Lady Death- final version by InKibus Lady Death- final version by InKibus
The raw scan can be seen here.

And actually, there is another version to it, less touched up and tweaked than this. But I figured I get this up and away.
Part of :iconkasia88:'s Alternative Grim Reaper contest.

I made it a somewhat demure hooded woman, with a sickly-light latern.The yellow light and hood are in the theme that the color yellow often associated with death and dying.
The candle in a window is sort of symbolizing someone's light, but the light of death is stronger.
And you do not want it outside your window.
Hope she does not pause under your window.
I wanted somewhat softer colors instead of harsh shadows and darkness. I hope it doesn't look too EasterTime-multicolored.
Model is me, original photo here- [link]
A bit of credit on the stone was goes to a postcard of the town of St. Ursanne, sent by :icongraemeskinner: and his wife. ;)

And I will eventually upload a huge version of it, but I cannot upload anything very large this point. I have sat here for a half hour and DA keeps timing out. Ai ai ai.

Your work is getting better and better each time I see a new drawing.... the lighting in this one is excellent. I love the detail in the background :nod:
Very eerie and intense :D
