Hey everyone,
it's been a few months since I've been on here since I have a young baby at home and have not been able to find the time to draw. I've been working on this one for a few months now off and on and finally finished it over the weekend. It's 16 X 20 on Bainbridge board, drawn completely freehand and is a mix of watercolor, grayscale markers and pencils. My initial idea was all B&W but changed my mind and added very subtle color to try to make it pop. Any feedback would be great. Thanks!

Hi Jen,
the skull was actually not intentional at first(kinda scary). I noticed it right away after working on that section and thought that I should leave it alone since it was subtle and spooky at the same time. I usually do hide the names of my two sons in my drawing though. Thanks Jen and AFM159 for your comments.

Oh this is good. The over all piece just puts me in mind of the ol thrillers. I think you've done a great job.

I only see one spot that kinda bothers me, but it may be just me. The girls lower leg seems a bit short. but otherwise it's great!
