Enough disgusting laziness! I’m back to work and back to the project that started this whole occult book thing, the NECRONOMICON from the original Evil Dead. This time I will be uploading the pages I make as soon as they are done Instead of the usual HUGE ZIP file. Please click the image below to go to my dropbox gallery where you can download them individually or all together in a ZIP. Enjoy! Download the pages HERE Lets try this dropbox gallery thing, looks quite useful for me since I don’t have to be zipping and uploading stuff and you guys can download the files as soon as its ready instead of waiting for another 666 weeks until I finish. I have about 70 pages ordered and ready to start tracing and inking, some from the original movies, others from DVD covers, some I will invent as always. I have also gathered screen-caps from the book on the new series so there’s a LOT of work still to be done I guess I’ll be posting updates once a week or so. See you later!

Today a very nice guy (with a couple very nice designs) sent me the link to this awesome deviant gallery with a rather extensive collection of pages from Evildead 2013. (I have SO much work now to complete my collection, it’s very exiting) Also… here is the actual designer of the illustrations from the movie, sooo cool: www.tanewilliams.com

Necronomicon (Evil Dead 2013) – Part 3, the wrong cover!

So… I initially was thinking on doing the actual movie cover of the book with the human skin and the staples… But, I couldn’t find a tutorial that showed a prop that looked realistic, and I had no experience with papeir mache o other technique that might produce something decent… so then I thought I might do the original necronomicon face… But again, no idea how to make it look decent… So fuck it, I knew resin casting.. and i like skulls, so whatever, I just got some actual leather and I sculpted a nice skull to put in the middle… the mold…   A little test of the mold with some leftover resin… And the final book:

Necronomicon (Evil Dead 2013) – Part 3, the text block

Wasn’t really sure about what to put as end pages around the normal paper pages so I just grabbed some black construction paper and put it there. I bet there are better options… Placed it between couple pieces of wood so serve as a book press. C-claps to complete the home-made book press. I saw on some tutorial that the perfect binding needs some texture added to the pages in the back so the glue sticks better. I added some grooves so the blue has even better place to stick. Some twine and contact cement… And done In the end the grooves/twine were not such a good idea, the pages don’t quite open properly. So don’t do that. Live and learn… To finish the text block I took some random strips of fabric for the book marks.

Necronomicon (Evil Dead 2013) – Part 1, drawing the pages

To start with, I searched a couple hours around the internet to see if there was some pdf or something like that with the pages of the book from the movie but I couldn’t find it. There is probably some good scan or something but since I quite like drawing and needed some extra practice I just downloaded the movie and very patiently paused all over the film and took screenshots wherever the book is shown open so trace the drawings. Some looked ok and were easy to copy… Some not so much, there were too much closeups… Obviamente tuve que inventarme todas las partes de las ilustraciones que estaban fuera del la escena como la cabra aquí: Or burny zombie over here:x Did the same for all the pages with ilustrations (all done in photoshop): (You can download the page over HERE) (And the fonts over HERE)
