So, How are we feeling today? by Disty So, How are we feeling today? by Disty
Remake - [link]

Contest for :iconthedeviantartgallery: It is about masks. [link]

So I did a plaugue doctor... thing with the raven mask thing going on.

Not expecting to win this one, just wanted to paint and I have not entered a contest for a whole week.
:iconlaplz:
Not planning this means sloppyness with a lot of this painting. I did not even draw the doctor as practice before I did this. Baaad me.

I really do need direction when I am going to do something. I am so bad with self projects, which are non existing at the moment.

Was done with water colours and Winsor and Newton inks.

To creep people out?

no, they used them because back in their day, they thought that the stench was sickening, so to avoid the stench, they put many good-smelling spices in the beak so they didnt contract the virus

I don't think it's that bad, as you say in your message. I LIKE the idea and that you used watercolor. you in a final poll. Good luck.

My first thought was, Assassin's Creed 2.

I love those masks.

Never played Assassins Creed, so I would not know.

They are awesome masks!

Very iconic and love the colors despite the rush. :D The shape of the mask and hat is suggestive of Spy vs. Spy a little (which is also a bit macabre) which fits nicely rather than distracts. Great job on this !

Spy vs. spy. Is this a video game? I have never heard of it.

Thank you very much!

No, it's a wordless comic strip by Antonio Prohias done for MAD magazine... it's been around for about forty years or so.

Those were some creepy times, much as we glorify the Medieval Days. Great picture; I love the splashes and textures.

They were definitely creepy times. But then they were a very superstitious lot if I remember history correctly.
Yea but you have to admit that glorified medieval times are cool!

Thanks very much!
