Memento Mori by K-Koji Memento Mori by K-Koji
Commission for :iconiviernu: of her character Genna . We decided on a slight memento mori theme, but he's also a shaman/necromancer type from a cold country ( I may have explained wrong, for better info, please ask her :nod: ).

I used a texture from: [link]

The forehead decoration on the skull fragment is from: [link]

Other artwork pimpage:

Oh, is that skull a mask or something? Love it, totally love it  (not the skull, although it's a cutie as well, but I meant here overall the work)
Oh, It just itches to go and  tangle more braids >< 
Your work is so wonderful, there is almost nothing to critique... Though if the theme is necromancer-shaman, the roses should be black or at least deep blue XD

Are those runes on the skull? What do those mean?

 Oh this was a commission. I added the roses like that because they tend to die a bit when he's around.

 Thank you!

Oh, so that's how it was... If he was a flower fan, it would be so totally dissapointing for him and onesided ><

A have a little kind of question

How long does it usually take you to paint something amazing like this. And when you start a new project how many hours would you standardly paint per day?

Hi

Thanks for your comments.
It's hard to estimate for me. I'd say they take about a week, from concept to finish. But I sometimes paint for 2 hours one day, maybe 7 hours the next. Sometimes I'm can't paint in the day because Im busy doing other boring things I can't post ( like work). That's why I can only upload things here maybe once every 2 weeks.
But I try and paint as much as I can.

I don't know what Flyleaf is :o

Memento Mori means "Remember your mortality". It's an art theme. Glad you like it tho! :meow:
I don't think it matches that group though.

Not sure what memento mori is or means, but it looks lovely anyways, like always :p

Now, time for the typical response you'll get: OMG it's soooooooo good! I love it!!! *insert random GIF here*

I think he's absolutely adorable and I'm curious as to what the hell is going on in the background :XD:

Memento Mori is Latin for "remember that you are going to die"
