Frankenstein


(click image to enlarge)

It's a little late for Halloween, but hopefully you'll enjoy this shot of Frankenstein's monster anyway. Not that it means anything, but this is the first painting I've done in Photoshop CS4. I haven't noticed a whole lot of difference from CS3, other than the rotate canvas feature which is completely awesome (even though I don't think I ever used it on this particular piece).

And just because I kind of liked the way it turned out, here's a detail of the face:

Interesting your Frankestein's monster.
I like the colour palette.

Thank you Juanan!

Steve,
Nice colors. the face is creepy. :)

Are the textures in the sky brush strokes or a filter?

Steve Epting said...

Thanks David. The background textures are all from brushes (some of which had specific textures added to them when they were created). Just about the only filter I ever use is Unsharp Mask.

Yep, that close-up does have a wonderful Frazetta vibe to it. GORGEOUS painting, my friend :D

Cheers,
