Halloween is around the corner. This week, we want you to dive deep inside your nightmares, pull out a being of horror from there, whether it's a monster such as a vampire or zombie; or an ordinary creature such as snake or spider, and turn their frightening appearance in the slick version of the portrait on the wall. You have to include the frame and the wall that it's hanged on.

Optional Bonus Challenge: Make the frame non-rectangular.

Canvas Size - Max. 200 x 180 px
Colors - Max. 13
Transparency - No.
Animation - Optional.



The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.
