Hail To The King Revisited
Date Created: January, 2013
Materials: Uni-Pin Fineliners & Photoshop CS6
I originally designed this piece back in 2008 for a Kubert School assignment in humor and caricature (You can see it here) It quickly became one of my most popular DA pieces and I have subsequently always wanted to revisit it with my new style and (hopefully) better skills.
I was recommended a lot of different characters to add into this new version, but I decided to stick with the characters I originally used so as to get a good comparison with the old one. The only two new homages I did add are the tentacles coming out from under Stephen King's chair from 'The Mist', and the alien moss from the 'Creepshow' story starring the man himself; 'The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill'.
Anyway, hope you like it. If you would like to see the two versions side by side, please visit my Facebook Page and don't forget to like it there if you like it here.
References are: Misery, It, Creepshow, Carrie, The Shining, Salem's Lot, The Mist, Cujo, Firestarter, Pet Semetary, Christine and Dream Catcher. Also there is reference to The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill - a Creepshow TV story which actually starred Stephen King as an actor.
