Hammer Wrap

Torn from the tomb to terrify the world, half bone, half bandage - MUMMIES!

I'd never drawn a mummy before, but I've popped that cherry 3 times... kinda glorified zombies with better table manners.

...and the glossy pouting glam among the dust and blood, the amazonic Valerie Leon.

Splendid films, splendid mag - Dick Klemensen's Little Shoppe of Horrors #24, on sale now.

A fun ish to work on-i love drawing mummies as they're all organic and rotting and gritty-no revelation of inner psychological workings there,eh?

...;o)

Loving these - my favourite Hammer films, too!

Bloody great stuff Shane. LSOH arrived yesterday - another interesting bunch of art from the *gang*. I can't believe I get to draw stuff for the mag!

'Zombies with better table manners'! Hahahaha - excellent!

Wonderful drawings, Shane. I love the second sketch the most.

Belle Dee said...

These were just wonderful! With each new issue of LSoH's I always look forward to seeing what each artist will do. And I am always 'wowed' by your submissions.

Wonderful use of the grey tones on the finished pieces. Like the new OAK2010 signature/icon too!
Lovely!!!
