Hey this is a colloboration work with my talented friend Rahul Kumar. You should check out his gallery Arrow Bullet (Rainbow) - F2U!  horizonred.deviantart.com/ . Lineart in the piece is done by him and the painting is done by me. 

The portrayed girl in the painting is a Churail. Here is a passage about the Churail written by Rahul; "I remember the bedtime stories I was told in my childhood, the scary ones. One that I heard quite often were tales of a female spirit who sits in the branches of the peepal or banyan tree in the late hours of night,waiting to attract and devour men who roamed with bad intentions. The story always used to end along the lines of "horror washed over his face as he noticed that her feet were backward...and that is when he saw his final sight, the churail in her true, horrifying form. The part about her feet being backwards was the one that used to creep me out the most. The fact that a peepal tree stood tall near my old house didn't help much either!"
I hope you all like the painting Heart

I liked the colour transitions very much and I have to learn a lot from this. As I am not trained and doing something at own interest, these works are reference points to me. Thanks a lot.

Thanks a lot. I am a self-taught as well but I still have so many things to learn.

Rahul'un sayfasına da yazmıştım ama, Şurele diye bişey duymuş muydun daha önce ? Churail ve Şurele isimlerinin telafuzundaki benzerlik dikkatimi çekti. Hikayeleri farklı da olsa, genel olarak Şurele için ormanda yolunu kaybetmişlerin karşısına çıkar deniliyor, burda da bir şekilde ağaç üzerinde oturuyor olması vs ilginç bir benzerlik. Rahul'un Hindistan'lı olması, bu hikayenin bir şekilde kültürler arası yaptığı yolculuk gerçekten ilginç :)

hiç duymamıştım Şureleyi. Churail'i de Rahul sayesinde öğrendim. Çizgiler ona ait olduğu için ağacın üzerinde oturması da onun fikriydi ancak gerçekten ilginç bir tesadüf olmuş. Teşekkür ederim yorumun için :)
