This month of October I will try to make an illustration a day that is inspired by Halloween. This is for day number 14!
For a while now I've wanted to do a drawing of Rapture during Halloween time. I think the place would look awesome! Especially the farmers market. So I made this piece of Bioshock inspired art. And just like you would expect in Rapture, not everyone gets to survive the celebrations.
This was done in about 4.5 hours. I drew it in pencil, and colored it in photoshop.
Enjoy! Andrew Ryan says only parasites don't like Halloween!
Just a little footnote here... I came up with a basic premise for this picture while I was working on it. Ryan Industries comes out with a new plasmid in time for Halloween called Disguise. It allows the user to change their appearance and basically shapeshift into anyone they want to for a limited time. It was big hit for Halloween. Only problem was, that on Halloween night, there was a series of random violent attacks across Rapture, and witnesses all said they saw Andrew Ryan as being the culprit to these. Obviously it wasn't Andrew Ryan, but anarchistic splicers all using the Disguise plasmid. Most of the suspects were arrested and punished, but there were some that got away. The Disguise plasmid was immediately revoked and discontinued. Little did the people of Rapture know, that this was only a taste of what was to come later that year at New Year's Eve 1959....
