Monstro de Frankenstein II.
Dry pastel on paper.
This is intended to be the original depiction of Frankenstein's monster, as described in Mary Shelley's novel. It's considerably different from his appearance in the classical James Whale's movies (played by Boris Karloff), an image that became the standard monster's depiction since then.
Shelley's novel gives a few descriptions of his appearance:
His yellow skin scarcely covered the work of muscles and arteries beneath; his hair was of a lustrous black, and flowing; his teeth of a pearly whiteness; but these luxuriances only formed a more horrid contrast with his watery eyes, that seemed almost the same colour as the dun white sockets in which they were set, his shrivelled complexion, and straight black lips.
Also, in the novel, it's not said that the monster was created with parts of corpses, as in the movies. The way he was created is largely left ambiguous.
