Making Hallowe'en pt. 3

Poe, paints, pictures.

Added whites and highlights to Miss Madeline Usher this afternoon.

I love the cartoonish, Blaine Gibson/Disney caricature look. The jaw, the brows/cheekbones, the teeth, nothing is in proportion, but its unrealism is what makes it alive, you know?

I thought a blue light might look neat too:

Another angle:
I had to add some dreary bloodshotedness (at one time not a real word, but now it is) to her eyes.
I think when the basic black and white figure/set is done, the red tinge of the eyes
might draw the viewer's, um... vision.
Besides, something about the way I made the eyes causes me a giggle.
I hadn't planned on it, of course, and it's not exactly the same, but there's an odd similarity:

Not exactly a doppelganger, but then again if it was, I'd have to make a figure
for William Wilson, and then I'd really have too much to make before the Big Night.

Such droopy eyes, 

As if they were made of


MELTYBEADS!
