They are available here - Bela Lugosi White Zombie Sketch Art Cards

Cerberus The 3 Headed Hell Hound Re-Drawing

 A few years ago I drew a couple of drawings trying to work out the Cerberus Hellhound and was quite happy with the results at the time, see post here - Drawing Cerberus Hellhound

Over time though, my artwork and style has evolved and become something better and so I thought I would re-draw that creature and see what it would look like or see if I could improve upon it. Could it be reworked or was it just a stroke of luck how I actually drew an artwork that just seemed to work out in composition.

Here are the two work in progress scans I did, the first one was the initial line drawing before all of the inked details added in the second one. I kept the overall composition, but just went overboard on the ink pen details and made the creature a rotten looking hellish version, much like the skin had been ripped off to reveal the flesh.

How To Draw A Cthulhu Shoggoth Creature

How to draw a shoggoth creature which is from the Cthulhu mythos of HP Lovecraft and the very idea behind these creatures is very inspirational and leaves lots of room for your imagination to take over when you sketch and draw these creatures.

In the video below I have a really great technique of finding the creature in the form of a paint sketch which lays down basic paint thinned down with water or thinned down drawing ink, it doesn't matter and then when that dries you start to ink details within the shapes you sketched with a brush and with the shapes as a basic guide you are able to follow along and create a really great creature drawing by filling in the gaps.

Split Demon Head Ink Drawing Work In Progress

 Working on a couple of split Demon head artworks, currently a work in progress for the ink drawings, but I am sort of obsessed at drawing combined heads, like skulls and other horror creatures and making them look cool.

Demonic Horror Black And White Artwork - A Work In Progress

One of many black and white artworks I'm working on. I originally drew this as a line drawing for a colouring page, once I'd scanned that in I decided to work on it a bit more fleshing out the details with ink hatching and other ink splatter techniques.

Paint Sketching Something From A Nightmare Dream

 As the title of the video suggests I do forget to make simple and quick videos or posts like this that break down a process of paint sketching.

So here is a quick video that breaks down how I achieved this simple paint sketch based on a nightmare I had about weird Lovecraftian creatures, I think the Purple of the design really made it vivid in my minds eye.

It's a very short video and hopefully it shows and inspires you to create something similar with whatever you'd like to have a go at painting.

Zombie Flesh Eaters Horror Ink Artwork Commissions

Here are a couple of Zombie Flesh Eaters ink drawing commissions I did in 2020. I really love the old Italian horror movies as I grew up in that era of the 80's when these films came out and most of them were banned and classed as video nasties.

I'll be doing more horror homage artworks this year.
