hahah gracias!

Dude this is awesome.

The thing that strikes me first is the turquoise sky and falling leaves with the clouds there, I just get a feeling of cold Winter/December for some reason. Even though the Sun's shining, this piece feels cold... Maybe it's because she's totally nekkid and I live in a perpetually cold Country, haha!

Really nice work here man, looks really pleasing. Nice, simple colours with great use of highlighting & shading.

Kinda thought provokin' too. Like... what's she thinkin'?

Also, nice work on making it appear she's resting on an invisible surface. That's looks really cool and further adds to the mystery of the piece.

Favourited, love it.

gusana responds:

Thank you! the symbolism on this was that if the living are in a hole, then the whole world is one, so now she's dead she could finally came out of that hole and rest in piece n_n

the leaves are actually cempazuchitl flower petal.

Dia De Los Meuertos

Death is but a transition into paradise. If your heart feels warmth, so shall the spirit.

What would be cool if while looking at the light, it would appear that the bones are growing back her flesh and she is being reborn into a new person.

gusana responds:

I'm not very into drawing muscles and blood but I think is a good idea n_n
