My favorite Benedict Cumberbatch role - The Creature from Frankenstein
It’s playing around the world again this October so if you haven’t seen it, or have only seen the Victor!batch version, I would highly recommended trying to see it. I liked him before I saw this but this performance truly changed my perceptions of theater and acting altogether, and aside from still having a big gross crush on him I respect him immensely.
I painted this JUST IN CASE we happened to run across him at SDCC (which was unlikely, but hey, wishful thinking) and also because I really wanted to paint the creature again, I love the design of the character a lot.
I’m not really satisfied with it but maybe I’ll revisit it in a few years when my skill level (hopefully) increases :))

Die Nibelungen (1924) - Der Drache | Behind the scenes Information

The dragon was about sixteen metres long. It was worked from underneath and came down a steep path. Underneath were six or eight men who pushed the dragon along a track. The dragon was actually sitting on one or two iron sheets. It was attached to them and hovered above the slope of the ground. It didn’t touch the ground anywhere, just it’s tail. Four men sat in the dragon, one in each leg. Two men sat at the front to operate the head. The end scene where Siegfried bathes in the dragon’s blood had to be doubled. The actor Paul Richter didn’t want to be naked in front of a camera, because he feared it would destroy his reputation as actor. They used a double every Lang fan will know for sure: Rudolf Klein-Rogge, who played Rotwang in “Metropolis” was willing to double for Richter.
