Part III: [link]

I'm gonna be honest! I'm really torn between being happy that I finished this and being really sad that I'm probably going to have to go back and do a lot of edits for continuity and general reworking of bad drawings!

I mean there's definitely at least one set-up where the ground plane is like "lol bbiab"

So it's pretty embarrassing that this took so long to finish! My defense is that I thumbnailed it when I had a lot of free time and then school started so I ended up using this mostly as a warm-up before starting homework. D:

EDIT: There's a dumb little musical reference in the dialogue, did anyone catch it? XD I'm not sure how many people have seen this particular musical (hint: it's not a Jekyll and Hyde reference)

WARNING: This final section is kind of TL;DR territory.
This section has very little action and a lot of talking and is mostly Frankenstein riding through his hopefully not too contrived character arc.

Right now it seems intrinsic to his personality that he does not become introspective unless he is severely injured and/or bedridden. Otherwise, he is more likely to expel any confusing emotions in the form of, say, a two-month trek through the wilderness.

He is not someone who is ordinarily very good at understanding other people's emotions (something Creature can attest to, according to canon), so someone like Hyde, who is extremely confusing from nearly anyone's perspective, is essentially an emotional black hole that Frankenstein generally just tries to ignore.

Creature is correct, though! Edward Hyde does consider Frankenstein a friend, and is perhaps more affectionate towards him (granted, he is the sort of person to show affection in the manner of, say, a lion) than Jekyll is. Sometimes Hyde can get a little bored with his friends and, you know, kill them and things (as Lucy can attest to), but if he were going to kill Frankenstein, he would have done it before they left London. No point in killing your only guide through an epic wilderness.

Is Creature a girl or a boy? 
Princess-Giuly-Frost Featured By Owner 4 days ago  Student Filmographer
I think is a boy, but I don't know...
Elizabethyyy Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2014
loved all four parts~~
Greats designs, style, and ...well...everything, to be honest

I caught the musical reference, but it took me a bit. Dr. Fine from Next to Normal, yes?
Nimuk Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2014
I love this! I kept on hearing DR. Frankenstein as the Medic from TF2, Jekyll and Hyde as Jack Skeleton (Danny Elfman), and Creature with a kind of deep voice. The black comedy was good and the story was fun! Keep up the great work!

ever thought of making this into a comic? don't have to worry about voice acting and you basically have all the panels for these parts. =]

there's also self publishers online, so no deadlines for books besides your own made up dates. :meow:

Is Hyde... crying? Or is that just blood congealing around his eye?
Le-frostKitten Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I think it's either blood, or anime-style sweat.

Only in this, you would ask that kind of question...

I like to imagine your Jekyll/Hyde to sound like Bakura from the 4Kids! dub of Yugioh.
BenevolentRose Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
So I just stumbled onto your account and I've been looking through some stuff and AH MAH GAWD <3

Frankenstein is my favorite thing.  I'm totally in love~

Mr. Hyde is definitely my second favorite.  I've become an instant fan. ^.^

You don't happen to still have commission slots available, do you? <.<   ~<3

I swear, you have such wonderful character designs. Especially Hyde. :D

I really enjoyed this! I just discovered your dA, so I'm just going through all your Jekyll and Hyde stuff. And that next to normal reference-awesome!!! :)
BlackberryFinn Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2013
Hyde reminds me of myself quite a lot, except that I am slightly less violent.
Aryashi Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2013
These are excellent storyboards and I love the interactions between these two different characters. :) Hyde is also a great character in that he is dangerous and unnerving but at the same time human. He's clearly a crazy dangerous guy, rather than a crazy dangerous monster. Also, MAJOR bonus points for having Frankenstein's monster being called Creature in stead of Frankenstein.

Plus you have a great sense for when to go into detail in your boards and when to let a panel take up more time. They all have a great sense of flow and I really like the format you have here. Plus I never say no to snark, and Jekyll has that in spades. :XD:

Shadowhunter625 Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
so you do put Hyde with pointed ears!
otherwise Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2012  Professional Filmographer
Actually that's more of an accidental drawing quirk I've picked up over the years 8D; He doesn't have pointed ears in real life!
Shadowhunter625 Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
ohh well....but he does look nice with them.

Nice. How did you do the flash animation (i.e., where the animation is moved by simply clicking the "next" button)?
otherwise Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2011  Professional Filmographer
I used this tutorial! Please note that the flash tutorial by itself is slightly imperfect--however, the description and comments fill in the occasional hole~

This is very handy for showing storyboards!

Oh my gosh! I almost died when I saw the Next to Normal reference. D: And how you portray these characters, especially Hyde, is seriously the best.

Next to Normal, eh? I love Hyde's insane personality and Frankenstein's failure at comprehending it.
otherwise Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2011  Professional Filmographer
Next to Normal for the win! :3 I don't even know if they had the ability to form different shaped pills back then, but I had to get that line in somewhere.
CigfrainSol Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2011  Student Writer
That was wonderful! I really enjoyed it, all the way through. Going to make a great short animation. c:
kvweber Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2011  Student Digital Artist
So awesome, I love your character development so much! I...I don't really have words to explain what I really love about this series of animatics/storyboards, suffice it to say that I truly do love them.

these were seriously fun to read, seriously. :heart:

you have some mighty clean sketches, you can just turn this into a animation already and it'll still look nice!

it's kinda sweet to see Hyde and Frankenstein sorta like friends, it's sort of something I didn't expect out of Hyde, but then again I just barely got to know his character. I love your version of Hyde, he's scary but he's somewhat humane. Not sure if that made any sense but I just admire this character, I love a character that has two sides. He's also somewhat quite good looking... that little wink he did, SWOON.

Creature's just awesome.
otherwise Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2011  Professional Filmographer
Haha yeah I tend to sketch clean. 8|;; Actually it becomes a problem because sometimes rough is better, and I am bad at doing rough sketches XD;

In my story, Hyde and Frankenstein are actually very good friends! Frankenstein is actually acting more standoffish than usual (mostly because Hyde doesn't ordinarily come to him covered in fresh blood). I think Hyde's actions at the end of this story border on sentimental, but I justify it as: Jekyll's friendship towards Frankenstein go quite deep, so they even affect his very darkest self.
breecrust Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2011
lol awww poor insecure frankenstein :c i love that the creature seems more psychologically balanced and normal than any of them, so perfect <3
