Frankenstein's Monster titled 'Everybody But Me (in the world)'.

Full of grief and despair, Frankenstein retreats to the mountains to find peace within himself. The monster approaches Frankenstein on top of the mountain and insists that Frankenstein hear his plight. Here, the monster tells Frankenstein his story and pleads with him to create a female equivalent to himself so that he can hide from humanity with one of his own kind. Frankenstein agrees, but relents just before finishing the mate, aghast at the possibility of creating a race of monsters

Captain Robert Walton: Who are you?

The Creature: He never gave me a name.

[he continues to weep]

Captain Robert Walton: Why do you weep?

The Creature: He was my father.

You  have  made the ugly and wretched beautiful.  I'm glad that you didn't add a background to this one, it helps the focus stay on the monster and those gorgeous stars.  Sublime :)

When I see this image I always think of a Christian song by Joe Niemand, Frankenstein:

Fix me
Like I’m Frankenstein

Fix me
Turn my screws with mercy

Fix my wounds
Just stitch me

The sadness, sorrow and loneliness are depicted very well on this painting, also the blue and violett colours of the livor mortis are chosen very well. A fine piece of art.

Love the detail in this piece and how fluent the colors mesh in together to create that liquid galaxy look.

To me he looks very much like I feel sometimes. It's like I can feel his facial expression with my own face. It's perfect. Withdrawn from the world, in deep though, calm yet something is boiling, feeling blue, but there is light and if it's only sparks of hope and optimism. It's like when I feel like nothing's going through me but some bare naked reality for me to ponder at face value without any notable emotions and making of it what I would.
I never got into the Frankenstein story much I can't comment much on the monster man himself in relation to your rendering of him other than you made him look very fantastic and relateable. I especially love his forehead.

I love how you've used a space pattern on him, with that look.. it's almost like as a creature the people judged, he now judges us.
