This drawing happened because I wanted to draw something that mixed my old and new styles of drawing.
I started drawing figures like this back in college, when I wanted to expand my use of body proportions for something other than fashion design figures. I used to draw a lot of fairies, so I wanted to use that concept, but add a Dia de los Muertos inspiration to it. I drew it in pencil first and then painstakingly inked it in. I plan on drawing more figures and adding water color paints to them. For this one, I like the black and white the way it is.
Every other Thursday in the 5.0 year, I will post my own Dia de la Abby creations Every Thursday in the 4.0 year, I posted my Dia de la Abby creations and occasionally tutorials with instructions on how I made my pieces. Hopefully you feel inspired by my posts just as I was by Noah's Skull-A-Day 1.0 daily project. Need more of me than just a weekly dose, follow me on Facebook, Google+ and/or Twitter.
