grave diggers terrified by ghost rising from grave
This digital illustration was painted in photoshop in 2010 at 10"x8" size. I do like gothic horror and Hammer films and this painting of a ghost rising from the grave and frightening some graveworkers/ robbers illustrates this. It is quite old fashioned in a way, much like the old book covers from decades ago I used to look at in shops. I posed for the 3 figures in the painting and took photographs, which were then used and traced within photoshop. An image like this is drawn on the computer, then painted in a traditional, layered way similar to conventional painting media. The rising spirit is the main source of light in within the image, the rest of the painting being quite dark and illuminated by the ghost's light.
