Other Mother

Estimated reading time: 1 minutes —

Other Mother is a classic baddie created bother mothery British author Neil Gaiman in the amazing fantasy-horror novel and movie Coraline.

Using one google search for an image orientation I was drawn to drawing Other Mother because the word available was ‘button’.

I felt like I just climbed back up from a well myself so wanting to keep the creepy atmosphere alive I drew Other Mother’s jittery fingers and red nails using some basic tools of pens, highlighter and spray paint for the background.

I love Other Mother’s spider-like features with buttons sewn into her eyes and drew her wearing a Morticia Adams style costume which I don’t think she actually wears in the movie itself.

    Oooh: Cute, Adorable, Stylish, Sexy… Cold, Manipulative, Deadly… Do I run and hug her? Or do I run and hide? Oh my! I’m so conflicted… but… but…

    Oooooooh funny Vanessa. Yes, you should run and hug her and if you want to stay you will have to have buttons sewn into your eyes but you get to choose the colour 😀
