Spirits Of The Dead by AbigailLarson Spirits Of The Dead by AbigailLarson
Another "Poe" inspired piece! A man goes walking through a graveyard and strikes up a conversation with a ghost! Such a great poem.

Ink & Photoshop

I'm loving that ghost! The smoke is great and the way that his shadow melts into the ghost is creepy awesome. Ghost is all like " aha, aha, and whatcha gonna do?"

Great style!  Is the drawing done digitally?  If you draw or paint in Photoshop what brushes do you use?

It's drawn in ink on paper! I scan them and add color in Photoshop. I've never used any custom brushes :)

this is incredible. i love how the swirly ghost-trail comes out the grave and touches the man's feet. i love the browns & neutral colours that give it a warmth & wonder, like the ghost is interesting & not threatening. i also like the movement in the lines & shapes, especially the main loop in the centre from the ghost's trail, which make the picture look sort of distorted around the fat part of the tree & the crest of the hill, like when as image bulges under a magnifying glass. makes it look all strange & dream-like.

The inquisition and curiosity on the ghost's face is purely magical and almost childlike.
Outside of the shear awe inspiring aspects of this (and all your other) drawings it really was the ghosts face that grabbed me and pulled me directly into the scene.
As always my dear, wonderfully done.
Such a dream to see your artwork.

Well you captured it most elegantly!
You can see it in the ghost's face and simply body language with what little of a body he/she has!
I mean all of your pieces are truly magnificent and one of a kind but there was just something about this one that really spoke to me.
Very childlike in wonder.
Thank you for putting this out there!!!

Sometimes I have conversations with ghosts too.
They're quite amusing communicators.
