PEOPLE PUPPETS: A NIGHTMARE IN WAX MOVIE POSTER

A fine piece of shlock cinema from the classic days of film making
and a spiffy as hell poster that does all it possibly can to 
draw in the intended audience.

My eldest brother picked this rough one up at a local antique/flea market shop
for a darn good price and I really like it (wish I had space on a wall somewhere for it too).

I have not yet seen the film in question, but when I do, expect a review.

THE COUNTDOWN TO THE COUNTDOWN TO HALLOWEEN CONTINUES...

BLACKBRIAR vs HAWKGIRL

It's been quite a while since I've updated my blog with some of my own drawings,
so here goes what I've been up to of late:

I continued the Kubert Tribute with this ballpoint on cardboard piece which is actually two pieces
because I have yet to merge the two images into one (something I always hate).
You'll get the idea...



It's HAWKGIRL versus BLACKBRIAR THORN,
a character I love even more now that I know that Mr. Kubert co-created him!

About half-way through the image above, I really got into drawing the trees/vines that were grabbing at Hawkgirl and made some progress in understanding how to make them look the way I think they SHOULD look (see the one she's grabbing that wraps around to under her other arm for what I mean).

My first time drawing Hawkgirl my second time drawing Blackbriar Thorn.



Below are the Kubert Tribute Week images from the week before.

TOR

RAGMAN

SGT. ROCK


VIKING PRINCE


HAWKMAN

There were more characters than I could draw in a week created by Joe Kubert--some I hope to get a chance to draw again one day like Enemy Ace & Unknown Soldier to name but a few.
