This illustration is part of my (growing) series of skeletal musicians, made with pen/ink, digital coloring and a touch of photo textures. It explores the dark romanticism present in the melancholy sound of the cello.
“Bloody Roses” is a digital rendering of a gothic scene. Inspired by the vampire genre, this piece pays homage to the romance, beauty, grit, and deathly atmosphere of the night-walkers. The bloody butterfly represents femininity and grace amidst a world of horror.
