A dark and beautiful goth sugar skull lady!
People often ask if I use models, or if my portraits are based on real people. For the most part I don’t base them on specific people, but I do often use photo references for either accuracy or inspiration. This one was based off of a similarly goth-looking woman in a similar pose with similar hair. I end up changing and inventing most of the rest of the details to create the look and feel I want.
