The Pumpkin King by RadoJavor The Pumpkin King by RadoJavor
I cant refuse to make another halloween picture. I love this season and the special atmosphere of this day. My imagination is again directed to the colonial america, age of first settlers and wich trials. I tried catch the atmosphere of this time in a small village where the children are dancing along some old obscure idol. All creatures are drawn to him to celebrate this night.

Hope you like the picture. Any commnets are welcome.

Well, I bought three prints, including this one, The Pumpkin Mother and Visitor (?) and I'm not pleased. The prints in-hand aren't nearly as bright/clear as the art on the site here. The colors seemed washed out and diffuse.

Im sorry to hear that. but I dont make the prints, you need to write to deviantart helpdesk.

Spent a good while trying to find your other work after seeing this posted on an article that was too riddled with ads for me to try finding the credit on their page lol
Glad I found the original though, love it all!

Awesome, awesome stuff! It inspired us over at Makes Me Wanna Write! - makes-me-wanna-write.blogspot.… Enjoy! (Oh and we fully credited you for the art, of course!)
You've done many wonderful things, and this is old, but it remains a great favorite of mine.

I do hope the guy in the hat is as much in control of the situation as he appears to feel he is. (Also, if I were a scarecrow made of corn husks, I'm not sure I would do a lot of playing with fire.)

It reminds me of a very old game called Sanitarium.It had same motive with pumpkin and children.
RadoJavor Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2016  Professional General Artist
this game was awesome. maybe it was a bit inspiraiton foe me.
KnightoftheBlackSun Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2016
One of my favorite games,they don't make games like this now.Second thought that i have on this picture is horror movie that name i don't remember anymore.It had bunch crazy kids and a scarecrow.

I don't know if you did this on purpose or not, but when you look at the thumbnail pic you can almost see another pumpkin.

Really nailed the atmosphere.

The detail and the atmosphere are exceptional.

Love this image wow creepy.  The only thing that throws me is the dude in the foreground, not sure the whole story of the image.  But I think he detracts from the overall image in my opinion.  Maybe if it was villager looking in on the scene in horror or scared to all hell that would be cool.  Anyway nice work.

LOVE THIS IMAGE!  Ordered a print and it arrived today....not too thrilled with the way it looks........any chance of downloading a higher-res image than the one you provide?  The  print looks rather drab and lifeless.......rick klein
