My choice for our first theme of Universal's Monsters is the big guy himself, Frankenstein's Monster. It was a tough choice though. Almost went with The Mummy. Though I did this piece in black and white, I originally was going to add color. The pencils were done to establish the values and then I would block in color with my airbrush, and detail it with paint and color pencils. This is the way I worked years ago and have wanted to do it again. Except one problem, no air brush compressor or co2 tank. Neither of which I have since moving to Florida. Oops. Still, something to be said for stark black/white and gray.
This is done in pencil, white color pencil and white acrylic paint on 11" x 14" Gray Canson Mi-Teintes board.
