Another art challenge by :icondaekazu:, :iconmidnighttea7:, :iconvinegar:
For each challenge we interchangeably give ourselves an idea or topic to illustrate and a short, specified time to execute it in whatever shape or form... of course, without knowing what the others are going to come up with.

This week's topic is vinegar's idea: Maman Brigitte. She is a death loa, the wife of Baron Samedi. For more info check wiki: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maman_Br…

EDIT (11.2012) - finally done! You can see the previous version + sketch on my blog, here: vinegaria.com/maman-brigitte/ + bonus close up is in the gallery.

Mine is a WIP, still very much unfinished. I used some references, especially for the rooster (which was nightmare to get right) and some of mizzd-stock, although not one photo. She has some great shots of folded materials and hands, so I looked those up as general guidelines. Concepts of outfit, her face and background are, as usual, mine.

Anyway, she's often associated with drinking rum, chilli peppers, colour purple, a scarf and a (bloody) rooster. Or hen. Depending on what I read. Also glasses with usually one of lens missing.

She's also the only fair-skinned loa, often said to have red hair. I thought it'll be more interesting to put her in a southern setting than on a cemetery, even if that doesn't really go 100% in tact with her story. But well.

Oh, she apparently borrowed baron Samedi's hat.

A bigger version is coming up when I'm done with it.
