View Full Version : Want Some Candy Little One?

10-02-2009, 03:02 PM
Hi everybody! Just a little Happy October and some Halloween fun! My son's birthday is right before Halloween and he wants to have (another) Halloween birthday party. I made this today, under his guidance of course, as the invitation to his party. The finished version has the party info on the headstones. It also say's "It Will Be A Scream" in ghostly letters. He wanted it much more horrific but I told him that nobody would come if it was to scary..lol! :D:D

I totally thought that too. Wonderful Dad you are. This really like a party host at then entrance says "Come in, we are all waiting for you for the party !!" Scary and fun at the same time. :)

This is wonderful. I can see that your son is as blessed to have you as you are to have him; what fun to share things like this with him.

In keeping with the subject, I suppose I can say this is a Boootiful card.

and accept this ghoulish offering. Wonderfully spookyspooky ...

hooded horror of the night. So very scarily painted! :eek: :)

Evart, thank you for the great comment. I would be honored to be part of the Candy Corn Empire...lol!:)

Thanks for checking it out Andro!:)

Thanks Byron! Yes... Take it! Take it! Just one never hurts (well maybe from this guy)!:):rolleyes:

Thank you for the great comment Mair! Yes, Candy Corn is a staple this time of year!:)

Thank you Coops! Yes, children hyped up on sugar dressed as vampires, werewolves, swinging light sabers, swords and animal claws at each other... Where is the tylenol! I will snap a pic or two! Thank you!:)

Don't fall for it mannafig! The candy is only a ploy to entice you in! Thank you for the comment! :)

Thank you Caesar! I also love Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas. My wife thought his hands looked a lot like Dr Suess' The Grench's hands. I guess he is a collection of many recognizable characters. Thank you!:)

Thank you Hally! I like a little scare this time of year!:)

Thank you Alexandra! I will save a Candy Corn just for you!:)

Great work Sketch, I saw this one in the Gallery when I first logged on, the kids will love it. My son's birthday is on Halloween.
Hope the party goes well.

Great Job! ;) :D

10-03-2009, 07:16 AM
Hah! My children would be terrified.....seriously, this would give my 5-yr-old bad dreams. Looks like neither of mine will be the sort of kid to stay up late, eating ice cream and watching horror movies with their Mom the way that I did with my Dad.

Sketch, it's a wonderful painting and fun as can be. Hope you have great party.

10-03-2009, 07:35 AM
Oooh, scary image indeed! Very good!

10-03-2009, 10:04 AM

10-04-2009, 02:44 PM

I don't mean to deliberately keep this thread going but I want to thank everyone SO MUCH for your awesome comments on this! Artrage is truly a digital antidepressant!

Thank you;


Thank you all for your wonderful comments... They really made my day!:)

Great work as always!! Now I can't wait for Halloween:)

10-05-2009, 05:48 AM
Oh Sketch I just love this! Halloween has always been my favorite holiday, and a big to-do in my family (our house looks absolutely haunted every year :p) and this has just put me in the mood to watch scary movies and eat candy and make some Halloween treats! It's the perfect blend of fun and playfulness with the addition of the candy, but eerie and dark with the moody colors and the wonderful ghoul here. And as always, it's executed my your artistic master hands! Well done! :D

10-27-2011, 02:08 PM
A timely reminder from the past, one I liked a lot then and still like now. :)

10-27-2011, 02:11 PM
