Amore De Mori by S-doll Amore De Mori by S-doll
this piece is finally being shipped off to its new home <3


this was an art trade with the wonderful talented rogue taxidermist, Miss Bonnie Wood. [link]

i was... so so surprised to get a request from her to do the art trade ; A ;

she specifically asked for a symbosis related theme, with the animal skulls~ the color scheme to be similar to my miss dainty fingers small teeth work [link], with red and blue flowers~

i actually went through with some research on the animal skulls and even got myself a book on animal anatomy to draw them accurately...
from the left to the right: cat, bull, jaguar

the deer skull, i had to look online for.... the skeletal part of the deer was a bit made up ; hehe~

here's the rough sketch for it: [link]

I HOPE SHE LIKES IT X_X



i'm honored to get to do these trades with such talented people! :heart:

i really hope it doesnt seem like i'm procrastinating. T_T
work just sucks up SO much of my time and energy... and SCHOOL is starting soon AAAAHHH

i'm already looking forward to winter break so i would be able to curl up next to my heater like a lazy cat and drink hot tea and DRAW PAINT DRAW PAINT DRAW PAINT!

Question: What language is that? Is it supposed to say "Love of Death"? It's a beautiful piece, also.

i'm not sure what the language is, but yes, the title is translated to "love of death".

Thanks for confirming that. I'm just not sure that's a language, seeing as the closest to that version of :love of death" would be "Amor de Mort." Sorry, it's an OCD of mine to point out things like that.

Hahaha no problem x___x if you would really like to know though, i think it would be best to ask bonnie wood, the taxidermy artist who commissioned this piece from me. she's the one who named it and it's a rather interesting and curious name, yet totally relevant to the work she does :- )

Makes me angry too; I can't abide art thieves. The least they could have done is ask your permission to post it first and credit you for the original design. =P

I like the palette and the linework... but the lettering on the bottom is a bit of a turn off, as is the girl's arm. I still like it overall, and I'd love to see you redo this.

It looks even more beautiful with the two sides of green and blue... I love the lettering, the animal skulls are my favourite part. Makes me think of beauty slowly rotting away in the forest.
