Santa Muerte

Another challenge to myself.  I've had Copics for a bit now and not used them very much.  I though it time I tested myself and did a "slightly" more challenging image.

The one I chose to use is Sante Muerte Figure Only from Aurora Wings.

So yes i used Copics!!  But I cheated slightly by using a black polychromos pencil, in particular to add some extra shading and to tone down the colours on the scythe so the yellow shone out light a highlight.

I've also created a bit of a blurry abstract background behind her to make her stand out more.

It's taken me a few days in my lunch breaks at work to get her finished.

After all that work I had to keep her CAS - didn't want anything to distract away from her so all I've used is some red card stock
