The Next Monster


Here is the next Monster for the show, or not. It's the rough in stage and I'll have to wait to work on it for a few days as I work on my storyboard for Secret Saturdays and catch up with things around here. This is oil on board. I will try and do as many things for the show as I can and then pic from the best. This is based on a sketch I did the other day, in ink. I started this one by doing a drawing a bit tighter on the board, much tighter than the Frankenstien one and I think this one has better drawing as a result.

Yeah, I do like the fact that this one is a bit tight, even at this early stage, but I really like the way Frankenstein's monster goes so vague in the lower half of the painting. It's more mysterious and kind of haunting (pun intended) that way.

Thanks Kelz. Yeah I wanted to try and make it "fuzzy" nFrank. I worked in a different way there, my rough-in was really loose. that in the end cuased some issues, making me repaint stuff as I think I really wanted more structure or drawing in the painting than I had when I started. But I look at each one as a learning process and I do learn a few things each time.

The Wolfguy i think will be closer to what I intended as a result of the tighter drawing and glazing up instead of going in so thick.
