It hangs and hides in trees near the waysides.
Fall upon the travellers neck and remain.
Leaves when last essence of his/her body is taken
Fact or Fiction , Tree ghost is something which even a skeptic can't deny.

Stay scared ;)

:star::star::star::star::star-empty: Impact

First, I have to say that I'm impressed with your technique. You have a very nice structure to the painting, that makes it look decidedly "Not digital", and I like that. I feel like I can see the brush strokes.

I could have wished for a bit bigger contrast between light and dark (light/shadow) overall, though it's very nicely done on the ghost itself. It's mostly the sky that falls a tiny bit short for me. The details directly around the moon are really nice though.

I very much love your colour choice. It adds to the sad/pitiful vibe the ghost is giving off. Perhaps the red leaves are a tad too bright, but that's mostly personal taste.

The detail work on your trees is amazing. I absolutely love the leaves - It reminds me of the trees that Théodore Rousseau made, and he's one of my favourite painters.
Again I feel a bit more light/shadow contrast would have been beneficial though.

The overall feel of the image is somewhat sad and sinister, which is a really interesting mix. It kind of... draws me in, and makes me want to study it further.

Really interesting and atmospheric (and creepy by the way)! Beautiful light.

Haha, I love how someone said it was a shy ghost. It does look shy indeed, a little bit pitiful, too. Definitely not as scary as your other work but enjoyable in its own way.

Thank you very much

It is meant to look shy and pitiful. That's why i entitled it simple 'Tree Ghost'.This is a fantasy/horror subject .

Strike that. Don't read the description. It has that annoying implication of some sort of higher understanding, when it's just a bunch of fancy superstition and nonsense. Pity such good art skills went into this.

I am answering this from my notifications. I don't remember what I said I couldn't understand, but miraculously I remember the artwork.

Okay, now I remember that, but I forgot what You said. Bother!

Well, I do remember saying that, and I am ashamed I did.

Okay, now I notice the eyes and facial expression. Now it looks sorrowful and questioning. Must check the description.

I don't know about everybody else, but on first glance this reminded me of Sabrina. I think I will take a closer look.
