Last year I did a special Halloween pic featuring two original characters. At the time I hinted that I would like to introduce new spooky girls every year, and this year I decided to follow up on that with this picture. Our Halloween cast began with Lillian L’Orange, a character I first drew back when I was in school on my DeviantArt, and the cute little witch Adeline Fortuna. They’re joined now by Sophia Huesos, and here we see them giving her a warm Halloween welcome.
I was running through monster types in my head, trying to decide what to do this year. I have a lot of ideas, and fully expect to introduce a new girl next year, and I had a fun thought with the skeleton. Obviously I couldn’t just draw a skeleton (or even a skeleton in a wig) and expect anyone to find her sexy. However, I started thinking about maybe a chalk white, skin-and-bones type girl with a Día de los Muertos look. I was partially inspired to this by the appearance of Death in the Deadpool game, where they sexified a character who had previously just been a skeleton in much the same way.
I toyed with the idea of making her bald to drive the skeleton idea home, but while researching Día de los Muertos makeups I kept seeing girls with this black bob-type hair with roses. I thought it was a really cute look, so I adopted it into Sophia’s design. I hope you guys like her!
