31 Days of Halloween - Day 9



















Today's Collage Portrait is Bela Lugosi as DRACULA (1931). The make-up was created by Jack Pierce. This collage is about seven years old, and compared to more recent work looks pretty shabby. At some point I'll get around to recreating this one.

I don't think it looks shabby! It's still pretty impressive.

I *love* this one! They're all amazing, actually, and I think you're probably the only person I haven't shared my opinion with. :)

The artist will always see something different than the audience I guess. I think it holds up just fine and you did an excellent job capturing Bela and Pierce's make-up job!

Man, what a truly spectacular rendering!! You've captured his face, his expression and the Bela/Dracula demeanor to a "T"! This is so vivid with all the excellent details and the coloring. I wouldn't change it at all.....seriously.
