Trick-or-Treat

witch_pen_color
I did this earlier this week as a pen-and-ink with watercolor demo for an illustration techniques class (with apologies to Jack Unruh whose technique was the thrust of this assignment). Great fun, and a lucky match for this week's theme.
Happy Halloween!

Great Illo. Nice use of pen & ink and watercolor. Reminds me of a great illustration for the cover of the "Screwtape Letters."

Incredible. I know that anyone in one of your classes will come away a changed artist. I love the technique in this and the subtle shadings. Is that pumpkin soup?

Rick Lovell said...

Hah! It's WAAY better than pumpkin soup...it's BEER. The assignment was to do artwork for a beer label. The fictitious brand is called "Witches Brew".

Inspired. Love the portrait that tapers into the smoke. I love the cross hatching and colorwork in the face. Terrific work.
