“Jed”

The Thing

This artwork is based on Jed, the poor Husky, whose fate is sealed as the first form that the alien entity takes in John Carpenter’s 80s horror / sci-fi classic, The Thing.

I decided to make it using pencil to sketch the outline on A3 paper before 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!

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

Here are the photos of my drawing and painting as used in the video.
