ER: Life and Death V by youngsherlockholmes ER: Life and Death V by youngsherlockholmes
Behind every man now alive stand 30 ghosts, for that is the ratio by which the dead outnumber the living.

Arthur C. Clarke, 2001: A Space Odyssey

That spiritomb design is absolutely fantastic. The birds are just perfect, beautifully drawn and moving, perfect for representing the individual spirits and acting like hands for the whole. And calling for help.. I can almost hear the voices, and the voices are frightening, monotone, hollow... And I love how they're bubbling out of the spiritomb and all still bound to the main body, like puppets. The only thing they have control over are their voices.. AH just... incredible.
I really love this angle of it, I love the teeth, the huge fangs, that grin..
And the way it's colored, making it more black than purple is really working for it, makes it look far more... ethereal.
I am gushing over this page, it's just absolutely gorgeous, frightening and perfect.

And an excellent quote to go along with it..

Sergei's in a bit of a tight spot, definitely. But the birds are all his friends' souls, so it's ok, right? ;u;

And yes Vale to the rescue! Thank you so much for letting me borrow him for this <3

Aaaah... Run away people at the door. Run away. Sergei look out for all the scary ravens. My guess is they are not friendly... Just a thought.

aaaah so much amazingness cannot be put into words. I love all the symbolism, and the dialogue. And all the emotion and intensity you were able to put in. <3
