By the way, I noticed they didn't include what I wrote in my suggestion of this piece when they gave you the DD. Here is the note I wrote. That time of year is coming again. What will you be doing this time?

Ferreson said the following:

It's getting to be that time of year, and Nov 1, Dia De Los Muertos is approaching. I don't know how far in advance that you select your Daily Deviations, but I did want to put a recommendation out there for this one::

"This jumps out at you right away and draws you in with captivation. Cartismandua does some great stuff with the eyes in her post-processing. But here especially, she managed to merge the beauty and horror of Dia De Los Muertos magnificently!"


Even if you don't select this image, I hope you are having a good month, and finding lots of great inspiration.

Great concept, and the balance of color works really well here. The fact that her eyes are closed adds more interest to the piece.

i love how mysterious and hauntingly beautiful this peice is. the shadows are perfect and give it a weird amount of depth and the colours add the right amount of pop to the whole peice. :D
