The Haunted House by DAN-KA The Haunted House by DAN-KA
Hi all.

This is an "old" work I did for a matte paint contest on
It was done just for fun and exercise but it became one of my best work.
I sold it many times for various customers and purpose, and it was published both on line and on paper many times.

I like your drawing. However, when I was googling for Haunted Houses and saw this piece, the link was this… Don't know if you sold your art to that site or not.

But why so low res?

Would be a nice walpaper if super high res!

This mansion would be so perfect. The mystery, the chill, the haunting, its so enrapturing!
puddenhead86wmrg Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2013
Everything that is added like the old dead tree and the gravestones in the front gives this the best haunted house I've seen yet. The lighting is perfect the sky with the dark looming clouds. I love it.

Hey, would you mind if I saved this picture with the near 300 pictures I have under mypictures and have it as a desktop background? If you would prefer in that case, I would understand if you wanted to put some kind of watermark on it so that the credit would go to you for this lovely picture.

A proposito di STIkS69

posso solo dire, avendo avuto il dispiacere di avere a che fare con
Stiks, che molto peggio di come lo descrivono.

Ho amato alla follia questo capolavoro! :hug:
complimenti per i tuoi lavori !
STIKS-1969 Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2011
OH ... I find the backround...
I'm sorry... I find this image on internet...
I wrote:
"Manor image taken on internet"

and I will delete my image...
:iconjustalittleknotty: show to people your "note"...
you said on the note that you consider me as a raciste....
who are you to judge me ?
it was only the rumour that :iconstock-by-casey: had throw in her journalr and that she deleted afterward.

so, think as you want... you don't know me.
And: iconjustalittleknotty: doing everything possible for me to be banned because I've blocked
so think as you want

and sorry for your image
cljdesign Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013
LOL this comment is directed @ !STIKS-1969 (who I believe finally left dA for good) Dude, seriously... What I wrote in my journal had nothing to do with your using this artwork illegally. My journal had to do with my not allowing my stock being used with yours after the racist, Anti-Semitic, comment you stated to me which many other deviants saw and which I took a screen capture of. But, you keep telling yourself I wrote about you being a thief, my journal was posted before the knowledge of your stealing went public.

(spooky music playing) There is a house upon the hilltop. We will not go inside. For that is where the witches live, where ghosts and goblins hide.
Tonight they have their party, all the lights are burning bright, but oh, we will not go inside the haunted house tonight.

The demons there are whirling and the spirits swirl about.
they sing their songs to Halloween. "Come join the fun", they shout.
But we do not want want to go there. So we run with all our might.
And oh, we will not go inside the haunted house tonight.

From the book, "It's Halloween" by Auther Jack Prelutsky, and pictures drawn by Marylin Hafner.

This picture just reminded me of that book(page 42). I like it. I believe I'll add this to my favorites:)
