Oh my goodness, I just need to post this now and get it over with!  I've been holding off because I finished it last month and thought it was a bit too early to post a Halloween illustration but now, even though I feel I've waited long enough, I've been fighting an indescribable productivity halt that made me feel like I didn't know what to say about this piece and kept stopping me from even looking at it.

I feel dumb saying that but there it is XD

Anyway, this is my Halloween card illustration this year!  Again, it's my fanged kitty, Kiba!  This time I went for a ghostie theme.  shumphrey pointed out that the two ghost kitties could represent our other two household cats since one is small and one is big X3

I'm really pleased with how the coloring came out on this, especially how my markers behaved.  I initially planned to do a lot of digital work but in the end I liked the traditional stuff so much I only did a bit of digital cleanup and added a color overlay to enhance the nighttime atmosphere.

Ink, marker, colored pencil, and Photoshop, 8.5x11"
