Drawing a Creepy, Faded Picture


We are well and truly in the spooky season now: the supermarkets are full of Halloween tat, it’s Beach of the Dead in Brighton on Saturday and I walked past two girls dressed as zombies at Brighton station today.

To mark this, I decided to draw a slightly creepy face:

I then thought it might be quite fun to convert that into what looks like an old, faded picture that might be found on the floor of an abandoned mansion.

This was performed through some background brush painting, some picture smoothing, pattern overlays and brightness/contrast/hue/saturation/colour balance modifications:

Et voila:

An Odd Old Drawing

Not sure where those odd lines to the right came from, mind. Odd.

Happy Spooky Season!
