Apparition in the Crypt

I don't usually do stuff that is spooky or scary but this piece is one of my rare attempts. Inspired by the "Deryni" medieval fantasy books of Katherine Kurtz, this shiny ghost floats in one of her magical crypts. It may or may not be a human ghost. Katherine doesn't write scary stuff either, but she does add a heaping helping of mysticism to her tales of swords, magic, and courtly intrigue. It's fun to illustrate and I'd love to do more. 

"Apparition in the Crypt" is ink and opaque watercolor on brown paper, 7" x 10", fall 1998.
