Afraid of the Dark

Creeping closer and closer to Halloween night, we are.  What’s out there?  What’s in the closet?  What’s in the basement?  Darkness.

Happy Halloween!

Below is a quick digital painting tutorial at it’s most basic.  Quite traditional, were it not for the Wacom stylus and tablet.  This piece could just as easily been created with acrylic or oil paint on canvas.  All I’ve  done here is transfer traditional painting skills into Photoshop via my Mac.  Digital work need not appear slick and shiny. You maintain control over the medium.  Do not be afraid to give it a try.

My world is a wonder of visual candy and foreboding shadow shapes vying every waking moment for my full attention.

  1. Amazing – I would have thought this was oil or pastels – it’s lovely and really captures that not quite rational fear of the dark.
