Frankenstein


Update: I found some pencil sketches. No scan of the finished pencils but the larger sketch is pretty tight so it's the next best thing.

I think I drew this one around 2000 or 2001. Sorry I don't have pencil scans of this piece or the Frankenstein, Jr. drawing, but I couldn't resist posting either of them. You can never have too many Frankenstein images on your blog.

  1. Love it. I remember this piece from your first sketchbook (with different coloring).

  2. We only printed 40 of those sketchbooks so even though it's a published piece I'm assuming that most of the folks out there haven't seen it.

  4. Boy, I'm glad DC wouldn't let you, me and Bernie do that Bizarro story to go with the Batman/Grundy job. I mean, you and Bernie and a Frankenstein-inspired story? That would NEVER work...

  5. Ughh...more sadness knowing there could have been more stuff like this.

    Sweet drawing as usual. Really like how the color scheme on this enhanced the main figure. Great example of how flat coloring can really pop a drawing.

  6. I´m reading about that history on your Modern Masters right now. We need it to be published!!
    Are you listening, DC?

    Is the little change position of Frankie from the first sketch to the final drawing (not so powerfull) something you were looking for?

  7. No, I'm afraid that was an accident. I'm often frustrated when I can't keep some of the impact of the sketches when I clean things up in the finished drawing.
