Death Becomes Her by Zephyri Death Becomes Her by Zephyri
The sister (arf) piece to this one, featuring yours truly with the devil himself, can be found here: [link]

A Christmas present for my sister, whose name is Beth, the temptation to call this Beth and Death almost overcame me. But she'd probably kick my butt for that. Besides which, I rather like Death Becomes Her. So the gorgeous being you see in this picture is.... the Grim Reaper... *giggles* sorry sis....

Nah, that's my too-pretty-by-far sister pulling off her Botticelli's venus pose, a picture I swore I would make good use of, and so I have. And just for those of you who think I've lost the plot shoving the Grim Reaper behind my sister, she actually has a 'thing' for him, so she liked it. Kinda like putting Satan with a gun behind me. Yummy.

I'm really really happy with this picture, probably my best to date with coloured pencil, if only for the fact it does look like my sister. There are a couple of things I might change given the chance, but I don't feel they detract from the picture *gaspcoughshock*. Now then, if only ol' Grimmy and Lucifer would happen along looking for a couple of willing dates....

Great composition, and meticulous attention to detail make Death Becomes Her by *Zephyri a stand out work of art. Be sure to take a closer look! ( Featured by twosilverstars )

This is extremely amazing. I wish I could draw like this. I'd be drawing characters for my stories :( Do you have any advice for amateur artists like me on how to get better? I know to practice everyday, but I'm usually not motivated enough. Everything I draw doesn't look right to me, so I get rid of it.

My best piece of advice is do some studies of the basics -  anatomy especially if you like drawing characters!
