    Whatsup

    Heres my first take on the Monster from the Black Lagoon. I wanted to keep his cheesy rubber-costume look but at the same time make him a little more fishy. Got a long way to go (starting with learning how to color things...)

    I'll probably give it a few more arms or some folded wings- just stitching flest together and seeing what will graft
    The word ‘anarchy’ comes from the ancient Greek αναρχία in which αν meant ‘without’ and αρχία meant first a military ‘leader’ and then ‘ruler’. Anarchist society is one ‘without rulers’: a classless, non-hierarchical society.

    This time I wil tentate the egg tempera insted of watercolors. This is the inisible man, there is not much of character design, but i think the concept is important.

    Photogr@fever> try to lighten up the leg on the left and darken the shadow beneth her chest, maybe it could work better

    This is a great top. I've always loved the universal horror. I think I'm gonna use Basil Gogo's paintings as my main inspiration
    Chow 178:: Hallowe’en special: Universal monsters

    His work is amazing, he did all those old Universal Horror film painting tributes and some of the old poster work. It's either that or old Black and White paintings.

    QUESTION: Do we have to do full-figure or can we do headshots? (I apologize if this has already been asked)

    Second idea/s. Finding it quite hard to give Frankenstein a more unique appearance at the moment but I'm relatively happy with the poses for this one.

    Closet Dracula

    He's obviously a Dracula, but he'd rather people didn't know.

    Here we see him replenishing his stash at the local clinic

    Here's my idea for the Wolfman. I guess somewhat of a radical redesign (hopefully not subconsiously ripped off from something else though, I hate when that happens).

    Basically, this incarnation of the Wolfman was captured and subdued by a classified government agency. The agency then proceeds to enlist the wolfman into their service on the condition of a cure for his lycanthropy upon completion of his duty. The agency also supplies him with a cache of Lycanthropy suppressant that reduces the effects of his transformation. Essentially allowing the wolfman to experience something of a middle-state between humanity and full-on werewolf. The end result is an agent with the enhanced strength and speed and highly acute sensory perception associated with Lycanthropy, yet retaining the sentience, reasoning, and moral compass of being human.

    Dunno if I'll have time to finish/re-tool this one. But I'll throw it out there in hopes of some good advice as what I can do. (He's totally leaning to the left, so I think that's number one on my list of things to fix).

    Photogr@fever: the angle that her face is at is making that hair look off. right now it kinda looks like its going off to the side rather than the top, other than that i love it!

    You should read the rules.

    In them, it stipulates you need to show at least 3/4ths of the character, so about down to the knees.

    Early Sketches:

    I know we have to show 3/4 of the body, so I'm going to do that in another sketch, but this is my starting concept for the face.
    Chow 178:: Hallowe’en special: Universal monsters


    I've pulled from Basil Gogo's style of sketch, with many quick scatched lines. I'm going to pull from his saturated contrasting color pallette.

    So many great starts Im gonna try to help out as much as I can!

    MasterV12- Great start, love the pose. Cant wait to see where this goes.
    Photogr@fever- Coming along nicely. I cant expand more on what everyone else has already noticed.
    RMick- Its a strech and feels a little bit like 'Predator' to me. But I like that you're trying to reimagine. Excited to see where it goes.
    Danilo- I appreciate the looseness and like the look of a different style but to be honest im not entirely sure what Im looking at here. Might wanna tighten it up a bit.
    bluefooted- His face and shoulders seem akwardly placed. I see what your trying to go for, just wish I could give some advice on how to fix it. Maybe some of the anatomy masters here could figure it out.

    Anywho, Im doing wolf man, gonna try and get a pic up tommorow of a WIP. And since we have so much time this has given me an opporunity to do some canine anatomy studies!! yay!
