Alex McVey: Building the Perfect Werewolf
Given the recent release of the new Undertaker’s Moon cover by horror artist Alex McVey, I thought it would be fun to take a look at the many trial-and-error steps that an illustrator goes through, taking a basic image idea from infancy to completion. In this case, Alex began with black-and-white sketches and progressed to a full-blown oil painting of the savage beast that now graces the upcoming book cover.
I hope you enjoy this look into the creative process of one of the best (if not the best) horror artists working in the industry today.
So there you have it… the finished product. The hirsute image of the perfect werewolf… courtesy of master artist, Alex McVey. And, fortunately for us all, a horrifying nightmare that will haunt us for a long time to come!
