Frankenstein

Justin Cook and Mike Giblin are two amazing artists who are starting a new website for character design called Toon Weekly http://www.toonweekly.com/ . The site will feature news and articles well as weekly character design challenges. Their first challenge was Frankenstein. I wanted to get away from the normal flat-top, green-skinned, bolts-in-the-neck variety monster. I thought maybe Dr. Frankenstein, like many scientists tested his theories out on lab rats, producing something like this.
I'm still a few challenges behind, so keep checking in to make sure I'm getting caught up.

This is so cool, Kenny. I really love the idea on using animal parts, really freaky. I love the antlers, and especially the octopus tentacle and the duck foot on the opposite side, really mad design.

It's ALIVE....and furry?!?

Really cool, Dr. Frank would be proud to call this his Monster!

This blows the old fashion Frankenstein out of the water! Great one Kenny!

Great to have you on board Kenny, I'm a massive fan of your work and can't wait to see what you come up with week on week! (and by the way, this Frankenstein entry is freakin' hilarious. Love it.)

The duck foot is funny. I used to draw weird animal conglomerations when I was little..except they didn't have the creepy stitches! Pretty cool take on the whole Frankenstein thing.
