Paintblogging: Frankenstein Vs the Sludge Monster

I'm gonna try my hand at paintblogging again. I love the old monsters so I'm gonna go with
Frankenstein again.. Thought it would be fun to have him in a scrap so I worked out this
Sludge Monster character. He can take a solid form but for the most part he is just a big

In the orginal sketch I was going to have them in an old castle with plenty of windows. But
I was just having a hell of a time getting the back wall and window right, so I changed it
to be crumbling ruins. I think it looks better that way.

Got the flat colors laid. As you can see I'm gonna go with a bluish green scheme.  I Tried
to make the sludge monster look like pea soup.

And this is it with the shading done.  I added a lightning bolt to the back to mix it up a little. I usually add a full moon to whatever outdoor scenes I do, thought this would be a nice change. I'm gonna transfer this to a canvas soon. Hope to have some more updates before too long.
