Truly beautiful work.

That is so cool. The black finger nails look like pupils.

I love the drawing.. though the right hands index finger looks a little wierd. Everything else about it is amazing though.

This is quite honestly, one of the best, and most visually interesting pieces I may have ever seen. The hair, the face, the thumbnails..all brilliantly done. I wish I had your kind of imagination!

When I saw this image in it's smaller form I thought that the finger nails on the thumbs over her eyes actually were her eyes.

I think that spirit has visited me in my sleep before...not a very nice creature indeed. Brilliant!

This is such a great pic! It sends a shiver down my spine. Really great work

The hands are so well done, so perfectly articulated. The hair, though, is what blew me away. It's so smooth and a lovely color, well shaded, and it looks as if it's alive. Also, the smooth texture of her skin is wonderful, very hard to accomplish with a paint brush. Bravo!!

Thanks Ken, remarks from an experienced illustrator is always a pleasure.

wow, this really hits a nerve with me. That, plus it's rendered superbly, which adds even more to its eerie charm. Congrats on a well deserved ed pick btw.

Yup, deserves editor's pick, if for the concept alone.

Art at its best.
