This Island Earth (1955) - Metaluna Mutant

This Island Earth (1955)
Metaluna Mutant

Another Halloween B-Movie image!

If there is one image that represented aliens to my young imagination, it is the Metaluna Mutant from This Island Earth (1955).  Every book about monsters and bug-eyed aliens -- something which I sought out regularly as a kid as anything with monsters, aliens, and/or robots was guaranteed to capture my attention -- featured the Metaluna Mutant.

Here are the inks, done with a No. 4 Round Brush and Pro-Art 4100 India Ink.

I then scanned it into Photoshop and colorized it with a MULTIPLY Layer.
