Ahhhh so creepy!! 👻 This ghostly girl is a character from a short story called "The Red Spot". It's one of many stories from the children's book series "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark", written by Alvin Schwartz and illustrated by Stephen Gammell in the early eighties. Drawing heavily from urban legends and folklore, Alvin created eerie stories that were brought to life using nightmarish illustrations drawn by Stephen.  This is truly the stuff that nightmares are made of! Follow along this intermediate/advanced tutorial for tips and tricks on re-creating this frightening image 🕷🕸
