"Giallo" means "yellow" in Italian… and horror. "Giallo movies," a unique blend of crime, mystery and sex-infused horror stories would become the equivalent of Britain's signature Hammer Films. Mario Bava was their first master.

In ancient tradition, Halloween was thought to be the night of the year when the realms of the living of the living and the dead came the closest together, enabling evil spirits and demons to hop over to our side to make mischief.

Victorian Stroll

I like the way this photo was colored. Judging by the title, what I got from the picture is that a woman may be wearing clothes of her time (lacey, sophisticated), but her hair suggests that the woman herself isn't as traditional. Like underneath all those clothes is a woman so special or so colorful that tradition is merely a mask she wears as a mans to get by in the larger world. While, the practice may not be new, that matters less once you see the story that the picture tells. :-)

As for the stroll, that gives me an idea that the woman may just be bringing herself into a boring town, and the moment she leaves, it's like the world around her will never be the same.

Hi :)
First of all, you have a beautiful drawing style and it's great to see you exploring it. I really like the colour scheme you picked for this, with a lot of cool colours but also a bit of yellow and purple. You also have some lovely textures going on and I love the way you drew the lines coming down from the moon. It's a very nice visual aspect.

Okay time for constructive criticism. I feel like the top half and bottom half aren't connected enough. The textures and objects all suddenly change at that wavy middle line. I would suggest either putting the wavy line either higher or lower in the artwork, so the artwork doesn't looked halved at the middle, or having more similarities between the top half and the bottom half. The white moon drips do that to a certain extent, but there could be more things connecting the halves.

Hope that helps!

I always love your art to bits, and so I just--
Yea I love it soooo much you've no idea

Okay, so for the actual critiquey thingie:

sHADING IS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS AND SO IS THE COLORING OMFG Y'ER SO GOOD
I love how the girl, she is just sitting there staring at her phone, yet the cat is staring at the screen. Makes me think it has some in-depth meaning like:
"Human's are so into technology they don't see things that animals can sense in a second."
Either that or it's just a pretty drawing of a girl and a kitty.

Oh, and another thing!!
Okay so I love how you pay such great attention to the backgrounds like--
I always notice that in all of your drawings--
It's so goooooood.

Okay!~
Done!~
