Even though I'm a fan of the Universal Monsters, the Creature from the Black Lagoon has never been a favorite of mine. He is hugely popular and has a large fan base. I've seen several of the films he was in, but he never really clicked with me. Maybe it's because he doesn't emote very well. I really don't know.
I do know he's very difficult to paint. I enjoy the challenge of painting him, but rendering all those scales can get very tedious! I've painted him several times and even though I swear I'll never do another portrait of him I end of trying it one more time.
