This Strange Way of Dying by skdiesel This Strange Way of Dying by skdiesel
A commissioned piece I’ve been working on for the past few weeks for a book cover for a series of short stories titled This Strange Way of Dying. The client wanted a piece with similar themes to the Lady of the Dead, and this is what I came up with. It was fun to re-do the subject matter from an older popular painting of mine and see how much I’ve improved.

This Strange Way of Dying will be available soon in a limited run and electronically.

The skull mask she wears reminds me of those sugar skulls they do down in Mexico for their Day of the Dead celebrations. Looks really beautiful this piece.

The initial painting took maybe 12 hours but there were several rounds of revisions so I'm not sure what the complete time is. Thanks!
