I really liked this book, written by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden. I read it twice. That's a big deal for me. These are a couple of the characters (from left to right) Aischros, Dr. Rose, Childress, and Mr. Grey. I tried to go with a more graphic look, moving towards stronger shapes and less detail, and was really influenced by 50's animation design. Hopefully I'll paint them up as if they were 3d models. How awesome would it be to have a 3d animated movie, pushed in terms of design and content. Vampires, man eating marionettes, lake monsters, plagues, and demon bears that crawl out of soldiers all taking place during WW1. Del Toro.... dude.... get crackin'.
