Spitting Image: Wind Blows… Fire Burns… Water Falls

3

I remember the first time I saw Milla Jovovich. It was the early 90’s and I was watching Dazed and Confused. She played Pickford’s girlfriend… the quiet, artsy hippie chic who made the awesome Kiss props seen through out the film. michelleI also always thought it was interesting how she didn’t even need a speaking role and yet her character was so memorable she made the cover of the VHS and left an impression in our minds. It wasn’t long after that I had learned she had been model since she was a little girl. Go figure right? I mean.. why wouldn’t someone who looked like THAT not be a model!

The movie The Fifth Element came out and even though her speaking role was pretty much in a language all it’s own.. I still loved everything about it and her role as LeeLoo. She then eventually went on to be zombie ass kicking Alice in Resident Evil. A role I can now not imagine anyone else playing.

For many years now I have wanted to draw Milla as LeeLoo. There was just something about that character I loved most over all the others she has portrayed. The wait is now over and another portrait has been checked off my bucket list.

I call this one “Wind Blows… Fire Burns…Water Falls”

It was done in pencil, Prisma colored pencils and a touch of charcoal. If you are a SciFi, Milla or LeeLoo fan you can own a print of this piece! They are now available in my Etsy Shop. Visit the Spitting Image page of my portfolio website where you can see more portraits like this one, as well as examples of custom commission pieces I have done for clients.

Spitting Image: Hell Has No Fury

4

Part of my Portrait Bucket List has always been to do something inspired by Hellraiser. As horror geeks, my husband and I sometimes have Hellraiser movie marathons and have even had the honor of meeting both both Doug Bradley and Ashley Laurence (both really incredible, down to earth people. If you get the chance to meet them at a con I highly recommend you don’t miss out on the opportunity!).

Despite being such a fan, the only piece of art inspired by the film that I have done was a custom Pinhead barrette that I made for a client. I will say though.. it came out pretty killer and the client loved it. To this day I still half tempted to make one for myself!

So needless to say, when I saw that Clive Barker himself was calling out to artists to submit their work for an upcoming Hellraiser Anthology book I jumped on it. It being a contest I wanted to do something different then the usual expected Pin Head portrait. I also wanted to incorporate my love of woman in horror and my signature split faces that I love to do. Now you would think I would’ve went with drawing Ashley as Kirsty but the thing is I have always wanted to draw a Cenobite. And what better Cenobite to draw then the Demon Princess turned Cenobite herself… Angelique (played by Valentina Vargas).

So as Pinhead would say, “I have such sights to show you”.

Here is my piece I call “Hell Has No Fury”…………

I have entered it into the contest and I will say, even if I don’t win anything I am just excited to know that  Clive Barker, king of dark art himself may actually see a piece of my work and that makes my creepy little heart heart skip a beat!

If you are a Hellraiser fan as well, you can purchase prints of this piece in my Etsy shop! And if you want to see more of my portrait work, head on over to the Spitting Image page of my portfolio site!
