Universal Monsters: Dracula's Daughter

I keep telling myself--and everyone else--that I won't do any more of these Universal Monster posters, since I don't want to overdo it and there simply aren't any of those classic monster films left that really energize me creatively.

Yet I can't quite stay away from this format, since its so much fun to plug in the new elements and see what I can come up with. In between some other projects, I realized I already had two key pieces of art--Gloria Holden and Edward Van Sloan--finished (from the Holden Monster PSA poster and the Universal Dracula poster, respectively), so a Dracula's Daughter poster would be almost pure effortless fun.

In the end, I don't think this one quite matches up, quality-wise, to the others in the series, but since neither does the movie, so it all kind of fits.

I like it!

And an idea for other posters: Maybe do some of the modern villains (Michael, Jason, Freddy) in an old-movie poster style?

Just an idea.

I don't have the same attachment (or any, really) to the modern monsters like Jason and Freddy, but the idea of trying different characters from other films eras is a neat idea!

Hey, if I throw enough out there, occasionally one will be a hit!
