A few weeks ago I decided to put the set of aquarelle graphite pencils to the test by doing a portrait of Boris Karloff as Frankenstein’s Monster.
I really liked how it turned out. Obviously I used a photo as a reference, but I reckon the shadowing turned out rather nicely.
I received a lot of positive feedback from the piece and not long after the great Sir Christopher Lee, of Dracula fame, sadly passed away at the age of 93. Instantly I wanted to do a portrait of him in the same style. It took a lot of concentration getting the likeness as right as I could, but going by the feedback it turned out great.
Both these pieces are available as prints on my Society 6 page.
I now plan on doing portraits of other classic movie monsters but I can’t decide on whether I should do The Wolfman or The Creature From the Black Lagoon next! 🙂
