CE - Kelly's Halloween by TrainerKelly CE - Kelly's Halloween by TrainerKelly
The time of year has come when nightmares seem to come alive in the streets! Kids and teens go door to door shouting "trick or treat"! Houses become covered with cobwebs, ghosts, zombies, and more! For this one night, the last day of the month, people can be anything in the world, living, dead, or even non-existent! This day is Halloween and it's a holiday many people enjoy.

In the honor of this day, I present to you possibly one of my better pieces in my gallery - Kelly's Halloween. Which in short is my Pokémon OC, Kelly (who should not be confused with me - I don't draw my anime forms the way she looks, both boy and girl), surrounded by mostly ghost Pokémon, with the exception to her Gardevoir and Pikachu.

I had the concept in my head for months, however I was reluctant to go ahead with it with the fear of horribly messing up. Of course, when I told my friend about it and they teased me for my slowness (since I never seem to get anything done on time), I went ahead and began doing it.

The concept was simply Kelly dressed up as a witch (in an outfit loosely based on Mismagius), surrounded by mostly ghost Pokémon. The main exceptions were to her Pikachu and Gardevoir, who are typically permanent members on her party. Spiritomb and Haunter were final editions to this image - they weren't originally going to be in the image.

The picture first started with a simple layout plan, which I used to figure out the placement. Then I went to go draw a failed version of what you see, which I scrapped for reasons explained in the artists comments of that picture.

After lots and lots of sketch placements, I finally came out to the final product. I spent about two and half days CGing the main part of the picture, than half a day on the background.

Mismagius, Spiritomb, Hitomoshi, Drifloon, Gardevoir, and Pikachu are all Kelly's Pokémon, which are indicated by their black bows. Haunter is the only one that isn't Kelly's. =P In fact, it's a random Haunter. My friend suggested I put it in, so I did. XD

Most of the time I worked on this, I listened to Tobuscus's Let's Plays of Halo Reach and Fallout: New Vegas. >_> Go look up TobyGames on Youtube. The commentary is hilarious. =D If I wasn't listening to those, I was listening to Halloweenish songs, including "This is Halloween" from the Nightmare Before Christmas (mostly the KH1 BGM music and the demo version) and "Magic Melody" by DHT. I think brokenCYDE also made their way into my listening, but I don't remember.

I'm quite content with the way this picture came out (though, Kelly's position is a bit odd, considering the rest of the characters probably should be making a semi-circle, but oh well...IT LOOKS GOOD ANYWAY). I like how Haunter, Spiritomb, Mismagius, and Hitomoshi came out, especially since I hadn't drawn them before this picture. (Though, I did practice them all before I actually drew them, but I didn't practice a whole lot).

I LOVE THE WAY I DID THE SHADOWS ON MISMAGIUS. THOUGH, YOU CAN'T SEE THEM ON THIS PICTURE BECAUSE OF THE OVERLAY. FFFFF. So I uploaded a version without the overlay and slight fog to my scraps which you can view here.

I'm not too fond of the shadows I did on everything else. I was having a bit of trouble figuring out the light source (it was easy with Mismagius, since I knew it had the most light). >_> And after the awesomeness of Mismagius's, I didn't really have the motivation to do the same awesomeness on everything else...OTL

I really, really, really like the eye make up Sparkle Squeak and Gardevoir are wearing...>_> Dunno why. I also love the bow placement on Hitomoshi! >w< It's so cute!

I actually finished this picture on the 27th. And man, was it bothering me to put it up. =P I'm so glad I could put it up now.

This is my contest entry to #Pokemon-Oc-Adventure. Which I'm definitely excited about!

It's technically the day before Halloween (October 30th) where I live, but I know that there are some places in the world that are on October 31st right now, which is why I am posting this up the day before Halloween in my time.

...I think this is my most Pokémon filled picture I've submitted yet. =P It beats out a sketch I did by one...>_>

Its when female tries to scare someone who she loves, chases him and when she already catches him and when he thinks she's going to eat him or something like that... she kisses him.

I love the mysteriously awesome [or awesomely mysterious?] atmosphere of this pic :aww: I'm glad you decided to add Spiritomb and Haunter after all, they fit well with the group and I think they make the scene look more 'complete' than if there were empty spaces instead. I like Gardevoir's make up too. On a side note, my OC and your OC could exchange a high five as they both happen to own Drifloon and Hitomoshi :XD:

=D Thank you! <3 That's what I was going for (something with creepy/mysterious/halloweenish).

=] Thanks. The spots actually weren't originally going to be blank, but it just happened that Spiritomb and Haunter worked better than the Pokémon I originally planned. =P

>w< Thanks.

=o That would be quite awesome, I must say. =DD
