Creation of Frankenstein, Part 4!

I’ve decided to take a break from my Marvel projects and work on the Frankenstein piece last night. I can’t believe it’s been 3 weeks since I’ve touched this piece.

As you can see, I’ve started working on the curtains and the bed post. I was going to add elaborate design on the curtains, but decided against it. The curtain patterns will compete with the wallpaper patterns on the left side. Also by keeping the curtains rather dark and simple, they will act as a framing device and let the eyes focus on the lady’s dress and figure.

The arm on Frankenstein still bothered me so I’ve reworked it. I’m still not happy with it. I’ll most likely change it again.

More next week.
