Illustration Friday: Smitten 2


While on his way to his appointment to smite Clyde McDeadsoon, Death passed a small yard sale and was smitten with a shiny toaster. He got a killer deal.

Love this! I thought perhaps Death was also smitten with it's own reflection... Your Gallery O'Terror paintings are great too, looks like Halloween has got you all inspired :)

Such a well done character. I like toast too...

Sweet texture.

This is incredible, Guy. I love every line of it. The tattered ends of the robe are great. One of my favorite Halloween-themed blog posts I've seen in the last month.

I know why he has a shiny new toaster. New toasters are in your subconscious because your's burns the second batch.

You really do have Halloween on the brain, don't you? THis is great. I like Clyde's last name...athough maybe his first name should've been Willibe (pronounced "Will I Be"). I like the splotchty eerie background. You truely have talent, Guy. By the way, there's an invite on my blog (illo friday post) for you.

My coolness doesn't even come close to yours. . . Let me bask in your ghoulishness. . .

Maybe someday.

This reminded me so much of Terry Pratchet's death character. I love this. :) Season appropriate as well.

I've featured you on my Illustration Friday picks of the week at my arts forum, Musemart. :)
