Secret of Grady House- Finished

Digital over graphite - 11" x 17" by Greg Newbold
Here is the final painting for the Secret of Grady House fiction I am doing for Boys' Life Magazine. Who knows what they will find hidden inside this creepy old house?  I posted the sketch earlier here. I had a lot of fun with the characters and also the fun little details like the splintered steps and the cobwebs.

Here's a little detail of the main face. Of all my digital paintings, I think the rendering on these faces most closely approach my traditional painting style.

The skewed perspective really works on this, Greg. Great illustration.

Thanks Kim! It was fun to tweak it a little. The original sketch was pretty straight forward, but I felt like it needed more. I am glad I warped things.

Beautiful work on the facial features and those hands! Really cool and I like the warp too. :D
