I love this kind of horror.
Wonderful and interesting. The black background, the facelessness and the ground make it a truly haunting scene.

Great job with tones, this time with color! Those stripes seem to flow naturally and do not look flat at all. The simple composition is effective and having that amount of black provides the idea of space in which the character is going.

As soon as I glanced at this piece, I knew what the subject and inspiration were. I couldn't tell if it was digital and traditional, so a great job on the blending!

Clear composition, impactful color choices... I like it!
Personally, I would have put the ghost a bit more to the right but it still looks awesome anyway.

Thanks for your input, though I think the composition is just fine. I like vast amounts of black.
