7pm Sunday 5th March 2017 – 7pm Saturday 11th March 2017 – Frankenstein’s Monster
For our very first #SketchOffHomework on Sunday 5th March we selected an image of Frankenstein and his monster to mark the publication of Mary Shelley’s Gothic novel nearly 200 years ago. Published anonymously on 11th March 1818, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is one of the best and earliest examples of science fiction.
Oozing theatre and intrigue, the image certainly provided a challenge with its tricky perspective, dramatic shadows and intricate detail to keep our sketchers busy for the week. As usual we were bowled away by what our sketchers produced, using a wide variety of mediums and techniques. Each entry illustrates the sketcher’s individual style and perfectly captures the sinister and spooky feel of the image. Browse a selection of the fantastic entries in the gallery below and find out who we chose as our winner!
