(And also some other print sizes) Loves and shares would be very appreciated
This of course also goes for the rest of my still tiny store over there
I wanted to make a simple Halloween themed CSS. I ended up doing a crazy ass detailed scenery illustration
I don't know how, but that kinda just hapened
At first there were the hills, then I started doing a castle, this is actually the second castle. The first one sucked. Took me some time to get a style for this, tried several raster effects before ending up with gradients over everything.
GRADIENT ALL THE THINGS
After that, I moved on to creating the graveyard and the trees on the right. Added some more tiny thills and fog in front of the castle… actually added in the moat
Crazy lighting inside the castle… trees on the left. Sometime in between things I created the moon, moved it to a different spot later one… last main thing was the pumpkins and the fences around them. SO MANY THINGS!
I added a lot of detail
Again, that just happened, wasn't planned at all
For inspiration I was mainly browsing dA constantly and looked at a whole lot of artworks
Can't put my finger on one or a few in special, too much awesome stuff
Basically everything you see I created from scratch in Illustrator. The only thing I drew on paper beforehand was a rough layout of the castle, how many towers and where etc.. But I didn't trace that sketch, just had it in front of me
Of course, since I wanted the whole thing to look kinda quirky and not perfect, working without sketches was okay anyway
Um, think that's it?
Hope you like it

I had no intention to log in today at all, since I'm 1) on vacation and 2) stuck in New Jersey with a generator
So chances were really slim I would notice anything
Only logged into skype to let my mom know I'm okay and was then hinted at the DD
So, I may not reply soon to any comments left on this deviation, but I will try
