id' leave it as it is, or just color some edges, like with the metallic powder or brownish oil and clean the rest away, just to give it some 'used' tone... I hope i give the idea of what I mean.. ^^

anyways, it's a fantastic sculpture!

That is wicked, wicked, wicked!!! You're house is going to look so awesome come halloween, I cannot wait to see the followups and how everything looks together.

I LOVE the dark look of it! Buuut, I think it would look great if it had just a bit of color. Like a dry brushing of a dark purple on the house, just hit the edges of the shingles with a medium grey dry brush. Dry brush the steps in a light grey, the molding and trim in a greyish white, then lightly wash the door and tree with a dark brown. Just don't cover up too much of the black!


or, or, or, I know! Barely dry brush the whole thing in a greyish white, it'll keep the monotone color, won't cover too much of the black, but will really make all the great features pop.

If at any time you have put on too much color, just come back and 'antique' in black, it'll be perfectly gloomy Smiley

That is fantastic! 

I think adding some highlights (not sure what with) would give it a bit more depth

I love it. Personally I would stain the door red and stain the pumpkins as well.

Another thing that could make the details stand out more without changing the overall effect is using some watered down paint then wiping most of it off, like a stain.

It looks great all black but maybe some color on the roof in say a lite gray to give it an old spooky effect. what ever you decide it looks great!
