Happy Halloween!


This is a rush job. I did it this evening at 6 PM, right away as the idea clicked in my head. It took me less than a half hour. LOL Normally, I would draw something on this 7' x 4.5' black piece of cloth, and it would be of pastel. When I work with pastel, it would take me a couple of days to finish it, as I would be forming the scene as I go along. But I didn't have much time because of so much things going on. I was not going to make any decoration at all, until the idea came to me. So, here it is. Tadaaaaah. LOL


Happy Halloween to all.

Note: Since I rushed this post last night, I thought not necessary anymore to put in detail the materials I used in the first photo, however, I think, I need to do that now.

First photo was made of fake spider web, plastic blow-up skeleton and black cloth. All I did was tack the black cloth on the wall, hang the skeleton and drape the spider web over. Nothing was drawn here. I simply put them all together...3 materials and some small spiders not visible in picture.

Second photo was an old Halloween prop I made in 2005; made of same black cloth; and figures and scene were drawn with pastel. This took me a couple of days to finish.

Sorry folks!!!!!

Ang daya mo Mari he-he....! Ba't hindi ko rin kaya naisipan yun....! Anyways, iilan lang naman ang bata dito sa neighborhood ko kaya hindi ko kailangang itago ang mga chocolates dahil siguradong may matitira pa rin para sa akin....! =D


Ba't kaya hindi rin to gayahin ng mga pinoy ano....? Mag-trick or treating ang mga bata o di kaya scary costume party for kids.... Para naman maiba ng kunti, hindi lang puro christmas caroling palagi.... =)

Mari said...

pepe,
Madaya ba? Utakan lang...LOL Natira yung chocolates ko...bwahahahaha! he he he Hirap nito baka lalong masira ang mga ngipin ko. LOL
