Haunted house exterior this time, we'll do interior next time. :)

Draw a haunted house at night at 320 x 200 res using no more than 256 colours.

Good luck. :)

Do we have to show that the house is haunted, or will you take my word for it? :) Would an ordinary although somewhat spooky looking house be ok, or is it necessary to have blood running down the walls and ghosts hovering by the front door?

I think a generally spooky atmosphere would be fine, doesn't have to be over the top :)

Yeah I don't really like OTT, but this is a pretty free comp, you can do whatever you like, except for using skin and gore where it isnt warranted. :P

In this case, it is if you want it to be.  Up to you really. :)

Thanks,

I figure that I'll keep entering the blitzes as long as my backgrounds can be used in the game that I'm working on (the asylum for rodents, that YakSpit suggested, might be a bit hard to fit in :)).

Hey, wow.  Thats a great shot.  Perhaps too many clouds, and too low, but I do like this picture a lot.
- Oh great, I'm stuck in colonial times, tentacles are taking over the world, and now the toilets backing up.
- No, I mean it's really STUCK. Like adventure-game stuck.

Mr_Frisby:
Thanks! Yeah, it's a bit influenced by Calsoon, I have to admit that. I was just not too satisfied with the house itself - Can't put my finger on what, but it looks stupid...
Oh well.  

Boyd:
Dig the tombstones and the moon, man! ;D Nice.

here's my entry... i also posted it in the critics lounge



it was made in 24bit colors then reduced to 8bit for the blitz (here's the original hi-color version)

also, it's better viewed in full screen :)

Plasticman : oOOOOooH. It's reminds me of the house from evil dead minus the pus.

Boyd: The house so terrifying it scared the moon.

It's not finished :( but I promised I'd enter and I need to go out for a while so thought I'd post it now.  Should have started earlier..


Love yours, Plasticman.

Edit: :P For correct resolution

Wow. With the last two entries, I'm glad that I didn't waste any time entering this contest (I intended to, but never got further than a few sketches). They're absolutely fabulous. Too bad I won't be able to get online and vote tomorrow.
