Ghost by BERT70 Ghost by BERT70
This looks so much better on my tablet...oh well. There is a story behind this. Short and sweet version...I was woken one night by what sounded like a woman screaming bloody murder. I was so sure it was a woman I called 911. It scared the shit out of me. Come to found out that there are owls that can make that sound and since a have a large wooded area behind my house I figured that must be what it was. There is a good ghost story in there somewhere.

I'll bet someone was murdered in those woods and her ghost still cries out her last moments of terror!

Yeah I suck at ideas. Good drawing!

Owl´s scream are terribly creepy, especially when you are camping. 
I really like how that experience inpired you to do this.

Super creepy...but I like it!
She reminds me of what perhaps a banshee would look like.
The sickly greenish glow you've given her in the dark forest is just perfect!
Makes her look very other-worldly.

Your work is very emotion-evoking!

I love the color usage in this image- it's all cold and faded and it feels ghostlike and just absolutely lovely and scary ;w; <3

My heart was in my mouth...I had just finished watching Dexter and was only asleep for about 15 minutes. You should have heard it. Thanks!

Oh my, what a creepy gaze and lovely linework.
Haha, well your take on that story is certainly a thought provoking one though. I would have dismissed the idea after I learned it was an owl, but to pair two gives it a very creepy folktale type of feel.

Wow. That is an interesting tale; the design is really nice, it's as though you've peered out your window and she's there-- watching. ;-)
