Grieving Ghost by CalamityChemist Grieving Ghost by CalamityChemist
"Let the cold winds blow, let the years come and go. I'll wait for my true love...though she'll never know."

This picture was partially inspired by the song ‘Let the Cold Wind Blow’ ([link]). I heard it a while back and the lyrics fit Carmori’s situation very well.

QUICK BACK STORY--
He died two weeks before he was supposed to wed his fiancée, Mary. However, his ghost followed her as she mourned (pff, hopeless romantic), even though she couldn’t see or hear him. Unfortunately for him…he watched her fall in love with her childhood friend, who consoled her after Carmori’s death. They eventually married.


And so here he sits, on the night of her wedding to someone else, under the tree where they would always meet, and cries. :'I
CRYBABY

This one was a paaain--but it was a good learning experience. c: Even if the coloring is disappointing, I was focusing more on expression/emotion anyway, and I’m happy about how that aspect turned out.

:heart: Hearts to you all!

I love the way you make the emotions in your picures. This one really tuches me. :happycry:
It reminds me about some books I read a long ago...
By the way, I think this song is fitting perfect:

For some odd reason, this just kills me.
I feel it in my soul.

There's a ghost down in the hall
There's a ghoul upon the bed
There's something in the walls
There's blood up on the stairs
And it's floating through the room
And there's nothing I can see
And I know that that's the truth
Because now it's onto me

I don't understand it
Hey
I don't understand it!
Aaow

There's a tappin' in the floor
There's a creak behind the door
There's a rocking in the chair
But there's no-one sitting there
There's a ghostly smell around
But nobody to be found
And a coughin' and a yawnin'
Where a restless soul is going

Don't understand it
Hey!
Don't understand it
Hey.

And who gave you the right to shake my family?
And who gave you the right to shake my baby, she needs me
And who gave you the right to shake my family tree?
You put a knife in my back
Shot an arrow in me!
Tell me are you the ghost of jealousy
The ghost of jealousy

There's a tappin in the floor
There's a creak behind the door
There's a rocking in the chair
But nobody's sitting there
There's a ghostly smell around
But nobody to be found
And a coughin' and a yawnin'
Where a restless soul is going

Don't understand it!
Yeah Yeah!
Don't understand it!
Your just a dog gone!
Aaow!

And who gave you the right to scare my family?
And who gave you the right to scare my baby, she needs me
And who gave you the right to shake my family tree?
And who gave you the right to take intrusion, to see me?
And who gave you the right to shake my family?
And who gave you the right to hurt my baby, she needs me
And who gave you the right to shake my family tree?
You put a knife in my back,
Shot an arrow in me!
Tell me are you the ghost of jealousy
A suckin' ghost of jealousy
Aaow!

And who gave you the right to shake my family?
And who gave you the right to shake my baby, she needs me
And who gave you the right to shake my family tree?
And who gave you the right to take, intrusion to see me?
And who gave you the right to hurt my family?
And who gave you the right hurt my baby, she needs me
And who gave you the right to shake my family tree?
You put a knife in my back
Shot an arrow in me!
Tell me are you the ghost of jealousy
The ghost of jealousy

Aaow
Dog gone
But there's no doubt about it, piece of mind
Tell me are you the ghost of jealousy
