Name: Come With Me
It's Halloween and when I think of it, I always get this feeling of a rift opening up to another dimension where everything is Halloween. This image depicts the face of this dimension attempting to lure the viewer in during the short window between the two worlds is open.
I use a full digital arsenal in my work, but most of it is off the backbone of traditional media (pencil, paint) I learned as a student. This piece is largely standard digital painting with digital elements sprinkled in.
In short, Halloween. It's simply my favorite time of the year and it always inspires me in so many ways. I also grew up with characters like Spawn, Deadpool, and Ninja Turtles. Many of these characters possessed over the top styling and exaggeration, often coming out of the shadows. I've always had an affinity for dark menacing characters (or antiheros) that blur the line between what's considered good or evil.
