In The Graveyard

This post will be about the newest drawing I've done. I wanted to get back into doing some monster related stuff, so I went back to my old favorite Frankenstein Monster and added the bride into the mix. I'm hoping to turn this one into a painting so I want to do some blog posts just like the ones I did for A Very Merry Unbirthday.

This is the original sketch where I try to cram in as many of my favorite monster movie images in to one drawing. I put in Frank and the Bride surrounded by spooky trees, gravestones, an old castle, a full moon and lots of thistles.

For the actual sketch I changed around a few things from the original sketch. I changed Frankie's outfit from his original blazer to the furry vest from Son of Frankenstein. I got rid of the thistle bushes at the front of the image. I put the haunted castle on a much more precarious looking hill and added a lantern to be a second light source.

Then the easy part, adding the flat colors in photoshop.

Then the fun part, finishing the colors in photoshop.

I'm very happy with how it all turned out, the next step will now be to get a canvas and start turning it into a painting.
