    _______________________________

    Mr Hyde. Most of us know of the story 'The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde' by Robert Louis Stevenson, and it has been played around with in many ways in the cinema. Mr Hyde actually being female at least once in 'Doctor Jekyll and Sister Hyde'! And reinterpreted in movies like 'Van Helsing' and the awful but visually impressive 'League of Extraordinary Gentlemen'. So taking that as a starting point, redesign Mr(!) Hyde, and if you want, include Dr Jekyll too (but that's not essential). I'm not going to give a description of the character this time, as a little bit of research should be required by anyone setting out to follow a brief. But it must be specific to the period the book was written, that is the only requirement. This means you have a lot of free rein in appearance etc, but the character must be time specific. When? Find out...

    Topic elements:

    1 = Set in the period Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde was written

    I actualy just saw the movie where Michael Caine plays the doctor and this evil side. Quite Hilarious at some parts, but Michael Caine still pulls it off. Needless to say, i'm on for this one, for sure.

    (and I've read the book, suckas)

    Great topic, I'll definitely do something for this round. Another good topic from Poshspice.

    It's interesting to note that what was considered shocking back then is a lot milder today; from what I remember, Mr Hyde only actually killed one person, and aside from that, he just drank, slept around, and caused a bit of mischief.

    Adding to that information, it should be noted that he's described as small and gollumish rather than hulkish in the book, mind you. Have fun, guys 'n' gals!

    Mr. Enfield: He is not easy to describe. There is something wrong with his appearance; something displeasing, something down-right detestable. I never saw a man I so disliked, and yet I scarce know why. He must be deformed somewhere; he gives a strong feeling of deformity, although I couldn't specify the point. He's an extraordinary looking man, and yet I really can name nothing out of the way. No, sir; I can make no hand of it; I can't describe him. And it's not want of memory; for I declare I can see him this moment.

    Dr. Lanyon: Here, at last, I had a chance of clearly seeing him. I had never set eyes on him before, so much was certain. He was small, as I have said; I was struck besides with the shocking expression of his face, with his remarkable combination of great muscular activity and great apparent debility of constitution, and--last but not least--with the odd, subjective disturbance caused by his neighbourhood. This bore some resemblance to incipient rigour, and was accompanied by a marked sinking of the pulse. At the time, I set it down to some idiosyncratic, personal distaste, and merely wondered at the acuteness of the symptoms; but I have since had reason to believe the cause to lie much deeper in the nature of man, and to turn on some nobler hinge than the principle of hatred.
    This person (who had thus, from the first moment of his entrance, struck in me what I can only, describe as a disgustful curiosity) was dressed in a fashion that would have made an ordinary person laughable; his clothes, that is to say, although they were of rich and sober fabric, were enormously too large for him in every measurement--the trousers hanging on his legs and rolled up to keep them from the ground, the waist of the coat below his haunches, and the collar sprawling wide upon his shoulders. Strange to relate, this ludicrous accoutrement was far from moving me to laughter. Rather, as there was something abnormal and misbegotten in the very essence of the creature that now faced me--something seizing, surprising and revolting -- this fresh disparity seemed but to fit in with and to reinforce it; so that to my interest in the man's nature and character, there was added a curiosity as to his origin, his life, his fortune and status in the world.



    Dr. Jekyll: Now the hand of Henry Jekyll (as you have often remarked) was professional in shape and size: it was large, firm, white and comely. But the hand which I now saw, clearly enough, in the yellow light of a mid-London morning, lying half shut on the bedclothes, was lean, corder, knuckly, of a dusky pallor and thickly shaded with a swart growth of hair. It was the hand of Edward Hyde.

    -----------------

    Notes on Spirit Photograph #68 - found in the archives of a London lawyer by the name of Mr. Gabriel John Utterson and bequeathed to the Museum of Spirituality by his grandson. According to the family, no other spirit photographs exist in the late Mr. Utterson's collection, so it was a mystery to them as to why this one was found in his personal papers after his death. (One can only deduce that the subject in question was known to him.) No other information has been gleaned from the photograph, and its subject cannot be positively identified. Researchers here at the Museum, as well as noted experts with the Institute for Spirituality in England, have determined that the person in question bears a passing resemblance to a Dr. Henry Jeykll, a friend and associate of Mr. Utterson's, but no record of him having posed for a spirit photographer exists in any extant literature of the day. More than one researcher at the Institute has concluded that the photograph, like so many others, is a fraud, and can be passed off as a photographic trick by some enterprising charlatan...

    "Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" first published in 1886.
    So the 1880s are probably "the period Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde was written" right?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1880s_in_fashion

    If anyone got better reference pictures ,please share.

    Roger Vaughan has a website with lots of great photos scanned in...but a googling of "1880's fashion" would probably do just as well; I did it earlier and came up with a bunch of stuff to sift through...

    Remember the only requirement is the period clothing, which means you have a great deal of freedom. Mr Hyde could be a new take on the theme; think outside the box! However you are completely free to follow the Stevenson description to the letter if you want. My current sketch isn't particularly original at the moment anyway!

    "Now, now Henry....

    "It alright now. Really, it is. I forgive you everything, even trying to kill the both of us. You were afraid and under ever so much stress. I know this. I know everything you know. Your hopes, your fears...Your loves and hates- I know you closer than I would know a brother, If I had one.

    "In a way one could say you are my brother. In a certain twisted logic I suppose, and I love the twisted kinds of logic the best. Take this bit for example: Your greatest fear was of losing control of me, that I'd get out and you wouldn't be able to put me back in. Well...it's happened now. This little girdle will make sure we always have a little potion in our body. So now I'll never have to go back in, and you don't have to worry about losing control anymore. You have none.

    "But don't worry 'elder brother.' I'll take good care of you. Always keep you near my heart, as it were, hehe."

    this topic sounds fun and promises quite a shitload of good quality pics.
    haven't posted anything current in ages - and in fact haven't produced anything proper either. so, oh well, here goes my wip.
    i gotta say it's good to be back. ca.org: on -> motivation: on.

    CHOW #68 - Guest Host: Poshspice. Topic: Mr. Hyde

    quite a lack of concept, huh? need to do some more reasearch on clothing and shit, it's my weakness. I could use a bit of c&c, if y'all don't mind. i'm finishing a portfolio for college and want this in.

    I like the "young" Hyde approach, Hanuka...look forward to seeing where this is going.

    Just be careful on the clothes - vests (and jackets, for that matter) button rather high at this time in fashion. Some great movies to look at for this period would be FROM HELL (set in 1888) and TOPSY TURVY (spanning 1884-5)...

    The latter is particularly good, though I know a number of people who couldn't stand it. I guess Gilbert and Sullivan operettas aren't to everyone's liking...

    Wow thats a coincidence im trying to put mine into my college portfolio too! haha.

    As for a critique, he does look a little bit purple to me, but that adds to the monstrous feel IMO. All other stuff is probably just because its a WIP. I think its coming along nicely though, keep it up!

    i took a much more literal, literary and illustrative approach, Hyde as i imagine him from the story, less a demon than a distillation of human (Jekyll's) evil, self indulgent, sybaritic, arrogant but cruel, a pure sociopath/psychopath.

    version 3 -- color, and final
