Lágrimas por los Muertos

Dang, I was too late to post this on the Day of The Dead because I was too busy celebrating it. My bad, its only an hour late. Here is a rushed digi-paint. I knew I wouldn't have the time to do a proper Halloween picture this year but I knew for sure I wanted to get one out for Dia De Los Muertos.

Here is a woman crying for the calveras that represent people she has lost.

At first, she was going to sit on a tombstone with a background but I just didn't have the time to do one.

She was also going to be happy but that would ruin the message.

Also, Zach went to the New York Parade yesterday and took photos and footage of some really cool puppets inspired by Dia De Los Muertos! I wish I could of gone. :3
Its neat how they even had a segment dedicated for it.

I hope everyone had a great Dia De Los Muertos!

Very cool. I think leaving the smile out was a good decision. She looks great.

It's amazing how something so "dead" can look so lively!

you know, I love the texture in your work. There's so much going on, so much to look at, and yet its so perfectly balanced. I also really enjoy seeing the rough versions that you work from. Keep it up, WOMAN!
