The girl and the ghost by cwgabriel The girl and the ghost by cwgabriel
I wanted to do something that wasn't video game or Penny Arcade related. I was inspired by this photo and the song Girl and the ghost by KT Tunstall.

Very creepy in an adorable way...if that makes sense. I lov every aspect of it! It kinda reminds me of Poltergeist in a weird way, you know, in the (I think) the second one where the Grandmother dies and stops the Creeper-Dude-In The-(agian, my brain is hazy)-Bowler-Hat from taking Caroline.

Very nice piece, I wonder if this is her grandmas spirit to help her find her way out of the woods. Very nice = )

I love the tall, misty nature of the picture... really emphasizes those long and lonely trees.

And all five of those gnarled fingers on the ghost! Wonderful. :D

This is awesome!

The background looks painted with aquarelle, and the ghost looks so much like a contemptuous grandmother from a Miyazaki film that it gives me a sense of deja vu. The bird gives the picture a surreal feel, and provides a very nice touch. I love it.

Great sense of emotion to this picture! In a way, it reminds me of the sense of beautiful emptiness I'd get playing Shadow of the Colossus. Excellent work.

Gorgeous. There's something very Japanese about its use of space and composition. The red contrasts nicely with the blue and white; gives the feeling of life in a desolate place.

Nice 'n loose! It's really cool how by you being in the lime light and all, we can track how your style has evolved (is super effective!) over the years, from the first PA comics to your paintings and this nice piece here.

peppy new year!

Love the use of colors. Your characters are very distinct, particularly in the expressions, it really brings them to life. Also digging the distinct focus on the pair in contrast to the sort of fogginess of the setting around them.

...yeah, fav'ing this if it wasn't obvious. =P

This is a good example of what I was talking about in my wallpost. The sense of water is great (water in the medium- which creates a wonderful sense of light). Have you thought about printing this onto watercolor paper?
