Featured Creature: The Return of Jack

Here's a hauntingly familiar face.  I should have known that once I broke out my pens, it wouldn't be long before Jack showed up.  Something about an revenant spirit with a flaming Jack-O-Lantern head and a bat cloak. What's not to love?

Jack is here to bring us spooky tidings of scary goodness!  For the entire month of October, in celebration Halloween, I'll be posting the Featured Creature twice weekly.  If any month of the year should overflow with scary monsters and creepy creatures, October is it!  Enjoy!

I had a difficult time with the Photoshop tones on this piece.  I had put so much crosshatching in the original drawing that any tone I added seemed superfluous.  After several efforts, I finally got the piece to a state I found acceptable.
