Hi all
I haven't read this book either, but it is good they have titles in which you can conjure up a scenarios.
15min ink and pen/15min PS

This is my scenario: You are walking through the woods with that little old psychic lady from Poltergeist and she grabs your arm and says 'Oi something wicked this way comes'.
Little do you know this thing is rushing at!

I will edit this later and mention my FAvorites.

Photoshop, 1 hour 40 minutes.

Haven't read this book either, I'm afraid. Science fiction isn't really my bag.
  07 July 2004

Lots more about the book here

Teom-really nice as usual

DanubuKa- I really like the feeling of movement and the character

drawMonger-Really like the water color feel, did you do that part in painter?

Id really like some critques on this one

about 1 hour and 30 minutes in photoshop.

thebigxer: Looks good, the fuzzy foreground gives it a nice sensation of depth, and the red eyes a good focus. If you want some criticism though, I think it would look better if the horizon was curved the other way, as you are looking up towards the creature. Now it looks a little like it is crawling up from a hole or something.

drawMonger: Scary. Took me a few seconds to see the reflection.

I sort of vaguely remember being a kid and being totally scared of this movie. In retrospect I find it odd now to think that Pam Griere was the witch.. but at any rate I was totally freaked at how it was a Disney production too.

Ever since then oddly enough, I've had an aversion, much like Austin Powers to "Carnies" [little hands... eew].

anyway... Mr.Dark.

I'd like to have had more time to put a detailed carusell in but whatever.. just a sketch.

1.5 hours.

Well, I've never seen the movie and I've only read the first chapter of the book (if that) so I don't entirely know what it's about. This is just what naturally comes to mind when I think of the title.

Painter. Approx. 2.5 hours.

SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES; I took this photograph of my backyard through a glass window and this is what I got! I cropped it and used the PS Watercolor filter on it. It took only a few minutes. I call it Werewolf's Dream. Now I'll have nightmares again tonight. Eeks!

missed a couple, argh I am far too busy. I wish I had more time for this. Maybe I'll suspend my study for a few months to master the techniques some more.

anyhoo... I read the summary and made this. Seems to be a cool book to me.

the movie version of this book wasnt bad :O aklthough i havent read the actual book, i wonder if it compares or is a lot better than the movie? (which is usually the case:\ )

completely different interpretation here.. (:

30 minutes, photoshop & wacom

In Boston, the word "wicked" is slang for "very". So I'm thinking Something Wicked Awesome This Way Comes, or Something Wicked Big This Way Comes. I'll keep you posted how this all turns out. Ladycrowe - I think your character has that perfect air of mystery that fits the story well. Nice job.
