Drawing the Freaks



I liked American Horror Story: Freak Show. Some really bad scenes but there was a lot to like, it should have been eight episodes instead of the laborious 12 and the ending, why build up strong characters (like Paul) to have them turned off in and instant? It was good to see different body types on screen, and leading role's for older women too. All the seasons of American Horror Story have been difficult to watch, yet they all contain sparks of originality which don't quite fit a 90 minute movie or enough to pad out 13 episodes. As always worth watching for performances from Frances Conroy and Jessica Lange. Anyway it stirred me enough to do a quick drawing while watching the last episode.


Original blue pencil sketch.

Inked using an Artline Calligraphy Pen 2.0 because that's what I like using at the moment.

Watercolour and blue pencil added over the top. I then scanned this into Photoshop.

Colours adjusted and textures added in Photoshop


A couple of close up details..

Showing the finer texture details.
