Cryptkeeper Colored by RadiusZero Cryptkeeper Colored by RadiusZero
Heh, finally got done with coloring this. ^_^ I took some liberty in giving the Cryptkeepr red eyes. I thought it popped out more as well made this image more uncomfortable to look at. :devilish:

Lately I've been trying to improve my work, especially as the conventions approach and I *really* need to make money since student loan lenders are already on my back. :/ I hope this summer will be good to me and that people like my work enough to buy it. :( I'll also be working on a shop for my website, just for people who can't attend the cons.

Many thanks to all the peeps who've offered me suggestions on areas I need improvement in. Thanks to Cari for color contrast input and Grahams for offering tips on how to improve this particular image. Also, thanks to everyone here commenting/faving/browsing :meow:

wow.... really cool :D

:mwahaha: Awesome!!!! The lighting and the textures make this piece, and the way you've portrayed the Crypt Keeper is insane. It sends chills and is nicely nostalgic at the same time.

I have seen the show and the movies (awesome incarnate), but my first exposure, if I haven't already told you, was the Tales from the Crypt pinball machine. It is still one of the best machines I've played to this day :D

raaar. This is awesome. I love it and I think/cross my fingers that this will hit the mark with your upcoming conventions ;)

Surprise surprise. Not the grrn guy I'd been expecting!

I love the mix of cel shading technique with texture work in here, sure makes for a nice effect :D And the fact you didn't block the silhouette's colour in and then shaded it, but that you only selected the highlights on his body and coloured them in. I the outcome is me feeling he is coming out of the shadows, contrary to just a character on a dark background.
Also, the contrast, you really nailed it. The only thing I really don't know if you were going for is the colour pink. But as long as you've stil got this in layers, I think it won't be real trouble changing it (unless you really were going for pink).

Oh that's brilliant!
Makes me think of an Iron Maiden album cover for some reason.
I think the red eyes work really well, are you allowed to have a creepy demony gatekeepy thingy WITHOUT red eyes? I'm not sure you are.
The lightings sweet as well, liking the candle too :D

That guy used to scare the crap out of me as a kid. As I got older, several things happened to change this, one of them being the realization that he speaks in puns/bad jokes, and I love me a good, eye-rolling pun. :XD:

The original comics still squick me out, though. >.>

hehe ... PINK...................... It's the pink Cryptkeeper. I feel less afraid. Shortly it will be dawning little sweat pants that say "PINK" on the butt. And a tube top. [which would be horrific.]
RadiusZero Featured By Owner May 24, 2010
I imagine he's wearing SPARKLY pink sweat pants. :D

BTW, does it really show pink in your monitor? should I make it browner then?
blix-it Featured By Owner May 24, 2010
haha, it really is pink. A very lovely dusty rose. XD

Oh man. I'm flashbacking now...flaaashbacking~~ I can't believe I'd hide behind the couch right before he popped up. I was such a wuss.

Good luck on the student loans. I'm positive you'll make plenty of money to pay 'em back!
