsa Lanchester as the Bride of Frankenstein

My monster was feeling a bit lonely, so it seemed only fitting to draw him his bride as well. She is not quite so monstrous, but still intimidating all the same.

Bride of Frankenstein

I’m much more familiar with Elsa Lanchester in later roles, so I keep forgetting her alongside Boris Karloff in the Universal Pictures classic, Bride of Frankenstein. As I was drawing this picture, it struck me that there’s a bit of a resemblance between her and Anne Hathaway. It might not completely come through in my illustration, but check photographs of young Elsa and see if I’m right or just going insane.

Boris Karloff as Frankenstein’s Monster

Earlier in the week I posted a funny that I had created earlier this month. Before I could create that funny bit, I had to draw a proper monstrous bit. The time of the season and all, it seems appropriate for Frankenstein’s Monster to be lurking around, no?

Frankenstein

This is how you get ahead in art… by drawing one! 😉 This illustration is very much inspired by Boris Karloff’s portrayal in the classic Universal Pictures movies. The look is so iconic that it’s really hard to separate Karloff from the monster at this point. More Halloween-themed fun coming soon!
