Another old sketchbook page I reworked adding color...
I've always felt people see the Creature from the Black Lagoon as a B list old Universal movie monster. Dracula, Frankenstein's monster and the Wolfman are the classic A list, but the Creature and the Mummy are often seen as just part of their entourage.
The Creature has 4 major things going for him...
1- He was a trilogy of films with a continued storyline. Just like many of today's movies.
2- He was originally shot in 3-D helping to create the popular '50s gimmick. It's making a big comeback now.
3- His third movie has a creepy storyline hinting at mutant DNA ala modern movies. I may be reading into it too much though.
4- He's fun to draw in your sketchbook. You'll have a blast using him as a subject.
