The red spirit mourns for those who fell victim to the smoke and ash of a once young and brash flame.

My entry for the "Fight Club" challenge. Where we were meant to choose one or more creature / character from a pool of randomly generated names and render an art piece in whichever way we wanted, I chose "House-sized red fire wraith".

Very emotional and a very efective color pallet.

Love both the different conceptual take and the execution on the concept; rather than taking a more common design of 'standard-horror-jumpscare-inducing-spectre', the juxtaposition of the melancholic spirit is just brilliant ! 

Special kudos to the amazing use of color, too ! 
The red works really well with the somber muted tones of the barren and blackened charred forest. 

**I'm reading that this is a take on the spirit of a forest fire, no ?

That's what I tried to suggest with the picture, yes.

And thank you for the kind words, I really appreciate it :)

For a moment I thought there were two beings in this picture, but I had neglected the house. :P Either way, this is cool! I love how it captures such raw emotion. :D

Wow! Very amazing piece all around, but the sad expression of the face and the overall position of the body is beyond amazing. c;
