Revisiting the same theme as my original "Yurei".
This one is made in a "digital woodcut" or block print style, if such a thing is possible.

Really, I treat the layer masks almost like the blocks, sketching out and then carving away areas that I don't need.

It's unique to some degree to digital but I find that the decision making process what to remove, include, etc. as well as the compositioning are identical issues to resolve regardless of the material.

Anyway, I like it, and you might too.

What an interesting idea...woodcuts/block prints are not something I would've expected to translate into the digital realm, but I think they've worked wonderfully for you. (It seems so intuitive now--taking away is, after all, easier with layers....)

This is really cool, Dave. I find the hints of representation really draw me in as I try to piece it together. It's nice to look at.
