The Sanderson Sisters found themselves in a pickle. Olivia, one of the many rats that roamed around the forest, had become tired of being passed over, when the witches were creating potions, because Winifred claimed she was much too ugly (but secretly, she really liked her because she saw a little bit of herself in Olivia).
One day, while the witches were out hunting for children, Olivia took their magic spell book and made all (but one of) the rats and the creatures in the woods fall in love with her. Including the Lagoon creature, Vicky.
She also cast a spell to make herself and the rats bigger. She was the biggest of them all, of course. They then trapped the Sanderson sisters and hung them up on cages, hoping to see them wither and become hideous hags.
The only problem was that Vicky, the one made in charge of keeping an eye on the witches, was madly in love with Olivia, and instead of keeping watch, she spent countless hours thinking about what her life would be like with Olivia.
I lied, that was not the only problem. There was also a little rat, named Charlie, that was immune to the love spell because of his deep love for Vicky. He knew he had to win Vicky back and break the love spell, so he plotted with the Sanderson Sisters and told Sarah the spell she needed to recite in order to turn into a serpent. But, Sarah, you see, did not have a good memory. She forgot a crucial word, leaving her head in human form, while her body transformed to that of a serpents. Poor Sarah, she spent the evening banging her head against the cage hoping to squeeze out through the bars as Winifred whisper/yelled profanities, while Mary stared in horror.
Will the sisters escape? Will Charlie get his love back? And will Olivia remain in power? Who knows. Only time will tell.

Sound was added to video for spooky forest effect.
My original intent was to have one of the characters from the video game be coming out of the TV screen, but the 80’s video game zombies looked too cheesy for the look I was going for (refer to picture below). Therefore, I decided to remove that screen and have a blank screen with a black figure trying to get out of the TV – and part of it actually succeeding.
I decided to make a pair of conjoined twins for today’s prompt. I wanted them to be young and sweet looking, but for there to be a macabre scene around them. (I still need to create the macabre elements.)
Today’s challenge was a bit difficult. I knew I couldn’t create the onscreen video game, without creating the TV, which is meant to be part of another prompt. But it was also easy in that it would be a fast one, allowing me to add more details to the bedroom (formerly known as a living room).
The creation of this doll was a lot more complicated than I thought it would be. Mostly because I decided to create an animation that would show arachnophobia and that required changing the eyes, mouth, eyebrows and arms. (Scroll all the way down to watch the animation.)
The 90th day of my 90 Day Art Challenge is finally here. It feels like I started this challenge just yesterday, but by the same token, it feels like I’ve been doing this for a long time.
The growth I’ve seen from my first piece to what I am creating now, is definitely evident. I feel like my pieces have so much more depth and are a lot more detailed. Overall, they are a lot more professional looking, in terms of the execution.
Keep reading to see what I worked on these last 15 days and to find out what I have planned next.
