This silverpoint drawing shows Boris Karloff in his famous role as the Creature from the film Frankenstein. James Whale directed the 1931 Universal Picture production.
I have always had a love for the old universal horror movies since I was a child. Around the age of nine or ten I drew my first Karloff creature. For this drawing I used the silverpoint technique to draw the image on gessoed Watercolour paper. For the finished piece I like to achieve the colouring with a watercolour wash.
