Creature from the Black Lagoon

Another class I'm taking this quarter is Materials & Techniques for Sequential art. The first material our class experimented with was scratchboard. I've had a little experience with this medium before (junior high, maybe?) so I fared pretty well.

The assignment? Create a set of three scratchboard pieces that depict scenes from an old black and white horror film. I did my own take on The Creature from the Black Lagoon.




ORIGINAL CONCEPT SKETCHES:


Doodles while watching the film

Originally my creature was a diplocaulus, an prehistoric ambhibian.
The head shape did not work well.


Evolution of the creature into a piranha-type beastie 





THUMBNAILS:

Original thumbnails for the 5x7 piece

Thumbnails for the 8x10




COMPOSITION DEVELOPMENT:

My first idea for the 5x7. Decided this was too static and did not have enough texture.
Early concept for the 5x7. Once again, very static.
