The grim reaper by *Funerium is a fantastic representation of that mystical notion of death's form. The amount of thought and detail inherent to the art is wholly perceived when struck upon your monitor, and it looms beautifully out at the world before it. But don't take my word for it... go spooky-up your monitor with it and find out for yourself right now!

I like how you did the Reaper. You didn't show him as some "evil king"

Love this pic, thing that makes me like it more is the skull, looks realistic and really stands out from the other pics, even the robe where its a bit open, you can see a bit of its skeleton, i must say, awesome work indeed!

Nice to hear you liked. :painter:
The funny thing is that before being an omen of death Crows were the messenger of the gods.The legend says that in olden times the Crow was a colorful bird even more so than parrots.Athena,the greek goddess of wisom,even took it as her messenger.But the crow told one of her secrets, to punish him Athena turned his beatiful colored feathers that made his pride into the pitch Black coat we know today.Since then Owls replaced crows as the symbol of wisdom.He bacame an omen of death.
Good work.
