Hi My Dear Friends:
This is our new Happy Halloween 2008 Pin-up.
We did this image as a continuation of the last pin-up Jolly Halloween 2007.
This new character, is from Jolly Halloween family, actually she is her cousin. Hahahaha.
These witch's characters are from a series of pin-up that we have developed.
I did the penciled sketch, scanned it and started the coloring and rendering on Photoshop.
The main idea is show a very updated women, in a sexy appeal pinup, but with some details from the old fashioned pinup style.
We looked for a very balanced color scheme in this image, to evoke a halloween's mood, I mean some dark colors.
Dark colors, very often, are applied to create a scary environment, but we work on them to make something like a sweet palette to a cute image.
We also worked on texture, we create different kinds of brushes for this image, specially for background and other details.
As always, there are details hidden in the image concerned to its conceptual art.
The first sketches were different than the last version. Some steps and details from its production can be reached at the link below.
The job is not finished yet according to our standards, but if someone wants print of it, they will be available on 11x8 and 11X17 inches.
I hope all of you enjoy very much.
Cris de Lara.
