Drawing Challenge Homework:
illustrate an obscure fairytail or create a character from that fairytail~

I had fun with this, didn't think I'd pull out anything decent for this prompt because I literally had no motivation or ideas for it. The story for this illustration is Jack-o'-Lantern (from Ireland)
If you read the story you will understand the picture a little i think. But anyway I tried to incorporate heaven and hell, death, and the weight on his shoulders in purgatory (he is a dead ghost in this pic). All the whispyness is vines,hair,smoke, and fire~

Nicely done! Love it when an awesome artist like yourself can throw something out that's a little creepy and a bit thought provoking too. :D

I always was enchanted by the idea of this character, and this does him total justice. I LOVE this!

Very eerie....! He looks so statue-like in his face and so fluid in his hair and arms! It's super well done. Nice work :D
