Smiling Pumpkin Lantern

Good evening everyone!

So who doesn’t like a freshly carved pumpkin with a candle inside? Better yet, how about one that smiles when you visit him?

We are about most of the way through the September month and slowing creeping into October. The Halloween season is almost upon us.

Are you ready?

Knight in Peril? (Reworked)

Good evening!

I did some more work on this piece tonight. Just didn’t have enough luster in the last version and I like to mess with stuff. Tweaking, buffing, blending, coloring, erasing, recoloring, rebuffing, and the more erasing…aaaaaaahhhhhhh!

Anyway, I added some more effects to put the focal point where I want it. I added some water down below, added some background details to help describe the type of old cave the knight is in….bet he won’t go back there again!

As always! Do enjoy!

P.S. I am looking for some good Halloween ideas so if there is something you want to see, send me a note, comment, or email! I love a good challenge.

Autumn Day – Reworked

Hello again,

I went back over this one and thought it would be nice to have some clouds and maybe some falling leaves to spruce this piece up a bit. I added some clouds as well to help set the mood and time of day.

Does anyone want to see anything special for Halloween? Give me some ideas and I’ll draw, animate, and post them for everyone to enjoy.

Wizard Mountain

Hello everyone!

I present to you Wizard Mountain tonight. Standing above all on a mountain top stands one of the greatest wizards of all moving space and time with the snap of his fingers. Pretty cool huh? I designed the scene first and then placed it behind my animation cells to look like the environment is being controlled by the wizard. I used a couple of layers to deepen the color scheme. I used a separate layer for the sky and of course the animation cells. Not quite Pixar worthy yet but it is a good start.

I hope you all enjoy.
