23 Days 'Til Halloween - Reaper Gravestone
This is an unexpected new gravestone for the lawn this year. Originally it started as a zombie but while working on went another direction in a moment of "I wanna try something" thinking. The torso is a "blucky" ribcage and head mounted on a post attached to a wood base. I dunked old curtains from my material stash in a 5 gallon bucket of gray colored house paint and draped over the torso. It only took a half hour to make but there's a trade off, it took a good 3 days to harden. I finished by dry-brushing on a lighter shade gray to bring out details and weathered with brown washes. For a creative experiment, I'm really happy with how it turned out.
