I stopped adding numbers to these drawings, because I lost track of them.

This one is inspired by yuki-onna, a figure from Japanese folklore. She is a snow woman ghost described as inhumanly beautiful, whose eyes can strike terror into mortals that get lost traveling in the snowy mountains. She floats across the snow, leaving no footprints.

I don't know if anyone could pull off that "inhumnaly beautiful" aspect, but I tried to give her somehwat of an otherworldly appearance.

I hope you like it. And thank you all so much for the comments on my artwork. I read and appreciate it all! :]

She fits the description very very well! the angle and her expression makes it seem like a sudden confrontation, it's beautiful and unsettling.

Wow, so beautiful! :heart: Nice detail on her hair. I think you captured her inhumanly-beautifulness perfectly :D The angle of this piece is a cool touch too

Ich finde es schwer einen Geist in ihr zu sehen. Vermutlich wegen fehlender Transparenz. Aber es ist ein wunderschönes Bild und mir gefällt sehr die schräge Perspektive!

Danke! :]
Ja, in Photoshop wäre das so einfach gewesen. Zack, Transparenz reduziert. Aber mit Tusche... hui.
