This is part 3 of 9 of my ghastly alphabet.

G ~ The gallows have a rich tradition of raven, crowds, executioners and executionees.

H
~ Hostile robots are always ready to fight, even each other. The model on the left is a drone, controled by an external A.I. The one on the right is an older design, but very efficient and independent.

I
~ Illuminating candles can be found in any haunted castle, spooky mansion or mysterious cabin.

ABC
DEF
GHI ~ you are here
JKL
MNO ~ coming soon
PQR ~ coming later
STU ~ coming later
VWX ~ coming later
YZ ~ coming later

This is really creative *why didn't I think of it >.<*. I really liked how you manipulated the objects so they turn out to look like the letter you needed, instead of using typical shapes. E.g. Robots reaching their hands out instead of blocks stacked on top of each other for the letter 'H'. I also like the way you shaded the objects, giving the picture a more realistic look instead of something flat out from paper. Out of all these letters, I like the candle the best ; the attention to detail, the the glow around the flames, the shading, are all done fantastically.
The only thing that i think can be improved is the background, it looks a little plain as the vast majority of the page is white. Maybe add some shading to it? But then again this is could be because the focus is on the letters.
Overall, well done, and keep up the good work!

Thanks a whole lot, dear fellow commenter.

I am really dissatisfied with the background in this series, but I really don't know what to do. Shading would fill out some of it, thank you for the suggestion. And thanks for the compliment, but I think more than just the background could need some improving.

This is very interesting work. The idea of ghastly alphabet is great and quite original (I never saw person to make alphabet pictures).
What I like the most is the candle, because it has the most details like melting wax drops and its flame is really beautiful. Also, you use shading well and despite your picture is simple, it´s eyescatching and funny.:)

Nice, I didn't notice they're the alphabets straight away. The candle is done really well anyway it stands on its own.

Thanks! I'm kinda proud of the candle - the lineart, anyway. I'm still having trouble with shading and colours.

Hmm... I hope it will become clear enough that those all represent letters when I put them all together. Oh, well, I think it will be good enough.
