The Dance of the Black Death
Ah yes, my entry for the second round of AVAT, theme 'Medieval'. Honestly, it's only half middle ages, since plague doctors like these weren't around 'till the 1600's, but sssshhh. The Black Plague was around far earlier than that, in fact, the largest epidemic was around the 1300's. Tens of millions of people died in that period.
But, enough with the history lessons! Here's my entry. The base of the drawing was actually painted on wood and then (strongly) refined in photoshop.
Man, I like plaguedoctors.
Edit: Wow, I'm away for a week on vacation and this thing is suddenly frontpaged? Well, thank you :D
