This is my scary/spooky submission for the Oktober Challenge. Done with water colour with lines with pen and ink. Got some inspirations while going through some scary photos. I sure would not want to meet such a nun in real! 😱🎃
I put away the monster man. He was a bit too repulsive.

Oh, spooky, Gita.  Love the grey tones.

Will try to make time to get one done before the end of the month.

 :eek: Yikes.... that is too reminiscent of one of the nuns who taught at the Catholic school. Especially the boys didn't like her because she would check their fingernails and give them a rap on the knuckles if they weren't clean enough.  :run: My girlfriend Darlene used to have us howling with laughter with stories about her adventures growing up in a convent.

Well done Gita, thanks for bringing those memories back... and people thought I was nuts growing up!  :2funny:

Wow Gita she's creepy. I too have memories of nuns at primary school. In grade 6 we had a nun named Sister Kevin we called her Pinocchio cause we said her nose grew as she tried to stick her nose into everyone's business

Gita, this is spooky!  But I was laughing at Val and Teresa's comments.  I am sure this will remind lots of folks about a nun they once knew!   :2funny:

Gita, how exciting that you are thinking of joining the art school.  If you can, go for it.  I would love to do something like that too.
I am still working on my submission.  I do a little on it every so often and then put it away where I can't see it for it freaks me out and I can't stand to look at it.
