Artwork Description

Long before there was Sadako or Kayako or any of the ghosts one sees in Japanese cinema these days, the mere mention of the woman in the snow sent jolts of fear down people's spines. People really were afraid of seeing her back then, and I don't doubt that there's still people living in Japan today who believe in her. You don't doubt the classic tales.

I had trouble with the wood and corrugated steel roof of the BG, but altogether I really liked the results. I opted for a less decadent-looking obi for the lady's kimono, just because I'm a lazy git who can't bother to learn how to draw fancy kimono. I'd probably be better off drawing a Korean hanbok.

Watercolor, gel pen, paint pen, and Photoshop (for lighting).
