The ghost Okiko (Japanese for "Chrysanthemum") has taken the form of a beautiful woman.  She haunts the garden of the mansion, and fades in and out of the roses, star flowers and gladiolas... but now they are more than her home.  She has become lost in the tangle of vines and blooms... the Ghost is fading away...

I love your ghost. At first I thought it was a flower child from the 60’s. I really like the hair, the way it covers half the right eye with another small strand drooping down between her eyes, very sexy.

:-) Richard Zachmann replies: "Thank you!! But I am afraid that is not a strand of hair, but the edge of the flower petal beside her. It is all part of her transparancy and the confusion of the flowers overlapping. Thanks again!"

Excellent graphite work, Richard. This piece shows a lot of improvement with your skill at drawing. This one and "Vampire" are the most skilled I have seen from you so far. The anatomy also shows a great deal of improvement. Beautiful piece 2

:-) Richard Zachmann replies: "Thanks man!! The next one is the Goddess Athena amidst the ruins. I was checking out your work last night and got cut short... will look at more... Thanks again!!"
