HAPPY HALLOWEEN, ALL YOU HALLOWEENIES :pumpkin:

Thank you so much for all of your support, favs, watches, comments, and llamas!


ENJOY THE HOLIDAY, eat lots of candy, dress in a funny costume, and have a ball :eager:

I received a lot of feedback that was SO HELPFUL to make this image what it is. I learned so much making this :aww:

I didn't even keep track of the hours... but it was a lot lol

Please view, comment, subscribe and share our living-dead tribute, “The Walker!” We were sure to include Easter-eggs like, the space-probe and cement spade from the first NotLD film. For “Walking Dead” fans, Michonne’s Katana can be seen hanging on the kitchen wall. As well as CORAL’s pudding on the kitchen counter! We even threw in a couple of vintage Mustangs!                             www.youtube.com/watch?v=4EIsv6QmEHk

Slow comment is slow, my excuse is I was busy eating candy, getting tipsy and shouting obscene things with friends at the Rocky Horror Picture Show XD Anywaaaays,

I really really really love this piece.
Everyone does something either super cute and happy for halloween or something scary and macabre, this was a very nice and fresh change of pace. And I think that's what compounds it's effect that much more, 'cuz we just aren't expecting it. I almost cried when I saw this, it's really very powerful :heart:

LOLOLOL that sounds like my halloween! Minus Rocky Horror, but I did listen to it in the car on the way downtown! :D

I am so glad everyone really likes this piece. I was originally gonna go the "beautiful but deadly" route, then I scrapped that idea after I had gotten some feedback that I need to take my work beyond being "just pretty". I really wanted a challenge, and something out of the norm. :nod:

I'm glad this is a powerful image!

...Awwww... ;_;

I want to be his friend...

small feedback: I think one of the troll's eyes are a bit too high from the other one... but I love the atmosphere and how the glow of the fire feels. I also would like to suggest that the fire should drown out more of the wood by it's brightness, but hey omg that's some pretty wood... wouldn't want it covered anyhow LOL! :)

Lii-chan Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2010
Thanks!

I didn't even notice one of the eyes - thanks for pointing that out!

As for the fire, I originally had it a lot brighter, but I received feedback that it was killing the contrast and mood, so I turned it way down. I'm pretty happy that I did, but I think the fire itself could use more work :nod:

Thank you for the comments!!!

I love the way that the viewer is drawn into the place with the witches in the corner, and your message comes across really well!

Poor monster! Very well done.

Amazing and interesting piece, really. Firstly I looked at this I thought it was just a normal and atmospheric Halloween illustration, but then I noticed the witches and looked back at the troll and I was like "oh...".

I was also going to say something about the composition but it actually fits this piece.

Lii-chan Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2010
The composition is definitely something different than what I normally do, but I felt it conveyed the best emotion :nod: Thank you for the compliments!
