Digital painting I did in Adobe with Wacom drawing tablet. It has been something I have been working on off and on and decided it was time to finish it.

Also blogged a tad about it here [link]

Very elegant!  I like that you used an oval frame for that proper Victorian feel!

Hey, I really love this image, and had a question for you. Some friends and I brew our own beer, and we have a stout recipe we were planning to call "Creepy Mortician Stout". We don't sell our beer or anything, it's really just for us, but I was wondering if you'd mind if I incorporated your mortician onto our label for that beer. I'd be happy to send you the label when it's finished, and link and credit you, of course!

Nice work! He sort of reminds me of Lee Van Cleefe for some reason.

did you use any reference photos to come up with the look of the mortician?
I have been trying to study the history of funerals and have a very hard time coming up with reference material.

For clothing yes I did have to find some instances of Mortician's type of dress for those days. I didn't have a whole lot of luck but fortunately I am an old horror movie buff and much of it is from memory.

Wow, that face, I just want to stare at it forever :3 It's got so much character, the long nose and wrinkles are my favorite parts.
The depth in your lighting is incredible by the way!
