Hideous Visage

This was painted for the inside cover of the latest issue of the premier Hammer mag Little Shoppe of Horrors! Throughout most of the film the creature is kept hidden until the finale when Valerie Spalding ( Jennifer Daniel) is trapped in a room with the hideous Reptile.I lifted her hairline and focused on the symmetrical facial design of the monster . If you want to impact horror on a viewer it's a good idea to choose a directly frontal shot ( which particularly works for something like this I feel). I was also torn between showing Valerie's horror stricken face and not . I chose to let the upturned hand indicate the horror so we could focus on the hideous visage.Naturally I ran across the perfect reference shot of Ms Spalding after the art was done.:)

Warrior Queen

I'm a big fan of Jeff Jones' art. He draws incredible women ( far better than I). Here's a warrior queen with a hint of  his influence I hope!
