"By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes." Cooger & Dark's Pandemonium Shadow Show has come to visit Houston for this "skyline" and "circus tent" prompt page.
I am super pleased with how the carnival tent and spooky lightning hand came out, less so with everything else, and don't even ask me what happened to the skyline (sorry Houston). Basically, fuck night scenes and foliage. I don't think I'm digging the ink with colored pencil combination, but my black pencil is not black (?), so it may just be the stark contrast.
Colored pencil isn't my preferred medium so this was a trial. The tooth of this paper is weird and I don't think I can go back into this one without ripping it, so I think she's done and I'll try some new tactics on the next one.

Inspiration: 🎬 The 1983 movie poster for Disney's "Something Wicked This Way Comes," which was a pretty good adaption of the Ray Bradbury book of the same name. It starred Johnathan Pryce, who you might remember loathing as the High Sparrow on Game of Thrones, and Jason Robards, who you might remember from.... marrying Lauren Bacall?
