Very classy I really like the color scheme, The only negative I see is that the shrunken heads on the drums seem a bit too dark its hard to see what they are. which is really unfortunate because I really like the style of them. the bloody hand prints on the drum heads is a really nice touch. so is the skull bra. I think you could have made the cigarette in the cigarett holder slightly longer since it too gets lost a little and it took me a minute to figure out what it was she was holding. every thing else is great.
What do you think?

I agree that the shrunken heads are hard to read, I didn't see them at first! The cigarette/filter doesn't read too well. Almost looks like a paint brush. Perhaps if the filter was thinner and the cigarette longer?

My eye also wants the main portion of the image to be tilted counterclockwise, so the composition is more centered (but that might be more based on personal taste.)

The leaves in the background are pretty awesome, and the negative space with the white is nice, but perhaps the piece could use more of that to "pop" certain elements like the skulls and maybe more of the leaves.

Absolutely gorgeous - everything about this tickles my fancy. =3 The woman's skull headpiece looks so damn amazing, and the skin over the drums almost looks real. Gorgeous!

Thank you! The drums are probably my personal favorite part of the whole image. I've wanted to do something like this for awhile and I was happy when they turned out pretty much as I imagined them :)

oh my god, yes. extremely intelligent palette, the deep tones offset the red enough to make it look radioactive or something! sick, sick, piece.

Thank you. I usually go for brighter colors, but this past year I've been gravitating more towards darker tones and rich colors. They always seem to work better in a lot of ways.

very true. i'm a fan of high contrast so the darker the darks, the better, in my opinion anyways.

Thanks! I have a little bit of a fetish for jungle stuff. I'm already scheming on a companion piece for this. I'm hoping to get another painting done by next week so I'll have a nice selection at the comic convention here in Toronto.

OMG How perfect! Funny this is the sound I had going through my mind but I spent a lot of time listening to some heavy stoner psych rock while painting this, "witch" especially.

Well thats a true compliment coming from the queen of earth and decay colors! I was iffy on the hand prints at first, when I painted the first little one I almost cried out my god I've mucked this one up good...but after I got a few more in there I knew it was the right choice. I feel my block up slipping away slowly. I'm just praying someone will come and steal the playstation and boob tube, then I'll be just fine.

Good to hear your block is on the demise as this piece definitely shows you're on the mend. I'm trying to finish my latest work. It's taken me 5 weeks so far 'cause I just get so damn distracted too. I can't stop adding MORE detail as well, which is even weird for me ha! ha! :shrug:

Everyone seems to love them. They had my kinckers in a knot at first as...
A. I hate drawing hands
B. I hate drawing hands
C. I probably will hate drawing hand prints.

Turns out hand prints are fun. I was wishing I could find someone...or something with really teeny tiny hands to just mash their hands all over everything....but if people that little exist I have yet to see them ;P
