And Happy Halloween!

Finally, right?  Here's wishing you a spooky day!

It took my two tries to draw this one.  When the first attempt was done I was all "Did I do this?" because he face looked so different to me than my previous girls.  But in a good way since I've been worried my girls are all starting to look the same, or at least like they're all from the same family.  When I was done the second attempt I was all "Yup, I did this" so this is how she stayed.   This one also includes all of spooky-ish type fonts.

Did you say the words right?

We watched Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness all in a row this past Saturday night.  We haven't done that since college when you'd have enough time to grab a drink or a bathroom break while the video tape rewound.

Bless the person who came up with that blob brush in Photoshop.  I didn't know how I was going to make that on my own.

Look out! Radioactive Monster!

Meh, he's probably harmless.  I'm really digging this little guy.  I've been wanting to play with glowing shapes for a while so he looked like a good chance to test some things.  I love it when people use opposite colours to highlight and shade things, like orange on blue, but for some reason I have such a hard time getting my head around colouring that way.  This may look simple but I broke a sweat trying to get those green highlights working.

More Zombies

These were also made during my zombie phase.  I found some black bordered blank watercolour cards at the art store and though it would be fun to make some zombie greeting cards.  I toted them to the comic convention for 3 years and guess how many I sold?  One.  But I can still look back upon them with fondness and only a little bitterness.

Halloween Music

Thanks to Devil's Night Radio I learned about the Nekromantix.  I love this song now.

I just found these recently in my old work folder!  They were for a Christmas art trade with some friends.  We really should get back into that.  Again, these were hand inked and coloured with inks.  GRR!  I have GOT to get back into doing this sort of thing more!

The Thing, The Musical

Some people are just geniuses.

Thanks to Andrew I've seen The Thing, like, 6 times and I still can't watch the dog scene with fully open eyes and I still jump at the blood test.

Casual Jason

I can't remember how this one came about exactly.  I think I was watching the first movie on tv again and something struck me funny about a casual Jason just strolling on the grass.

This one is for all us Canadians enjoying Thanksgiving this weekend with pumpkin pie for dessert!

It's a watercolour trading card.  Very rough paper and I totally forgot how to paint with real paints.  But some of my schooling came back to me and I tried applying some things I've learned colouring with vectors.

Side note:  One of my top 5 pet peeves is people who say "Punkin".

Halloween Art Trading Cards

After trying out these art trading cards at the FanExpo in August I found I really liked them so I bought a bunch more.  I like them because they're small so it's just sketch-sketch-ink-BOOM-you're done.  Nice.  I have some that are bristol board and some that are watercolour paper.  This one is bristol and I pulled out some old ink bottles to try out some ink washes.  I used to do those ALL the time!  What happened!?  Oh yeah, Adobe Illustrator came into my life.

More Monsters

Another batch of monsters.  I'm thinking purple fur?  Maybe green wings and orange horns?  Hm, we'll see...
