Danny Phantom

This is my Danny Phantom fan art. Danny Phantom is one of my favorite TV shows from Nick. I have wanted to do this for a wile:) I decided to make up my own monster and story. The evil baking monster form the ghost zone takes people and turns them into his cupcake ghost minions. Their goal is to turn all the humans into ghosts and rule earth. 
You can see my process on my Tumbler, fb, and twitter:
