Before I start off the tutorial I would like to say that I am very new to sketching people. The tutorial I’m putting up today is a very rough sketch on "how to draw Frankenstein", step by step. I will give you some interesting information on this creature first. Frankenstein is not the name of the monster as most people think; it is the name of the scientist who created the monster. This creature was created and never named; instead he was referred to as “Monster” it holds a symbolism of him being parentless and how he lacks the sense of self and identity. This fictional character appeared in Mary Shelly’s novel Frankenstein. The novel would over time become a play and over time again be adopted by screenwriters and movie producers to turn Frankenstein from a book, to play, and from play to movie. Frankenstein the creature over more time became a popular scary monster for kids, especially around Halloween. Here is an easy step by step tutorial on how to draw Frankenstein with a realistic quality to him. I used a picture I found online as a guide for the sketch and the instructions. The hardest part of this drawing was giving the illusion of a big square head that was tattered and scared. When looking at the finished sketch the parts that have the black scribble is actually the shading. I like the way he came out and I proud of my creation. He really is an easy character to draw. You can also learn how to draw a cartoon Frankenstein step by step too. Peace peeps!
