Working on that new, new.
A reverse look at my sketch I’m doing for reward fulfillment on the Pablo the Gorilla Kickstarter.
This was my submitted piece for the SDCC Souvenir book’s Frankenstein tribute. Wish me luck!
This is due today. I finished but I wanted to show you the process first. Time to go submit.
So, yeah, started painting this in.
Blocked out the background.
So, chandelier drawn in instead of just blocked out now.
So I’m heading to the point of no return on decision making here. I really enjoy working in black and white, using gray tones, but at the same time I feel like digitally painting this picture in a Romantic society style will add to the feel of the Regency Era in which I’m depicting these characters and the time period Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein in.
You can tell by the chandelier that I blocked out that I haven’t yet made up my mind whether to paint fully or continue with this comic book style. Decisions, decisions.
Started inking this one in.
So, I find that sharing with you guys is like workshopping an idea. For this one, I didn’t want to copy the famous Boris Karloff Universal Pictures Frankenstein creature or Bride of Frankenstein exactly. I did want to acknowledge it and pay homage, while tipping the hat to the nineteenth century that he was created in. Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein in 1818 and Comic-Con is paying tribute to the book’s bicentennial.
