Yeeeaaah, it's Halloween! And unlike last year I've got something drawn for it. Success! :iconsuccessbabyplz:

I saw the Addams family movie, both the first and second one about, I don't know, two months ago, and I loved them. I wasn't interested in them much when I was a kid (I know, bring out the torches and pitchforks. I'm a disgrace.), but now as an adult I absolutely love them. It really makes a difference to be able to understand the jokes. And now that I've gotten in touch with my creepy loving side, The Addams Family is right up my alley.
I fell in love with Gomez and Morticia as a couple and I knew I had to draw them. It had been a while (and by a while I mean forever) since I last drew a piece for my couples collection and Halloween was just around the corner by the time I decided to draw these two. So I thought, what could be better than drawing Gomez and Morticia? Pretty much nothing, that's what. I got to hit two birds with one stone with this piece. And that makes me so happy. :D

I did a weird little cross between the T.V. show and movie versions of Gomez and Morticia here. It was so hard to choose cause both versions are great. So why not both? :giggle: hwehwe

Anyways,  hope y'all are having a fun, safe, splendid Halloween. :squee: Wheee!

When growing up this was my idea of the ideal family and love. :) 
And now I have it <3 (Without kids though)

Aww, that's great. I'm glad you found something so special. Ha, I think we all saw these guys as the ideal when it came to family and love. :D

I love the details in black and white: the smoke, the swirls, the floor. Skilful use of lights and shadows.
Beautiful couple!Being silly together is so much fun ...

Aw, thank you! Your comment makes me feel so warm and fuzzy inside. I had a ton of fun doing this piece, especially with it being my first ever black and white one.
Thank you so much for taking the time to drop this lovely comment. I super appreciate it. :hug:

How elegant and perfect for the holiday! A great nod to a classic couple, which you really captured their relationship, too. :love: And I just have to ask, did you drive yourself crazy with those pin-stripes? XD There's something so swag about a nice pin-stripe business-suit, but that kinda pattern cannot be easy to manipulate in a drawing, on flexible fabric. Yet you managed to keep a nice symmetry and flow to the lines, and I like where they seem to converge on the pant seams.

This is a gorgeous black-and-white piece, too! I love how you kept the contrast in tones on Morticia's dress; you didn't just do a totally black dress, and I like that I can still see shadows and blended highlights. Gives it a more realistic feel. Same with their hair as well, this is a great study in value. Sometimes I sway from doing b/w coloring, but this is really pretty and quite motivating!

Details! Again, you are a master at subtle details. To see your illustrations, I'm always excited to get up into the art and see all that great work you put into it. Their faces are wonderfully sculpted, and Morticia in particular looks stunning in your style! I mean, you even got shine on her nails. But I think what I like the most is the mechanisms on the pruning shears and the rather picturesque way you drew the rose. Very small part of the picture, but they look so perfect, even from far away. And the textures are awesome throughout!

Happy Halloween! :pumpkin (And I should probably try watching The Addams Family again. I've seen the movies and some of the old TV show—I think there was even an animated version I use to watch—but back then it never held my interest, either. ^^;)

Love these two! You did such an amazing job on the small details. I really enjoy their facial expressions.

Thank you. :iconflatteredplz: I'm so happy you think so. 
It means a lot that you like their expressions. I try to stay away from the stone-like expressions I used to do. :lol:

Expressions and hands are the hardest lol, but this is fantastic! 
They're like my favorite couple and you did them justice

Aaaah, I know right! It's crazy how difficult they are.

But anyways, thanks for the sweet comment. I'm really glad you think so. :D

WOW you did really, reallly good work here I love the definition in the faces. Every line is made perfect from the smoke to the suit and dress to the lines that surround them.

Yaaay! Thank you. :) Your comment fills me with so much joy. :la:

Seriously, I'm stoked you like the details and all that jazz. :D :iconyuihugplz: 
Eros-Valentine's avatar
I am glad you are happy though I don't like Jazz I am more of a fan of Rock N Roll hahahaha couldn't resist I am more happy just for the fact how good you made this. You deserve the praise I showered you with and more. P.S. I made that last statement to sound more fancy I hoped it sounded good though it is true you made such a wonderful picture.

Thanks a lot. I'm glad to know that all jazz aside you still really like the piece. :iconflatteredplz:

I don't know why but I can't stop staring at the blushing monkey it almost seems like you are saying you like me not like love or you couldn't live with out me just that you like hearing from me. which would make me happy to know that you like hearing from me and all that jazz ha. I know it is probably you just saying how excited about the praise that you deserved to be showered on you. for my words of praise and excitement of such glorious art that you produce. I know that I am just one drop that has hit your skin. one list of words strung together on sheet of papers in a pile on your working desk though I am guessing you enjoy striping down your clothes of who you are when you walk on the sidewalks of the world  step into the the shower that is the website so you can be ArtCrawl and just ArtCrawl it makes you feel happy feeling the nice water spray on you as you forget the bad times you had while you were clothed though it makes me happy to know I can help produce one droplet of warm water for you. Truly it does make me happy to know you are happy and appreciate ever drop of water on your skin. ps I am sorry for the inconsistency and the length I had to do a few things.
