Life and Death-redone by Liol Life and Death-redone by Liol
Another contest I was invited to participate in-- by Attache who has also commisioned me!

This is Life and Death-- again. For a while now I had wanted to redo the couple and had worked out a few comps but when I saw the references for Vannessa Lake I knew she'd be the perfect model for this.

I got a lot of inspiration from Frank Franzetta,
Here is the reference photo of Ms. Lake that I used.

I may need to lighten it up-- colors tend to show up way brighter on my work computer. This is all digital-- with traditional sketch of course-- made to look paintly. I was really going for looseness like in Franzetta's work and I took a lot of inspiration from his choice of colors too

Love your stuff... but Frazetta, not Franzetta.

... I hate myself for commenting on that.

Anyway, excellent work.
