Reaper by Aerin-Kayne Reaper by Aerin-Kayne
This was
so
annoying to do.

Looking at the rough sketch I did at first, I thought this would be pretty straight forward, but that it wasn't.
I like how it came out - it just took somewhat longer than I thought... (and it wasn't hard, just not as easy as I thought at first).

...grr...

PS
hey, i thought i'd ask first. i wanted to get this tattooed on my thigh. it's fucking awesome! i'll alter it a little so it's not exactly the same. is that ok with you? i don't want to get something tattooed on me that the artist doesn't want there.

very cool. this has a very immediate poetic or ironic quality, showing that death is a happy or pleasant thing with the flowers. i love it. deffinitely.


p.s. i dont know if u remember me but i asked u about some sketching tips. if uv got the time, check my more recent stuff n see if u think iv improved! nothin special, but its always awesome to have somebody so superior look at ur stuff!

This is awesome, difficult or easy not withstanding. I love how the life of the flowers surrounds the death of what the reaper stands for. Very cool.

They're very pretty then. I just know they look awfully familiar. Sorta reminds me of a flower my hawaiin friend showed me. Cant think of the name at the moment tho.
