    Yikes!!!!!!!!!

    Looks spooky and emotive and vaporous and all that Gothic stuff.

    Only comment would be that his left hand (to our right) is a wee bit too small even considering foreshortening. With some clever selecting and copying and pasting you could resize it to fit with a few good painting tricks I'm quite sure you're up to. Small matter really.

    As to the theatricality of this, it's a grand thing to have a ghost that broadcasts his feelings as this one does. After all, ghosts are about stirring up emotions. And this lad's got a story for sure.

    I like the minimal color. Reminds me of the old black and white horror movies that scared me sleepless as a kid.

    Excellent. You nailed it!

    I did a similar kind of study of making someone slightly transparent once in Photoshop. I recall a lot of my approach but haven't tried it in ArtRage yet, going to have to give that a try at some point.

    Inspiring me! Good stuff buddy, keep it up.

    You did a nice job of giving form to the mass of the body while maintaining the transparency.
