Ghost Riders in the Sky by chasestone Ghost Riders in the Sky by chasestone
Pencil. This piece will be cooler for those of you who have heard the song, and if you havent i suggest you check it out, no matter who sings it (it's one of those country songs that everybody's sung at one point or another) it's a great piece of music.

This one is actually pretty big (a bit larger than 16X20) and since i dont have a big ass scanner like that, i had to take a pic of it. I'm just lettin you know this becuase there is alot of detail thats been muddled out in the translation to digital photo.

Amazing ... I have trouble drawing my next breath.... just found the pic in the "Burl Ives" u-tube thing and am amazed at the way the song is captured and projected by this rendition, a very interpretive pencil ye'll be wieldin' there "matey"

This is done in pencil? Wow. I'm impressed. I thought the cowboy was an actual photograph and the rest was super-imposed. That is so awesome! And on a more personal note, I'd like to say that this is how I've always envisioned the song to be like.

I was actually thinking of this song earlier today. Very well done.

We haven't yet hit thunderstorm season out here which always reminds me of the bass line in this song.

...Their brands were still on fire and their hooves were made of steel...
...Their horns were black and shiny and their hot breath you could feel...
...A bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky...
...For he saw the Riders coming hard and he heard their mournful cry...
...Yippie-yiy-yeeaah, Yippie-yiy-yoooh...
...Ghost Riders in the Sky...

I listen to that every time on a rainy afternoon... or when the red sunset is at hand o'er the Sandias...

Amazing drawing, the detail is outstanding, even more so for being just a picture of the original!!!

Instantly recognizable theme as well! I've heard way too many versions of the song, one of my all time favorites! Well done!
