Draw Haunted Castle simple Halloween quick color sketch step by step

Draw Haunted Castle Scene simple Halloween quick color sketch step by step.
Here are somewhat 15 minutes sketch of Halloween left over. Haunted tree and castle scene, this one is very simple, focus on the overall thumbnail and comp. Too me, I think I should have done the ground less flat than what it is. I kind of like the tree, simple brush stroke and just default to make random and creepy look.

It's somehow a little too plain for my taste, but something simple and quick...I might do another one later on when I have more time to scribble. :)

Blah! Halloween Haunted tree and castle step by step process here:

1) Begin to establish random shape to separate the ground plane and sky line.

2) Add some random shape for sky to establish depth and cloud.

3) Drawing creepy tree, refine more shape on the plane level.

4) Assign color shoice (blue dominated & yellow), then establish far away castle.

5) Quick color sketch Done! Halloween scene creepy looking tree and haunted castle.

Drawing Software & Tools I used and recommended:
-Genius MousePen 6x8
-Wacom Intuos3 6X8 Pen Tablet
-Bamboo (Small) Pen Tablet (new from Wacom!)
Economy for everyone.
Softwares:
-Gimp (Free Download)
-Adobe Photoshop CS2 (Professional software)
*You can just use pencil, paper, markers on this one...just practice rendering.

Cool, and it's not as if you could do much more than that in 15 mins anyway!

nice one brother... you time when to draw stuff... you make things at the right time! :D

Xia I need a small favor (if you can). I don't know if you use painter but I know that Doug Williams does. I would like to ask you or him if its possible to make a small tutorial or explaination of the most used brushes in Painter. As you'd know there are SO MANY different brushes in it!! I got confused on which one is good for sketching, coloring etc...
I'll ask Doug too so if you see him ask him to check his inbox please!

Hope not to have violated any idrawgirls rules with this question :) hope you'll help me!

Thanks and well done for the tutorial!

Peace!

Wow that's 15 minutes? I should take a page from your book and learn to just put value down and not worry about details! Great work :) Hopefully a video tutorial is coming soon? :D

Chis> Thanks, though I should have layout the mountain range in the back better, instead of flat...I should have de-level it more.

Luca> Thanks bro, I used to use painter. I love their brushes and the fact that you can rotate the canvas. But I can also manipulate PS to have brushes I wanted...the only big different between PS and Painter are canvas rotation (except in PS cs4 hooray!).
For sketching, PS, Painter, and Gimp make no different to me. It's all about foundation and how you use them...they are just tool. It's kinda like you ask me if different brand of 2B pencils or oil paint matter? Well, it's just preference. :)

Pokepetter> Thanks bro, Scare huh! Boo!

David> Yes indeed, thank you. Detail often are over-rated for artist. Once you get the basic in place (value & comp)...then you can go into detail. Depending on what you wanna achieve. :)
No video, sorry.
