FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER by sideshowmonkey FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER by sideshowmonkey
Just a fun little piece for the greatest monster ever! I love this charcter but I noticed I've never really done a more classic version of him. Igor was fun to draw.

Crud, the Abby-Normal joke was already taken XD


My biggest quirk with the Frankenstein films is this; where on EARTH did Franky get his duds? I mean, nobody is exactly "born" with a suit already on them. ( ignore the obvious b-day suit joke >__<).

In the book he runs around in scraps, in the film he dresses up like Solomon Grundy. I'm confuddled. :eyepopping:

Nitpick alert!
The assitant in the 1931 film was called 'Fritz'. Igor didnt appear intil the third film, 'Son of Frankenstein'.
Yeah, I'm a trivia nerd r_r;

Man, so that's why I always feel bad about killing "The Creature" in Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow. I almost forgot how the book and movie versions of Frankenstein's monster were sad and lonely beings who couldn't fit in the world no matter how much they tried. I think that in the book, the only person who accepted him as a normal person was an old blind man who couldn't see the monster. But then the old man's family payed a visit to him while the monster was in the house, and drove the monster away.
But this picture reminds me why I like the monster as well, now. And it looks very well done, too!

Thanks. I was trying to get that frightening yet sympathetic feel to him. That's what I always loved about the character in the book as well as the Karloff version.

Thanks for noticing. :D

I adore your style of deforming the creatures and characters in your pictures, it looks like it's a lot of fun to draw that way! Kind of reminds me of the way the Creepshow movies had those animated comic scenes between the live action stories... Makes me want to draw more monsters in scarier, more twisted ways, too. I sure do need the practice at creepy crawly art.

HA HA! THanks! It really is a lot of fun to just twist the characters and let them get gross and see what happens.

I ended up working with the guy who did a lot of animation for those Creepshow animations. That movie had such an impact on me that I thought it was the greatest thing to meet a guy who worked on those.

Let 'um get gross, haha! I have a hard time doing that, it's gonna take much practice since I tend to do cute art. But, to be diverse with my subject matter, now that'd be fun.

Whoooa, did you? Lucky! Yaaah that would be cool, and to work with someone who has given you reasons to persevere in your art would be very much fun and an honor, as well.

ha ha. Great coloring. Nice use of the comp coloring in the shading and stuff.
The expression are the best part though. I really like Igor's mousy little face, and the way that he's holding the jar there.

Yea, thats a pet peeve of mine, although I still make the same mistake all the time. I still call him Frankenstein when I got my toys and all that but when I make it 'official' by putting up a piece of art I got to get his name right. :)

Yeah, it's cool to let slip on the odd occasion, but those people that say "who would win? A Dracula or a Frankenstein?" are the real problem! Or I don't know if it's so prominent in America, but here in Britain, a lot of people say "Draclear", and that just really grates!

It tends to be young kids that say it, but sadly where I clome from, there are some adults say it too! I have a Bram Stoker's Dracula t-shirt, and you'd be amazed at how many people look at it and go "Eee, it's Draclear! I love him!"...... you can't help but think that if they really did love Dracula, they'd get his name right!

Is it just a bad pronunciation of his name or does it have some weird meaning?
Reply
:iconuber-fiend:
Uber-Fiend Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2005
It's just pronunciation.... there's a lot of bad pronunciation in the North East of England where I live. Previous examples include "let's go to Toy Russ", "My favourite drink is Spritt", and my personal favourite "Is Star Wars the one with Dark Vader in it?"....... and they wonder why they shouldn't have cut school so much!!
