Memento mori by Nevaart Memento mori by Nevaart
So! Finally finished with this painting, which I call "Memento mori" which means "remember death" or "Remember you are mortal." A rather well-known expression that refers to all of us will one day die or something.

Anyway, here's my interpretation of that term. To the picture I have used the copic markers, ink and airbrush. I feel quite satisfied with the hair, but the skin and bones, I would probably like to do differently in retrospect. What do you think? Advices?

thanks:D well, It took some time to figure out how I would do, but in the end, I used white ink as "outlines" and then used airbrush acrylic as shading. U can also use soft pastels for shading:)

I really like the concept and the colours.
The bones seem a little off, especially the shoulder. The joint is too far away from the bust. The bladebone has to be moved a bit more towards the back, even some bits of the ribs covering it. The skeleton of the hand looks especially good. I really like how you used white contour to make the bones visible. The background is appropriate too.

Its not hard to construct a simple skeleton guideline for a human form, but to actual draw each bone can be extremely difficult, since we aren't use to seeing them at all. I just stick to anatomic books in need since its not necessary to know how to draw all(and although I tried to push myself into learning all bones and muscles I never got that challenge completed).
