made this for the "deviantArt Spooky Craft Contest"

what is halloween ?
if you search at the wikipedia page you will find no direct hint what it is and where it comes from.

one definition that has prevailed is, to scare the bad demons away to get a good start into the new year. at least it's the one for, what we have in germany called "fasching"

the idea to create a mask for halloween is not very new but my objective was to build one that even scare the shit out of the badest bed- and wardrobemonsters

if i reached this goal, well decide on your own :)

P.S.
it's paper and yes the jaw can be moved

p.s.s.
i'm not a cosplayer, so I feel a bit sheepish about it, to upload this ^^;
so sry about the improvised background and pose ^^;

(building time: 2 weeks with three attempts)


-edit-
you can download the model here

Carved pumpkins today with my girlfriend. I had no idea there was a contest for this when I came to submit it...just got lucky I guess.

Sorry for the cell phone picture. It's probably not winning material anyways :p

Grim reaper on his way to collect plushie souls. :D

Halloween has to be my most favourite time of the year because it's a great excuse to go crazy. :XD: Even though Halloween originated in the UK, sadly it's not really
celebrated here.

As my celebration for Halloween. I wanted to make something for the fun occasion.

When you think of plushie, you think of cute, fluffy, and cuddly, right? :D Heehee! so.... I wanted challenge myself! :evillaugh: I want to make something the complete opposite! Who is better for the role than the Grim Reaper himself. :XD:

I drew the background by using charcoal and chalks to create a sinister gloomy background, the crosses on the ground are black card cutouts, and I used toy stuffing for the cloudy effects. :D

At the time I wanted to take a photo in a gloomy setting but the camera I had is rubbish at taking pictures in the dark.

my first time trying out the artstudio app on an iphone--instant addiction

I only started making coffee at home on the stovetop with a moka after moving to Italy, and still haven't quite learned other methods. Every French press attempt so far has been completely unsatisfactory.

The Draugrnaut - Death Plane Colossus

"The Draugrnaut" is a combination of the Norse "draugr" and "juggernaut". A colossal being comprised of a horde of restless souls encased in enormous plates of armour, the Draugrnaut is a merciless destructive force that seeks to claim souls to feed its undying hunger while gaining power for each soul devoured. Its main tools of destruction are its spectral blade and swarm of seeker souls. It is capable of transforming into a vast ghostly fog for travel and is both physical and ethereal.

My first contest submission ever on DeviantArt. Took me about two weeks to complete from the initial concept sketches to Photoshop painting and editing. Since I am fairly new to digital painting I felt that there were many times when I wanted to change or redo things, or meticulously paint until I get a desired result. However, time was running short and I had to just get this done no matter what.

Amaterasu, the sun goddess who took into the form of a wolf, from Capcom's critically acclaimed game; Okami.

This is my second Okami fan artwork, made for the contest hosted by DeviantArt. I'm very happy with how this one turned out, and I hope it does well in the contest ^^.

Fun fact: there are 220 petals in total, not counting the ones that are still attached to the tree.

Note: re-uploaded because it wasn't showing up on the contest's folder, maybe because I replaced the original file to fix a little mistake I found within five minutes after submitting it.

(Fullview is massive at 1600 pixels wide. Download will give you the full size of the image as per the contest guidelines, 3300x2550 pixels at 300 dpi. You've been warned.)

So DeviantArt is having a contest for Okami fanart, if you haven't heard. I love this game, and I've never won anything before, but it didn't hurt to try it, aye? In fact this was rather fun, I've been working on it off and on for the past week or two when I took breaks from final exams and projects.

I did my best to make it look like a painting, using fairly rough-looking brushes in photoshop and re-drawing lines over and over to get the right look for the pressure of the brush. It's a fairly simple illustration but I think the pose is pleasantly 'active' and Ammy looks as close to her in-game self as I could manage.

Probably the best fanart I've done in ages, so if I don't win, at least I have a neat new desktop background!

And yes, in the lower left, that's a very rough approximation of my first name in katakana. I apologize in advance to anyone who can read and write katakana fluently - my handwriting is probably atrocious. I merely thought it would be a neat visual touch for a piece based on a game that emulates Japanese painting and calligraphy is all. I tried my best, but if it's inaccurate, well, then there's my signature in English right next to it. ;)

After finals, I swear I'm going to be sitting and playing this game to death, because doing this made me miss it.
