Frank Frankenstein got a face only a mother could love… too bad Frankenestein’s Monster never had a mother, I guess!
Here’s a detail of Michael Shelfer’s pencils for our Frankenstein project: he put a split and too-tight scar above the upper right lip. I love how this plays. Of course, scars are integral to Frankenstein’s Monster—but this permanent sneer gives a lot of personality. It also moves well with his all his expressions—adding awkwardness and anger and most of all something mean-spirited, whether the wearer intends it or not. It’s a little design that brings a lot to the character.
