Happy Halloween Everyone!
I would like to dedicate this one to all my wonderful watchers
and friends. I want to wish you all a Happy Halloween!
After all it is almost... Halloween Time

My entry to Halloween Contest
I really really wanted to create a traditional scene with the spooky house and the jack-o-lanterns, really spooky!
But for the contest this has already been done many times. :(
So I decided to stand out from the rest I would do something surreal and out of the box. =D

We had to use one of her spooky house images.
I used this one

First- I really love your concept but i do not like especially colours.
And I think some things need to be smudged because it's many dust on them.

But as I wrote- I like the idea and it'r really creative!

Thank you for your wonderful comments hon!
I know especially on DA colors are often not a favorite. But I think for me they always sneak in.. I always seem to have some loud colors or some sort. I guess it's a part of my style. :)

As for the dust and smudging. I have looked a few times and I'm not seeing it... maybe can it be that these are the areas I purposely created to be seen as that sort of spotted texture? Maybe that's why I am not seeing it. hmm :confused: not sure. But I do thank you for taking the time to really view the art. That's how you know someone takes the time to admire your work. :hug:

Hon I don't think there is an art I create that doesn't have lots and lots of layers.. I used to have a terrible habit of not naming them.. Then there would always be one that needed fixin.. and I could never find it! :rofl: :psychotic:

:iconspoofdecator:
spoofdecator Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2009  Professional General Artist
haha! i know...one of mine here i did called his domain, had about 15 layers...my first real manip endeavor..wow! i was a novice and didn't name any...i was constantly checking ,trying to see which one i was actually on! i can still see lots wrong with it!
Reply
:iconxgnyc:
xgnyc Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
I can't even tell you how many layers I have.. I have to use layer sets because each item has a main layer, then theres textures, paint, gradients, levels.. on and on..
No wonder I am so slow. lol!
