The Werewolf of London
Sculpted in 1990 for Resin from the Grave. One of cinema’s first portrayals of an unfortunate victim of the condition, lycanthropy.
As presented in the 1935 film, actor Henry Hull had a much different make-up than the latter Lon Chaney Jr. Wolfman and I felt it was overlooked at the time I created this sculpture so it was a pleasure to bring his werewolf into the GK world.
A fairly simple cobblestone base was the setting but there is the addition of a couple blossoms of the Mariphasa plant nestled in the curb in keeping with an important element of the story.
The sculpture was primarily done in Super Sculpey and Atlas Epoxy-bond Putty with the base mostly in Fimo. I separated the sculpture into 8 parts making for easy assembly as a resin model kit.
I still like this piece for the subtle movement of the pose though I had always wanted to elaborate further on the base to add more atmosphere. Oh well!
