"The shadows were the first friends I had had in years. They frightened me, at first, but as I grew more accustomed to the hauntings, I befriended them. They weren't malicious; they were lonely, just like me. I grew to love them dearly and I began to think of the shadows as my family. Now, I embrace them and they hug my soul, taking a firm grasp. When they take me, the wind stirs and wisps of light which act as their smiles appear, and I feel a supreme euphoria. Like this, we become one."
The Character of the Week recently started back up in the Art Forum, and I can already see that I'm going to enjoy it. This was my submission for it. The theme was "possession", and I decided to do a more positive kind of possession, in which the "victim" willingly takes in the ghosts because she loves them; I don't see ghosts as necessarily evil thing. I felt pretty pleased with how her left (our right) hand came out. Yes, I know that the eyes are purple. That's intentional. Her soul is being taken by shadows, and the eyes are often seen as a conduit of the soul.
Feedback is appreciated!
Edit: I won the CHOW for the week. Whoo!
