Michelle Myers - Classic Horror Movie Pin-Up Series 2

I go her done in September - and was going to post it - but 'twas a month o' much ado! I got derailed focusing on "grown-up" work and moving... though not much of and excuse, but i am getting older and need my beauty rest...

The final character of this series will be a contemporary antagonist (a ghoul from one of the modern horror franchises) - i'm adhering to some form of sequence here...

so here are some of my options:
The Conjuring
Trick 'r Treat

...let's see.

Michelle Myers - Classic Horror Movie Pin-Up Series 2: sketch 'n' ink

Introducing Haddonfield's newest antagonist - Michelle Myers, of Halloween fame; the latest installment to Series 2 of my Classic Horror Movie Pin-up Girls. Just like the infamous Michael Myers, the white (well, here, marred with make-up), William Shatner mask and butcher knife are trademark accessories!
... I changed out the eyebrows on the mask to make the expression look more vaccuous (allows for a better make-up canvas - kinda like the old-school Barbie "make-up bust" from the 1970s)...

... coloring currently in progress.

FISH CARS - finished design, new name

Dear Readers,

I promise your patience and your much appreciated dedication shall be returned in due course! I have completed my initial concept sketch of the 1966 Ford F100 White Catfish (Ameiurus catus) "MER-CAR". 

Straight from Lake Oconee, Georgia comes the redesigned Mer-Ford! 

I've updated the FISH-CAR place-holder name to Mer-Car - in reference to the legendary, half human, half fish creature from myth of a bygone era...

FISH CARS - redesigning the catfish F100 ('66) for prototyping

The cross-country transition is nearing an end - yet I still have to wait until late September before I can even think of setting up my Seattle workshop... Alas, progress will be slow.

I have the original sketch - scanned and ready to go in Photoshop - set up digitally. Now, I'll redraw and add color.

I've changed up the dimensions and ratios a bit (fin size, whiskers, fenders and front end) to give the character a little more fluidity (the original was a bit rigid - looked like a car body slapped onto a fish chassis - no good)...

FISH CARS - soon to make their debut in Seattle

I've been working on a new nautical bio-mech series for 2016, with chrome and retro styling, of course... I've been plagued with a rather arduous move from Savannah (the current location of my toy company, Troublefish) to Seattle (pretty much where everyone else is) - much of what could go wrong, did (animal bite infection, finger filleting, broken stuff, cancelled car transports, extensive house re-modelling, etc...)...but, i digress.

stay tuned in for progress posts!

Pyramid Head - Classic Horror Movie Pin-Up Series 2 - progress report

Progress is being made - albeit quite slowly...

... yes, its still due to the move and single-handedly (now, literally, as i just had 15 stitches in my left hand) packing tons of stuff over the past few months (while working full-time)...

I'm finishing up the backdrop and quote shortly (it's a promise i'm sticking with!)

Check in later!
