Based on the famous hand of cards in pokerm this was a fun image to do, I even created my own cards for the image.

In case your wondering what the Dead Mans Hand is, heres a quote from Wikipedia;

In poker, the dead man's hand is a two-pair hand, namely "aces and eights." The hand gets its name due to the legend of it having been the five-card-draw hand held by Wild Bill Hickok at the time of his murder (August 2, 1876). It is accepted that the hand included the aces and eights of both of the black suits.

Hope you like it.

I'll upload a couple of companion image as well.

Hey this piece is fantastic! Really like the detail / work put into it. Wanted to drop a comment your way, used the image to enhance a piece of my own work, figured I'd link/back. Hope this is ok?

Unfortuantly no, it's not ok as these artworks are NOT stock and arn't for use in this way, please remove the Artwork or I'll report it to Deviant Art and get them to remove it.
Also, next time, ask before you use something, not the other way round.

Yeah, will do. Sorry for the offence. Honestly a simply "please remove" would have sufficed, no need for the entire paragraph of negativity. You're work is clearly very hard to pick out of the image and barely noticeable, it'll take less than a second to remove the layer so I'll do that. If you had a chance to read the description I gave credit to images used and discredited myself...I meant to harm, it was as stated "only for fun". Either way, again, sorry for the offence. I'll have it corrected within the next few minuets.

It reminds me of Vincent van Gogh's "Skull with Cigarette, 1885" (one of my favorite artists and paintings) - like a modern, darker version I guess. Really cool.

Hi Anarkyman,

I like your work and have taken the liberty of using this on one of my poems on my personal poetry website called Emotionography. It's not a commercial site and I can't pay, but your piece works real well. You have to click on the "Alternate Image" link below to see it. The poem is called "Aces and Eights" and here's the link - [link] . I have given you credit of course with a link to your DeviantArt Page. I prefer to ask permission first, but I've found artists generally have a more favorable opinion of the usage of their work when they can see how I'm using it. Also, it's often hard to describe. If you'd rather I not use it, let me know and I'll remove it immediately.

Sincerely,
Jerry Browning

If you'd like a different name or a different link, please let me know and I'll change it.
