DAY 13

I don't remember whose idea this image was-Miranda or Suzi I think-just sort of an offhanded do you think such and such would be too over the top?
So I gave it a go-I have done special lighting effects on the smple to give it mood-think...Blade Runner...
Thanks for supporting our blog hop, have a wonderful Holiday season and we wil see you soon.
And I heard him exclaim, in that dark Creepmas Night Scary Creepmas to all
And to all a good night...

Good Night all...

Day 12---its 12/12/12

Magical mystical month this with 12/12/12 It only happen ONCE in a century and the end of the Mayan Calendar 12-21-12 with lot's of specualtion-a 3 mile wide comet passed between Earth and the moon today so its a strange time to be celebrating the 13 days of Creepmas---
For today another bookmark and my last for this year---the most requested image I have ever done-you can't believe how many people have asked for her and here she is:

Its a very detailed image so you will probably be able to see it better later today on ETSY along with the secret EDT image.
Tomorrow I turn to THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS for my most conroversial image EVER! Don't miss it!

Blog Hop 10

I hope someone is keeping track in the daily contest wins-I have no idea if its Donna or Caroline but one fo them will take home the images they didnt win on Friday-the big prize goes to whomever got the most daily wins so it has to be neck and neck at this point.
I've saved up some really fun images for these last days so keep an eagle eye out for that EDT image.
I'm conflicted about which of two images for Day 10 but lets start the week off with a BANG---Here's SURPRISE!!!:\

Nothing Like a green Goblin popping out of your Creepmas Gift to get your heart pumping eh?
These silly guys are so much fun to do and I'm always surprised when someone else colours them how their expressions change.
I've recieved a lot of really nice compliments about how I breathe life into my charecters and I have to give the Thanks to all those years of Walt Disney and Warner Brothers Cartoons-those companies really showed the way to making cartoony charecters living and breathing entities.
When I was teaching art I always talked about "Line Vitality"-it's what makes a persons work LOOK like that eprsons work and what you have to capture in order to create images like they do-Ifind it very hard to draw Disney charecters yet I know people who can knock them out at the frop of a hat-it just doesn't fit my style but I love to look at what those artists and the Disney design people can do.
OK on to the hop-no smeared and smudged today but the Creepmas blog is still rolling along-SNS will be back tomorrow-----have fun at Gloria's.

Nine is one of those mystic numbers that shows up so often Cat o Nine Tails, Love potion number 9-Plan 9 from Outer space...

This is an odd day so Smeared and smudged will have new blog entries today-remember they are every other daythrough Dec 13....our hop and the Official Creepmas Blog Hop run through the 13th.
For today's new image I have a creepmas Jester---another image that could be usd pretty much all year depending on how he is coloured up!

Creepy Creepmas Jester will be available later today in my ETSY shoppe-now what else did he do for today?
Go FISH....
(LOL remember that? Do kid's still play FISH?)
The little pink reindeer is from Itkupilli-her grngy Fun Christmas pack I think-LOVE her digital decoupage stuff! Find her on Etsy and blogger.

Day 7-lucky or just Friday?

Hey Ho all-its the end of the FIRST week of the blog hop and this is middle day-six days behind us and six days to come.
Need Something Brilliant for Friday so lets have this image:
This is YOU WANT WHAT? my very annoyed Santa and is the very first thing I coloured with Spectrum Noir pens-I didnt even have a whole set yet so I was a bit limited on my colour choices.
I was so excited I had to share this image with my EDT and then swear them to secrecy so they have seen this one already.
Hope you have enjoyed seeing it=now hop on to GLORIA and enjoy the rest of the hop!
Do remember there are hops at Smeared and Smudged-there have been some wonderful projects over there and also the official Creepmas hop-handy badge buttons on the sidebars to go visit them!
The mystery image is out there and both new images will be at my ETSY shoppe later today.
OH, BTW the YOU WANT WHAT Digi comes in 2 versions one with the black starry background and one without-you get BOTH versions when you buy the image.

Day 6---what will it bring???

So you've arrived at me from either intent or from the Creepmas Hop. I am the beginning blog for the Rick St dennis Creepmas Blog hop which runs the same 13 days as the official Creepmas blog hop-theroll forour blog is on my sidebar so if you want tohop our blog now go for it-Lots of art and creative creepiness-just be sure to come back to me and then go visit Aunty Donut next.
Aunty is also a very creative lady.
On my blog today I am rolling out a new image called The CREEPMAS Party Dress.

In the tradition of "I got Decoratin to do" and "Let's have reindeer for Creepmas" this image features one of my bug eyed sub-humanoids in her Holiday best off to slug back a few eggnogs and maybe a few fellow party goers as well.
She will be available later today along with the treasure hunt Image.
Have fun hopping along-we're not quite halfway thru the 13days pleanty of thrills and chills yet to come.

Blog Hop Day 5

I have two images for you today BOTH SNOWMEN---The first haunted me because COLD TO TROT kept running thru my head-soI did a murderous snowman as a bookmark or tag to share with you.

They make all those killer snowman films and they are never very scary-don't know why-I certainly wouldn't want to meet this bloke in a snowy field.
BTW we've changed the way we do the product listings so the samples are up whenever but they won't be listed till probably 10am or so pacific time in the ETSY shoppe-this in an effort to make it harder to find the secret images.
Now after I did this image I thought what if a killer hid the body in a snowman but there was an unseasonal thaw OR what if a monster snowman ATE somebody and the body thawed out thru the snow-person???
Nasty, wet corpse; hence my 2nd offering for today:

Sorry I got carried away with those Rhinestone swirly thingies-
So thats the two images I am rolling out and somewhere there is another-go find it and then scurry back and let me know what and where and wine all 3 images-not a bad mornings work eh?
From me to Gloria on our Hop-Aunty Donut on the 12 days hop but hop ours first, then smeared and smudged and then pop over and take a look at their hop properly some very strange and creative folks over that way.
Have fun and play nicely...

Day 4 - Creepmas Blog Hop

So far so good eh?
I've had a wonderful time thus far and seems like so has the design team despite how fast they are scrambling to keep all the blogs up, posted and running.
No Smeared and Smudged today since they are on alternates so you can enjoy our hop and the official Creepmas Hop.
I decided we needed some humor today so I am offering SURRENDER RUDOLPH:

This is another of those images that was rolling around inside my head and quite frankly it looks much more blended in person-I dont know what happened with the scan.
Reindeer Chili anyone?
Don't forget the daily prize and the ATC giveaway contest (Hazel)-so much more yet to comein the next 9 days-it will be Christmas before we know what hit us...
Happy Hopping!
Donna M. was yesterdays winner so we have had a differant winner each day-how cool is that?

Creepmas BLog hop Day 3, Monday

Congrads to Caroline our daily winner from yesterday-she won the 2 Randi Dandi images and the creepmas snowman greeting digi.
Hope you are having fun and enjoying all the creepy wonderful projects and posts-there will be lots today since its a "ON" day at Smeared and Smudged as well as ours and the official Creepmas much to see and take inspiration from.
I am still undecided as I sit her today about which Image to roll out for you???
Especially since I have Santa, Snowman and Reindeer over on my regular blog.
So maybe a little something ANgelic?

This is Creepmas Angel BUTCH-he has an attitude and a slight whiff of sulpher about him.
You will notice when you look at the sample image in the Etsy shoppe he was drawn with a somewhat raggedy halo. Check it out HERE.
It's a bit hard to fussy cut and I actually goofed when Iprinted the digi and lost part of the halo so I just made him a gold paper and rhinestone one on the card-I do think the Tatty one is more interesting however.
Butch is once again coloured with Spectrum Noir pens in warm tans and yellow, flesh tones and some greys for shading-his hair is mostly from the Golden Brown Palatte.
I think its sort of a cute image for a boy/male card-I like his big old dumb feet and the spiders in his armpits-I know teenagers like that...LOL
Anyway, I had done him up in pale flesh tones and then decided he needed to be more creepy to I just toned him with greens (LG 1 thru 5) and also gave him a washover with CT 1 and 2 yellows-I like the effects-sort of billious and sickish---I love layering with the Spectrum Noirs-the colours are clean and the transparency is such that one can get a really good graphic novel or animation feel by suing layering techniques.
I am also getting used to the lifting qualityin the lighter pens-when you glaze a darker colour part of the effect is tolift some of the pigment and that helpsthe blend but in my case it also helps make a change of mind much easier when one is working in pastel tones especially.
Have fun today, find that prize image and we'll see you tomorrow with lots of new creepiness to share.

Creepmas Day 2 of 13

Thanks to all our visitors yesterday and for all the great comments that were shared.
Also congrads to the winner of the daily prize VICKY F. and the newsletter image prize on Facebook ELENOR S.-these two ladies will both recv a free copy of yesterdays ALICE digi rolled out by Monique and since my digi was a freebie they will get a copy of THE PRINCE OF CHRISTMAS which appeared on my regular blog-ladies please contact me at for your prize as usual!
I am rolling out TWO images today-new Christmas gals from my RANDI DANDI LINE.
The first is ASTARRA-she is also BTW the symbol on my EDT badges for 2013.

Astarra is ready for the Holiday parties with her two tone hair colour and starry gold jewelry-hopefully she won't be outdone by showing up at a party with TRIESTE

Trieste volunteered at the Hairshow and was done up like a Christmas tree so here she is ornaments ready and off to her various holiday events.
Both were enormous fun to colour and I am gratified by how popular the Randi Dandi line has been-I started out with about 20 designs and have many more than that now for just about every occasion and style.
Have fun hopping today I managed to do our hop path and Smeared and Smudged yesterday but today I intend to go for all three blog hops-remember to comment if you are so inclined and have a wonderful time!
St dennis blog hoppers go on to GLORIA here!
Creepmas 2012 Blog Hoppers go on to Aunty Donuts HERE.
