Sum of His Parts: It's ALIVE! by kalessaradan
Pastels and colored pencils
Completed middle January, 2007, this illustration will be featured as a cover for an upcoming issue of Apex Digest. It is an illustration for a Kevin J. Anderson story titled "Sum of His Parts." This is a retelling of the Frankenstein story, not just the story of the creation, but the stories of the history of the parts of the creation. A great take on Frankenstein.
This is the moment of the creation's birth, the strike of lightning that sends life into the monster's body. The sleepy village sits down below, unaware of the monumental event transpiring above.
