My best friend the ghost by ProdigyBombay My best friend the ghost by ProdigyBombay
~For :iconcypherx:’s contest: theme Best Friends

I got an idea for the theme and it wouldn’t leave me alone, so I decided to give the contest a go~

The young boy, because of ill health and a strange ability that enables him to see ghosts ala the Sixth Sense, has scared off all of the other boys his age. Thus, his Best…and only friend, is the family ghost…who bears a strange resemblance to him…

In any case, they’re both inseparable~ and I wanted to show that in this picture, so I drew them overlapping each other, with a point of contact (they’re holding hands)

The story reminds me of something that happened in xxxHolic! I thought it was a great idea, but they never expanded on it. You rendered the ghost very nicely, in a different way than I'm used to seeing. Another amazing piece!

This is full of detail yet its not too busy.
I love the fact that you've put in all of the little things from the sakura tree to the peng you.
The colors compliment the picture very nicely!

Aww, I can picture a really sad story from this story. I dunno why, I really like ghosty stories :D
Nice writing too, is that a font or handwritten? I don't recognise the top letter, but the bottom I know. (Is it 'together' and 'friend'?)

The supernatural world that you have captured me in
You make it all fascinating in your art
And with the shrine, lantern, and the sakura or cherry blossom trees just gives off a very haunting, yet harmonic aura
=D
This is a fav
