My painting of Boris Karloff Frankenstein,

I'm working on a collection of classic movie monsters and here is my first, I'm painting them all in traditional old school watercolor.

Here are some of the steps thoughout the process.








I had a lot of fun painting this one and I'm hoping the next to be more fun too, Questions and comments are welcome. Cool

I love personal swaps, I currently need art (paintings or something to hang on a wall) but I'd be up for anything.

That turned out beautifully. It almost looks like a photo.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

I had a lot of stuff to do this past week so it put me behind on starting Dracula, but for now I finally stretched it out and put some tones to start off.
