Weekend Challenge – Halloween

Welcome to our scariest challenge to date! We think our students enjoyed this one! Our featured image is by Barbara Schunk and we love it. So simple, yet striking. You can see the full image at the bottom of the blog post. Barbara said …..

“I don’t always have the time to participate, but I always enjoy the weekend challenges – this one too! “Come in my dear” is my small creepy contribution to the Halloween challenge”

We have to give a special mention to Dinah Barker for her amazing costume and scary makeup below. Isn’t it wonderful! Well done Dinah for a fantastic image. Might be a brilliant photo to paint or draw from too!

We really hope that you all love viewing the artwork, don’t get too scared viewing them! We hope that everyone had a wonderful Halloween! Stay tuned for the next challenge tomorrow!

Decided to do my weekend challenge artwork on my face!

Hi, this was the only mildly “Halloweeny” drawing I did in the last week: Friday’s “ominous” Inktober doodle while watching ‘Sarah Jane Adventures’ with the kids.

I am loving these Weekend Challenges – they are so inspiring. Bringing a vampire bat with me this week (well, my version anyway) on the lookout for supper.
Sarah Egerton
For the weekend challenge, Halloween. Some time back I made this as a part of my assignment for D6 course. Wanted to share with you all. Thank you.

Just for fun, there’s a red(card) blood drop, a hand drawn pumpkin with the silhouette of a cat drawn in watercolour pencils. I’ve used a silver pen to draw the bats and outline the shapes in the blood drop. Foil card shapes and silver stars and Halloween stickers to finish off this piece of work.
Nina Phillips
Halloween challenge. Scared faces from assignment 6. Hidden these in the village as part of a pebble art group.
Rachel Pesterfield
Adjusted this today – originally for the children’s book illustration course. I added the centre shading and quote digitally to be extra Halloween-y.
Priscilla Hocking
‘Blue Moon, with Hat, Cat and Bats’. A just-in-time collage for the occasion: Halloween 2020.

OK I know it’s a chronic joke but I am near a beach in Spain and it gave me a chance to use a semi-transparent layer in GIMP…

I don’t always have the time to participate, but I always enjoy the weekend challenges – this one too! “Come in my dear” is my small creepy contribution to the Halloween challenge.
