Danse Macabre by AbigailLarson Danse Macabre by AbigailLarson
Today's prompt for Drawlloween was Grim Reaper, so I went with a "Danse Macabre" theme 💀

7"x7" Drawn in ink, and painted with watercolor and Photoshop. Prints are available here!

And check out this waltz by Peter Gundry, who used this illustration in his video!

"Life and Death have been lovers since the beginning of all things"

"Life makes many beautiful gifts for her love"

"And Death keeps them safe forever."


A beautifully done piece. Safest place on the planet.

The setting is fantastic. great shading. the ravens are a nice touch, and I like that we only see her from behind keeping the focus on death

Darkly beautiful! They really seem to be dancing some kind of slow paced dancing, like a pavane.
