Won't you come along? by Allison-beriyani Won't you come along? by Allison-beriyani
Happy Belated Mardi Gras!

Baron Samedi invites a lost soul along to the greatest party of them all.

This started out as a doodle of people in fancy duds. (yes, his suit is pinstriped. File that under artistic masochism.)
Then they turned into the Baron and a lost soul.
...and then it became a challenge to see if I could work a composition in just yellow, purple and their neutral.
With bonus symbolism and lighting tricks.

I don't plan my work, I just keep getting Ideas.

I like the shadows I'm just not sure about some of the angles, especially around the lamp. Maybe you could have had a few more buildings too as that feels a bit sparse. The characters are compelling and make me wonder what is going to happen next, to seems like she was walking past when he caught her attention.

Technically, it's just a regular dress with a laced back, but I won't dispute the abdominal muscles, as I actually used references this time.

any lacing like that is usually refers to corestery ( by me at least) and the muscles are good, very good

Are we referring to his Coat, Bodypaint, or lack of shirt?
Because all of them are pretty kickass, if I do say so myself.

They are, all three.
Oh, is it bodypaint? I thought maybe someone had made a paper-snowflake out of his shirt and he wore it anyway because it looked awesome that way. Is that a necklace, or more paint?

It's awesome, though...

All the white is paint. I'm doing a more "Extensive study of him and his decoration, but I need to find a way to make it more DA-friendly.
