A painterly rendition of an elegantly-dressed Dia de los Muertos woman, beautifully adorned with roses, sugar skull accessories, and tattoos.
I felt like working outside of my regular process with this piece. The drawing was not inked at all, but rather taken from the pencil stage directly to color with markers as usual, but also colored pencils (something I have not used in years) and acrylics for the background. It was an interesting, if lengthy, process (coloring it took several days longer than average for a piece this size). Even the size of the piece is out of the ordinary, chosen to give the composition the most impact possible.
I’m pleased with how it turned out. I was aiming for a softer approach in the coloring, and it ended up looking a lot more painterly than I originally anticipated, to the piece’s benefit.
