Mrs. Troublemaker was nice enough to commission an original painting from me as a Christmas gift to her husband, the Phantom Troublemaker. "Well what do you want?" I asked. "It's totally up to you. It just has to have the Phantom Troublemaker in it". I thought about it for a few days, did a few sketches, and then the idea hit. Once it did, I knew exactly what I was going to paint. I was very flattered to be asked. And once I had the idea I was excited to see it completed. Now that Christmas is over, I can finally post it. It was definitely one of my favorite paintings I've done in a while. And I'm very glad to hear he likes it. It's acrylic paint on a 16"x20" canvas.
I used myself as the model for the body and zombie hands with my wife as the photographer. She also came up with the idea of using a graveyard as the background. All in all I was very happy with the end result.
