Trick or Tree by priteeboy Trick or Tree by priteeboy
"An Urban legend states, that if you shudder for no reason at all, then someone has just walked over the spot where you'll eventually be buried"...Pretty creepy huh?

Anyway, This is my submission for the =TreesClub Halloween contest where you had to produce a Halloween-themed deviation that involved the tree being the main focus. Nearly all the entries were photography so I though and hope this would stand out from the crowd, and the idea expressed is pretty self explanatory.

To be Honest, Halloween isn’t a big deal in Australia, last year our house got no trick-or-treaters, and the year before that, only 2. Even I wasn’t allowed to do it as a kid unless my mother came with me and my younger brother, even then, we’d only visit half a neighbourhood…at 5pm which is still daylight at this time of the year ( Southern hemisphere means Halloween is in Spring ) So having little Halloween experience means I never cared enough about it to make one for last year, and if it weren’t for this contest, I may not have done this either but it sparked this image in my head which I just HAD to do…Yeah, it may not look scary like a Macabre and Horror deviation should, but when am I going to get to use this category for my gallery. Hope you enjoy it mwah ha ha ha ha ( walks off into creepy mist to work on the next deviation )

WooHoo!...This is my first deviation to earn more than 100 faves in its first 24 hours...ThankYou all so much !

WooHoo again, This came first place in the clubs first contest !

To avoid something really scary, I bid you do not rip my art. It'll save us all a lot of time and its just wrong

Oof, I am so sorry you're having problems with theft. Wanted to let you know I shared this piece on my Tumblr: [link]
I left the DA-generated credit and link on the post, but if you'd like me to credit differently or remove the post entirely just let me know.

Hmm, isn't tumblr like dA where you need to upload your own pictures :hmm: Or is it like Facebook and people just post and share stuff they like :?

I suppose that's OK. I've lightened up to blog posts which I suppose are harmless when credit is given to me as the artist :shrug:

Just a postscipt-- DA actually includes Tumblr in its sharing buttons, to make posting to Tumblr easy. I *think* artists can control which sharing buttons appear on their DA pieces, and as of now it looks like you have all the buttons displaying. Although the share buttons create posts that include credit and linkbacks, if you're uncomfortable with your work being on any of the social networking sites (especially if you're having theft problems), you could check into disabling some of those options.

I forgot all about those. I guess I don't mind stuff like that :p

It's just a show-and-tell sharing site, definitely not for artists' own work. My hope is it will bring you some recognition (a few "likes" have appeared already!), but if you change your mind it's totally okay. =)

Hey! Love your works, they're amazing, but you should do a google image search on your pictures and see all the places they've been coming up or being uploaded to

Oh I'm too scared to search for my own name or artwork on Google :fear: anything bad enough is bound to be relayed back to me by someone eventually anyway :paranoid: But I hope it's mostly good stuff. Many people have featured my art on their blogs or magazines :)
