FrankN'Con by Chuckdee FrankN'Con by Chuckdee
... just did this for a good friend back in El Paso TX. and a Horror convention there he helps organize.... The show's name is well: FrankN'Con, so I knew I had to do a Frankenstein, BUT since my friend Joe has usually rocked a Pompadour since pretty much high-school, I thought I'd make this a 'Greaser Frankenstein' in Joe's honor ...I know there's a story there somewhere! heheh.

... colorwise, I wanted it to be a very obvious riff on Basil Gogo's crazy palette, I also wanted to do something that felt a bit more 'painterly', so I was happy with the way it turned out! :)

and thank you Mr Wilkins for your 'soundboardingness'... and yes, that's a word!

This kicks ass.

The image is so good I think it deserves even better typography in the title.

I reeeealy like this piece... did you paint this straight up or work (as with mega man) from lines? very slick. classical like a lino cut but painterly as you said.

thank you very much, glad you dig it! :) ....this was more of a tonal piece from the get-go, so in a way, I treated it more like 'sculpting' than a line drawing... although coloring a line-drawing pretty much is sculpting, so now I just confused myself! :)

... very similar techniques, just a different way of defining the 'finishes'.

next year the theme will be apocalyptic Luchadores from planet X, bringing pain and delicious sweet breads of death.
