Nightmare Ideas

So I sketched around some ideas for the Nightmare Before Xmas characters... Cthulhu boy (no back story), Abominable snowman (no back story, but too close to Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer), the limbs in the wrong place guy (no back story), and the Pilgrim, who has a complete back story...

After Jack Skelington embraces his calling as the Pumpkin King, he decides to explore the other holiday doors at the edge of Halloweentown. He visit Thanksgivingtown and meets up with Indians and white settlers. The settlers think that Thanksgiving the only holiday worth celebrating and try to bring it to Halloween town, whether they like it or not. Jack escapes and enlists the help of his friend "Sandy Claws" to save Halloweentown.

As you can see, I like the Nightmare Before Xmas a little too much and have spent too much time thinking about new stories that could be told about that world!

After reading the Pilgrim's back story it appears that he is the scariest of the lot.
I like Cthulhu boy but he needs a better costume, like a sailor or pirate.

I concur with the Pilgrim's story and think you should push that character even further, embellishing both drawing and story with more coolness.
