This model sheet of He-Pumpkin is my entry into Taylor White's group Halloween show, "October Shadows 2." The show is a collection of Halloween themed art by some amazing artists and will be on display at the private studio of 6 time Academy Award winner Rick Baker. The show runs from Oct. 13th through November 1st and do to the location, you need to make an appointment to see it if your interested. All the info can be found at Creature Features

The final piece is 15"x20" done in ink and marker on watercolor paper and will be for sale at the show and on the Creature Features website starting at 7:00pm p.s.t. on Oct 13th.

Damn man, you never seize to amaze and or inspire me.
These are great, I think some poses work a better than others (If i'm being honest (but I'm unemployed and a college dropout so what do i know?), but just incredible work.

I was at Nick the other, and met Ray, big guy, I think he worked with you boarding on Danny Phantom, he was really nice.

Also, I re-worked my Foster's character test, did a second pass, I posted it on my blog if, if you have a sec I'd love to know what you think.

Wow! What a way to celebrate Halloween!!!! I really love this character. The best pose is the one where he's cocking his "bat"-le axe with his left hand extending forth in full foreshortening.

Gorgeous, I'll tell ya!!
