Really, this whole graveyard sequence started with that little Scottish poem:

From ghoulies and ghosties.
And long-leggedy beasties.
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!

I don’t know about any of you, but I have always been baffled by the long-leggedy beasties. I tried to imagine one, but it just looks like a girl with strangely long legs and not much of a beastie. So I’ve stuff with the ghoulies and ghosties, adding to that Death and the flaming Death’s Head — and now, a ghoulie.

So, anyone out there have any idea what a long-leggedy beastie looks like? A description will do if you can’t draw it. I used the original “Ghoulies” movie poster for this guy. The alterations are because whoever drew the poster was more skilled than I am. He does resemble a Ninja Turtle, but he’s a Ghoulie. A Hollywood knock-off Ghoulie.

  1. Very sorry about your pain. Hope you can get rid of that.
    We went bike riding a few times with Rose. Now my hip hurts.
    This old age thing is the shits.


  2. I like the colors and the shapes in your work. You ask a good question. A “long-leggedy” beastie? My first thought is a spider except that that sounds pretty normal and mortal in contrast to a ghost or a ghoul. A giant. A zombie table or chair. Just being silly now.


  3. Lol! I have no idea what a long legged beastie is! 😀


  4. Goodness! that looks like stuff that I’d do!
    I never knew what was going to manifest.


    • I got tired of birds and flowers and wanted to do something a bit more fun. The first ghost 👻 popped out of nowhere. After that, I decided to see how many strange things could live in the cemetery. I will do more, but my wrist is REALLY sore. I am having trouble just answering comments or writing short pieces here. I ignored the pain until I couldn’t ignore it – which was stupid.

      I’m hoping another couple of days with the brace (assuming I don’t do anything else stupid), I’ll be able to draw again. Maybe start small and see how it goes.
