The Son of Frankenstein
The work began on this model May 20th
I drilled holes into the trees
where branches will go.
Here I've put wood putty
in between the trees.
Here I used trees from my park
to create the background.
The fence I made from tree parts.
I carved the grave stones from oak.
I decided to go with my pine and tree limbs
and branches instead of making a form from
this part created.   I then put the branches into
the holes I drilled in the limbs.   Alway trying
my best to match of texture to look realistic.   I
used more wood putty to thicken up the joints
between the trunk and the branches.
To create in my backdrop of a forest I
used deep blues and greens.   Then
mainly because I love bright vibrant
colors, almost surreal and again
impressionistic I covered the bark with
reds, oranges and yellows.   I wanted this
forest to be in stark contrast to the grey
cemetery with all of greys and browns.
The finished cemetery without the backdrop or Frankie.
Here's a cool shot of Frankie hanging
on the sidelines, before he's asked to
join our scene.
And here's the combination of our
forest and cemetery.
