It was mentioned in casual conversation that a certain someone liked a picture on Instagram that was based on John Carpenter’s 80s horror classic, The Thing.

Me being me… I decided to get on it and make it using pencil to sketch the outline on A3 paper and colouring the artwork using a mixture of watercolour paints. It took about an hour to draw the original sketch and a further two hours to complete the colouring!

The artwork is based on the poor Husky whose fate is sealed as the first form that the alien entity takes in the film.

Here’s a short video tracking the progress of the artwork set to Ennio Morricone’s The Thing theme!

 

And here are the photos of my drawing and painting as used in the video!!

Here’s the final artwork:

Til’ next time!
