Halloween Hopping with Some Odd Girl

trick-or-treat
Ding Dong! 
Glad you decided to come and Trick or Treat with the Odd Girls! You should have arrived from Suzanne’s blog.  If you’ve just stumbled on our hop today, you’ll want to go back to the Some Odd Girl blog to start at the beginning. 
Our hop this week is full of spooktacular Halloween Tricks and Treats. Don’t worry, our tricks won’t be too scary! AND, just like trick or treating for candy, you don’t want to skip any houses…or blogs in this case!  In order to win TREATS, you must leave a comment on each of the Design Team blogs.
The trick, or tip, you'll be picking up from me is to do a little looking at reference pictures when you're coloring something new.  I created a whole Pinterest board with Vampire references so I could find something that I loved and that I thought people would instantly recognize.  Speaking of Vampire's- would you get a look at little miss Shy Mae!  Me thinks she can't be called shy anymore- don't you agree?  For a chance at the treats available along the hop leave me a comment with the name you think suits this Mae best now.
     The next blog you will Trick or Treat is Isha’s blog.
 You can Trick or Treat with us thru midnight EDT on October 31. Winners will be announced Saturday Nov 2 on the Some Odd Girl blog.  Have Fun!!

I think that her name now should be Vampy Mae. But it is quite spooky seeing Shy Mae looking like that. But this does show you what can be done with none Halloween images. TracyB

Love the vampy Mae. It's not very kid friendly but I would say succubus Mae.

Setting up pinterest boards for inspiration is a great idea. Fantastic colouring on Mae loves those eyes. I think she should be called Midnight Mae now.

Great spooky card! Can't decide between Voracious Mae or Ravenous Mae, she looks like she's had a lot to eat but is still ready for more :)

Janine Vegter said...

jan farnworth said...

i think belle is totally the perfect name for this vampire odd girl.

Crafty Math Chick said...

Wow, you aren't afraid to go dark are you, LOL! Beautiful coloring though, her eyes and the blood dripping from her mouth really pops. What to call her now... I was originally thinking 'Vampy Mae' but after reading Trina's 'Bloody Mae - think that is MUCH more suitable!

Isha Gupta said...

Nannymac Creation Inspired by Forever Jane said...

I'm lovin' everyone else's suggestion of Bloody Mae-ry!! The only other thing I can think of different would be something like Winnie for Halloween...
