The Creature from the Black Lagoon
This was a commissioned piece, done late last year. I really have never been a big fan of the Creature, but he has plenty to make up for my indifference! I've seen a few of the films he's in, but they never really clicked with me the way the other Universal characters did. Plus he's a bear to paint! All those scales and fins... I must admit, visually he's an interesting subject, and I always say I'll never paint him again, but usually end up doing so.
