Default a sidetrack of boredom :)

Well, this is not actually a wip or finished work. Just got a bit sidetracked as I was trying things out for a real project. I liked this image though so I thought I'd show it to you as well. Maybe someday I'll create a complete Final Fantasy type ghost or something...

Thanks guys!

Rage:
It's a simple lambert which has a ramp on the transparency. The ramp's V-coord is driven by facing ratio of a sampler info node.

The facing ratio also drives the lambert's glow intensity.

That's jolly, it looks like a sort of stylistic saxaphone. Nice effect.
