Spook by Artgerm Spook by Artgerm
This image is used as the theme image of an upcoming horror magic show for a church's evangelistic event.

This is my first collaboration work with ukitakumuki during his internship at my agency. I asked him to visualize a haunted mansion for me so that i can paint a spectre in the foreground. The process was fun and Kai did a wonderful job in creating the spooky atsomsphere.

Background done in PS (Kai's prefered program), Spectre done in Painter (my prefered program).

My wonderful and nutty thoughts on this piece:

1) Both of you have used some amazing realistic texture in this piece, making it semmes like a photograph that has maybe been blurred, maybe becuase its on the crappy photo paper that smudges when you touch it.

2) I love the house. Can you say "The Ripper, England" anyone?

3) The shadow play effect is brilliant, and so is the light as it wraps around the form naturally. Who was your inspiration for the monstrosity?

4) I expect a lot more of work like this from either of you, and you must belive me when I say you dont want a pissed of Melissa with her scythe, two dragons and a suicidal boyfriend with nothing to lose at your heels.

Lovies Melissa and the gang.

yeah! this is great :)
the title caught my attention (heh), but it's the details i love about this.
the film grain, the brush strokes on the main subject... the lighting is very atmospheric also.

the text style/font used is great too, although at first i felt it was a bit flat i think it fits in perfectly - very balanced.


ps. the fact that my alias is 'thespook' has nothing to do with me adding this to my favorites. just thought that was worth mentioning.

the slight blur seems to give the image a more sinister quality.

The monious lighiting of the back grounds certainly does work well with your own shading skills :)

i thought the church didn't believe in ghosts. :confused:

but anyway....
that's lookin' hella SWEET.
Artgerm Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2004  Professional Digital Artist
Hee...that's exactly what the show slogan says : To scare the hell out of you..

fantastic job you both did on this one. I thoroughly enjoy this collobaration of yours. It looks like you both are branching out more, and it looks great. This looks like a great cover to a graphic novel.
aaapollo Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2004  Professional Digital Artist
the collab effort is evident in its splendor, the use of not only two styles, but two artists is really awsome. The spooks left hand side (his left) intigues me with the subtlety of colour and loosly defined form against his (relatively) brightly lit right hand side. ****
nai Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2004
Very awesome.
Wish I could have a chance to learn Painter, or better use myself with PS, unfortunately, I don't have much time for that. Or at least, won't with my studies.

Times like these that make me wish I chose to advance in visual arts.
mojaam Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2004
Nice, like the noise. Really goes with the dark creepy look of this.
