Old Oak Tree

I made this card using several images, the main one being Old Oak Tree from Make it Crafty. This one is for the 7th day of Halloween challenge which was to create a card or project using Jack Skellington (or any skeleton). I’m getting this one in at last minute! 😀

The entire background is colored with Copic markers on printer printer paper and the tombstones added were from the Haunted Halloween House (MiC). The chibi-style Jack Skellington and Zero are drawing tutorials from DragoArt.com.

I colored the sky using lines instead of blending because I wanted a Nightmare Before Christmas feel even though I was using brighter fall colors. I think it worked out well because of how the moon shows up (which is the only non-colored spot on the card).

Did you know? Chibi is a Japanese word meaning “short person” or “small child”. In English-speaking anime and manga fandom, the term chibi has mostly been conflated with the term super deformed or it can be used to describe child versions of characters.
