Awesome, I'd like to see you do one with the little girl he killed.Where he's holding a flower and discovers life and death... well you know what I'm talking about. I love your renditions of ole' Frankie.
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!
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.
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!
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!!
