Second Day of the Dead piece for work. Had a blast doing this one and I think it goes down as my favorite piece I've ever painted thus far. Spent way too long on it, probably 25 hours, but it was worth it.

EDIT: Whoa, my first DD! Thank you for suggesting it and thank you all for all the wonderful feedback! I'm totally stoked!

EDIT 2: Added a wallpaper of the cropped upper portion for widescreen monitors for download, shows more of the details in that area as well. :) [link]

Daily Deviation

Dia de los Muertos by *Chronoperates The Suggester said: "Her work is a beautiful display of color and shadow and finely detailed into such imaginative, creative works. She had a style reminiscent of old style monster movie posters in many of her works, and it makes me look on in awe and wonder about the magical story hidden in each work."

Absolutely fantastic. I love the composition and colors. She just has this look to her that says elegant and beautiful, but dangerous...

Check the submission dates...Mine is the original and was created months before the submission on the one you mentioned. Thank you for bringing my attention to the one that was drawn off mine and did not credit me though...
