Those Who Play for Ghosts

There are pieces written for the ones forgotten. They linger unmoving while their shriveled hearts long for the dulcet tunes of a living, breathing soul.

Think you might find this interesting. Someone wrote a little story in this picture

I didn't write it btw.

This is truly a beautiful piece as it speaks volumes and still elicits so many questions. What is his connection to the spirits about him, what is their story, what is the song that they request or songs?

I really love this piece, and I can't precisely decide why. What I feel is amazing talent in its composure aside; it has an errie sense of sadness to it, as well as kindness. I'm left wondering if the young man is not at all forced to do what he does, or whether he chooses to play for those passed on.

Excellent work! :D

Your art is just amazing. It tells a story, it has it's own spirit, it evokes emotions. Digital art is art too. You're a great artist.

Is this a young man who can see ghosts, or is he stuck in a place actually populated by the undead?
TheMichaelMacRae's avatar
I'm thinking a bit of both. They're everywhere, sometimes seen other times not but he has a special connection to them
