Legion of Frankensteins – Pencil Sketch

I draw for practice. I draw for fun. I draw because an image pops up in my imagine and hangs out there until I put some version of it on paper. For the last year or so I’ve had this “Legion of Frankensteins” phrase lurking in my head. There’s not much more to it than the words imply. Technically it would be “Legion of Frankensteinian Creatures” but we’ll ignore that for the sake of brevity.

I decided to use this image for both fun and practice. I didn’t worry about making the creatures direct portraits of any specific creations (though most of them are inspired by specific films or stories) and I decided to use the drawing as a coloring practice. Over the next few days I’ll be posting the different stages of turning this into a finished color illustration.
