looks like a 20 sided die.
seems deeper than most illustrations.
hehe, it is a d20.. i do play d&d but in gnosticism the shape (icosahedron) symbolises "man fully realised". i like to use obscure references to all matters of symbolism to the point where i barely understand it myself
Nice shades here
Very nice work on this one, i especially love your "SHADE" work its well balanced throughout the drawing and fits every spot, i dont mind the bland bacdrop but could still use something back there, hope to see much more of your work soon
Needs something in the backround as it was somewhat bland
awesome work! but I'm wondering, what are the images in Death's eyes? it seems that there could be something significant there.
its the reflection of another grim reaper standing in a landscape holding a scythe. well noticed ^^
My friend Damien would love this! ^_^
"For whom the bell tolls,Death awaits."
To me,it looks like Death is playing his gamble,the dice should determine who's
very perceptive ;) that was indeed part of the idea i had in the back of my head...It's not nececarily about who is next but more that the fact that our birth and the time of our death are mostly determined trough random events, chance, luck...
the symbols on the dice represent different perspectives on death... some believe in eternal life after death (ankh), judgement (scales) or death as the restoration of balance (ying yang)
it's pretty much about most religions coming down to one thing, death... fear of death to be specific. People trying to find a way around of the fact that they will no longer exist when they die.
I believe it's pretty hard to accept that that everything you are and ever do will eventualy be gone and forgotten, i geuss thats why religion is so popular, it gives many a sence of meaning or purpose.
