Sugar Skull by mr-biggs Sugar Skull by mr-biggs
My version of the traditional sugar skull. I love the day of the dead theme! Done with watercolors. I added the sun rays in photoshop though. Had to put a little digital work in there! :) enjoy...

this is great. Did you outline it in pen before you painted?

I would love to use this for a shirt! I am interested in making my own shirts and this would look perfect! If you were able to send me the original painting without the photoshop work, I would give you full credit for your work :) You are amazing and I am looking forward to more work you create! Happy New Years, all the best! - Meghan

I just started a new group here on DeviantArt called #SugarSkullCollection, and I think this sugar skull art piece would look great in our gallery at [link].

Got this tattoo started as I mentioned the the other day, there are a few alterations from the original design.
But enjoy!
Hope you think it does this proud, outline and shading is done- all the colourwork is to follow in a month or so.

I didn't even think to ask which was very rude of me, but though it's a bit late to ask I figure I should really get your blessing regardless. Tomorrow I'm having this design tattooed on the back of my right calf with a couple of minor alterations, I'll send you pictures of it when it's done and when I do put pictures up will credit you for the original artwork.

It's an amazing image though, love the new school twist you've put onto a classic.

I have a licensing agent who handles how my art gets out there. If they are going to be manufactured for mass sale I would like to talk more. If you are just making a few I would like some to sell myself! that would be rad. But if your out to make some money with my art i would appreciate it if I was included in any business dealings...ya know? gotta protect my investment.
