The cat one is ghostly but this one is even more evocative. Very eerie.

This is very cool. I like the ghostly images.

first time i read what this week's topic, i remembered the cool film "Trainspotting". I thought of making something of it but heck, the wind blew in another direction.
now here is a wonderful illo that stands out with another definition of "train spotting". (btw, i still havent figured why that was the title of that film)

8) happy easter!

How did you achieve this texture? Is it digital or painted? Very interesting and injects a particular character into your illos.

Truly ghostly handling here, I like the clarity of the people at the back of the train and moon howling compared to the otherness of the landscape. And the title puts a spin on the event as well.

So who is lonely cowboy? is he lost and just passing though... or is he looking for something?

I'm trying to imagine the feelings of the passenger looking back at this cowboy looking back at him... and maybe hoping the train would go a little faster. Beautiful lighting, as you always get into your illlustrations... Same with your cats below. Clever beings.

Thank you for your comments. Always appreciated. My editing of my previous week's illo wasn't purely in response to a comment... The blood element I removed had been added very late in the process and seemed a bit over-the-top. Wasn't part of the original photo from which I drew the illo. Thank you so much for your encouragement.

Great illustration. Such haunting color contrasts and dark and light contrasts.

Eerie! Looks a little like ghost-spotting! I enjoy your painted mysteries.
