A hooded figure stalks the streets this night, the stench of disease following in her wake. In the darkness, by the light of a gibbous moon, another stranger falls dead at her behest. Hurry quickly home, and do not tarry by the lamp-light, for death stalks the streets this night.

Updated 31 July 2004 - altered the contrast to help get rid of the washed-out look it had.

It's kind of hard to imagine why no one commented on this yet, so I guess I'll do the honors. The contrast is a bit off it looks, but I have a funny feeling you did that on purpose because it all adds to an air and more complicating feeling to plague, almost poetic on how it makes it harder to see her, and death and plague are things that indeed take away and fade the sense of sight. I like the wrinkles of her too, because usually when people draw a fearie like this, they draw her/him either with a skull or with a smooth and young face and dress them in goth clothes. this is sort of a much more realistic feeling to her, and she's not compleltly menacing, merely lonely. That's the way I kind of see her. it's coolies. me likes it lots. five thumbs up.

:-) Logan Pickup replies: "First, thank you! Second, gah! The contrast is out? As nice as it is to know you thought it was intentional (which of course it is), it's really just my computer. It has screwy contrast. Stupid thing."

Kill, my ugly! Kill!

Oh man, that's super-sweet... You should put this on a t-shirt, or a poster, or just paint it full size and let me buy it from you! Gueweewee.. ~chokes on her own excitement~

:-) Logan Pickup replies: "Yes! T-shirt-ness! Hmmm... I might have to do that now..."

I went to a lecture on 'Lepers in the Middle Ages' recently, and this picture, well... it reminds me of it. Wow, that was deep.

Anywhichway... she's some funky old crone. Love her expression, love her hideous facial peculiarities (were you looking in the mirror for reference there, GitFace?), and I positively adore the light/shade effect.

Oh, and the fact that she's wearing pink (or rather, purplish-magentary-violetesque) is just bloody brilliant. Heehee.

:-) Logan Pickup replies: "You called something I did brilliant. I'm going to go look outside now just to make sure the sun isn't rising upside-down. Moreover, you just gave me the motiviation to fix the levels on this - don't know why I didn't do it before. I'll upload the corrected version sometime in the unforeseeable future, I'm sure (immediately after which I'll find a different monitor that it looks all wrong on, but I can have a few days of peace, I'm sure)."
