Vincent Price

Charles Dexter Ward, possessed by the spirit of the evil sorcerer, Joseph Curwen, from the film, THE HAUNTED PALACE (1963). Any way you conjure it, it's my latest art work up of Vincent Price. Charcoal pencils, Mars black acrylics, and some digital colorization....

Re: Vincent Price

Love Vincent Price! He was a great cook as well as an actor. I had one of his cookbooks before the splitup

No...LOL....His interests lay in exquisite fine art. Not somebody working in film and tv advertising.

Re: Vincent Price

Great portrait.
Love the intense look!!!
The drippy bottom is a fantastic touch...so cool and since it's blue not red it's not creepy. Nice shine on the drips too.

The drippy bottom is something I do now and again to offset the more realistic portraiture,,,.in horror. It's a nice cheesy effect. The "dripping" actually goes back to the novella where his ashes were mixed into the paint of a portrait or something. It's been sooooo long since I read it (THE CASE OF CHARLES DEXTER WARD by H.P. Lovecraft).

Anywho, thanks so much for the kind response, I appreciate it!!!

Re: Vincent Price

Excellent. Though I haven't seen many of his movies, he is one of reasons I named my son Vincent.

Did see a lot of him on the Hilarious House of Frightenstein lol.

Re: Vincent Price

He was in some horror flicks with Peter Lorre. Unrecognizable from his "Casablanca" days.

Oh, yes....Those American International Poe movies all through the sixties were very much gobbled up by monster kids like me. Because of very similar art direction and photography, it was hard to tell the movies based on Poe's works from others that simply used the same time periods and formats.

Price was usually the main star, backed up sometimes by "guest stars" like Lorre, Boris Karloff, and Basil Rathbone.
