I was going through some scans of old sketches, and found a Boris Karloff I did couple of years ago. I'm expanding the sketch into a full illustration. I normally prefer to draw on paper. But since I'm sort of Frankenstein-ing this (forgive the pun), I've decided to do the whole thing digitally. . .
When it comes to painting it. I'm planning on using a wild color palette similar to the 1970's Pop-Horror Artist Basil Gogos. I've been wanting to mimic his style, for a few years now. With Halloween coming up, I now have a perfect excuse.
Until next time,

Here are a few examples of the amazing color schemes of Basil Gogos. I am not the artist, nor do I own the rights to the following pieces.
|Lon Chaney from The Phantom of the Opera|
|Bela Lugosi from Dracula|
|Lon Chaney from London After Midnight|
|Christopher Lee, from the Hammer Film's Dracula franchise|
|Ingrid Pitt from Countess Dracula|
|Frederic March from Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde|
