The yearly Pinki the bilby in costume picture. I've been wanting to dress in a sailor outfit for a while now, but they're all very tiny and revealing and cheap looking. Some day...
Watercolor in the Japanese watercolor pad I got for a dollar, so it's not very good quality.

A quick sketch to get back on track. Scary boar butcher! I've heard that human meat has been referred to as "long pig" in certain cultures, and that pork is the meat that tastes closest to people. Another reason why I do not eat pork...

A mummy enjoying a day at the beach. I didn't want her to look this dead; well, you know what I mean, she's dead, but reanimated and is just taking a nap on the sand. Anyway, a non-water soluable pen sketch blended with water, and a touch of watercolor. She has a big hole from where they took our her organs.

I had a tape recorded off TV of the Will Vinton Claymation Comedy of Horrors special. I really liked all the different characters in it. Rewatching it now, it still has its charms. I'm a sucker for stop motion animation. A large part of the story takes place at a kind of monster convention on Halloween. This is a swamp creature guy who shows up a few times. I thought his sweater vest was great, and I liked how he stood with his arms bent funny and half-closed eyes. I think a monster he doesn't like just walked into the room as he was sampling an anchovy-and-octopus eye appetizer.
Watercolor and blue pencil drawing.

A small sketch of the end result of a witches' brew. After Shakespeare:
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing,—
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble
I drew the ones I could easily show missing their parts. And that are about the same size.

Happy October! This seems to be the month when everyone wants to do lots of art. I won't kid myself and say I'm going to post a new picture every day, but I hope to make some spooky pictures and post them more frequently. We start with a Photoshop drawing, pulling out all the dumb tricks. Transparent layers! Soft brushes blended around the edges! Crazy filters! I don't know how to draw rain but I wanted to get something up. Not all my Halloween art will be scary, though I'll try to do a few creepy ones.
