Obake in the Woods
We spent months searching these woods for a legend. Nearby villagers said once in a great while, when the sky becomes like fire, at the edge of a body of water you may see it but only for a second.

My trusted dog and I were ready to give up, as we were exhausted, hungry and done with the mosquitos that relentlessly pursued us.
As I stated into the water as if in a daydream Sebastian growled next to me and I look up and saw it.

How long have you been here I wondered? How have you survived all this time?

No longer a story, I saw this legend staring back at me, or perhaps through me and I felt my heart race and I held my breath. Suddenly there was this serenity that came across that pond and washed over us and Sebastion and I woke up many hours later.

The Obake was gone but wait, it seems that in my hand the remote camera trigger was pressed and yes there immortalized in a frame was the ghost of this great forest.  I cannot wait to show the world but we must wait until dawn to find our way out of here.


I hope you enjoyed the image and story. I have been heavily experimenting with compositing, color and illustration.

The image was made with a combination of Corel Painter, Photoshop, and Paintshop.

Some stock from the wonderful deviant art community was used to help bring this legend to life:
Many thanks for the inspiration:
