Dernier Lamento by aruarian-dancer Dernier Lamento by aruarian-dancer
"Dernier Lamento" (Last Lament) -- Tradigital mixed media

I did another piece yesterday with the same experimental approach I used on "Oblivion". This time I got the inspiration for the image from both Astor Piazzolla's tango piece, "Dernier Lamento", and the Victorian death photos, the practice of photographing the recently-deceased either alone or with the loved ones left behind, dressed and posed as if they were still alive.

The black cat has a personal meaning. Anyhow, the piece is about the bond between a beloved animal and a human companion.

This experimental approach is working really well! I've probably said it already, but I love the monochrome and the mood you create. Beautiful work, Mitzi :heart:

Thank you so much, Mayumi! I'm having fun with the new approach. It's almost an instant gratification since it's so much quicker than my other approach. :XD:

You're welcome :heart: I like detailed work, but it's also fun to be able to complete a piece quickly and move on. I think that's why I enjoy drawing ACEOs. :)
