Halloween 17 Promo Illustration

It’s Halloween time again! It’s always fun to draw images about ghosts, vampires, witches–especially if they are made cute and for kids!

This image was for a Halloween promo for my rep, Tugeau2. The prompt was to illustrate a “Halloween Parade”. Above is the final illustration, and below are some closeups. I also included some early stages of working on this, including the first sketch (digital and in color), along with some comps and color variations. As I worked on this, I inserted some off-hand, random copy of a story line, just to consider how that could fit on the page. Overall, it was a lot of fun to work on and develop. I would still make some changes, I think. I would go back and re-develop what’s happening in the window of the big house, among other things. It wasn’t thought through entirely as I worked on the piece, and in the end, I had about ten ideas! And as much as I like the shading on the figures, I am inclined to rework that so it doesn’t feel so polished. That is a hard line to not cross sometimes, and hard to discern if you’ve been hovering over a piece for hours!
