Illustration Friday: spooky


Somewhere in the Transylvania countryside is the idea behind my submission for Illustration Friday's "spooky theme. I love this word so I did this last minute quick and dirty on stonehenge using acrylics and prismacolor pencils;)

If an obvious artifact existed on there it could be an "exhaust pipe" for smelly and noisy terrifying spirits... :/
