I love how your typical Halloween combo of a pumpkin and a cat is expanded by some lovely mushrooms, as well as some autumn foliage. I immediately felt like creating a non-card project with an image like this, and started acting accordingly: I printed the digi a bit larger than I usually would if it was for a card. I then went to work with my coloured pencils, colouring the motif with warm colours. I decided to stick with a natural colour scheme, and I must say I'm quite satisfied with the result, except for the giant pumpkin: no matter how I tried, I didnt seem to get the shading right. As a resukt, it looks like a huge orange blob rather than a textured vegetable, but I hope that this can be balanced out by all the other details that I managed to get right.
The cat was a bit tricky to do, too. Of course, it had to be black to match the Halloween pumpkin, but I tried to add a bit of colour with the soft pink ears and green eyes. So far, so good. The other details, however, turned out to be too tiny, and while you may recognize the nose under a microscope, the little vampire teeth became completely invisible amongst the black fur.
