The Art of Frankenstein : Tomas Kral

Czech artist Tomas Kral was inspired to create this beautiful digital interpretation of the classic movie Monster by posters featuring Boris Karloff.

Although it’s not meant to be a faithful likeness, you can still recognize the actor in the solemn pose and the gaunt face with heavy eyelids. The artist’s preferred tools include Photoshop and the 3D sculpting and painting program ZBrush.

Kral currently serves a serves as senior CGI artist with the Prague-based visual effects company UPP. Recent work includes stints on Roland Emmerich’s 2012 and the upcoming action-adventure film Salt, starring Angelina Jolie.

You can see details and additional renderings of the Frankenstein image, and a host of other extraordinary creatures, on Tomas Kral’s website.
