Horror Movie Posters: The Thing

My "Future" piece should be done later this week... alas, I've been busy. But, not busy enough to not be struck by a sudden impact of inspiration.

Horror Movie Posters

This weeks theme is "Horror Movie Posters" Go back to a time when posters weren't just shitty photoshop creations but beautiful worked on paintings. Feel free to redo an existing horror film or make one up yourself. Enjoy space cadets.

Running along with the idea that Chris posted with Future, I started playing around with the thought of a civilization on the Moon. Beta seemed like a good choice for our second home... Nothing too serious, just tried experimenting with a few things in illustrator and photoshop.

Canto- Dante's Inferno colored.

Throughout The Inferno and Purgatory, Virgil is the representation of human reason while on the other hand, Dante is an innocence that has strayed away from a true or holy way. So I thought, why not picture that innocence in the simple form of having Dante being a baby? He's completely lost in these worlds without the guidance of Virgil. On top of that, I never liked the stereotypical Hell with nothing but Red fire and brimstone. For each soul, their hell could be completely different from the next. I can easily see some parts surrounded by fire while others are very cold, dark and wet.

All of that along with a few happy accidents and I ended up with this! I really like how it came out and I'm excited to hear what you guys think about. I have an idea all ready for the Future theme and while it won't be as extravagant, I'll try to make it just as good. -Johnny

Inferno Linework

Ok, so it's taking me a bit longer than I expected- SO SUE ME! SO SUSAN ME! But I thought I'd let you guys know what I'm working on anyway so... here's at least the linework for my Dante's Inferno drawing. I'm coloring it right now- but I'm still open to ideas! Can any of you see this in a certain color palette? I'll keep you posted.

Oh, and you may be noticing that Dante is a baby... I'll give you the full description once I throw the final up. BLEEEGH.

cerberus color study

Next Week's Theme: THE FUTURE.

The year is 2010. Man has colonized the moon. The cheapest car you can buy runs on a nuclear power cell. The robot revolution has been quieted, and our mechanical servants are again just that. As you look forward to your holiday trip to the beaches of mars, you reflect on the incredible world you live in.


I didn't set out to draw Charon, he just ended up being what came out on the page. Charon is traditionally depicted as a grim reaper type; a skeleton wearing a robe of some sort. I opted for another way. My Charon was perhaps once a sailor who fell into some hard habits and bad decisions. Upon his death (most likely a knife to the gut in a tavern), he finds himself in the underworld, paying off his debt to Purgatory by transferring souls across the Styx. I imagine him as a miserly character; randomly looting odds and ends out of the very river he sails upon. He's also a bit insane about his duties; thus his initial refusal to allow Dante to board his boat on the technicality that Dante is in fact, still alive.

The Funk of Forty Thousand Years

When Animals Attack

A little dull, so I opted to just go straight from pencils to colors. Next one will have a more interesting composition and who knows, maybe even a little ink...

Dante's Inferno

Even though I haven't finish my muppet drawing- though I will this weekend- I'm going to post this week's theme so you can at least start thinking about this as well. For those who haven't posted their muppet drawing, get to it!

This week's theme is Dante's Inferno. Run with it any way you want to. As linear or as abstract as you'd like. It'll be due next weekend I guess...

Here's some images for you to look at...

Hope that strikes everyone's fancy...
