HIDE AND SEEK by AlexanderLevett HIDE AND SEEK by AlexanderLevett
EDIT: I wanted to say a little more about what this image could be. We all see this as a horrifying image but as noted by one great DA member I have drawn the spirit about the same size as the girl so could also be a child. This could be a mother holding an image she has looked at many a time as the wear shows, maybe to remember a lost child that could just still be trying to play hide and seek. That is what is so great about art we can each add our own narrative.
To all of you who enjoy my work I am re-entering my artworks into the competition and would be greatly appreciative to all of you to look at my work again as all of your favourites and comments have been deleted when my work was removed. I like to get back to each and every one of you who honour me for taking the time to favourite and comment on my work and look through your galleries to reply in kind, thank you. To those who are interested I wanted to experiment with this competition by taking a base photograph and drawing directly over the top, adding the lighting the phantom and the smoke as well as to heavily edit the base photo. I have edited all photos to make the subject unrecognisable. All of the references used as a base belong to me and were taken for this contest.
EDIT: The response to this has been amazing and I am truly thankful to all of you. I will be slowing working through my messages to say thank you to so many of you.

The ghost is drawn in, while the rest of the image is a very edited photograph.

This is amazing. One thing I absolutely love about your work is the emotion. Yet again you do not disappoint. The anger yet lost look of the spirit looking like it just hates the living because it envies it, its jealously has consumed itself and has turned dark. Love this. Amazing job, there are Artistic people who yes can draw and then there are people like you who use art to share emotion and stories.
