No noe can do the Wolfman better than Lon Chaney jr.! Maybe Benecio Del Toro but Lon immortalized him.

And does it handle fleas, too?

Good question... I'd have to ask the Wolfman!

His hair was perfect*


Werewolves of London..."

:D I'm sure it will come as no surprise to hear that I sang that song a few times in my head when I was painting this :D

I was certain that it's part of your repertoire! ;)

I knew the guy, I think his name was Hairy Furlow and had a small hairdresser shop right next to the entrance to Howl's Moving Castle. He tragically passed away when he couldn't cough out a hairball he was nursing in his throat for some time.

:D Its a little known fact that more werewolves die from choking incidents with hairballs than do by lynch mobs or angry chicken farmers.

Loopydave's avatar

Loopydave's avatar

Thanks! I'm sure it will come as no surprise to hear that I did a fair big of singing Werewolves of london in my head while I painted this :D

Don't forget about Tom Cruise from that first highly successful Dark Universe movie series. Still waiting on the second one, I'm sure it will be out by next decade.

I was always more partial to the Michael J Fox take on the wolfman myself :D
