All Better Off Dead by FeretStudios All Better Off Dead by FeretStudios
Sooo I managed to scrape up my entry to the 2013 Halloween Dreamkeepers Art Contest (dreamkeepers-fans.deviantart.c…

I decided to take a small break from all my class work and pop out a quick Halloween picture since it's coming up soon. But I neither had the brain power (durr bad for brain is no sleep) or witty creativity to think up a good costume. So I just went for, hopefully, something a little unsettling.

That's why I did it. It's such an opposite contrast that it's almost shocking to see.

It's amazing how much can be communicated in a picture with so little light and color.

This just oozes creepiness.

I like it a LOT, but the best part is definitely that scythe. 

Dat lighting...pure awesomeness.

Thank you! The lighting was indeed the hardest and longest part. My laptop is also almost always on the highest brightness setting so it was completely black the first time I saved it. XD Needed some adjustments.

You did an exceptional job on this one, mostly on negative space management. It makes the whole drawing that much more powerful.

Congratulations!

I always imagine if someone were to come up to me in a dark cloak, with a scythe, and sporting a menacing smile I'd take them a little bit more seriously then usual. XD Just a hunch.

Your very welcome!Seriously it came off great and showed Bobby in more of a dark light(That hopefully won't be in the GNS) which was a nice bit of contrast compared to his nice and caring side.

That's good, but I was talking about the fact that my submission also features a scythe-wielding Dreamkeeper.

Thanks but do you mean that literally. Like did I miss something from the comics? O>O Or just as a metaphor - which would make sense.

Oh, I was just referring to the scene where he is holding a glowing orb in the bunks.  It seemed to be a manifestation of his powers.  That coupled with his bright color scheme, juxtaposed with the dark colors you dressed him in, make for a very interesting effect.
