For the third week in Inktober 2017, I continued making new 2.5×3.5-in. sketch cards. Check out the Troy Library Mini-Con, Week One, and Week Two posts to see all of the previous work I’ve done so for this year for Inktober. Also remember to visit the Inktober Web site to learn more about the concept.
Inktober Week Three:
This was another fun week. Pinhead (from Hellraiser) and Pennywise (from IT) might be my favorites this week… but I like pretty much all of them. I grew up on the classic Universal Monsters, so it was fun to do Frankenstein’s Monster, his bride, and the Creature… and then rounding out the week with Chucky (from Child’s Play) and the Tall Man (from Phantasm) made for a nice week of all horror-themed Inktober sketch cards. So far I’ve done a lot more horror cards this year than I did last year, which seems appropriate as we creep closer to Halloween! 🙂

My monster was feeling a bit lonely, so it seemed only fitting to draw him his bride as well. She is not quite so monstrous, but still intimidating all the same.
I’m much more familiar with Elsa Lanchester in later roles, so I keep forgetting her alongside Boris Karloff in the Universal Pictures classic, Bride of Frankenstein. As I was drawing this picture, it struck me that there’s a bit of a resemblance between her and Anne Hathaway. It might not completely come through in my illustration, but check photographs of young Elsa and see if I’m right or just going insane.

So, last week I had an idea for something I thought would be funny. It’s a Christmas and Halloween Marvel Mash-Up, featuring Frankenstein’s Monster and Spider-Man!
Once again I was surprised to not be able to find another version of this already existing online. I can’t believe I’m the first or only one to think of this glorious pun, but I might be the first to get it online… If you want to have additional Christmas fun with this one… you can imagine him muttering “myyrrrrhhhh!” 🙂
