13 Nights 2009 The Creature by Grimbro 13 Nights 2009 The Creature by Grimbro
13 Nights 2009 has begun!

Night one is the Creature from the Black Lagoon aka Gill Man.
This really was the 1st piece I did. There is alot going on. Mostly due to the fact that I was really trying to create brushes that gave me the look I was searching for. I wanted a brush that was a bit transparent that allowed me to lay color down but also let some of the base color come through.
True to Basil's workflow I worked from a B&W photograph as a start and build off of it with color and brush strokes.
Go here for a summary of this years 13 Nights:[link]
Hope you like it
Cheers
Grimmy

Really excellent! I love the coloring and brushwork – it reminds me of a sort-of cross between Frank Frazetta and Basil Gogos.

Wow thanks so much. That is huge praise, Frazetta and Gogos are probably the two most influential artists in my life.
Thank you
