horror concepts

Hi everyone... well past couple of days I have been working on some invites for a relatives 21st.
His parents emailed me a while ago and I was a bit slack about it... and a few days ago they gave me a kick along... The 21st Party is Horror themed... I thought it would be fine...but when I got to it freaked out and realised my usual subject matter is not really gore and manly many monsters etc... sci-fi... not my usual thing!
ANyway I did alot of research and actualyl started to have heaps of fun...bit selfconcious about my images...but enjoyed it heaps ... The ideas they wanted was kind of kitche 50s horror movie sort of stuff... or like nightmare before christmas/ edward scissorhands kind of thing...
so the below pen sketches are my first finalised thumbnails... and then the pencil on grey paper r my final sketches (however have no text or colour in photoshop... i think when and if i do ad more colour and shadow it will be pretty simplistic)
The day he turned 21...!!!


swamp cyclops, xray man, severed head party...


cake eater!

Hey emily.
I reckon they're really cool. I especially like the first one. Its simple but really interesting - I looked at that one for the longest. it sits well on the page for some reason too.

Hey Emily,

Oh my god! So not Emily, but I don't think you need to be worrying because they came out great XD
I had a really bad day today and this really made me laugh and I feel much better! So thank-you :)

especially like the guy with the lazers coming out of his eyes and stuff. I can tell you enjoyed doing these! Nice work :)

I'm going to play around a bit with some photoshop colours and horror texts... but itd be good if they could narrow it down before I do any more work...
