2015. pencil on bristol .  wips here on my instagram!   (does this need a mature tag?) 

So a while back(aka a year ago) I found this awesome artwork: fav.me/d7wi0eq  by WonderDookie  . In it he challenged other Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark fans to create artwork that were tributes to the original Gammell illustrations. 

So here is my attempt to recreate the illustration for the story Harold. One of my favorite (and still creeps me out) stories from the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark series. I just changed the format a bit to fit the paper better but that's it. Creating the textures he uses was much harder than I thought!

This reminds me of a drawing I did for one of my own short stories back in 1994. Eerie resemblance. I don't recall seeing this illustration in the original Scary Stories book.

Yeah I chose to change it a bit to fit the paper. The original was split across two pages, one of Harold hanging and then another of the background figures. (sorry this was the best ex. I could find crappierpasta.tumblr.com/post/… ) But I tried to merge the two pages/images together onto one page instead which is why it probably looks weird XD.

Oh man. This story gave me the worst nightmares ever when I was a little kid. 

That must be really difficult trying to replicate the Gammell style in pencil. You did a really good job though.
