BUILDING THE FRANKENSTEIN MONSTER Part IV
Searching for a base to build my Frankenstein monster's head on I came across the amazing work of Darell Vidaurri whose work is evocative of the great 60s style cartoon monsters featured in comic books of the time.
I was particularly enamored of his Melting Man, Teen Wolf, Caveman and of course FRANK.
His version was retro while at the same time capturing the likeness of Glenn Strange as the Monster. The downside to using his version for my creature is that it wouldn't involve any repainting since I think his work is stellar.
Still, there's nothing saying I can't have a monster with changeable heads.
