Very Cool Linda....I am so happy you called this guy the "MONSTER" and NOT Frankenstein ( the doctor). It always bugged me how SO MANY people get that wrong! Also, I honestly would not recognize this drawing as one of yours....The technique looks so different from you super smooth style!  This one is really high contrast with that 4B pencil. Still very cool with a vintage look to it.

Not really. The Doctor gets some body parts form a friend. and Creates life. Infact, the Doctor never used lighting.

It's amazing how much you make it look like a photograph, but I'm sure if you work on something (correctly) for over 40 hours, all that hard work is going to show! Lovely job!!

Thank you, I do find the more time I put in the better the outcome. Also if I am enjoying the drawing it tends to show in the finished work too. :D

I know you want to avoid ruining the look of your art, but you may want to consider a less easily removed watermark.

Excellent work as always!

I wasn't going to have a watermark at all but right before I uploaded it I put one on. I know once you post something on the net you don't have much control over it.

I was confused as to why you uploaded the photograph, and then I realized that this is a pencil drawing.

I have the photo in a book right next to me and I still can't find any differences.
