"After Midnight" my rendition of Lon Cheney's character in
the lost film "London After Midnight". I say "lost" because
that's what it is. No known copy exists. There are only small
clips, stills and posters as evidence that it ever existed.
Here's the rough sketch...
This'll be a gif with the main character standing in the fog
mysterious and eerie. Which I felt would be a perfect spot to
try a version of a Basil Wolverton type uneven grey background
...this illustration of his is what I mean...
I don't know how large he drew, but I know how thick my brush
strokes are, how long I can sustain a brush stroke and what a
scanner is capable of picking up. So, I made the background
layer roughly 9x7 inches. Which is a hell of a lot of brush
As I look at it now....I am asking myself why I didn't just
think to do a half of a page of them and copy and paste. shm.
Let's just tell ourselves that somehow the subconscious of the
viewer would notice.
Anyways...I was bright enough to just recreated several
layers of it on the computer, instead of doing it three times. I
at least figured that out.
Then I drew the character and different versions of moving
and....the finished work will be at this link...and there
will only be 5 of these NFTs available.
