Halloween WIP



  • Hi guys!

    I have a simple idea of mice trying to scare a cat. He is at home preparing his pumpkins and mice dress up in costumes and are trying to get into his house.

    This is the first I am trying to do it properly (value, colour decisions) so I am looking forward to your valuable comments and advice 🙂

    PS: I don't know yet if I am going to ink it and submit to monthly contest or just go with digital for my own purposes.

  • I went further. Perhaps its more readable now 🙂 Lets say its at value stage... If you have any advice for me, don't hesitate 😉

  • @aska Just be careful that the pumpkins closer to the window don't distract from the main focal point. They are not the main part of the story, the cat is.



  • @mf-james thanks you for your advice 🙂 It sounds good



  • Until I read your description, I didn't really know what was going on in this picture. I think it might be better to approach this from a different angle, and showing the mice inside and scaring the cat. Especially if this isn't going to be a comic or a storyboard and just a single illustration, you might want to skip to the punchline so that we know exactly what's going on. I love the idea, and it's such a cute idea! Can't wait to see how this progresses. 😃



  • @jbrannan hey, thanks for input 🙂 however i went quite far now and would prefer to make smaller changes, if possible 😉
    so if what i done below doesn't work (still a draft), perhaps i could put a sign on the right bottom, which will be pointing left and saying 'cat scare point' or smith like that. What do you think?
