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.

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.

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.

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!

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".

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.
