Fan Art Field Trip: Halloween

twice now we’ve gone on safari into the often bizarre but always fascinating world of slasher film fan art (see here and here). in the near future we’ll be looking into similar artistic endeavors related to an american werewolf in london, re-animator and others… but today it’s time to look at the character for whom this site is named, my favorite of the classic slashers — halloween‘s michael myers.



KILLERS at the BEACH
by ~ inkchocobo

starting off with a bang, here’s an unsurprising homo-erotic depiction of freddy, michael and jason enjoying some time off at the beach. the artist explains that freddy is flexing, michael was about to attack him until a dolphin bonked him and jason is left alone on the shore with a flower. some questions though… why does michael have a spear? why does jason have a flower? is that really the best beach background you could find? and, perhaps most importantly… why would someone be compelled to draw this?

Lets have a closer look..

following a similar romantic theme is this rather unique idea of what a michael vs. jason film would be like. the artist explains his vision…

“michael’s burying his head into Jason’s manly boobs- er I mean pecs.

had nothing to do at my grandma’s.”



Halloween Michael Myers Mask
by ~ Nooperz

all too often the myers mask looks nonthreatening or just ‘off’ somehow (particularly after the first film). in this pencil sketch, it looks perfect.

an interpretative, emotional and strangely beautiful rendering of michael…



Ghost Attempt – Michael Myers
by ~ thedemogorgon

what’s going on here, exactly? all i can figure is michael is looking for a christmas tree while marty mcfly is having trouble getting his mom and dad together at the ‘enchantment under the sea’ dance.

isn’t this just a screenshot from the film with the default settings on the photoshop texturizer filter?

i have to admit it… that’s kinda adorable. this is one of my favorites.

Halloween
by ~ SarshelYam

a striking, simple and unique take on halloween. this is exactly the kind of thing i was hoping to find when i began looking into fan art for these posts. not and endless parade of ‘michael and jason making out,’ ‘michael as a sexy cat,’ ‘michael as a woman,’ etc..

speaking of which… here’s how the artist describes this piece.

“ahhah.. This might be a bit weird. I dunno, I have this thing about drawing male chars I love as females.. It’s not very well done, I did it on a school lesson kinda fast.”

Snickers
by ~ pennyonthericher

michael in a dress. you may be asking, “why is a drawing of michael myers in a dress titled ‘snickers’?” well, the artist explains that’s because they found the snickers super bowl commercial really funny. makes perfect sense to me.



Michael Myers Dragon
by ~ RaptorBarry

this 14 year old artist is actually really pretty good. apparently this was requested, so one can’t really blame the artist for the subject matter… but that leaves me wondering for what purpose a person requests a picture of michael myers as a blue dragon wearing a purple shirt?

you can’t make this kind of stuff up. yes, that’s michael myers as a skunk nuzzling up to a predator. the description of this piece is:

“Please… Don’t hurt me for this!!”



Trick… or Treat?
by * monroeart

did the world really need this? can’t you people just depict michael myers in a normal, healthy way — you know, like cutting up teenagers with a kitchen knife?

They say he hunts on Halloween
by * Kristehvampire

this is not only disturbing, but exemplifies really unsafe pumpkin carving technique.



JasonxMichael2 by MzMorgana
by ~ Hack-N-Slash-Club

the artist creepily critiques his own work in the description of this one…

What I like: See for yourself.
What I dislike: I don’t want michael to be feminine, and I don’t want Jason to be a perv.

Lethal Love
by ~ LasCamisasDeRayas

here we have the shape and annie wilkes (stephen king’s misery) married and expecting. john carpenter and rob reiner should hop on this idea quick…



Myers
by ~ Ztian

i know the shape doesn’t speak, but looking at this i can’t help but imagine him talking. take your fists and push on your cheeks from each side, towards your mouth so it’s all squooshy. now say ‘nom nom nom’ really loud… that’s kinda what i imagine him saying here.

Michael Ref. Sheet – UPDATE
by ~ data-7-panther-dude

sheesh… not another anatomically correct portrait of michael myers as a mixed-breed cat wearing gold earrings.

i chose this one just because the text made me laugh.

he’s come. and when he’s come… you die!

Michael vs. Elvis
by ~ evilchibiminion

one of my favorite of the ‘cute’ caricatures i’ve seen, i absolutely love how michael is depicted here in cartoon form. apparently this was drawn by request for a t-shirt, and again i’m left wondering what need someone had for this exact scenario be depicted visually. maybe something for a halloween and bubba ho-tep film festival?



Michael Myers .. I guess..
by * XxXAzucarXxX

this is what michael might look like if he showed up on the cartoon network. i like how fantastically mischievous he looks…

Rob Zombie’s Michael Myers
by ~ planedreamer

this reminds me of the scene where the guy gets nailed to the kitchen wall and michael looks at him puzzled, like he’s not quite sure why his toy stopped moving. here michael looks defeated, unsatisfied and a little sad, despite obviously having just killed. in a lot of ways, this is better than the remake that inspired it.

    Speaking of using your powers for good and not evil, not every rock in the intertube need be turned over, critically studied and then commented on. Case in point furry horror fan art, or its it horror furry fan art, or is it fans of horror that have a sexual disconnect with furriness. See now I have gone and done it: turned the rock over and commented on what I have found. Oh my god: E2L is not part of the under belly of the internet! Crap now work is going to start blocking it, my boss is going to write me up for reading it and the freaking FBI is going to start a watch list. All for fan art for furry horror lovers. or lovers that are furry horrors, or is it .. oh never mind.

    Hehe, sorry if we got you in trouble at work. What can we say? We’re in the horror business here at E02L and it’s a pretty scary business, just at the internet is, indeed, a disturbing place to be most days. But, if you, or any readers of Eo2L, get in trouble for reading any of Corey’s often depraved and morally questionable posts, you can always tell your boss (or significant other, as the case may be) that you were simply looking for my altogether wholesome post on contemporary poetry (which you can then quickly access by using our handy archive tab on the right).

  3. jon’s recent snubbing of re-animator in his favorite h.p. lovecraft film adapations has inspired yet another trip into the sometimes beautiful but oft terrifying world of artistic fandom on deviantart.com. while familiar to most hard-core horror fans,

    Well… I requested it… And it was only because she had already done a Freddy dragon (and a Jason one, too, I think) so I mentioned Michael.
