Muerte's Halloween 2005 by workshop Muerte's Halloween 2005 by workshop
Click for full view, please.

Hear ye, hear ye. I'm now finished with this wallpaper now. It sure took its while and it was a good thing I have some days off from school work. It took a couple of days to sketch and a some three days to color and clean up. Quinn is the young adult coongirl in the picture who is magically transformed to meet who ever is at the door. The scared kids are Collin (as Grim Reaper), Darius (as Boyscout), Sheana (as Cowgirl) and Celina (as a Pirate gal).

I want to thank the donators of the wallpaper war, who picked the costume and helped ~shivaesyke. I also want to thank Zorla for sparking the initial idea. And shoutouts go to ~ryalto, *breakbot, Elizar and everyone else who gave invaluable comments of it all.

I hope this'll satisfy your annual fanboi hunger for Quinn. So without further ado, click on for full view.

This piece is just mindblowing. The coloring and attention to detail is pure eye candy for me...and that kid in the grim reaper costume looks pretty lost in disbelief. :D

*Sigh* ...Hahhh. The sheer beauty of it. Night blends with the warm lights of a home to produce a stunningly realistic color scheme...

I dunno about "realistic" color scheme. But... yeah. Now in hindsight I think I failed a little bit with the color scheme, I should've balanced the red out a bit more from the sky in some way.

Thanks for liking it tho. :)

Absolutely awesome Spike!...I have to ask...How long does it take you to do a pic like this and what program do you use to color with?

This took a couple of days to color and I used Photoshop CS. :)

My process was this: Draw rough sketch, put on some colors (rougly), merge it all together, size it up and then start "painting" away.

Lovely job with this one! If I didn't think it was so perfect I would try and critique your picture, but I do think its perfects and Im having a hard time trying to find anything to say ;P

I guess all I can really say is great job and that I set it as my new wallpaper. ;)

Good picture, but the shadowing could use some more detail/correction, and the moon looks off.

Yeah, I could've been doing some more work on the shadows. But I was, as always, running out of time.

I'm not sure what you mean with how the moon looks off. I don't know if you mean it is bigger than it should be or if it doesn't look like the moon. But still, it is a fantasy picture after all. :3

It's more the sading, the rather spherical-ball look. The shadow/highlight is a bit extreme

This turned out awesome! I was really enjoying the colour tests for this. The final version turned out superb. I like how Quinn is sort of illuminated, fits her costume very well. A very cute costume that is too. I really love all the details in this, there's so much to look at (it's my wallpaper now ;) ).

Only thing that looks a bit awkward is Quinns legs and feet, they look sort of as if the left leg is a right leg and vice versa. Might be because of the angle of course.

That I did not notice, it might be the way I drew the knees... Guess I need to think about it the next time and actually use a reference.

Thanks for liking it. :)

Oh, so you did use the red tint! Awesome, that was one of my fave colour schemes! Really awesome wallpaper, I especially love the sky in the bg, & the candles, & Quinn's hair. Kudos for another fab wallpaper!

Wow!! This is quite a brilliant piece, and every detail is truly in the mood for Halloween!! :D

I am completely amazed with the coloring and depth of the background, and every other little thing. Plus, the CC characters as youngsters are so remarkably cute!! It's amazing they stick together over the years!! And finally, Quinn is really gorgeous. ^^

Happy Halloween! :pumpkin:
