Spooks, Ghouls, and Photoshop Tools: The Ultimate Collection of Halloween Tutorials

Spooks, Ghouls & Photoshop Tools: The Ultimate Collection of Halloween Tutorials is packed full of great tutorials, as well as a few other bolts and screws linking you to great inspiration sources.

Halloween is here once again, and every year a bunch of awesome inspirational posts, design tutorials and horror-style typefaces come along with it, not to mention all of the brilliant (and sometimes awful) slasher and zombie movies. This year we’re being treated with several movies (Zombieland, Saw VI and Halloween II) which are sure to provide lots of design inspiration in one way or another, whether it’s the film itself or the bloody movie posters is yet another mystery for Scooby Doo and gang.
