Dr. Frankenstein's Guitar by 

If Dr. Frankenstein had a guitar….

This is my entry for the Music Machines Redbubble challenge.

I built this guy using a Gibson SG guitar as my base, then used Frankenstein and cartoon monsters in general as inspiration to construct it. I really wanted to push myself for this challenge, and i think i have done that. This is my first real foray into this sort of illustration, so hopefully you think i’ve done a good job.

Please zoom in for a better look at the details. Feedback would be greatly appreciated, anything that will help the design in the comp I will try and incorporate before entries close.

Some details to note:
> His eyes are made up by the volume/tone knobs.
> His nose is made up by the pick up switch, but instead of it reading ‘Lead and Rhythm’, it reads ‘Crush and Kill’.
> His mouth is made up by a pick up.
> His angry eye brow is made up by the bridge.
> His ‘Frankenstein neck bolt’ things are made up by tuning pegs.
> His arms and mace thing are parts of the guitar neck.
> And his skull bag is made up by guitar strings.

Hope you like it!

    This is a freaking masterpiece Ayarti. My only suggestion would be to add a shadow for a bit of gravitas .

  • You’re too kind :)
