Ethereal Artbook - Calaverita Fiestera by SaiyaGina Ethereal Artbook - Calaverita Fiestera by SaiyaGina

BUY THE ARTBOOK HERE


My contribution for :iconethereal-artbook:, a charity artbook which all profits goes to RedKite, to help children with cancer. 

My approach here is to celebrate life, and a very known festivity here in Mexico is the Day of the Dead, where all your loved ones are always there to cherish and celebrate.
There's actually a rejected version, you can see it in my tumblr ginilla.tumblr.com/post/813577…

Art © Gina Chacón
Done in SAI, Manga Studio 5 and Photoshop CS6

Oye, pues las dos versiones son muy buenas, pero la verdad el hecho de cambiar el cuadro por la delicadeza del fin al que se destinaría el libro me parece bastante apropiado.

A modo personal los dos son excelentes.

Muy bien!!!:happybounce: I am a dummy!

It gives me the impression of a happier version of the Paleman scene from the film Pan's Labyrinth.  ;)

Como esta la ilustración, la mayoría de las casas arman sus altares así. Estos altares que lleva imágenes (fotos del difunto), comida favorita, calaveritas de azúcar o chocolate, todo en nombre del o de los difuntos a recordar. Para nosotros, el 1 y 2° de noviembre (donde se celebra con fuerza la festividad, y dias anteriores para cierto tipo de difuntos) es una forma de demostrar a los que ya se fueron que los amamos y recordamos, es darle la bienvenida a una persona que no has visto en un año, y lo haces en grande.
Siempre pense en punto personal, que "persona que es olvidada, persona que realmente muerta esta", y por eso cuando pensamos en alguien, le dedicamos un platillo, una flor... una frase! sigue mas que viva.

Claro hay muchos conceptos sobre cada elemento de esta celebracion, pero lo que todo significa es el recordar a un ser querido y decirle "sigues aquí".
