I Dig You

Jumping the gun on Valentines Day cards. This is October Thirteen and her new undead beau, Doug. (Every day is Halloween in my heart.)

I refine the sketch in Photoshop and build up values before going to full color.


Happy New Year and early Valentines Day! Hope you dig up what you’re looking for this year!
