Just a work in progress here. In my mind the front is just about done but the back i have yet to do (Its still an ink drawing at the moment).
Here is the front;
Just wondering what your opinions are on the candles. They are meant to be floating round the ghost mainly for extra creepyness. I quite like them but i would like feedback on this as well as general feedback.
Oh yes and i still need to smarten up the black border too. It looks a bit scruffy.

I like the sound of black between the figure and the candles; I shall try that. Floating is a good idea; but it will obviously mean making a whole new figure as this chap is a bit too inanimated for floating. Although perhaps i could edit him a bit.
Sorry you cant see the image Reivaj; I did it in tinypic. Apart from that im not sure what the problem could be, sorry mate.
That's a really cool idea. If more stiffness was required, you could print the front on transparency and the back on photopaper or cardstock, removing the candles and "connectors" on the cardstock half. Or sandwich some cardstock in between the transparency sheets.
There are only 3 kinds of people in this world -- those who can count, and those who can't.

The other alternative would be to make the candles separate and sandwich the whole thing in two layers of sticky tape.. at least until you can get some inkjet transparency.
There's three kinds of acetate transparency
1) OHP (overhead projector) : can't print on them, use with pens. 2) Laser/photocopy: heat resistant won't work on inkjet 3) Inkjet: special coating to absorb ink: these will immediately kill a laser printer or photocopier.

I was considering grey or perhaps even green outlines to give a more ghostly look. I have an inkjet printer so transparency paper stuff would be ok. But as was said im sure it is costly. Im starting my first year at uni soon so money is as big issue at the moment. So yes; packing tape or the suchlike is a good idea. If i put somekind of tab on the candles and on the ghost to allow them to stick well.
