Okay, I've been doing entirely too much talking lately! More pure drawing stuff to come. When I picked this black and white blog template I didn't realize I would be posting all black and white artwork. Looks pretty dull, but I tried a bunch of colorful templates on for size and they didn't look or feel right.
This is an interesting piece by Stevan Dohanos, where he walks you through his process as he draws a house that's supposed to look haunted.
I don't know about you, but this is the kind of thing that happens to me all the time: the director will issue me a scene, and say, "yeah, and when you draw this house in the background, make it look haunted". Yeah, I think, got it. Then I start to draw in the house, thinking it's going to be easy, and then I realize: I never thought about what makes a house look haunted, and I actually have no idea how to do it.
