My favourite view

I have been wanting to draw this scene for a couple of years now and never got around to it until now. It's a walk we do up Grange Moor near Huddersfield when we are out with our dog. Looking out towards Emley Moor church.

Walking home in the rain

Evening Stroll

Based on my other half walking the dog at night, I took a few reference shots for this image.

Digital art - Artrage app - Windows PC - Wacom Bamboo - Title: My Shadow has a Strange Look about it

Is that a ghost man with a ghost dog walking up the hill?

A marvelous children's illustration style. Very effective. Good drawing and tone. The owl's eyes look alight.

The tone is jolly. Almost Disney's Haunted Mansion in feel. I don't feel creeped out by this. I can see plenty, and the ghostly visage of the man walking his dog tells me it's a mere echo of how things used to be and not a ghoulish, soul-stealing threat. I love that energy. It's more fantasy than horror. Good one, Jules!
