31 Days of Halloween - Day 4
Today's collage portrait is the titular creature from THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD (1951) played by James Arness. The make-up was created by Lee Greenway.
I wanted to depict the Thing in a manner that wasn't based on this overly familiar publicity photo, but no real alternative pictures seem to exist, and searching for an image to grab from the movie only made me discover that you never get a clear view of the creature in the movie, which I think works to the movie's benefit.
