Coffin design

A coffin design done for the local art contest, which is a part of a bigger event - a convention held earlier this month.  I was shortlisted, which means I was required to go and recreate my artwork live at the venue.  I was only given 90 minutes to do so, and considering how detailed this piece is, I obviously didn't get very much done at all.  Thus, I didn't win anything...ah but it was good to participate. I still love this piece!  This is also a first of sorts, as I don't think I've done anything quite like this before.

It's obviously very inspired by the sugar skulls popular during the Día de los Muertos "Day of the Dead", a Mexican holiday.

Closeups. I think this is my favourite part of the image.

I love these skulls too!
