The Art of Darkness

Photoshopped Spookiness

March 24th, 2008 by Cobwebs

Haunted HouseThe 3DTotal site has put together a set of 100 Photoshop Tutorials for Making Beautiful Art. Some are not formal tutorials so much as notes on how a work progresses, but there are some great ideas for digital painting and photomanipulation to create spooky effects.

I particularly like Sebastien Gaucher’s Maison Hantée, turning a cheerful and well-kept house into an isolated wreck. It would be fun to do this with a photo of one’s own house: Just because you happen to live in a sunny bungalow doesn’t mean it’s not a dilapidated mansion in your head. Spook up a picture, frame it, and hang it in the living room as inspiration.
