The Shadow Knows...

Who knows what evil lies in the hearts of men?

The Shadow knows.

While I was in my tweens my mother had bought my father a large collectors pack of old radio dramas for Christmas. Amongst the various serials was probably one of my favorite story lines to date, "The Shadow."

Wealthy man-about-town Lamont Cranston (no. not the guy from Breaking Bad...did you know there was a band named 'lamont cranston?" Crazy.) was really, in fact, a supernatural crime fighter. Ok. So an insanely wealthy, dashing, SANE, guy who has mental abilities that allow himself to move objects and render himself invisible...essentially a rich jedi who can date without whining like a little mama's boy?? Yes please, I want to be him.

This was initially started as a submission to enter a pulp fiction based art exhibit, but deadlines with actual jobs kept me from meeting that deadline... I started it close to six months ago and finally made the time to complete it. I really, really like this one. Please Enjoy.

I vant to suck your...MONEY OUT OF YOUR WALLET!!!


That's much scarier to me than someone wanting my blood. I've got plenty of scars on my arms where phlebotavampires have stuck's not nearly as bad.

At any rate, another cover for an old classic. Dracula! The first version I produced wasn't scary enough or pale enough for the publisher so I did a revision on it...and frankly, I'm glad they requested it.

The first one looked great!...that is, until I painted the second then looked at the two side-by-side...

Now the first just looks like a goofy, retarded, not-close-to-being-scary version of the second. Kind of like the difference between Edward Cullen and an actual vampire. Ah well. such is life.
I also threw in the hands which were the same before and after. I like hands.

I could make the joke that the original is with makeup...and the second without. But I won't.

...though I kind of just did....and it was horribly cheesy. But who cares right? No one reads this crappy blog anyway! WOOHOO!! Have a great day folks!
