Some of the layer masks made by students learning Photoshop can be pretty scary. And then there are some that are so good it’s… scary. Like any veteran designer will tell you, most of the software skills used in the industry require a lot of practice.
And with that, dear followers, another Inktober draws to a close. Thanks for all the likes, comments and shares for the past 31 days. It’s a real pleasure to carve out the time to do what I like to do in this way. Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
Time to bid farewell to another year of Inktober. Thanks for watching, liking and sharing this year. Keeps your eyes open for Inklings because you’ll never know when they’ll pop up. Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
Consider yourself lucky if you were able to go trick-or-treating without the threat of getting your candy stolen by older kids. I think it started out mostly as an urban myth, but the thought of it happening made Halloween night a little more frightening. I remember the year my friend’s candy bag became the bullies’ prize. After running home, the rest of us were asked to ‘share’ our cornucopia of candy with our less fortunate friend. Maybe that’s why we always felt so compelled to eat as much of our candy as we could in one night.
Boris Karloff as Frankenstein’s monster. Hope he finds some coffee.
It’s interesting how many news stories center around things that happened in the past. It’s a disgusting tactic that is used to discredit and undermine the worthiness of a candidate. Instead of being disappointed with the targeted candidate, I reach a new level of disdain for the media and the campaigns that dig up the bones. Have we really regressed as a society this much?
When I think of Count Dracula it’s hard to shake the hypnotic image of Bela Lugosi as the famous vampire. Decades of vampire costumes seem to be based on this iconic depiction. Though Nosferatu was the first film to bring Bram Stoker’s mysterious character to life, the Hollywood debut of Dracula hit the big screen in 1931.
Give the dog a bone. This old man came rolling home.
Like the fading daylight of autumn, another fun-filled Inktober draws to a peaceful close. Better let the sketchbook and sharpies get some shut-eye before the next inkling. Thanks for all the follows, likes, comments and shares over the past 31 days. It’s rewarding and encouraging to know that there’s an audience for my random illustrations and observations. Please be sure to visit Inklings again. Until next time, have a safe and Happy Halloween!
As far as traditions go, I actually enjoy the creativity of carving pumpkins. I just really dislike the tedious and grueling seed-ectomy.
I remember trick-or-treating as a kid and hoping like heck that I wouldn’t get peanut butter taffy. It was the Tootsie Roll of 1981.
