she waits for you. by vmbui she waits for you. by vmbui
This is probably one of my favourite commissions to date. When Jorge asked me to draw a bone-faced girl in a lake, this image came to mind immediately. I love how haunting Dia de los Muertos face painting can be. And I loved drawing this.

I strongly encourage you to check out Jorge’s (*cocoaspen) artwork; he’s a very talented fellow.

This is stunning. Her face paint reminds me of día de los muertos, which is in a few days :)
