The Haunted Mansion
Disney attraction portraits #2: The Haunted Mansion. "When hinges creak in doorless chambers and strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls, whenever candlelights flicker where the air is deathly still, that is the time when ghosts are present, practicing their terror with ghoulish delight!" Welcome, foolish mortals, to my Haunted Mansion attraction portrait. A handful of the attraction's 999 happy haunts have come out to socialize with you, including the famous hitchhiking ghosts, the mysterious hat box ghost, and the original version of the attic's beating-heart bride. In the background are (from left to right), Walt Disney World's mansion exterior, the Disneyland original, and the Disneyland Paris ride remix known as Phantom Manor.

As you can probably tell, this is a combination of two physical drawings, one drawing of anything that's a solid object (the caretaker, the singing busts, the graves, etc.) and another of just the ghosts. Put them together, adjust the opacity of the ghosts, and taa-daa: see-through apparitions! To see a larger version, visit my DeviantArt account.
