The Headless Horseman by AbigailLarson The Headless Horseman by AbigailLarson
This client wanted a painting based on Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" which I've been meaning to do for ages! I had a great time working on this one!

Love the digital inking on this. The active line work really brings "life" to this. So how do you work? Do you do pen and ink with ink wash and then pull it into the computer for color and effects?

I love seeing these creepy stories drawn out in your art style, it's very fitting. This story scared me so much as a kid and I think you did it justice :3

Beautiful... is it possible to say he's such a handsome fellow... even if he doesn't have a head?!? :lol: :giggle:

Lovely work though, the traditional looking sky does really well with some of the stylised elements in the foreground, and I love the quirky look to this illustration, well done! :clap:
