Entry for :iconmizzd-stock: Urban Fantasy contest

They excist in every modern Society - the Others... In some places they are called the Mirror People.
Sometimes, when looking in a mirror, or reflected in a display windor, you will see them very clearly.
But when you look straight at them, you won't see them, or merely a vague glimps. They will just fade and disappear, leaving you puzzled and wondering...
They are the former inhabitants of the place, the ancestors, the pioniers, the holders of memories.
They are there, mingling among the common folks.
They are the soul of the city....

Thank you for noticing this - even by myself - forgotten work. Yes, indeed, I did put quite some thought in it, and looking at it once again, I even like it more now than I did when I made it.
Funny detail: I'm in the picture myself ;) :)
Thank you so much for your great feed back, much appreciated!

Argh! the mirror people run away!:sprint:
:D nicely done!
But it's a bit too much for me, it's rather 'in your face' for describing a urban legend, which in my opinion are best shown in quieter images.

Yup, I agree - i couldn't stop tinckering on it...
Took a few out- it's still a lot, but maybe a little better? ...

The mirror people should more faded as they are not really suppose to be clearly seen.

Ah, you're probably right... I tried all kind of variations ;) - but I think I am done with it now, it's what it is. Thanks for your comments though! I really appreciate! :)
