Vanitas and the Crow, messengers of Death. Once a human woman, Vanitas made a deal with Death, now she serves him by visiting those who are have a chance to save themselves from Death, but only if they heed her warnings and change their ways from the vanities of the physical world. Her partner, the Crow, appears as the sign to those whom have not heeded Vanitas that Death is shortly to appear.

So totally in an history class this year called "The Art of Death" which has given me an unhealthy love for the lore behind death and the personifications death has taken over the years. Vanitas is named after a painting still life style in Flanders. The paintings were to serve as a reminder that the vanities of this world decay as do you.

This will be apart of a new series from me. :3

Awesome job! This has a foreboding mood to it. And I like how you're taking inspiration from multiple sources.
