Promenading on the Fine Line

This is Halloween.

Without Jack Skellington!

There's a contest for the Art Club on campus, and the theme was Halloween. Immediately, I thought "The Nightmare Before Christmas! Halloween town! Sora! KINGDOM HEARTS!" so I right away jumped at the idea and created the sketch. So yesterday, the day before the meeting/when it's due, I took the entire day finishing it up. It unbelievably took 12+ hours in total, and that's really short for a big of an art piece as this. I stayed up the entire night coloring this stupid piece of drawing (which was from 10am-7am) and I still wasn't done. I hurriedly colored it so please excuse the quality; I can do so much better =^=;
What's even worse was that the meeting was CANCELED!! There was no reason to rush my coloring asdjkfleafms. Now it's due next Thursday. Goshhh.

For those curious about my progress, here's a small "tutorial" (if you will) on how I draw for bigger art pieces:

Mah sketch! On a 8x12" paper. (normal sized paper)

And then I redrew a cleaner and bigger sketch on 11x14" marker paper (yes I sketched it AGAIN) and I began to outline it in sepia ink.

I've always wanted to do fanart for KH but I never got around to it x)

After I'm done, I erase the pencil (obviously).

Shiny clean lineart o:

...and then I colored it. Haha. I know, it's a major jump in the coloring process but I didn't have the time to stop at certain intervals to take pictures. Maybe next time!
Go to my DeviantArt for a larger version (or just click here).

Lastly, but not least, the aftermath.

No detail shots simply because my coloring is CRAP.
I could've spent those 9 hours studying, dangit.
