Chickengirl Comics Presents...A Halloween Special (+IF: Spooky)

I was going to wait and post these on Tuesday instead of pages from my sketchbook project. But since this week's illustration friday topic is "spooky," and I haven't participated in IF in a very very long time, I thought I would post it now. Plus, I am eager to get these pages out there :-)

This was fun and a good exercise since I hardly ever touch photoshop and this is definitely a different technique than what I'm use to. I'm also happy to write a little story for Chicken Girl and Rooster Boy that is more fictional rather than based on real life. I hope I've got more stories like this in me.

I immediately loved the orange! What a special treat for us Chickengirl comic fans! You're a wonderful storyteller, and I like how even though it's fiction their personalities carried over. Your expressions are great!

I'm sure you have so many stories in you (fictional and otherwise) - I can see you starting a really popular indie comic!

I like this orange-y Halloween concoction you've whipped up :) Of course even though it's a bit different than your usual pieces, it still has "Chickengirl" all over it! Your style is always amazing :)
