Pumpkin Things - Helen has been busy

Helen Cullum sent me these two wonderful projects this morning using 2 of my new digis the Pumpkin King and Pumpkin Demon...I guess you can tell I love charecters with Pumpkins for explanation, just do!
The Pumpkin King and Pumpkin Demon were both done for the same reason-it was all about the poses...after being in the arts for more than 40 years and drawing my while life I still learn and refine everyday and often set myself challenges like difficult poses or complicated costumes. I draw from my mind when I do people and charecters-I don't look at a model or picture and although I know there are flaws and mistakes in my anatomy (and that of my drawings LOL) I know when it feels right to me. I decided to show Helens full cards first and then I will show the detail shots. Here's Helens product list-theres lots of stuff in these two creations!!! Papers My minds eye - Halloween Sparkles Images coloured with promarkers pumpking demon labels8 die cut coredinations TH distress range with Design objectives embossing folder other card/paper, dewdrops and ribbon from stash pumpkin embellishment - homemade pumpkin king (think) go-create die additional paper - Authentique - Glowing dewdrops, cobweb fabric and crown charm from stash tassel and flower homemade sentiment - computer generated
I love both of Helen's cards but especially the way she coloured the pumpkin demon-the glowing lining on his cape is working for me. Hope you've enjoyed seeing these cards-My EDT has been working hard to turn out samples and I am hearing from some of you that you apprecciate the oloured samples because my drawings an be a little more complicated to colour-I certainly appreciate the samples because I really enjoy seeing what otherv people do with my work! Almost time for the 31 days of Halloween hop at Smeared and Smudged-I'm looking foreward to that one...
