Three skeletons dance in the moonlight while a forth plays the lute. Meanwhile, another skeleton emerges from the ground to join the party.
Based on the 1493 woodcut by Michael Wolgemut
This one is a little something I put together for Halloween 2015. The Danse Macabre is a recurring art theme originating in the middle ages. It was particularly present in response to the spread of the Black Death. Technically speaking, the Dance of Death is not originally for Halloween. Rather originated with religious art giving the lesson that death, no matter ones station in life, is common to us all. But, I think it works as a Halloween themed image just fine.
To create this image I used both digital sculpting and painting techniques.
Thanks for looking!
