Sprouting delicately from the ground. The undead rise in the moonlight.
I'm a bit annoyed at the water rings around the ground, but let's just say the ground is wet and those are light reflection. Yeah, that.
Ended up doing a few attempts at this to get it right. Ran into an odd effect I haven't seen so vividly before. There was odd ink displacement going on if I did the background last which involved wetting the whole page. It's an interesting drop shadow effect.
I actually kinda prefer the look of this sketch over the actual painting. I may clean this up and use it for something else.
