Scary Stories by kris-wilson Scary Stories by kris-wilson
Quick Stephen Gammell rendition done with black acrylic on a 9 foot slab of the driest of drywall. It was a narrow hallway, this was the closest I could get to snagging a photo of the full thing. PLEASE FORGIVE ME

Looks really cool! And honestly, I think the split-view kind adds to it.
I can't wait to have a house of my own where I can paint/draw/art on the walls!

I always love how scary Stephen Gammell's drawings were in the Scary Stories books. In my opinion, there's nothing scarier than that. I've been waiting for a horror movie to have just as scary of visuals and atmosphere as these drawings give

I loved these books. I recently saw a reprint of "More Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" and it had shitty illustrations compared to these.

That picture always scared me as a kid. I can't tell you how many nightmares I had of it. Very nice remake though. :3

You might try ink if you make another one like his so you can get the neat gradient.
