The Grim Reaper

Yet another Halloween piece- this one of the Grim Reaper (cutesy style).  It was more difficult working with a dark figure.  I did a lot of the shading in white or grey.  It was also a bit harder working on the background knowing my figure would be dark.  For my foundation, I used anatomy book paper and, if you look hard enough, you can see a bit of the skeletons in the background.

And my original sketch:
The sketch was a bit chubbier and his head a bit rounder but once I started working on an 8X10 canvas I needed to make him tall, dark and handsome - LOL.  He is a cutie in either version and I really like him ALOT!!
Thanks for visiting!
