Halloween Tricks by LaytonLegalLuke Halloween Tricks by LaytonLegalLuke
Something I did to kill time. Also I needed to do something that isn't just a color over of a sketch. I know it's not really Halloween yet, but think of this as an early picture xD

I tried doing the characters differently from the official style here; a little more like my sister's style. But also because I always viewed Halloween to be whimsical rather than scary.

By the way, thanks to everyone who recently watched me/posted a nice comment on my page; I really appresiate it :aww:

I really do like this style, it certainly does give Sissel more of a whimsical feel.

Don't worry, I don't normally change styles. Just wanted to do a once in a while sort of thing xD

Awesome Pic! I really like your cut-out style and the way you drew Sissel! It really puts me in the mood for Halloween... even thought it's a month and a half away. XD

Ooh, I love the way you have the bold colors stand out by having either crisp and clean shadows or a white backdrop behind them...I haven't figured out how to do that on GIMP yet. xD

Wonderful job! :D I also love the wrinkles and folds in the bandana on the cat! (Sissel, I think? Isn't he a cat sometimes?)

Thank you ^^ The white outlines I do manually; as in pen tool all around the character (Does GIMP have a pen tool?) As for the black shadows that's a Photoshop fx called drop shadow.

Errhhmmm...noooo That's not Sissel, that's another character. Sissel's the dude with the red coat and wacky hair (Sometimes he's a blue flame too)

Ooooooh, I thought Sissel was also a cat. *shot* I really should play this game. xD;

And yes, GIMP has a pen tool, but it's pretty difficult to use to outline works, there's no way to do a shadowy effect, or at least, I haven't found it yet.
