GINGER SNAPS 001-Color -Version A- with lines by me and Digital Paints by the very talented and super cool
Ginger Snaps, (IMDB info [link]
) for all of you that haven't seen it, is a very dark, yet very cool/unique Werewolf horror film.
I liked this quirky movie a lot when I saw it a little while back, and thought it would be kind of fun to do a comic book/cartoon version of its movie poster/DVD cover.
Heads up for anyone out there who's lookin' to put this on their Netflix queue- If you're a bit squeamish, it's got some pretty dark humor and a lot of gore/blood, but really redeems itself with it's characters and the fact that it is anything but your run-of-the-mill horror movie.)
I'm really surprised how many people on DA have seen/liked this movie.
Vest did an amazing job of setting the mood of the piece through color and light-play to really bring it to another level.
Love the effects he added to the mountains, the moon-lit sky, the circles under Brigette's eyes, as well as Ginger's(redhead) lavender blouse fabric. Not to mention the wonderful eyeshadow, eyecolors, and lip rendering on "Were-Ginger's" face in the background.
And for all of you die-hard movie fans of this series, yes I did take several creative liberties with this comic/cartoony version, especially when it came to "Were-Ginger's" face and hair color. For her face I wanted to use some of the supernatural effects, but kept her still cute looking, so I didn't go for that old-school "Buffy Vampire" wrinkled forehead that they ended up giving her in the film.
Also I know in the movie 1/2 way through she had blonde/white streaks in the front and then later she went completely blonde/white. But I know that with all of the comic book people on DA I'd have a zillion questions as to why "Rogue" from X-Men was in the background.
So I thought it best just to keep her a redhead.
I hope you all enjoy this fun comic/cartoon version of the poster from Ginger Snaps!
